The beast with two Macs [Mar. 3rd, 2008|10:14 pm]

Migration Assistant: maybe the best thing about Mac OS.

I'm going to call the new one ledeuxmachina, I think. Because dual-core. Because lagniappe was its predecessor and I want to continue the French thing. And because it's only for four and a half months, which is precisely the length of time I can deal with being the sort of person whose computer is named after a Smashing Pumpkins song.

...which, of course, makes me think of naming a computer "Deux Ex Machina."

...I am so lame.

That's a legit computer name.

I mean, my MacBook Pro, Buzz, is named for a Pat McCurdy song lyric. It's also ironic, because buzz is usually what you're trying to avoid when working with audio! Har!

Also, this picture is a good visual comparison of the MagSafe vs. the old classic power adapter.

Yeah! Next time someone asks me about the power adapter thing (you hush; it's happened), I will totally have a photo to refer them to!

I'll have an XO laptop to name soon. What should I call it?

I think that if I had one, I'd probably keep it in the kitchen and use it for Google-cooking and storing recipes and the like, so a culinary name would be likely.

Mine's maiden voyage will be to Japan, probably. Maybe I'll give it a nice Japanese name.

Nifty name (also nifty post title :)). A. likes to name all of his machines after mythological monsters - I've only named one machine but called it Sphinx, just to keep with the general theme,
