I'm posting this entry with my new 1.2Ghz G4 iBook. I have this new computer because my old one crapped out on me (likely a hard disk failure). My old iBook had three significant problems: bad battery, bad logic board and bad hard disk. Thankfully, Scott from Apple Canada sent me a replacement computer.
During the diagnosis/replacement time period, I was without a functioning laptop. Regrettably, this period lasted from 19 October till 16 November (btw, if you sent an e-mail to me during that time, I probably just received it today). Not having a laptop was a big change (for the worse!). I'm glad to have this one. It's faster and cooler than my old computer.
Amazingly, when I launched Mail.app and downloaded my mail, I had 7949 new messages. Holy shit! 6,500 of these were MT comment spam notification e-mails (thank goodness for MT-Blacklist!). A few hundred were uncaught spam e-mail. Another few hundred or so were list e-mails. Two hundred or so were legitimate e-mails.
Anyway, I'm back in action now. No more using Windows computers! And thanks, Apple, for doing the right thing. Seriously.Posted by Jesse at November 16, 2004 11:35 PM
