MacBook 13", very first thoughts

The new MacBook came in today, and I've been tooling around on it for the last couple hours.

Good:
-- Speed seems good

-- I toyed with my Treo 700w and can shoot pictures across, that is about all.

-- New Trackpad drivers woo yay, it's nice.

Bad:
-- The magnetic power cord will take getting used to. If you pull it straight, it's almost impossible to unplug, however if you breathe on it funny from an angle, it shoots across the floor.

Better luck next time, slugheads

Why am I a good guy? Being a bad guy would fuck with my schedule a lot less than this. Stupid script kiddies.

Of course SuSE fixed it

Not without some seriously non-typical end user junk, but giving up on installing dependencies myself after seeing control-center2 relying on nautilus, and nautilus relying on control-center2, I installed using YAST and it worked fine. I know I should have forced around the dependencies, but please, someone...

Fool me once...

Shame on me, fool me twice, FUCK YOU FREEBSD.

Now it has successfully killed both a desktop AND a laptop without even starting to install. That is some kind of record. If I ever meet Bill Joy, I'm going to punch him in the spleen.

Hey, Thanks FreeBSD Installer!

I'd been looking for a way to turn a running Linux machine into a worthless piece of scrap metal, I just couldn't figure it out myself, thanks for helping.

Former President Bill Klinton uses Voagra!

This is my new second-favorite spam:

Everybody knows the great sexual scandal known as "Klinton-Levinsky".
After the relations like this Klintons popularity raised a lot!
It is a natural phenomenon, because Bill as a real man in order not to
shame himself when he was with Monica regularly used Voagra.
What happened you see. His political figure became more bright and more attractive.
It is very important for a man to be respected as a man!

Who is this stupid really?

What kind of idiot runs an Alpha version of ANY OS distribution? You're looking at him. Yesterday I decided I'd had enough of being paranoid about my music collection not being backed up, and bought a 120GB drive at Staples ($59). The intent was to move my desktop system over to that and I'd have one copy there and one copy on my fileserver.

I was going to download OpenSuSE 10.0 but for some reason didn't, and decided to use 10.1 Alpha. That was dumb.

I backed up my config from the old disk and moved it over to the fileserver, everything except my X11 config, which is a fairly large mistake in itself, and proceeded with the install.
