Gained 2 inches in one day

[ #37517 ]

I just moved all my stuff from a 15" inch MacBook Pro to a 17" using the migration assistant, I skimmed an article on the subject briefly.

I have attempted to use it earlier on older versions of OSX without much luck, but this time it worked out.

I bought the 17" for a temp doing work for me. He moved on to another job. I had seen brian d foy's 17" MacBook Pro in Oslo, which he placed in the middle of the sole desk there and left on - a very nice machine. I have sworn to the 15" since my first TiBook, the 15" machine being leftout now is my third 15" inch - I wonder if I will ever be able to go back to that series again.

The screen is very powerful and the resolution matches my external display, so I do not experience the hard edges, that stop me from moving the mouse pointer between the display.

I did do one mistake and that was creating a user with the same name as on my 15", so I ended up with two users (jonasbn and jonasbn2), so I had to pull some stunts to get jonasbn2 to become jonasbn, like ChangeShortName has become easier and the tool is not necessary.

It seems as if everything got transferred, the only thing causing some confusion was a new /etc/hosts. I do wonder however why Unix was never gifted with the possibility of using a ~/.hosts, who do you write to get this feature?

Anyway, the 17" works magnificently and it incredibly fast. The 15" might be donated to my wife who is running on a PowerPC based iBook, which I bought for her a loooooong time ago, I mean, in case she reads this, not so long ago...
