I've been installing software. It comes with emacs, but not a GUI emacs. I downloaded a build of emacs for OS X, but it wouldn't run the precompiled VM elc files that work on the standard emacs. I'm running emacs from a terminal window now while I find time to debug further.
For irc and AIM I'm using Fire. It took a little while to work out its model, but it's great. AIM and irc in the one program. Slurp. I avoided Ircle because it takes $$$ and I'm not used to this brave new world of paying for software.
Adjusted the keyboard repeat speed to fast with little delay. Figured out what the different power cables are for, thanks to #perl, and got the battery charged. Spent a fun few hours in my easy chair, working.
Grabbed VNCViewer built for OS X and installed that. Used it to control my Windoze box while I was upstairs. Enabled 'remote logins' on the System Preference, aka sshd. Then scp-ed mailboxes from machine to machine.
Pudge is sending me the DV files of my YAPC movie so I can continue editing. There are pauses I want to remove, titles to add, and so on. Meanwhile, Joe Johnston has created a techno remix of YAPC that's a ton of fun. Someone take Cakewalk Pro away from him before he remixes again!
