Well, after a long hiatus that I really have zero reason for having taken, I am back to the blogging world and plan to be at it for a long time! I’ve made some changes to my machine line up. I’ve finally given over to the ‘dark side’ and purchased my first Intel. I acquired, off a buy/sell/trade group on Facebook, a 2008 MacBook and it has taken over as my primary machine, as it is by far more powerful than my other computers and has way more storage space. (And I mean WAAAAAAAY more!) While I love my PowerPC machines, they have been holding me back on my productivity with my photography and graphic design needs and are now basically regulated to gaming. While I can still do all of my Photoshop-ing and Flash builder-ing on those computers, it can take forever to load a simple filter and would take me three times longer to complete a composite or finalized photograph than it does with the MacBook.
That being said, I still use my mini as much as I possibly can. I still play all of my old games on it and use it for music management. I’ve even been contemplating turning it into a little server! So, don’t worry-I haven’t forgotten about the PowerPC and how it’s still useful, nor will I ever give up on the best little machines Apple ever produced. (I just need a little more oomph under the polyurethane to finish all my new projects!)
