Ordered My First New Computer in Almost 7 Years

by on

Finally committing to a new machine for the first time in many years. I really don't need this, but it'll be a whole heck of a lot of fun to have. Highlights include:

  • 27" 2560x1440 LED IPS Display
  • 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz)
  • GeForce GTX 680MX
  • 16Gb RAM
  • 1TB Fusion Drive (128SSD + 1TB HDD)

Sure the thing won't ship until January, but it'll be sweet when it does... Delicious, perhaps.

Steve Jobs 1955 - 2011

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

Steve Jobs made tools for these kinds of people.

While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Avatar Switch!

New Avatar - TYCHO

I've decided, after much deliberation, to switch out my avatar and signature. As you are all aware, the Pope has been my featured avatar for some time now. Yes, it's very neat meeting Benedict in Rome.

However, it was also quite misleading. I'm not Catholic, nor do I feel any sort of special connection to the 'il papa' at all. It just so happened fortune was in my corner, and of the thousands people Benedict could have paid a special visit to that day, he happened to come right over to yours truly.

Besides, this way I have more freedom with my various representative imagery. Change is good. :)
