How I beat on OS X

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:

Firefox
Safari
Entourage
Ecto
Photoshop
GoLive
Word
Omni Outliner
iView Media Pro
iTunes
Interarchy
BBEdit?Net News Wire
SambucusX
Text Edit
Spam Seive
Acrobat

Typically these are running all the time and rare is the problem! Works for me!

One thought on “How I beat on OS X

  1. Greg: I feel the same way – I probably have 4000 hours on my TiBook with 1 Gig and it is just bulletproof.
