New toy

| No Comments

My new titanium PowerBook G4 arrived this morning!

Spent much of the day copying files over from old PowerBook, setting things up, cleaning out some old cruft.

Fast, sleek, higher-resolution than old system, enough disk space to last me a while. Very pleased.

Not as much of a jump as I'd originally hoped, because I stopped using my previous PowerBook G3 a few months ago in favor of one belonging to work, so the new machine is just an incremental step up from the one I've been using, even though it's a huge step up from the last one I owned. But I'm much more comfortable owning my own computer than using one that belongs to my company; the computer industry never engenders a strong sense of job security (even though I have no reason to think that my current job will go anywhere), and anyway I like to be able to keep as much personal stuff as I want on the computer without worrying about whether my company would approve.
