First day of spring

March 22, 2005

Officially, the first day of spring (and daylight savings time soon!)

At the green grocer today they had horseradish root. It isn’t always available but today there was plenty. Freshly grated on just about anything is delicious. There were also beets so a favourite dish of beets, sour cream and freshly grated horseradish will soon be devoured.

The speed and quietness of the new Mac mini that was received last week is very impressive. It is a 1.42 mhz with SuperDrive, 1 Gb RAM, Airport and Bluetooth.. One assumes that something that small will have it limits but it is a very responsive machine. And it seems to be absolutely quiet. Apple has really put together something very good here. If PC users are switching based on this machine they are in for a very nice surprise. The size and price is going to bode well for businesses also. Dedicated machines for specific purposes beyond a server have always been a headache. They take a lot of room. The minis solve this dilemna.

    The Mac Mini may be my next computer purchase, who knows… However, I just had to buy a new desktop for my webserver so that won’t be anytime soon.

    I have been enjoying my iPod Shuffle very much, though. Light as a feather, and no batteries!
