Almost ready to ditch the dinosaur

Monday = killer day. Stupidly busy!

But …

My gorgeous iMac is *just about* ready for me to start using it exclusively … YAAAY, at last =)

All I have left to do is install PHP. And IIS (when the tech guy decides to drop off the disk I need). I’ve nearly finished copying over all my files to the new machine, which is IMO, the best damn piece of hardware I have ever worked on!

I ripped the 5 new CD’s I bought over the weekend on the iMac last night and what an absolute freaking pleasure! It seriously only took me about 30 minutes to copy all of them; as opposed to the more than half an hour it used to take me to rip just ONE CD on this old dinosaur. And Photoshop is a total BREEZE on my new baby too, I can work soooooo much faster … love it =)

I still need to transfer about 7Gigs of Outlook PST files … Urgh. (Yip, I keep EVERYTHING!) Oh yes, and I also need to setup all my email accounts – hmmm, that’s going to take a little time. I’m not even sure where I have all that info stored away. Let the hunt begin …

What else? iTunes – I’ll need to load up all my music. I’ve got about 60GB of tunes to import! That’s going to take forever, but it’ll be a good opportunity to sort through it all and clear out some of the crap that I don’t want anymore.

Really not sure when I can get around to organising all these bits and bobs – I’m terribly short staffed at the moment and even more snowed under than usual (!) Miss Boats is still off for this week, recovering from her op and one of my contract coders is out of action until further notice =( Hopefully I can have the iMac completely sorted by next Monday. I really can’t wait to get working on it.

Enjoy your evening everyone; I have to get back to the old grindstone … I sense a couple of late nights coming up!
