I love my ibook (g3), you should get one.

So I bought a second hand ibook g3 from link and I absolutely love it.

It isn't the fastest, my AMD64 laptop with 1.5GB mem is of course much faster, but it does seem to be a lot more consistent. It never seems to slow down. Of course when I push it's measly (and soon to be rectified) 380M mem to the limit I get the hour glass, but it doesn't actually slow down all that much.

And it is so pretty (if you think I am a big girls blouse then come and tell me ;) See if you still think so after discussing it :)). It does things that I didn't think were capable on 32MB laptop video cards.

After only a few days; I am hooked. I never quite got how an operating system can operate with only one mouse. No, really, I didn't. But it just works.

Some of the best bits of software I have found so far are quicksilver, menumeters and the absolutely best browser ever omniweb.

I have always raved about Firefox, and never thought I could get a better browser, but the way omniweb deals with tabs (it puts snapshots in the drawer) is brilliant. Get it now.

jdepend + eclipse; yeah :)

Writing about web page

So I have used jdepend before with good effect using maven, however I have never bothered integrating it with ant. I should :)

Anyways, just found this excellent plugin for eclipse. Very useful. If only I could remember what all the values mean :)
