Snow Leopard

Yesterday I was at the Apple Store in Chelsea and I saw the Snow Leopard box on the shelf. _”It’s been long enough,”_ I thought to myself as I picked it up. Fast-forward a couple hours, and I’ve already gotten it running on my MacBook Pro. The installation was a piece of cake, and since I waited a while, most of the initial bugs have been smoothed out by 10.6.2. I reclaimed a sizable portion of my HDD and my computer’s been running a bit quicker. The dashboard is actually usable now, whereas before it would lag and take a while to load. Overall, I’m happy with the upgrade— it was thirty dollars well spent.

I’ve been needing one for a while, because it’s rather hard to get clients without a legit portfolio site. However, designing a website for yourself is infinitely harder than designing for a client- I’m never happy with my own designs, and throughout the course of this month I’ve gone through numerous designs. Now that I’ve settled on a design, I’ll need to code it up quickly, before I start hating it.

You can follow my progress on it here; I’ll try to update it often.

This is a problem for those of us who do not want to upgrade just yet, or worse, for those who *can’t* upgrade due to no PowerPC support in Snow Leopard. Fear not, there is a solution! If you can follow instructions and are moderately tech-savvy, you can enable this useful feature. Read on to find out how.
