This journal is useless. I'm not a blogger (don't think that my daily life is interesting) nor am I a real writer. So I'm not gonna write any more in this useless journal. Nobody reads it anyway. I don't read it.
The imac's drive died. Damn. Now i will have to open it and put in a new one
The Steve Jobs w/cancer episode made me think about what Apple really is. And for all intents and purposes, IMHO Apple == Jobs. If he croaks, so will Apple. I do not doubt that Jonathan Ive is a great designer but without Jobs I don't think he will have much fun at Apple dealing with management weenies.
So I am now considering my next laptop. Maybe I will go all Linux and run it on a Savrow or Voodoo notebook. I have this need for speed and a desire to game every now and then, while I also greatly enjoy running Linux. It's odd - in OSX I hardly every use the command line although it's there - in Linux I am at the command line for at least 60% at the time, feeling powerful. Why would that be?
Today, I went to a small village in central Holland to get a nice iMac (beautiful Indigo specimen) for my kids. Hey, they are of an age that they need to use a computer, might as well get a good one with a good OS that is easy to use. Anyways, they people that had this iMac (and another one, a prime 700 MHz Graphite specimen) also had two Maine Coon cats! These cats are so sweet, it's incredible. They're HUGE but adorable. I want one! Or more. I think our current cat won't have that though.
