Packed!

Smiling
Ok, so after going to Festival Kinetik last week (where I nearly snapped my neck ogling!), I booked up this weekend pretty solid: going to Mutek Nocturne 3 and 4 (Friday and Saturday), the Beer Fest on Saturday, the Tour de l'île on Sunday and She Wants Revenge on Monday. It will be both intense and awesome, I think!

Gifted myself with an iMac 24" this weekend (the big one with the GeForce!), ostensibly for my birthday, and managed to play some Battlefield 2142, for, uh, "testing". The testing is pretty conclusive, and it's quite awesome. And, oh, so silent, yet so powerful! I will also be looking forward faster compiling on my old laptop through Xgrid.

I've also come up with a design in my head for doing zero-overdraw overlapping windows with support for alpha transparency. I'm dreaming of a "Quadra HD", and while I don't really know what it'd look like, I know that according to historical figures for development speed, we should release that around 2012 or so! I also got a "pre-opened" gamepad last week, which will allow for adding support for it in Quadra, which has been requested since more or less forever. That could be here as soon as 2009! ;-)

I've got Saturday afternoon slotted for this, in between the two Mutek Nocturnes. :-)

did you pay it full price or does your employer provide you with access to the Apple "company store", until they actually buy them out[1]?








[1] just a fantasy. I'm convinced they'll try to expand vertically at one point, and I don't see them buying a Linux vendor.

Yep, company discount at work, but the list of places with discounts is so long, it's not exactly specific to Apple. I doubt it's as good as the discount to Apple employees, but a discount is always welcome!
