New Mac

My brand spanking new G5 turned up today.

Talk about a thrill.

Actually I'm not sure it's that much of a thrill. I mean, once you've got used to the Mac it's not like getting a new one lets you do anything particularly new and exciting. On the other hand it certainly looks the bill and Twin Processors, 4 Cores, 2GB Ram . . . there's a core geekness there that demands respect.

Plus I don't have a crappy plasma but a proper 75Mhz gigantic monitor that takes two people to move. Actually I'm going to have to get a crappy plasma if I want to use the second screen facility, but there you go, beggars can't be choosers.


My friend's wife got him a Wii as a surprise present. Talk about cossetting . . .

Hmmm... I am sure this is just sour grapes on my part but I think that lavish and surprise presents to a spouse can mean a couple of things.. not least: "I am guilty of some badness and I want to make it up to you..." or "DON'T LEAVE ME DON'T LEAVE ME DON'T LEAVE ME DON'T LEAVE ME!.."

I get what you're saying Pomme and have to agree. The alternative, that after X number of years of married life "I still think about your every waking need" is just . . . creepy ;-)
