The Mac Mini arrived today at lunch time, and of course Mary and I promptly went out for the afternoon, and I have yet to start it up, but I plan on doing that in the next few minutes or so, meaning that the monitor is going with the new computer. I have a ton of stuff to move over, but it'll all get moved somehow. Thank heaven for home networks.

I'm watching something on Turner Classic Movies as I'm doing this. Just a minute ago they had Bill Haley and the Comets doing a rockin' instrumental. The (standup) bass player was a riot; he was on his back playing it, riding it like a horse, carrying it like a guitar, etc....I never tried anything like that.

I realized something today: Mary and I have seen The Good Shepherd and Night at the Museum in the last week, and both movies featured the lead character being urinated on. I know, I'm strange.....

Coming to you from the Mac now! This is definitely a different experience, but not an unpleasant one. I'm sure I'll get used to this eventually. I've already downloaded Firefox, so that much of it is the same as my old environment. Safari seems like a nice browser, but it's not what I'm used to, and this is one of those times when you want an old friend around.

More later, as I get things moved over.
