MacBook has arrived

Posted in Mac at 2:42 pm by Stephanie Bryant

The new MacBook Pro arrived this morning. I immediately tried to restore everything I used to have on Trinity…. and failed. Badly. Tip: Don’t restore from a backup from a corrupted system. I’m now doing a complete wipe/restore, and will be a little more judicious in adding back all my stuff.

In unrelated news, the new laptop’s name is Mariposa, because it’s a pretty name, and means “Butterfly” in Spanish. A butterfly flits around and is very mobile– just as Mariposa will need to be. Also, a butterfly has two symmetrical sides, and Mariposa will need to be very dual-purpose, running both Windows and Mac programs. Finally, there is a bit of a nod to the MSN butterfly, though not much of one. ;)
