The last experiment with getting a Mac worked out just fine. And then 2 weeks ago the company I work at found out that we needed a Mac, so the supporters was able to actually look at a Mac and be able to assist our customers running OS X with their needs. So I got an oppotunity to sell my “old” Mac mini G4.
So fast forward to yesterday: My new Mac arrived. 220MB downloads later (Turns out OS X 10.4.6 was released same day) I was up and running. A quick restore of my files from my external Iomega firewire drive to /Users and creation of a new user with my usual username (OS X asked if I wanted to “reattach” the files I had just restored – Which is basicaly a chmod to get the permissons right), and I was back where I left off. Things going a lot faster though.
Today Apple released a press announcement about Boot Camp. A bit of a surprise, as it was not excatly something I saw coming, considering Steve’s latest interviews and tradeshow talks.
But here it is, and it is working just fine too. A few screenshots from windows:
Taks manager showing off the Core Duo processors:
Selection of startup disk – Not unlike the OS X program for the same job:
How windows see the devices on the mini:
Only a few devices does not show up as working. Apple says it is the remote control – And I frankly do not have any idea what that should be doing in windows, with the apparent lack of Frontrow.
Apple say that Boot Camp is going final along with OS X 10.5 (Aka Leopard).
What I would really like to know though: Is it ok to ignore the parts in the manual specifying what to install, and install something more interesting than Windows XP Pro SP2?
It seems that some crafty people have managed to do the tricks and boot multiple OSs

At “Onsdagsmam”, my aunt offered my a copy of some an picture she found and had made replicas of. For your viewing pleasure I have scanned it.
Featuring (From left to right): Me, my grandmother holding my sister Charlotte and my cusin Karen Marie. The picture is taken in front of my grandmothers summer house, now owned by Charlotte. My guess would be that it is taken sometime durring the summer of 1977 or 1978.
Well… Not quiet yet actualy, but I went to one of the [many] local bicycle store to look for one today.
What I ended up with was this baby, which I am going to pick up tomorrow.
The manufacturer MBK has all the specs. I’m getting it fitted with tire and chain fenders and a lock to boot.
It’s going to be interesting to be riding something with considerably less than 95HPs, but as winter seems to be unwilling to go away this will have to do until there are 5+ centigrades…
After half a weekend at LinuxForum 2006 I retuned with a Soekris Engineering net4801 witch I got from Wim Vandeputte, who runs KD85.com.
Now the challange was: How to install something on it. The solution was at Ultradesic site. They got a very through HOWTO on how to install most *BSDs (FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD and miniBSD) and some Linux distros on this SBC.
Worth checking out if you either have a Soekris 4801 or are considering to get one.
Politiken writes that our Minister of Taxes is linking from his personal homepage to Liberator which currently has an article presenting the Freeplay campain.
Freeplay is an anwser to the ministers own campain Fair Play, trying to convince people to drop “sort arbejde cialisviagras.com.
He is also in for a bit more trouble later today… Can’t wait to see the result :)
Just arrived home from a concert with I Am Bones we have arrived at the conclusion: They rock!The I Am Bones concert was followed up by LARSEN AND FURIOUS JANE – And they suck, except for one (1) riff and their go-go girl. Get a head shave and a bigger guitar dudes!The goood thing about Johannes’n’friends live must also be the extended use of rock’n’roll guitars – There’s a lot more of it live than on the album (Although the album is still highly recommendable).

I’m talking about the new Mozilla Firefox 1.5 which hit the streets yesterday. And the fact they moved the distribution of Firefox and Thunderbird to mozilla.com instead of the .org site where we – by now – are used to get the best browser currently available.
Go get it while it’s fresh:
Then, if you are on a Mac, go check out the theme at http://aronnax.spymac.com/. The Firefox 1.5 release is more Mac friendly – This also makes it look Mac like.
I do not seem to be the only one enjoying the purchase of a Mac and the features of OS X. Giles Turnbull wrote this piece on O’Reilly Net:
