I've made the switch! (Sort of...)

I wandered into Myer yesterday to look at computers. Specifically, to look at the Mac's. Their Apple expert wasn't working yesterday, so they said to come back the next day, so I did.

After having a bit of a chat with him to find out they can do custom machines, I put in an order for one. I am now the proud owner of a 1.42GHz Mac Mini, with 1Gb of RAM, 100Gb Hard Drive, SuperDrive and built in Wireless and BlueTooth. Plus I got a Wireless keyboard and mouse, a DVI to video adaptor and the extended warranty. Since it's a custom machine I don't actually have any of those things except the extended warranty, but I do actually own them. :) Feels kind of odd to walk out of the shop with the extended warranty but not with any of the things covered by the extended warranty.

The plan is to have it sitting in the living room with all my media (music and video) sitting on it so I can actually watch/listen to it all in a room other than the computer room.

Of course, I could have just ordered it all online at the Apple Store, but by buying it through Myer I got it on 12 months interest free, so I can pay it off over the next 12 months.

I'm still going to be a PC geek in all my other computers (since that's what I get paid for), but my geekiness is expanding.

Bet you can't eat just one!

Would that make it a Big Mac?

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
