Coolness Rating Increase

Word on the street is that Gammascalper's coolness rating has gone way up today.

Anyone know why?

Re: Coolness Rating Increase

That's why I'm asking! Word on the street says it's so, but I think it's probably stretching things a little.

Anyone heard what it's all about? Huh? Huh?

Re: Coolness Rating Increase

Wow -- you're quick to spill the beans.

I'm not so much cool as... enlightened.

This is my first one since the SE/20 back in college. Now that's a HUGE hint.

The SE is sometimes referred to as the SE/20, not an official designation. Introduced along with the Mac II in March 1987, the SE came with 1 MB of RAM, one or two double-sided 800K floppies, and space to mount an internal SCSI hard drive (the second drive bay held either a hard drive or second floppy - no room for both, although that didn't stop some people from creating a bracket to mount a hard drive in a two-floppy SE). The SE was the first compact Mac with a built-in fan.

There you go...the rest of the hint! Congrats gamma!!!

Re: Coolness Rating Increase

Thanks :-)

I picked up the lowest end Macbook which I can honestly say aleady is the best computer I've ever had -- and I've been an early adopter of Sony Vaio laptops for years.

This is an IDNer's dream machine.

We use Mac, Unix, Linux, MS here so I am a Unitarian, not a fundamentalist. They all have advantages. If that makes me a heretic, so be it.

Sorry, I was hoping for more big sale news. I am getting spoiled by all the sales posts and antsy for things to start happening. I even bought my first and only .in today!

Re: Coolness Rating Increase

To tell the truth if it wasn't for me only using a mac at the time of starting this site, IDNing wouldn't be at this level.

I had no clue window users couldn't use IDNs in IE..
RD told me afterwards....

I'll surely ask, I am getting tired of the BSOD's that my 'conventional' laptop is throwing at me (I'll drive over it when I have a replacement...then it's a flattop).

Thanks DavyB, and Bill, it has da droit!

Supposedly there's a problem with thermal paste not being applied liberally enough, but so far the Macbook runs much cooler than my Vaio (RIP).

I think these are problems that Apple users nitpick about.

And Bram, no BSOD, but I did get a CSWOD (Colorful Spinning Wheel of Death), which I could escape from.

I'll have a full report for the unconverted when I get the hang of this puppy.

-option-esc will get you the Force Quit window, and you can kill the process that has hung.
