You will not believe this

Guess who owns one now?

Ok, I got an e-mail from Hubris Sonic. I think many of you will find this amusing. Jen is next you know.

Mac?, simple, with parallels. i can run linux/apache, win2000, and not have all the freaking dumb ass messages, plus i have been having a fuck of a time getting system email messages to go out. the firewall software keeps blocking everything...

a good friend had one and showed me parallels and was running apache on his box. that did it for me. i know useful when i see it. besides all my servers are either moving to linux or are aleady there. microsoft priced themselves out of the market i think...

plus... you got one. i figured had to be something to it. so i was in a receptive mood when my friend showed me his box.

i dont keep an open mind all the time, but there are windows, short, but... ;)
