Well, I don't know if you guys remember, but 2 days before AI went down I got a DVD icebook with 384MB RAM. I moved out of NYC to Rockland County and I'm now a High School Freshman.

Let's see, I went to Macworld, was at the front of the line with applenut, moved from Massachusetts to New Hampshire, and had my PowerBook G3 (Pismo) repaired again. I know there was other stuff, by I can't remember right now.

Let's see, umm, my girlfriend went off to college, I got a PC (I'm still a Mac user though ), I learned more of web development (and I'm damn good, might I add ), I went OS X, I got another girlfriend, and now I'm a junior; I also got interested in small business. Right now we're moving to renovate one of our other properties and then we're gonna start a B&B.

I went to MWNY as well, and talked to some Canadian Mac users, and got reshuffled in the great line move when the dummies let everyone go as a free for all through the MIDDLE doors. Sucks some guys in the front of the line (like applenut, but he got back to the front) got reshuffled to the back.

Oh well I still got good seats though.

I got a new job, going from WebObjects to Cocoa development.

And I got a TiBook.

However, in order to maintain cosmic balance. The gods had UPS DESTROY my PowerMac G4 and PowerTower Pro.

Never, ever, ship UPS ground. Ever. Not even pillows.

I forgot to mention that I finally got a Cable modem and I was at the Tice's Corner Apple Store (unfortunately, not the Grand Opening, but 3 days after it opened). And I'm also excited that an Apple Store is going to be coming to Palisades Center which is less than 10 min away from me!!

Thank god - neither did I! I have 2 HDs with a total of 3 partitions - 2 of them are all documents! That reminds me, I should probably back them up one of these days...

I was a month away from my 13th birthday when I first registered at AI. I had been lurking for a little while before that.

MichaelM,

I know one thing you didn't do: learn to spell.

Let's see: Did a great deal of application design work, wrestling with Forte, and trying desperately to keep us from becoming a C++ shop. Unfortunately, it looks like we will. At least that Godforsaken train wreck of a language will look good on my resume.

I got a girlfriend. W00t.

I started reading books in earnest again. I'm currently going through W. V. Quine's Philosophy of Logic and Wayne Koestenbaum's Cleavage (for the gf).

Helped get my band kicked up into a higher gear, and started practicing like a fiend again to meet to the demands of the songs.

Became the last unmarried person in my band. Turned 33. Ugh.

Junked my Cube for a real computer: A Dell Inspiron! Yeah, now this is the way it should be! Win2K is so much smoother than OS X!

Discovered <a href="http://www.keenspot.com" target="_blank">Keenspot</a> and <a href="http://www.keenspace.com" target="_blank">Keenspace</a>.

Beta tested Canvas 8.

I bought a DVD model iBook 500.
I made a fool out of myself (but that's nothing new ).
I can't remember anything else I did that's worth posting.

It's quite obvious which one is a complete lie.

The above could not possibly be true of Amorph.

Damn, it was that easy? I thought for sure the line about getting a GF would be something of a distraction.

Got a new 40 gig FireWire hard drive. Helped my dad do some framing for a rec room. Made my annual pilgrimage to see the Red Sox at Fenway. (They won that day.) Visited a friend in Kennebunk. (I'd never been there before. What a pretty place.) Went to NYC twice - the second time was to see the Mies van der Rohe exhibit that was at MOMA and the Whitney. It was on the sunday of Labor Day weekend and New York never looked so glorious to me as it did that day... And then there was what came next.

1) "Broke up" with Andrea

2) Supposingly to have 5 job opportunities but later all got f*cked up

3) The airline/travel company (Canada 3000) that I used to work for three years ago went bankrupted and my site was hosted using their server. I am forced to move to other server and pay for the service
