All Good Things

Well, I found out I have a full time contract position for almost twice as much money as I'm making now, not part time like I'd thought in my last post about buying a house.

Good news: I have a new awesome job doing Ruby stuff all day!

Bad news: I am abandoning everyone at Roswell :(

The American Dream

I want to buy a house so freaking bad.

I just found out I am going from 20 hours a week to 30 hours a week for one of my contracts, which is an extra huge chunk of money every month, and so home ownership this year is looking like a great possibility. It also seems like I'll be staying in Buffalo for a few years at least, if James can get a job around here too.

I can't wait to move back closer to or into Allentown. Seriously sick of the Elmwood Village - I miss the grime and dirt!

Had to stay home to sign for this today.

Now I can have the following windows open and visible all at the same time:

3 terminal windows
- One for autotest
- One for server log
- One for actual CLI work
Firefox
Text Edit
Mail
Chat
Twitter
ITunes

I'm a happy camper.

Totally Worth It

OK, so I've had this new laptop for a week (upgraded from a MacBook to a MacBook Pro). At first I was really nervous that I just wanted to upgrade because I wanted the latest and greatest, but didn't really *need* the latest and greatest. It turns out that it was totally worth it.

  • 4gb of RAM. I can run all the programs that I need at the same time instead of starting them up and shutting down throughout the day. In the case of making web graphics, this is a huge time savings. Text editor, App Server instances, Photoshop, Fireworks, Lightroom, MS Office, News reader, FTP client, Safari, Firefox, SQL client, iTunes, iChat OmniFocus, Mail, and half a dozen other programs all open all day long. And - I can leave one or two Windows VM instances running in the background all the time. Again, huge time savings in testing web apps.

  • Rock solid. This laptop just doesn't seem to hesitate. It is always ready to go when I need it. No hardware trouble, sleeps and wakes up fast.

  • Bigger screen. Awesome, more room to work.

  • Metal enclosure. Feels more rugged.

  • Firewire 800. Super fast external storage.

  • Dual DVI out for a large external monitor.

This is my most favorite computer of all computers that I've ever owned in the last 20 years.
