Is it Friday already?

One thing I've found out -- Fridays don't really feel like Fridays when you don't have a job.

I've been mostly channel surfing today, mixed in with occasional bursts of photo editing. The Godfather was on, which explains why I have a pot of linguini on the stove right now, as I'm easily suggestible.

Yesterday was a mini-reunion for our group at Sweetwater, which was okay. Afterwards, I went to Carpool for a bit, then stopped off at the Barnes and Noble for a bit before popping over to Clyde's for a bit. Nothing particularly notable.

Afterwards, though, I couldn't get to sleep. So I just flopped on the couch for a while. Oddly enough, I did wake up at an hour approaching normal.

Oh, and as it turns out, I got slightly screwed because I bought the new Macbook right before their latest speed bump, and I'm just out of the 14-day return period. But I'm not going to worry about it too much.

Hmm... That speed bump doesn't really seem all that substantial aside from the new chipset which I don't think you'd really notice a heck of lot anyway, would you?

Dan -- hey, better performance is better performance. But the graphics card is supposed to be substantially better -- not that I'm going to be doing much gaming or video editing on this. But still.

Hi Joe- I'm a newbie. What's a "speed bump?"

Beth (Theresa's friend!)

Beth -- for Macs, a speed bump is a slight improvement in the performance specs, usually at the same price point. A bump up in speed. Speed bump. Even though it's the opposite of what you might expect.

Ah. Got it. Thanks! I'm considering upgrading to a MacBook, maybe around the holidays. Keep us posted on what you think of yours!
