|The beast with two Macs

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,
