Yes, it has been a while since I last updated. I was sick last week and have been too apathetic since then to really do anything. That includes fixing my email server. If you have sent me an email in the past couple of weeks, and it has been returned, I am aware of the problem. You should probably go ahead and update your address book with a new address for me any way. Nine out of ten emails that I receive via the broken email address are SPAM and I am probably going to retire the address. The address I have been using recently is james dot sumners at gmail dot com (spelled out to reduce harvesting attempts); I will update the contact information on this page soon(ish).

I did receive my PowerBook on Tuesday of last week. I have been using it almost exclusively since then and can truly say that I am pleased with the machine. It is exactly what I was looking for in a laptop. There are a couple things that take some getting used to but for the most part it works just like a regular Unix desktop with the added benefit of everything "just working." When I have had some more time to get used to the machine and the operating system I will write a more in-depth review of it.


Speaking of laptops running OS X, I decided to give Cherry OS a spin, regardless of the fact it was a blatent steal of PearPC's code.

Cherry OS currently needs Windows XP to install on top of. This means that the OS X code is being executed along with Windows XP, the biggest RAM whore of software on the market. I couldn't even get the OS X discs to start installing. I gave up after about 30 minutes of mindless suckage.

Hope you get better though.
