Moving house!

Well, my home is currently slowly being packed up, ready for moving on Monday (11th December) to my new, bigger, place closer in to Cambridge.

Scary stuff 😉

This does mean that I’m going to be off-line from about now until as long as it takes to arrange ADSL at the new place… admittedly, that means that most readers will see this message after the fact – but at least the RSS feed will get it, and even Google might catch it in time(!)

(Yes, I really should mirror this site to a backup server… or even just relocate artoo, this machine, into my employer’s datacentre on a spare external IP address, if they’d let me)

Windows Media Player 11

I was playing with the Windows XP installation (via Bootcamp) on my Mac the other night, and Windows Update offered Windows Media Player 11 as an update.

Bootcamp & Parallels

I currently have three(!) copies of Windows on my Mac Book Pro 😀

 

I have Windows XP and Windows Vista (or is it now just “Vista”?… it’s the MSDN Home Premium edition, at any rate) running under Parallels, and Windows XP installed via Bootcamp.

 

The concept (which I may or may not stick with) is to have Windows/Bootcamp available for games, and Parallels for Office and other Windows-only apps.
