Where did that week go, then? I’ve been a bit quiet for the past few days because my main computer (hey, I’m a software developer in real life – I’m allowed to have loads of them) finally ground to a halt and I took the opportunity to do what I’ve always wanted to do and buy myself an iMac. I did this after working onsite at a client recently and noticing that they do all their development on iMacs – Windows and all. (I know people have told me this before, but I didn’t really believe it until I saw it.) And my God, is it a sexy beast! Finally, a user interface that’s been designed by someone who actually seems to use an interface every now and then. Not only that, but once I’d installed Parallels, it does indeed run Windows stuff alongside. Even better, it should also do the same for my Linux stuff once I’ve installed that as well. (And now that I come to think about it, Solaris 10 as well maybe – now that’s really scary.)
The only problem is that I’ve had to extract all my stuff from that clunky old PC and bring it across, including the mail, which is an absolute nightmare. So that’s why I haven’t updated this place for a few days. Normal service will resume shortly. Along with stuff about writing instead of techie porn.
