Welcome to Matt's Mac Paradise

I've been wanting to post a picture of my new work setup for awhile, but I wanted to wait until I finished getting setup over at 160 Shadyac Avenue. Just for fun, I thought I'd go VMWare Fusion crazy and boot up every virtual machine I've got - you're actually looking at 7 OS's booted concurrently between two machines. To the left I've got my 15" MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM) running Mac OS 10.4, Windows XP, and Ubuntu. To the right I've got my Mac Pro tower (2 x 2 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors, 5 GB 66 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM RAM) driving the dual 19" Dell LCD's, running Mac OS 10.4, Windows XP, Ubuntu, and Solaris Express. Whew - that was a mouthful. Thanks to Matt Raible for blogging about the Griffin Technologies iCurve laptop stand - I picked up its successor, the Elevator, for my MacBook Pro. I've got pictures from my past desktops over the years - I need to dig them up and show the procession of developer technology here. It's been quite a ride from my first system as a junior developer six plus years ago.

Haven't had much time to blog lately....



....because we've been packing to move on top of all of our regular projects. St. Jude has nicely renovated a new building for us, so we developers are moving. This is where I'm headed on Monday:

I'm both loving it and a little sad - I've been sitting in my desk for nearly my entire career as a software developer. I just know I'm going to park in the garage and come downstairs one morning to find my office gone. :-)
