With a week off (10 days, actually) from my new and awesome job, I brought home my PC laptop from work, just in case I need to work on something Web-related for work. I use a PC laptop there for the Web software and a Mac desktop. I think, I hope, I’ll be getting a Powerbook to replace the iMac, but I’m not sure quite yet.
Anyway, the IT guy there let me also take home an old clamshell iBook, similar to my old one that I’ve been trying to fix. So I realized a minute ago, while I was sitting in my livingroom floor in the midst of my electronic household, that I have 7 computers in the house, and six of them are mine. Well, four are mine personally, two are from my work and one is Ian’s long-forgotten PC desktop.
I keep putting off trying to sell my old iMac Graphite DVSE, but just can’t seem to do it. And I think I have come to the realization that I don’t want to part with it – and that’s okay.
My dream is one day to have an Apple in every room in the house. Obviously I’ll need a bigger house to pull this off with style :), and that’s ok… more time to acquire more Apple computers. I would like to get my hands on an old unit, though that might be expensive to do.
I would like to have a special area set up in each room where I can have said computer docked and wireless… so that it can function as a music-sharing jukebox, connect to the Internet, etc. A full-on multimedia house… that would be so freaking awesome.
Although, looking around my livingroom I probably could set up the iMac DV down here, but I’d have to really get it wireless and get some sort of pimped out table for it. But I don’t think my multimedia house could reach full potential in this house right now. I love my condo, don’t get me wrong, but one day I hope to have a little more room for my “toys.”
So… for the time being, at least during my week off work, I am going to focus on fixing my clamshell, and maybe try to learn more customization tricks in OS9 or something.
