What do you do to stay sane while you wait for your new Mac to arrive?
set up a widget countdown timer and wach it, check tracking statues hourly and carefully watch the clock.
Those last two are a little hard to do on my iMac 266 with OS X 10.2.8...
post on MacRumors forums
however i am not getting my MBP until January/February (cash flow problem -not enough cash at the moment for a MBP to flow my way-)
i guess that in Jan/Feb i will join the ranks of the "waiting for the next update" threads.
Refresh my order status every couple hours, and in between, post on MacRumors.com.
Game on my PC (BF2) on my orgasmic 37'' monitor
I lost my sanity looooooong before I clicked the "process order" button.
I am mad and have not ordered a Mac. Not sure if those two are related though...
I dont get new Macs often ( ) but when I do...
I just use the one I have at the moment, anxiously waiting for a new one
Lots of chocolate and caffeine
Sanity is an illusion. Not something I've claimed to have for years. (I've got kids)
get into heated arguments about nothing really important on macrumors, and call the local apple store twice a day to see if the machine i want is in even tho i am on the waiting list and they will call me when it gets here.
Don't forget to refresh your FedEx tracking page at least every 15 minutes. I should know...I ordered my first Mac last Wednesday! MB 2.0 white, 100GB and I can barely take it. To quote Tom Petty, "the waiting is the hardest part."
put 100 rounds thru my 1911 .45, target practice, hang with friends everyday normal things cause there is nothing that you can do that is going to make your Mac come faster. the only thing you can do it take your mind off of it anyway possible.
Watch videos and TV or listen to radio, play my guitars, take care of pets, cleaning chores, do laundry, naps, post to MacRumors, shop for prices on audio/music gear (doesn't help much) raid refrigerator, make more coffee, chain smoke, it's pretty much hopeless.
Grade student papers and think how lovely the grades will look once input.
I dont order macs... when I want/need one I walk into a store and buy one
well.. if I can offord it at the time.
I've bought 3 macs, a 23" monitor, 4GB RAM, a 19" monitor (not apple), 2 BT mice, 2 BT keyboards, 2 cable keyboard, 2 cabled Mighty Mice ... this year
(yeah, I know - made the switch in a big way)
My credit card is screaming at me - NO MORE APPLE PURCHASES...
(does this look like the post of a sane person?)
(( anyone wanna buy a 2004 model Range Rover? - I could do with an X-Serve at home ))
i peer out of the window in the hope of seeing a big orange lorry outside my gate.
just never know what time they'll turn up
basically do anything to keep ur mind off of it. smoke, eat, actually go to work, sleep, have sex...whatever
The OP asked what you do to stay sane...
Start reading threads on how wonderfully cheap Dell's are and then laughing at what those morons are missing out on!
Thats defined as sanity right?
