    Specs:
    21" 3.6GHz Core i5 iMac, 12GB Crucial RAM
    Behold, the new computer hath arrived!
    How appropriate is it I find myself more stuffed up than a 13-year old girl's bra at the end of the work week (when my good stay-home from work excuses were clearly scheduled to have arrived no later than Tuesday)? Sadly the boss doesn't look kindly on wild or sudden Bubonic plague claims anytime of the working week, which is somewhat ironic considering he's a rat, so I suppose I can man-up and grind it and actually show up to work tomorrow. Yes, I know...bad economy boogymen are right-this-very-moment lurking in some dark alley somewhere, ready to jump out and remind me to be thankful to have a job I can weasel out of occasionally, and yet somehow its hard to be overjoyed about a job that sucks slightly more than a Taiwanese hooker on double-coupon night.

    Thankfully the last of my computer arrived on the Fedex truck today, so its a good thing I stayed home!

    So I've been furiously assembling, copying, cleaning, and generally getting everything ready for the big move. Booted up today and loved it so far. 12 GB of RAM makes a huge difference! Sadly no sound yet. I'll have to re-run some wire for my Monsoon flat-panel speakers, but wow! Anyway as part of my appreciate to all your suggestions and such, I thought I'd give you a teaser picture shortly after boot up.



    Thanks so much for all your help guys! I look forward to picking (and possibly lobotomizing) your brains in the future.

    I hope your boss isn't a mac owner and a member of this site, or we'll be seeing a lot more of you on this site after a week.

    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
