meet macbook mingus

Well, I must say... 30 is off to a great start. I have spent this birthday week feeling overwhelmed by love and support. Thanks to everyone involved :) To cap what is has been an utterly fantastic week, I'm now the proud new owner of a shiny macbook pro. Check a huge one off the ol' wishlist. I'm excited - *very* excited - to be in the land of intel. Parallels here I come!

First impressions? Um, this thing is fast. So much faster than anything I've owned so far. Wow.

So, like any self-respecting geek.. I belaboured the machine naming process and finally settled on "mingus" (yes after the Jazz great). Let the games begin!
