Morning Discussion

By Chris Faylor, Dec 23, 2008 6:59am PST After four days of sporadic connectivity, it looks like I've regained reliable internet access at home just in time. I'm not sure I could take another day working from Borders :(

First off, working in public is scary and distracting, as you never know who you're going to run into. Second, you can't look at all those cool and funny websites everyone's talking about, like What Would Tyler Durden Do. And third, the staff starts looking at you funny after your fifth straight hour of loading up nothing but video game websites.

On the plus side, I played a lot of Fallout 3 over the weekend, and I'm looking forward to sinking much more time into it across the coming weeks. I'm glad I waited until I had oodles of free time, as I don't think I'd be able to handle playing in bite-size sessions.

    Been a long while since I had a chance to post on Ye Olde Shacke...

    I just got myself a last-gen 15" MBP (which I absolutely love) from my friend for $1200 because he wanted to buy a new unibody MBP - mine has 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, and the 8600 256mb. I already installed Vista via Boot Camp and have that partition loaded up in VMWare Fusion. I've installed Adium, Office 2008 (got it for $20 through work), and Firefox under OSX and Witcher EE & Civ 4 on the Vista side.

    My questions are thus:
    1) What are the essential apps to get for OSX?

    2) What are some good games to run on a laptop, especially a MBP? I'd like stuff that I can use the trackpad only for, but if needs be I will be picking up a VX Revolution (or something along those lines) soon?
