12:34 pm - Setting up this laptop

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I'm setting up this laptop to be a nice development environment when I'm in a coffee shop or traveling. It's a very time consuming process. I wish there was a DVD or CD I could stick in that would install it all for me.

I did find a nice LiveJournal client for Mac OS X though. It's called Xjournal, and unlike the one I use under Linux, the guy who writes this one seems very committed to making it user friendly. The Linux one isn't bad mind you, it's just that this one has a higher level of quality that I've come to expect in Mac OS X programs.

Do you have 10.3 yet? Do you wanna hook a brother up?

They're going to send me an upgrade disk. I might give you a copy if you lived closer. Transferring it over the net would take a long time.

Oops, I had you confused with agnosticfont. *grin* Sure, I'll give you a copy of my upgrade CD/DVD then. :-)

It's going to be like 3 CDs. (It's not an upgrade...it's a full set of discs. I'll get you a trio of blank CD-Rs...just let me know the time/place.)

And I'll owe you some fontage for this. We'll work something out.

I didn't get OS X 10.3 until I got to Seattle. :-/ I'll try to remember to bring it with me when I visit Minneapolis in early July. :-)

X Journal

is pretty good. I have both a PC and iBook, and Xjournal is the best client I've found.

Actually, I found that iJournal works quite well for my purposes as well.
