It occurred to me today how much I beat on OS X at least it sure seems like beating to me. I rarely think about what is open, what the computer might be doing between key strokes, whether another program is opening, closing, saving or whatever. I just do what I need to do and the Mac really never complains.
I work on the TiBook a lot still which is kind of weird because the Dual G5 with the 23-inch Cinama is sitting right here but I mostly use that computer for Final Cut Pro, Photoshop and various Audio apps and not as a communication platform.
?The main reason I use the TiBook is that it is my communications hub. I like to have all me info with me when I cruise out of the abode. If I were smarter maybe I could figure out a seamless way to use the G5 all the time because I sure do love that display and the TiBook screen resolution is pretty crowed prompting me to think about a new ‘book.
I also do all my web development on the TiBook mostly because I like to have it with me if I leave the house. My method of working on sites is to do work when I am in the right mood and I never know exactly when or where that will be!
?The TiBook is an 800mhz with 1 Gig of RAM and here is a list of typically open programs:
iView Media Pro
BBEdit?Net News Wire
Typically these are running all the time and rare is the problem! Works for me!
