My favorite on this list is "get a life." Seriously, I feel dismayed when I think about how much time I've spent in front of a computer (at least my career has profited from it). But after the recent disappointment, and feeling tired of the interminable wait, it's time to move on in some way. My 3,1 has been upgraded many times - just about to the limit - and yet in day to day tasks it's feeling old and slow. I've ordered parts for a hackintosh. If it fails, I can make a Linux box out of it.
