Hi. I used to use this blog a lot more than i do now. I don't agree with much of what i've posted here, but such is the nature of time. :) My instagram & facebook are likely to be more up to date.

geeking out

>> Wednesday, March 12, 2008

i've haven't been blogging for a minute because i have been geeking out... working on this, my new macbook:


it's a bit of cognitive dissonance for me, as i have issues with the environmental impacts of computers, but i assuage my guilt by buying refurbished and from small retailers. also, what work one does with a computer has the potential to offset the (very real) harm done during the manufacturing process. not that i'm sure i accomplish that, but it is a goal.

in more light news, i found some great little thingies to spruce up leopard:

interfacelift has great collections of icons including the samurai set and black set used above. you can switch the (stark and cold) icons that come with leopard with a nice little app called candybar. interface also has wallpapers, including the steven miller photo above. i usually make my own, but i don't have any for this wide aspect ratio yet. i might try to upload some of my images to that site. it seems like a nice piece of free audience/advertising.

i have some more exciting music and food posts coming this week, if i can stop geeking out!

we gave it an airport card and maxed out it's ram and now it's laura's.

but, we do still have the old g3 ibook, which might be o.k. the airport in it is actually in high demand because apple doensn't make that kind anymore, the screen works, the cd-burner works and the hard drive is fine, but it needs a new mother board like this one.

also, there are a lot of cheap computer options right now. call me some time, and we can discuss them.

got money? feed kids!
