I got a little chunk of money from my dearly departed Uncle Dan, bless his heart and may he rest in peace. If I’m careful I’ll pretty much be able to live off it for the next few months, but before I go back into perma-budget mode, I splurged on something. I bought a Mac Mini. :-) The idea is, as soon as I get my data crap moved over, I’m gonna Craigslist (or donate) my old Windows PC and permanently make the switch to all Mac, all the time. I am so excited about this, I can’t even tell you! It’s been years since I’ve done anything on the PC that I can’t do on the Mac; all my software investments for the past 3 or 4 years have been for the Mac. The only reason I’ve kept the PC around is for websurfing, because I really love my Dell flat-panel monitor. So now I can get rid of the big-ass clunky-ass PC, clear off a whole lotta real estate on my desk, and still use the pretty monitor. YAY!!! And I’ll be able to clear out a whole lot of dinosaur software and half-broken hardware laying around my apartment — god, some of it’s ten years old or more. Good fuckin’ riddance.
