There has been a dearth of posting on the site lately. For that, I apologize. At the beginning of this year, I started a contract with a local software development company. I have been making extensive use of the knowledge I gained in the past year of investigating the Mac, and now I'm contributing to a well-known OS X application. I'm working with a great team of people, and I expect I'll be doing more with them in the future.

The one thing that blows me away is the difference between the PowerPC Macs and the Intel boxes. I've got a G5 PowerMac and a Mac Pro on my desk. And the difference in compilation speed is incredible. I almost want to rush out and replace my PowerPC based machines right now. I'm going to hold off until I see what machines ship with Leopard, however. I'm expecting a bump in the specs of the laptops by then, at which point I assume a new MacBook Pro will blow my current PowerMac desktop out of the water.
