Migration and Lance

awright, I got my iPhone talking to my new user account. All I did was tell the "Applications" tab to sync with my iPhone, and it copied the apps to my new iTunes install. Then I did the "wipe", letting iTunes blow out my iPhone's music library. At this point…

Oh, and...

now my Time Capsule is not recognized by my new user account on my new machine. Soooooo glad I tried using the "easy" migration fucking "wizard" to make all this fucking bullshit easy. GOD DAMMIT. Will hit this in the morning after a night's rest. I'm sure I can solve…

Feel the Rage

I fucking hate this shit. New computer, started setting up, got my iTunes all dialed in, then realized my goddamned motherfucking iPhone is really not interested in syncing with my new setup. Apparently, I was supposed to use the Apple Migration Assistant. That utility is fairly impressive, but now my…

Speedy

3421 seconds. That's how long it took my new laptop to render the de facto radiance benchmark scene. That's good enough for 13th place on the list, not bad for a laptop marketed to college kiddies and soccer moms. My old laptop is 36% slower in this test, and cost…

Good and Bad

Well, it's been a few days now, and I have good news and bad news about the new MacBook Pro. First off, it's fast; much faster than my old Powerbook, but then again my old Powerbook is four years old and that's not a fair comparison. Regardless, I'm pleased as…

Woohoo!

It's here! My new MacBook Pro! OS X running on a dual-core Intel. Backlit keyboard. 15.4" screen. Friggin' great. So far, so good, but a few bumps in the road too. For some reason, I can't connect to my wireless router, so I'm leeching off of a less-than-clued-in neighbor's…
