Cool Mac Cruise

I found this in the last issue of MacWorld. It's the MacMania Alaskan cruise with guest speakers Steve Wozniack and John De Lancie (Q). Expierience breathtaking Alaskan landscapes in the day while learning UNIX,Photoshop and Project Builder in the night. Could a vacation get any better ?

Wow.. I don't know if I think that's really cool or shockingly sad... however, since John DeLancie did the intro movies for Compaq, I don't see where he fits in on the Mac Mania cruise. Also, $2,700 for an inside cabin on an Alaskan cruise seems to be.. well.. nutty is the nicest word that comes to mind.

This cruise is designed for people getting required job training, meaning that $2700 doesn't seem so bad when your company is paying for over half of it. And let's just accept that when someone endorses a product (like compaq) that doesn't mean they actually use it, it means they were payed to endorse it.

There's an ad in MacWorld (the magazine) about this cruise. It seems pretty nice. A whole ship full of Mac users. There are going to be sessions, and stuff like that.

I imagine that if Bill Gates had any torpedoes, then the Mac community would be screwed

Cool No way!

I do not know about you all, but if I go to cruise in Alaska I'll be thinking in getting laid, not in Photoshop.
Now, if that is a training program... to hell! I'll be thinking in anything else.

Is like having Sarah Michelle Gellar or Crhistina Applegate as a private Photoshop instructor.

I agree

as much as I love Apple....I don't think I'd even consider spending the money to go on type of cruise to Alaska...

would much prefer to spend that money on a plane ticket to Europe with my girlfriend!

I agree. I would only go if my job paid for it. If the company paid it would be fine with me.
Red Dwarf on DVD,any idea how many episodes per disc? I'm not even in Europe but I can't wait for the movie.

Actually. yeah. It could get better. Giselle and Laetitia Casta could be waiting for me back in my stateroom. Also a free G5 tower when I check in at the dock would make it better. I could go on, but you get the point.
