Just got back from Waiheke Island for the small-scale launch of ICONZ’s new (and rather excellent) wireless product. It’s a Joint Venture with Emagen Tech, and Emagen includes the mad skillz of my mate Moz, so that’s all good. I think it’ll sell like hotcakes, and I don’t even know what hotcakes _are_.
Anyway, the 45min ferry trip over there (and back) is actually rather nice, at night, with Bill Hicks on my ipod and no-one else on the boat. Very cool.
Speaking of ipods, I am going to DARE to upgrade to itunes 4.5 and a corresponding firmware update on my pod, even though there are reports of dodgy upgrades, crashed pods, etc on the model I have. Say it’s not so, Apple! Say it’s not so!
I think I might actually try to purchase an apple desktop computer one of these days, one that can run MacOS-X. Ideally, one of them cute imac thingies with the flat screen and the round base. Apple’s design philosophies are quite compelling.
What else is new – I bought 900G of disk for one of my servers, 3x300G. That’ll keep it going for _months_ and let me cycle some dodgy spindles out of production. I’ll pull it down tomorrow and get ’em installed. I’ve been warning the userbase for days now, so they should be cool about it.
Neil Gaiman posted in his blog that he’s doing a “secret project” with Penn Jillette. [Insert squeaky fanboy squeal here]. I’ve been avidly watching the new episodes of “Bullshit” as they come out. What a fantastic show.
