Today is a momentous day.

I’m about to switch off my Windows server. It’s been running for nearly three years (with frequent reboots for security patches), doing file serving (now done by the Mac Mini that hides behind the TV), Bittorrent client duties (ditto), DVD burning (ditto), DNS and DHCP serving (the lil’ ADSL router), and Exchange serving (.Mac can replace almost all of this, except for task-list syncing, which I will miss). This is the last Windows box I own (well, there’s the desktop that’s on loan to Mum and Dad), and it’s about to be shut off.
So here goes… let’s hope I haven’t forgotten anyt44hl4$^H@#$J@$ … NO CARRIER …
…just kidding.
So would anyone like to buy a computer? P3-933, shiny aluminium Lian-Li case, half a gig of RAM, and about 250GB of assorted disks, works beautifully with Windows 2003 Server? I’m not gonna chuck it on eBay – I want it to go to a good home. Shoot me an email.

    Good… good…
    Your training is now complete.
    I can feel the hatred for Bill Gates flowing through you…

    Don’t get your hopes up. As soon as I get my Macbook Pro, I’m gonna install Parallels Desktop and have a nice little virtual machine going.

    And when are you getting this MacBook pro? And will you be selling your slightly older machine at a reasonable price.

    Probably September 5th, because that’s when the updated MBPs are likely to be released.
    And yeah, I’ll be selling the powerbook. Fair market price… or maybe a bit lower if it’s going to a good home.
    Fearless Readers – shoot me an email if you’re interested in buying a 15″ Powerbook, 1.67Ghz, 1.5GB memory, 80GB hard disk, dual-layer Superdrive, all that good stuff.
