Goings on

Key points of what I've been up to:

1) The G3 Powerbook is now running OS X for the first time in its life. I have it using 256 MB of RAM. It's not enough but I'm suffering not having any low density memory of any useful size. I also need to replace the motherboard battery because it loses the date and time on power off.

2)Frank the PC who became an iTunes server, died a sudden horrible death. I was able to replace it with a G4 PowerMac and it's much nicer. I was able to recover most of the music and import it back into the new iTunes. It's now called PowerFrank.

3)I am still using a Mac Mini at work. I've had my eye on getting a new iMac or Mini for home use but I can't quite justify it yet. Perhaps at the bare minimum I'll get myself a bluetooth dongle because I really enjoy not having to use the overly sensitive data cable my cellphone has.

4)Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn is still my linux distro of choice. I have testing out 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon in a virtual machine at work since update traffic is free. It's shaping up to be a very nice release and I'm looking forward to October.
