8:50 AM: I woke up an hour ago with the feeling that it was Christmas morning. Since then I’ve been trying to get my work laptop up and running so I can actually try to do some work from home. Unfortunately the power adapter I grabbed was the wrong one and the VPN client fails to connect. I guess I’ll just be watching the webmail today.
9:05 AM: I’m sitting on a conference call that needs to be cancelled. Mac is either in Seattle or Auburn on the truck. Godspeed, good Mac!
9:20 AM: Got VPN working, so I can now work at home! . . .as long as I have battery power.
11:05 AM: My work laptop is down to 1 hour of juice. No Mac yet. 😦
11:25 AM: Okay saving the last of my juice for later in the afternoon. At least I’ve been more productive than some people.
11:50 AM: IT’S HERE!!!
1:25 PM: I’m well on the way to getting it fully armed and operational. I have a lot of data to transfer over from my old computer, but things are going well so far. I forgot that the Mac Pro only takes SATA3 drives. It took me a while to figure out why my IDE drives weren’t snapping into place. Doh!
2:50 PM: I think I’m pretty much 90% moved into my new Mac Pro. I have all my important data transferred over. I have all of my normal apps up and running how I had them before. So far things have been absolutely painless. Using target disk mode, I grabbed all my data off my old hard drives. That made things very speedy (25 GB of music < 20 min). This machine is a beast. I'll post pics in just a bit.
