(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)


My living room is a little bit of a mess right now. Here's a list of the computers in the picture, from left to right.

The tan box in the lower left is my old Apple 6500. It's a piece of crap, and it won't even boot anymore (might help if I put a hard drive in). But it's still good for ripping parts out of.

Next up, the back box with the mail stacked on top of it is elvis.mu.org. That's what I went to chicago to pick up, and what will be hosting this site again in a week or so. It's a bad-ass machine. You'll find a couple of up-close and personal pictures of it in here.

Next, right below the Ansel Adams picture, and hiding behind a case cover is one of "Apple"'s greatest computers ever- the 8500. What a rocken machine that was back in it's day...

And just to the right of that, we have a little black box with a cd burner stacked on top, and hacked up cdrom stacked on top of that... That little back box is my xbox.

And just to the right of that, under the tilted keyboard is the old mu.org. It used to host this site. Now it's going to find a new home in my apartment.

And the blue curvey looking box to the left of the monitor is my main machine- a "Blue and White G3". I'm beginning to think it's another one of Apple's greatest machines. I've had it for 2.5 years, and I have never had a single problem with it. Never. And I would say it's been turned on for about 99.9% of that time. It's an awesome box. I have a dual G4 at work, and I swear this box is just as fast as it most times.

I am so amazingly tired this morning, it's not even funny.

Good news though- we got the server from chicago. We got home about 7 hours later than we wanted to, but it all worked out in the end. Now I just have to ship them out to Paul, and all will be good. That probably won't happen today though. Hopefully it'll happen tomorrow though.
