Well, Future Weather effects the ability of many to see Future Hardware tomorrow.

But you're right. I still predict that the speed of the new Macs will be the number of posts in this thread when the keynote starts.

Someone asked me to relay this message as a post on AI:

[quote]I can't get registration for appleinsider working right.. but can you post
something about amd's dip in ppc like 2 years ago, when they planned to make

Someone declared it "Post of the year" and I have to agree.

Untill this insanely large thread gets a super-witty response like that, it won't come close, in my eyes, to being truly great.

20 hours to go. And we're talking about snow. If I were still in school, i'd have to ditch. I was a good kid, but this isn't something i could miss.

I'm so thankful that I work at a small ad agency where my boss is a huge mac fan too...

We just shut the shop down for days like tomorrow.

Open the bar and gather around the LCD.

Anyone wondering where the Moto Mole that reported to MOSR and TheRegister is? Either he was full of it, or he's scared he might get caught and lose his job.

Wish he'd email one last message tonight on the fabbing progress of the G5

I'll just be happy with the blizzard of gadgets Steve throws at us. Or else I'm jumping over to the <a href="http://forums.appleinsider.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=000661" target="_blank">Boo Steve and the Segway He Rode On thread.</a> One or the other.</strong><hr></blockquote>

We had around 10-12 inches of snow around New Year's (not in one day) and that was nothing to get worried about.

It's not that we're used to that much snow here in Denmark - we have perhaps about 3 weeks with snow in total during a winter season, and the snow we got between December 20 and December 31 is now gone.

And now over to sports

Seems a lot of 'insiders' have gone by the way-side... DorsalM and Codename haven't posted in quite a while (for net time at any rate) Kormac is still posting away but that's about it... Maybe the letter from Steve (as per Think Secret) scared em... But then again Dorsal claims to not work for Apple in the first place... Dunno...

Buffalo, NY got over 7 feet of snow (that's about 2.1 meters for the the metrically blessed) in a period of 3 days. :eek: If anyone is watching the weather channel -- you're sick. No, if you're looking at the precipitation map for the northeast US, see that light green rainy area next to gray light snow area? I'm about 3-5 pixels into light green. I can't help but think of Catch 22 when everyone as staring at that map with the battle line drawn on it. They had to make a bombing run to move the line. So Yossarian discreetly moved the line in the middle of the night, and they didn't have to make the bombing run -- they moved the line after all. That's where I am right now.

Unfortunately, I have a big deadline this Friday, so come hell, high water or blizzard, I have to be at work. What's even worse is that the deadline will distract me from my rumor-mongering duties. Uh, I mean, the Apple rumors will distract me from my big deadline -- yeah, that's it.

I have to get up early so I look good for the bosses. Oh, great, now I am worrying about work. What's worse is that they just upgraded all machines to Win2k (just in time for 2002) and the three top-end machines that used to run NT are not accepting change gracefully. I'm working on one of them. People joke about blue screens and how now Apple has bluescreens on OS X, but this is bad. Every log-in, no matter the user and it goes *boom* almost instantly.

Ok, I've done my part...

post #1228 of 1762
Yah Fran, how's it feel to be the poppa of a 1200+ post thread?

And hey, I remember the "Codename is Nick DePlume" thing. There was a photo that had -somebody's- iDisk pulled up onscreen, right? On a photo posted at Think Secret?

There was a reason given for plausible deniability for that, but I lost interest quickly on the whole deal. Can't remember why it was important.

Anyhow, I need to put down my iBook and pick up the phone to track down somebody who could record the keynote for me now.

My plan is to avoid the radio and the 'net until somebody can hand me the tape of the keynote so that I can see it unfold for myself.

Wish me luck!

I said:
"Dual machines came MWNY 00, not 99. Then (which refers to MWNY 99, sorry for the confusion) came the iBook and Airport.

And check out this: fake, for sure, but looks quite photo-like. Perhaps edited with iPhoto?

Thats about it.. Only those two comments from Apple,- the rest is the writers opinion.
post #1240 of 1762
Lets try something new: What are Apple doing of "extras" around the world? What have Apple France, Apple Sweden, Apple Germany aso done extra for this show that they haven´t done before or which remarks have the local Apple representatives said or done that is special?

We just read the statement from Apple Norway. Apple Denmark has invited the general public to see the keynote at two locations (for the first time ever? Heklp me here JLL). Normally its only press, resellers aso.
