telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


No Buyer's Remorse - 15 Hours Post Apple Purchase

I thought that the cold, hard light of day would bring waves of buyer’s remorse, but so far I’m pretty optimistic with the Apple purchase yesterday. That being said, it took 3 hours of waffling, adding and removing different models from my Apple Cart….
But I finally decided, and clicked *Buy NOW*.

In a few days, a delivery will show up at my house.
A spiffy 2008 model 15” Apple MacBook Pro 2.5 Ghz Laptop. Upgraded HD and upgraded Video Card from the entry level 15” MacBook Pro.

Sweet Jesus, what have I done!?!??!!?
(deep breaths)
(it’s going to be OK, I can run windows on it still)

This morning, after shovelling a path for the smapp dog to try and reach the back yard (tunnel still in progress), the first thing I did was figure out the finances associated with Floobergeist Fotos. You see, I’ve got to try and justify the Apple purchase against a fledgeling new business venture. Once I do that, all is well in the world, and I can just sit back and be excited. I wonder if I should have done that step yesterday, before the clicking of the *BUY* button. I wonder if I would have still done it? Likely.

Without the new laptop, Floobergeist isn’t going to get very far. It’s been running on (and I’ve been working on) an OLD P4 desktop that was built in 2002. It’s got all of 256Mb of RAM and a whopping 60 GB hard drive.
