New Toy

October 24, 2008

I took the plunge last week and ordered a new MacBook Pro.  Here are the particulars:

15.4″ 1440 x 900 LED-backlit glossy display

2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU w/ 3MB on-chip L2 cache

1066MHz front side bus


250GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics processor w/ 256MB GDDR3 RAM

Put shortly, it f’ing COOKS!  It’s quite a step up from my lowly Mac Mini.  And to top it all off, I’ve got it all h4x0r3d up to use my iPhone as a tethered wireless internet bridge.  It’s pretty darn slow, since it’s going over the 2G EDGE network (I haven’t upgraded to the new iPhones yet).

If anyone’s wondering how to do this, it’s pretty easy using the NetShare iPhone app which basically turns the iPhone into a SOCKS proxy.  Unfortunately, NetShare was removed from the App Store about 1 day after it was released.  bummer.

This new wordpress app is pretty nifty.

I can even attach cool photos from my iPhone like this one of a sweet van mural:



I am weak

July 11, 2008

I gave up.  I quit.

I had a place in line at the Southlake AT&T store and had been there since 7:00am that morning.  At 8:50, I finally gave it up and went in to work.  I figure it’s still the first month at Citigroup, I probably shouldn’t show up late too much. 

Oh well.  Maybe I’ll wait for the 32GB model.

PS in case you live in an FLDS compound, I’m talking about the new iPhone 3G that came out today.

Tonight was a great episode of Lost. We had good friends, good brews, and good boar! Yes, that’s right. I finally got around to cooking some boar for a Lost party!

I also had the chance to contribute to the famed LostCast podcast. W00t!
