goodbye, 1997. hello, 2001.

Well, I finally did it. Throwing caution to the wind, I jumped head-first into 5 years in the past and finally have OS X running on my Mac at home. I have to say, I'm loving it. I have a used G4 that I just configured to run everything, after installing a DVD drive and reformatting the harddrive.

Now the only problem is that I don't have any applications for it. I spent a few minutes dragging and selecting items on my desktop with the new Wacom tablet I bought, but that's about it. Oh, and I downloaded some Widgets. Most unique of them for me has to be the SMPTE calculator widget. Good stuff.

So, now I just need to get Photoshop, Office, Flash, Logic, and maybe the most recent Myst game. I'm also really excited because the installation of OS X Tiger now means that I can finally use the iPod Amanda and her parents got me for Xmas. I can't wait to download videos for it. I can't wait to try and put together a little collection of my favorite music videos. So far I know I want to snag Weapon of Choice, Bedtime Stories, Free As A Bird, and some Bjork stuff. I haven't watched those videos in a long time and they've stuck in my mind since I saw them. Can't wait to try and find them again.

Anyway, that's my big new news. Bignoonoos? Bignunus? Sure, bignunus. Why not.

Funny, you've got a G4 running OS X with a new DVD drive. It really is 2001 for you. But hey, 2001 is better than 97.

"97!!!!! 97 Baby!!!!!!!"

Oh yeah ... Chris '97 made all of his "phat money" that year. I forgot. How come he never shared any with us?

Do you think .... maybe ... that he - gulp - didn't make any phat money that year?!
