The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Of Macs and Politics

I was thiiis close! SP3 update to XP broke Boot Camp. Wasted a day hoping I could fix it. When will I ever LEARN! YOU CAN’T FIX WINDOWS!

Ever the contrarian, I updated my work laptop to a maxed out MacBook. After a couple of years working in Linux alongside Windows the Mac OS seems at once logically familiar but with a robust and really clever interface. Smoother than a shaved eye brow!

And best of all I will shortly have finished transplanting my old and revitalised Windows environment living inside and alongside of the Mac. Twice the fun! The department hasn’t come up with a boot camp image so stuff ’em. I’ve rolled me own! Should be able to inject Windows with Boot Camp and Parallels into some other macs in under an hour. Even geeky stuff is easier.

I tell people that the only reason that Macs are so good now is because they are finally PCs! Hopefully I will just be able to do more of what I need to do without continually wrangling WIndoze – an operating sytem that really confuses the medium for the message.

Apart from the last week or so of shifting virtual house Australian Politics is pretty tedious at the moment. Presuming Rudd intends to deliver, the big policy actions are still months away, and will be rolled out up to and form the basis of the campaign for the next election.

Oh yeah… and before that I built a community organisational website with forums.

And so it goes.
