Power to the Meek

I've got 13" - and I'm not afraid to use it.

Oh clean it up people!

I mean, in theory: I WISH! But I'm not talking about that. You big pervs. You should all be required to stay 1,000 yards away from schools and playgrounds.

I was talking about my brand spanking new MacBook Pro. Or as I call it - my surprise birthday present. ...and this 13" has more power and will get used more than that. Ok, this one isn't mine. I couldn't take a picture of mine because I have yet to take it out of the box. I'm too excited and nervous to actually set it up and use it. Odd but true.

Of course, there is the daunting task of migrating five plus years of information on my old PowerBook G4 over to a new machine.

Last April I posted about the current laptop going south. There is no unplugging this for any period of time, as the battery just dies. There is a slowness to it too, but it's been a great machine and has lasted what I think is a very long time. I think we'll clean it up and have be Denton's office computer

Yes, I had a hard drive malfunction, which irks me to this day. Not because of the machine, but because of Apple's "Genius" bar. Douchebags.

So yes, the new MacBook has a built in camera - so look out. More pictures? iChat? Video Blogging? All real possibilities. In theory.

I'll just assume I do/will not come across all that well in video. I'll have to attend the Lee Strasburg School of Acting and take lots of diction lessons before that happens. And maybe get some plastic surgery.

Who knows exactly what Denton unleashed when he got me the new purchase. Of course, I have to actually take it out of the box for any of those possible functions to happen. I probably will today.

Naturally, Becky had to rub in that she has 15" MacBook Pro. Size Queen King.

Mine's 15" too. ;D

Oh, honey, you're gonna think you've died and gone to heaven. I LOVE my MBP. Her name is Miranda. (She's smart, fast, and sleek, so of course she's a woman.)

The only lesson Lee Strasburg needs to teach you is how to smile, dammit.

The migration shouldn't be too painful. You can either FireWire the things, or dump the G4 stuff onto an external drive.

Or fileshare between the two over wifi.

And there is a way to boot up the G4 in external drive mode, then you should be able to copy right to your new baby.
