Getting a new Mac this month!

So I'm pretty excited, because this month is the month I buy a new G4 desktop. It's been 3.5 years since I updated, and the system is sorely in need of it - a beige G3 just doesn't run OS X fast enough to be usable. So whatever Steve unveils in the next few weeks, I'm getting - most likely the mid-range system, but if I can possibly afford dual processors I'm doing that. Money is a bit tight to spring for the flat-panel display, so that will have to wait. Which kind of sucks.

Money is a bit tight to spring for the flat-panel display, so that will have to wait. Which kind of sucks. Do I need an adapter to hook up my existing VGA display to a GF4 Titanium? I'll have to investigate that...

We just took a drive today up to Southborough, Mass. It's a pretty area up there - a private school in town invited me back for a second interview to be their IT manager, and I'm hopeful that they'll make me an offer. After nearly 5 months of not working, I'm ready to jump back into the fray. It hasn't felt like a vacation. On the bright side, my cooking is getting very good, especially the Chinese recipes.

I'm going to try and post in this journal more, and be more interesting about it. In the meantime, you can see up-to-date info about my wife and me at our web site, DougandDaisy.com.
