So I did it. I'm now the proud owner of a Powerbook G4 of some description. More importantly I also have a copy of Mac OS X: The Missing Manual, 2nd Edition so I can learn how to use it. And this coming weekend is three days long as there's a public holiday on Monday which would be a perfect time to acquaint myself with my new toy.
But that's not what's going to happen. Oh no. We are all under dire threats from gnat to get the Template Toolkit book finished by this time next week. So all Mac-ish thoughts will be banished this weekend as I get with the writin'. Honest!
