    I was thinking, whilst sitting in traffic this morning, that I have owned more than my share of Macs since switching back from the PC world in May 2002. Nine fippin' Macs. The excellent resale value of Apples has allowed me to swtich computers a ridiculous rate. I need an intervention or something. Somehow, my wife has not left me.

    I think I have had 7. (You can't expect me to count accurately to such high numbers.) It might be 8.

    Centris 610, summer 1993
    iMac rev. B, spring 1999
    iBook 500, summer 2001
    eMac, 1Ghz, fall 2003

    I'm hoping that by the time I buy my next computer I'll be back into a cycle of my life where I have a good job (right now I'm in grad school . . . again). Then maybe I can get a non bottom-of-the-line mac for the first time since 1993.

    You're far enough away that you may remove your shoes, if that will help. :D

    1997: 2nd hand Quadra 700
    2000: 2nd hand Powemac 7300/180
    2003: New 1 GhZ eMac

    I still have my old ones because by the time I got a new[er] one, the old one would be worth about NZ$10, and there'd be no point selling it. :(
