sorry guys. don't know where all that came from. must be the excitement of coming back to the us this weekend. the idea of water i can drink from the tap and spicy food and not having to sleep under a mosquito net has gone RIGHT to my head.

...and here's where I ask on behalf of all our curious readers, where were you that you were drinking spicy food? ;) :D


This is a little scary since I've only played around on a mac before and the no right click thing has annoyed me to no end. However I think 1 month of two finger scrolling and the trick where you can view all your windows will help me get over that. What other cool features are there?

Sorry that I'm turning this into a mac thread  :-X

I use a 2 button Kensington optical scroll mouse with my mac, and I right-click all over the place.  I can do everthing with the right-click on my mac at home that I can do with the right-click on my PC at work.

btw, thanks for turning this into a mac thread.  I'm not a mac-preacher but I do think they need more exposure, especially in LS! ;D

I'm about to purchase my school's recommended Dell laptop, even though I have a great Powerbook (purchased just 7 months before the Mac Intel switch so Bootcamp is not an option).  My PB has all the Omni software plus all of MS Office, but since Denver explicitly says no Macs I decided to just go ahead and buy the Dell. 

It's not that I have the $$ to waste- far from it- but I have firsthand experience with other university IT departments flat out refusing to deal with Macs at all.  It usually went something like "You can't access the network?  Must be because you have a Mac.  Nevermind that the guy on the PC next to you can't get on either..."

I plan on using the Dell ONLY for school stuff- all the fun stuff I do with Adobe, FinalCut, Macromedia, will stay with the PB...not that I'll have time for the fun stuff ::)

I agree that you could certainly spin this to your advantage.  If I managed to turn a 3 year stint as a ski instructor into a good PS, a band gig can be really good, too.
By the way, I've also known a lot of people in the music industry.  Just like everywhere else, there are the lazy ones and the driven ones.  Make sure they know you're one of the driven.

samesongtwice- that must have been REALLY frustrating, especially coming from your grandmother. How did you respond?  Or did you...?

This might just be panic talk, but I'm considering buying the $400 LS parking permit even though I'm hoping I won't need to use it.  I'm hoping to be within walking/biking/public distance to school, but I'm wondering about those heavy book loads, weather, and bus schedules.  Currently, I never have to wait more than 10 minutes for any bus, streetcar, or subway.  I suspect I'm a little spoiled with my current easy public transportation.

I'm paranoid enough about the first year anyway, and don't want to put myself at any disadvantage by making it tough to get to campus.  $400 is a lot for parking, but in the grand scheme of things, it is a drop in the bucket...

wow- your school is really on the ball, or maybe mine just hasn't gotten their ball out yet...

I've been "looking" at places (via Google Earth) east of DU a few blocks north or south of Evans, but not farther east than Broadway.  Is there some sort of bus that runs on Broadway and Evans to DU?

  However, I cannot think of a single person who was satisfied with their Dell laptop.

Except me.  ;)

Hey cesco, are you thinking about buying the Dell D620 laptop recommended by DU?
I bought a really sweet Powerbook (not the Intel kind) about a year ago that is great for all my digital imaging stuff, but DU explictly says NO MACs. So I thought I'd just get another laptop exclusively for school. It seems like the Dell they recommend comes with a decent warranty...
