Some mac stuff...

I've started installing Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) on our computers. So far I'm very impressed. Everything runs faster and smoother. Until now there was a noticeable speed-hit in OS X that I felt was just the price I had to pay for the sophisticated graphics. Wrong! The graphics are even better in 10.3, yet they move with palpably greater speed and authority...

I notice that local blogger Brian Tieman has a book coming out, Panther in a Snap. Alas, not until December.

It's going to take a while to get organized to take advantage of all the new features. I'll probably want to get a .mac account, because you can now put items in a .mac folder and they will sync automatically in the background. Off-site backups painlessly! Now what would happen if I put an alias of my Quicken accounts in that folder? Will it do a back-up every time I enter something in my check register? Hmmm.... Wish I had that book right now. But it's fun to just figure it out myself.
