Great IT Plans …

Over the past few days, I have the sudden urge of getting my IT stuffs done. My MacBook Air’s copy of virtual Windows 7 isn’t working properly since a few months ago and my Samsung NC10 netbook’s operating system is corrupted like almost a year ago. By my usual standard, I would have fixed them long time ago. Instead, I seem to have put all things on halt. I am not sure why but busy isn’t the word I am looking for. Must be games. My weakness for gaming sometimes really put me behind of schedule. However, it’s undeniable that gaming relaxes my mind and I really need that.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview

Anyway, I have a few plans going on. First, I have downloaded Windows 8 consumer preview, ready to replace my MacBook Air’s copy of virtual Windows 7. It expires next January and should give me plenty of time to play with it. I will just reinstall Windows 7 when it expires as it’s virtual anyway. Then I shall fix my Samsung NC10 netbook. I plan to install iTunes on it and turn on the sharing function. Hence, it will be like a little server where I can just stream music from it rather than storing music files on my MacBook Air which has got limited space. If I had the space, I might turn it into a little netbook mini hifi as I have a spare set of 2.1 speakers.

I have also longed to replace my current desktop PC with Mac mini. Well, it’s not exactly my desktop, it’s more like Mee’s desktop. It’s not the time yet but sooner or later, I hope to turn the desktop PC into a media server.

To be honest, I am getting quite excited when I speak about it. I will be installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview tonight and from there, I hope that I can continue with what I have planned. Fingers crossed and I should be allocating some time for my gaming session!

Mac OS X Lion …

Mac OS X Lion

It’s been a while and I am still thinking whether or not to purchase and install Mac OS X Lion. It’s a tough decision for me because I am not a heavy user and I wonder if those 250 functions really useful to me. On the other hand, the price at £20.99 is great and the Launchpad and full screen window are very attractive. For me, I like new stuffs but not before it has been tested and proved to be having no major problems. Conflicting enough, there are Mac users who love Lion and there are others who hate Lion. Well, love and hate are quite distinct and there seem to be not many stand in between when it comes to Lion.

I do hope when I finally decide to install it, I will love it.

Currently, I don’t have many programs installed. However, I still worry about the compatibility of the programs with Mac OS X Lion. Maybe I am the type of person who worries too much. I tried not to think too much but sometimes, I just can’t help it.

I am not sure why and when; I have lost the interest in customising things like my mobile phone, desktop wallpaper, desktop colours and fiddling with the settings. The idea of hacking and cracking is still very much alive in me but after the initial stage, I don’t follow up much later on. After using Macbook Air and iPad2, I am even more sure that I have lost that interest. I like simplicity now. Even though I jailbreak my iPad2, I didn’t follow any of the after jailbreak guides. By the way, I have just realised that there is a new Cyanogenmod release and I shall have to arrange some of my time to install it on my HTC Desire. It’s been like 3-4 months since their last release and I certainly hope that this latest release will fix some of the problems that I have with my HTC Desire running on the older Cyanogenmod version.
