I'm writing this from my new MacBook Pro. Yes, I'm a consumer whore! :D

I've wanted a Mac for ages, and when I got my new job I decided to splash out. I've been waiting a couple of months for the new MacBook Pro to be released, but I'm glad I waited. It has Santa Rosa and an LED backlight, so that's sweet :P

I don't really have the hang of everything yet. Exposé is elite, and I love that you can scroll through pages using two fingers on the trackpad. Installing applications is weird; dragging an application icon to the "Applications" directory installs it, and dragging the application from the "Applications" folder to the trash can uninstalls it. I suppose it makes sense :P it's just odd!

Yesterday I installed TextMate, Ruby, Rails, Mongrel, SVN, Capistrano and MySQL following this tutorial on Hivelogic.com. Mik0s gave me an introduction to Ruby on Rails last night, and that was pretty fun. To be honest I don't really know why I installed SVN and I don't know what Capistrano does yet.

Ok, I'm going to figure out what Quicksilver does. CIAO FOR NIAO!
