iPod Collection

My iPod collection is nearly complete. I bought a 2nd gen today.
This means I have the one 2nd gen.
1 3rd gen.
two 4th gens.
4 5th gens.

Maybe one day I will find a first gen with the real scrolling scroll wheel. I'd also like to get my hands on an iPod touch but I'm not too worried about that now.

Macbook Pro, iBook Keys

Because I had nothing better to do today at work, I took all the letters and punctuation off an iBook keyboard I had lying around. I also used the tab, caps lock, return, etc. just so I could have the 3 rows completely white.

Theres actually a few benefits to doing this:
The ENTIRE key now glows when I turn on the keyboard light- it looks way cool!

Back Online

After a while with no internet, I'm glad to be back.

I've finally got my first computer job!

Very Impressed with Apple Support

On Tuesday my 15" Macbook Pro battery stopped charging. Fearing the worst, I kept it plugged in and let it sit overnight. On Wednesday, it still would not charge, so I started looking online for possible solutions. Finding nothing of much value, I decided to just call Apple.

Its Official, I've Switched

So I got this Macbook Pro for my birthday, on the 13th of January. Previously, I'd been using primarily Windows XP and OS 9 on my Powerbook 1400.

I got a MacBook Pro!

2.16GHz Core Duo, 1 gig RAM, 128MB VRAM, 120 gig HD.

This is by far the most powerful and expensive computer I have ever used. It is the only computer I have ever gotten new. It is also my very first OS X machine.

All in all, I'm loving it.

Posting from a Sony Ericsson with Opera Mini!

I was able to download and install Opera Mini on my Z500a, and now I can post to AF anywhere! I'm posting this right now from it.

I now work for Togo's Great Sandwiches.

I finally quit my job at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk! Believe it or not, but that is a terrible place to work. I now work at the Togo's in Watsonville, CA, and that is a much, much more enjoyable job. I just need to eat before I go to work! Wink

Job, gas, and other worries.

So life's kinda hectic lately. I got a job, at the Boardwalk, working weekends for $7.25 an hour. So I get to drive somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 miles a week. Thats insane. Plus, I go to Castroville almost every Saturday, and most Sundays, too. Jeez. I have $20 in the bank. It costs me more than that to fill up my tank. I have half a tank left.

So I have a Job

As of today, I work at the Seaside Company, AKA the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California.
This is my first real job, I'm slightly scared.

Anyway, I'm real excited and I thought I'd share the news.
