This thing is Bullet Proof!

I'M BACK! It's been forever since I last visited this website.

I was very sad recently to find my 2nd gen iPod nano in the washing machine. It was my first and to this day only iPod and it worked great. I was afraid it would finally be the end of it's time and I would need to replace it. Luckily, my dad was able to dry it out and it was functional again. It doesn't sync properly anymore, but I'm happy with the playlist currently on it.

No More PowerMacs :(

So my family was cleaning out my brother's bedroom, and a discussion started about what to do with the Power Mac G4, and the Power Macintosh G3 8600 that my dad had sitting in the corner. Of course, I offered to take them off my hands, but he decided to take them to work, and put them to "real use" in his words. I'm pretty much broke at the moment, and I wanted to add to my collection. Now I guess I have to save some money to get a few retro Macs.

My Bedroom - iMac Idea

I have an idea for decor for my room. I was looking at my wall trying to think of what could fill that empty table in the corner.

I think it would look awesome. Any thoughts?

Happy (late) Birthday iMac!

The iMac G3 was my first computer. I used my dad's Quadra before that, but the iMac was the first computer that was mine. I still remember my dad lifting it out of the box, and how amazed I was. I was mesmerized by it's Bondi Blue awesomeness. All the computers I had seen previous to it were ugly beige boxes, and it was beautiful. Since I was a kid, and I had small hands, the hockey puck mouse was perfect sized for me. The entire system was awesome. I loved that computer, but unfortunately, we… Continue

Mac Mini - One Month Old

I've had my Mac Mini for just over a month (I got it a month before yesterday), and I've been loving it ever since. It felt like there was no learning curve. I just got it right away. This is by far my favorite computer I've ever used (other than the Mac Pro at the Apple Store). Leopard is beautiful, and makes Windows look like a joke. The iLife suite is just awesome. I'm very happy with this purchase, and I'm getting very close to finishing off my payment to my parents. Only $95 to go!
