Return of the Mac

I have my Powerbook G4 back now. Woooot! It has a fresh install of 10.4.6 on it from the Mac repair shop.

The question is, what do I do with my CCC backup firewire HDD? Clone it back? Migrate it back?

Having watched others roll into 10.5 aka Leopard, I thought it would be time for me to roll into a fresh computer as well. Sans postgresql, custom php install, CVS repository and the last 2 years of installed junk. (Not saying CVS/PHP/PostgreSQL are junk!)

So I’m doing it. I’m migrating. A fresh install – and we will see how good it is. The advantage? A newer faster install.Disadvantages? Days spend getting things right again. But that iss the fun part for a geek! If we can’t tweek, what else is there.

I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
