Hello folks, I would like to introduce you to .... Georgia. As in O'Keefe.
She is a lovely, brand new (as in picked up last night) MacBook Pro with a Intel Core i5 and running Snow Leopard.* Her graphics are crisp, her keyboard action is lovely, and she is (in the words of the Sydney seagulls in Finding Nemo) mine..mine...mine...
Who knew that getting rear-ended could have such a pleasant fallout? Not that I would recommend it as a matter of course...
I have been having some connectivity problems which may or may not continue. I still have to get everything set up correctly. All of this means:
Hopefully more writing.
I can finish setting up my spreadsheet which will allow me to set prices on the jewelry I hope to sell on Etsy before too long (I figure with ten necklaces and the same number of bracelets I have enough stock to at least get started).
Job searching should be easier.
I can return to hanging out at Starbucks, which, believe it or not, I find more productive than working at home. (I do buy stuff, I promise. I do not simply freeload.)
I currently have no access to the latest edition of MS Office, which means that I will need to download Open Office or some other open source software, or resort to using Google Docs.
*What the heck is Apple going to do when they run out of large cat names?
