Rebirth of the nerd

So this year I think it’s time for me to get my nerd on, again. It’s been a long time since I’ve been driven to get the latest and greatest tech device, or learn something new in the field. This is going to be the year that I get back into the game. I’m going to freshen up my HTML skills, hone my PERL knowledge base, and finally upgrade to Snow Leopard. If all things go right I might even buy a new iMac, or Macbook by the end of the year. (here’s hoping anyway)

I’d really like to thank LG of iGriza for jump starting me on this. Through Melissa emailing her back and forth it really brought to light how far behind I am on my nerd status. I realized that I never use my Mac Mini anymore. So Mac Mini I apologize for neglecting you, you’ve always been there for me when I needed something Googled, when a PERL script needed to be tested, and when I needed something funny spoken in a computer voice. This year I will make all of that up to you. I’ve freed up your hard drive by buying you a 1 Terabyte friend, today you will be upgraded to Snow Leopard and the new iLife suite. Next I think I’ll move your iTunes library to your external friend so you can shed those few pounds everyone resolves to do this time of year. Then my good friend it will be, “PEANUTBUTTER JELLY TIME! PEANUT BUTTER WITH A BASEBALL BAT!” Maybe we can even get the guitar out and record some riffs with Garage Band. Mac Mini, I love you…
