Debian install a no go?
I was trying to install Debian with a newer version, but that was no success at all.
This weekend I was at my parents’, so no playing around with my Mac. Sunday me and my cousins went to Six Flags Holland. I really liked the Goliath which was so… different from what I had experienced before (and that is not much to be honest). It was my first non-Vekoma coaster and what a difference indeed!
So, I’m having some problems with my machine, of which I’m not sure it is because of the machine or from external factors.
After playing around with OS X I must say, I’m impressed. It is something you need to get used to, because it just works a little bit different. For instance, I keep forgetting there is a menubar of the running program all at the top of the screen. Over to the design of the machine itself. The materials used are of very high quality. It is put together very well, everything fits exactly. I only have one single point of critic, the screws of the PCI slots are a bit hard to (un)screw; the frame is in the way.
First OS X post
Well, here I am. Sitting at OS X on a very small screen (14”) and an even tinier resolution (832 x 624). I really need a bigger screen, this is not workable. But I have to for the time.
Yes! What no one ever expected (ahum) has happened. Today, extremely early (8:02), a mailman of TNT came to my parents house with a big box and a bag… Looks like I have to go home now, but I have to work a couple of hours first; my last workday, on Monday university is starting again.
Not so bad news after all
Well, I got an E-mail from Apple soothing me that everything still is ok, but that Venray is actually an Apple depot where they reorder all shippings for further shipment. Strangely enough, I get to see this and even worse, I don’t get any confirmation about what is happening. Others might freak out.
Hmm, the TNT Consignment Tracker gives me some second thoughts... Although both the tracking number of the and the web order number match mine, the order was going to Venray... And is now even delivered at someone named 'V Leuken'!<p>I doubt that it is correct… Let’s hear what Apple has to say about that.</p>
Shipment is just 500 meters away!
At 23:18, the package checked in at the mail warehouse in Eindhoven, just about 500 meters away from my dorm room. Tomorrow, it will go to Breda and then in the evening back to Eindhoven by car…
Shipment entered the Netherlands
Today, 8:22, my machine was checked into a TNT Hub in Arnhem. Looks like it going my way in one or two days.
Tracking your shipment
A friend came with a site where I could get more information about my package than I get from Apple’s own tracking site. I can see there that it is already in Europe. Cork, Ireland to be exact. It might be handy for you too if you are ordering.
The big wait has an end
So my new Mac was due to ship on 20. August, two months after I placed the order like I wrote in the introduction. According to the tracking page, it has been picked up by TNT Express on 20. August. The big wait is finally coming to an end. IBM had some problems delivering enough G5 processors to Apple, so Apple had problems delivering Power Macs to its customers.
