Late Christmas for Simon…
… or is that H-E-double-hockey-sticks has frozen over? 😀 Another computer has arrived at the ii Worldwide Headquarters, and it’s not a Mac. What’s that, you say?
Yes, it’s true. It’s a Dell. But there’s a good reason for it: it was freakin’ cheap, at $63.40 for a 3 GHz machine to replace the old 350 MHz Mac G3 that has powered this site for years. I’ve just powered it up for the first time (and tested my new gigabit ethernet switch — sweet!) and now I’ve got to install a new OS and all the software necessary. Hopefully this will mean a minimum of disruption to the ii News (and sister publications), but who knows?
It is Windows, after all. (m)
