The subject really says it all... except for what I'm going to write about which wasn't covered in the subject.
... okay, that was a waste of space.
Been busy... very busy. A new activity? Joining and coming to terms with the Mac community.
This isn't actually to difficult as it has a similar feel to the Linux community. Though I would have to say that the level of ferver and devotion differs in intensity and direction.
So I am now a proud and exceedingly happy owner of an iBook.
It's very very white.
In typical fashion, I started using it by dumping as much stuff I could find for the Mac on it.
And when I was done wasting time, I started customizing it: Chobits Desktop Images.
And more customizations: Wireless Airport card.
And yet more: iTunes store and iPhoto pictures.
Somewhere between buying the iBook and now, I managed to get my home hooked up on 802.11b.
Did a bad bad thing.... I mixed brands.
My Tivo has a Linksys USB wireless module.
My Windows XP PRo system has a Netgear USB wireless module.
And my iBook has it's internal Airport card.
Sadly, my Linux system isn't participating since I ran low on funds(bills).
The good news: They all play nice together.
The bad news: My place's walls seem to be made out of lead. From my computer room to my living room, a distance of a mere 30', the signal strength was cut in half.
Wardriving around my place? Forget about it. Short of parking my car under my window, no signal gets out of my place further than about 15'. Now... someone with a pringles can... that's a different story.
Waiting for my so-called 3g 1x phone.
Next project: wifi file server and print server.
