    Macs and coffee.

    Quad, Venti Flat White from Starbucks and my son's Titanium DVI 1.0 Ghz with 1GB ram, 1mb L3 cache and 100GB hard drive.

    The LCD you see came from my old dead TiBook 400. It's STILL being useful! 14 year old screen!

    EDIT: Should let it be known that my son's DVI died about 6 or so months later. I sent it off to another user here so he could scavenge it for parts. An attempt at baking the logicboard to resurrect it failed.

    I liked that apple shaped coffee cup avatar you used to have. What happened to that?

    The avatar was just too small to see any real details. I was unhappy with that.

    You just reminded me that I wanted a cup of coffee. To the Keurig!

    My two favorite things.

    TiBook + Salmon. Presentation isn't great, I know, but the ginger Thai marinade is fantastic.

    This should become the legion of Mac lovers and Coffee drinkers!

    ----------

    I would definitely be a part of that...

    Not sure if my $5/month department swill belongs in the same league, but here it is(in an American Chemical Society mug, no less) in front of my G5.

    At least my coffee was made in a Bunn coffee maker. The company that makes Bunn Coffee Pots was founded by a member of the same family as Jacob Bunn, who was a founder of the Illinois Watch Company(and the person from who Illinois got the Bunn and Bunn Special name).

    I need to get one of those :)

    I'm working on the ACS Mug collection. Your first year of membership, they send you Hydrogen. The next year it's Helium, then Lithium, and so on. Some of the professors around the department have them up through Nickel or Copper.

    I call it my $90 coffee cup, since I don't really see any benefit other than getting a coffee cup every year(it pays off every other year or so when I go to a National meeting, and save $150 on registration fees for the meeting).

    My wife would be drooling. She's big on math and the periodic table of the elements and all that.

    I just managed to get a B in Algebra in high school and that was putting everything I had into it. Math and I have a very hate-hate relationship.

    I picked one up the other day from surplus...it's even sort of Mac related since the computer brand it was advertising proudly proclaimed that they were tested with NextStep :)

    There was a stack of them, and I stuck a few in the drawer for future use.

    I actually haven't used a mousepad of any sort in years, but the brand new counters in our new office/lab are too shiny for an optical mouse to register correctly. The notebook was the best I could come up for a little while. It's better than a piece of paper or paper towel like some of the lab computers have :)

    I don't use mouse pads :D I use either books for paper. I used to tape a sheet of paper to the table as a mousepad but lately I have been using white paper books that are useless for what they are supposed to be used for.

    When they get dirty and start to rip apart I just replace it. With a mousepad I'd have to wash it and stuff...

    My late grandpa used to put small model airplanes into light bulbs that size.

    Well, interesting!

    I've been posting "Mac and Coffee" pics to my Facebook page since late 2009. Just never thought to mention it here.

    So, here is this morning's Mac and Coffee…

    As we are already off and running, post your two (or more) favorite things (assuming one of them is a Mac, or at least part of an Apple device).

    Here is another Picture of one of my Lamps this time Lighting up a sawtooth on my desk :) the Lamp in question is a Philips Made osram branded 180W Low pressure sodium lamp used in motorway lighting in the UK (the M62 still has lots of these installed) the lamp in the pic had not fully warmed up (thats why its still red and not the monochromatic yellow LPS lamps have)
