I haven’t had a new gadget in quite some time, mostly due to the fact that I’ve sworn them off as evil minions of Satan (and being on hold with gadget company tech support is much like Purgatory). Still – I’ve been secretly pining for a Mac for years, ever since I had a Quadra 950 on my desk back at Penn in the early 90’s.
My good friend Boobers came through for me and gave me his old PowerBook G4 12″ for free. Gratis. No-ey money-o.
I’ve been playing with it on and off all day, and – no surprise – I constantly have a terminal window open. OS X is way cool.
