Well, after the success with Free iPods, I went for a free Mac Mini, because as we all know, I’m obsessed with Apple products. So I guess I’m on my way to mini-ownership. And I’m a proud parent-to-be. Time to find some desk space, a LCD display, and perhaps a KVM switch… once I figure out how/where to setup.
Some things upcoming this week:
Operations Management Quiz (hopefully not to hard)
Find/Order USB 2 PCMCIA card for Laptop (any recommendations)
Order iSkin for iPod
Hopefully Free Mac Mini’s will have #10 and be processing (likely done, just hasn’t and registered).
If above goes to processing, time to start researching a nice LCD display (likely 17″ or 19″), as well as KVM Switch
- Finish sifting through some of the useless code in project aquarius, and finish up redoing the templating architecture (big speed improvement). Get a few more core parts hooked up… and that would wrap up milestone 0.1. [long term]
Finish reading Candide for World Lit
Figure out what’s left on the new reporter tool, and figure out a timeline for wrapping it up for 1.0
Watch a little TV
Get a little Sleep
[Suprise Addition] Operations Management Homework from hell
There’s more than that, but those are the ones that come to mind.
Oh yea, this page is now XHTML Strict. And will hopefully be that way 99% of the time.
I mentioned it the other day. Now it looks like someone made a business plan out of it. Pretty cool idea. You could fit a few clients into 2U space. And cost effective.
Perhaps VPS (Virtual Private Servers) are a waste of time. Maybe this approach is better. This way, less clients are effected per hardware outage. This minimizes liability.
I’m 6/10 on getting a Free Mac Mini. I need 4 other people to make my goal of a free Mac Mini come true. So if you want to help your faithful blogger out, signup and complete an offer. most are painless. Read through them and find one that works for you.
No, I don’t currently plan to host on mini’s. But I do hope to have a mini to play with. My Macs are aging, so having a more powerful one for things like building Firefox, Thunderbird. And general development purposes would be really sweet.
So if you can, help Robert out! 4 More!
Gratis Internet (the folks who brought the Free iPod deal), appear to be running a Free Mini Mac deal.
They did deliver on the iPod, so I now know the company is legitimate. So any help is appreciated.
