Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

I thought my old portable Mac was getting a bit old, given that no longer is supported by Apple and is stuck at version 10.6 of Mac OS X and despite Windows 8 installing fine on it the plastic case was getting so damaged that it was time to get a new laptop. While I did buy a tablet last year, and have a couple of desktop computers, I sometimes want a laptop as well and in that segment I think Apple’s computers are the best.

I have thought about it for a while, but finally bought it today. I ended up with a thirteen inch MacBook Pro with Retina screen (or Reasonable resolution as Linus Torvalds calls it) and 256 gigabyte SSD. I am not quite impressed over the idea of having the casing in metal, nor that they have removed the dvd player, but except for that it seems quite nice. For the time being I am transferring data from the old computer to the new one, it says it is going to take 48 hours. I hope it is overestimating, if not I will have to find a better way to handle the transition.

Never underestimate the bandwidth, osv. Snabbaste sättet att flytta filerna blev att koppla på säkerhetskopiedisken och låta den nya datorn läsa filerna därifrån...

När jag nyligen migrerade mitt system från en gammal till en ny Mac Mini, kopplade jag ihop dem med en gammal hederlig Ethernetkabel. Upp emot 500 GB på några timmar, om jag minns rätt. Trådlöst hade det tagit en halv evighet.
