Shiny new computer is shiny and very smooth, and very elegant. I love the illuminated keyboard and the beautiful bright display. The touch-pad is a mixed blessing - I think once I get used to only using one finger pretty much for everything I'll be okay, but I've been accidentally resizing the display (with the "pinch to resize" feature) which is a bit annoying. It's nice having more than 5 hours of battery life, though. I can't say that Leopard is any noticeably huge improvement over Tiger, but a Mac is a Mac, and that means Computery Goodness :-) And a faster, more up-to-date, with-more-memory Mac is excellent.
Yesterday, brinian came for a visit, bringing her two lovely beardie boys, Brin and Eri, with her. I think Robinson really enjoyed the company, and it was lovely to see them all interacting. Of course, I have photos:
This is Robinson meeting Brin
And here are Robinson and Eri together, looking goofy
You can, of course, see more on my Flickr photostream.
brinian very generously took me out to lunch, and we went to Spinnakers and sat overlooking the harbour and then walked along the Westsong for a bit and drove around the scenic drive before coming back to my place for a photoshoot. It was a delightful afternoon!
