    My new Power Mac was "born" last night in manufacturing and has been sent for shipment. :D

    Nice name . ;)

    I'd just like to point out that mad jew lives all the way over in Australia, while I am right up I-95 just north of White Marsh. Y'know, in case you need someone to look after your baby. She'll have a few friends to play with here, too. :rolleyes:

    More than happy to babysit her iGary. :D

    What's the first thing you're going to do with her? Introduce her to some of the nice young men on MacRumors?

    LOL

    Unfortunately, I may be traveling when she arrives. :mad:

    I have a trip to West Palm this weekend with no return date scheduled. Blah.

    I get my Cinema displays today, so at least I can get my old ACD packed up and ready for her new buyer, whoever that is, and try out the new one.

    Hoping the computer ships today or tomorrow - due to come overnight, so if it get's here Friday I can play setup all Friday night. :D

    RAM is on the way, but MacMall in all their genious didn't ship my PCI FW and USB 2.0 cards second day like my confirmation says. :mad:

    Thanks for letting me share, all.

    My significant other doesn't share my enthusiasm. I had to drag him to the Apple Store last week.

    Congrats iGary!

    What a fantastic rig to compute on!

    Ah yes... I remember the discussion of your new "secret" job. It looks like you're getting a system that can handle it. :)

    Congratulations, and keep us posted (with whatever you can ;) )!

    Congrats!
    I hope you're not using iPhoto for all that..... :rolleyes:
    BTW, what program do you use to keep track of all those images?
