it finally happened… pure bliss!

i now have a mac! it came last week and i’ve been working with it since. i haven’t slept much in the past week either, but i’m happy. it’s a 15″ powerbook with souped up vram and dvdrw. :) i’m soo happy… (e gave it to me for v-day)

however, i haven’t kept up with mac news because i never thought i’d actually own one. it’s very strange not knowing lots about the system you are using.. now i know how my clients feel!

as far as software, i’m slowly finding my way and have found a few great tools. i’ve started to use ecto for blogging (when at home) thanks to fred @ megatokyo. i need to find a good personal finance program.. i guess i’ll buy quicken but want to see if there is something else? i’m happy the pbook comes with a “new user” version of quickbooks.. it doesn’t do all that i want, but it’s a big improvement over my previous er.. “method”. i also need to figure out how i want to do about email.. i’m a vm user and had been using various windows based applications the past few years because of too many sad and pathetic reasons. i use mutt a lot of the time as well… i’m currently using apple’s mail program and i don’t like it at all.. hmm.. i’ll explore what’s out there.
