Comments on WhatsOnYourBox: Hm… Mac OS 10.3.9 (and older version), Emacs 22 (latest release, self-compiled), Firefox, Terminal.app (the default terminal emulator for Mac with . . .

I’m not a code-slinger… I’m just a geeky Microbiologist-turned-QA Manager and part-time DM.

Mu laptop is a hand-me-down from our IT director. Still a sweet behemoth (Compaq nx9600). I run WinXP?, the usual corporate tools + Firefox, Google Desktop, iGoogle page with Google reader (that’s how I catch your posts so fast) and Last.fm’s scrobling widget that spies on what I listen to while mascarding as a Streaming Music radio.

As my IT director understands geekyness. I have Admin access to the laptop and was encouraged to install games on the machine. His words: “Have you heard the sound on this machine, awesome’

Of course, while I lug around that 12 pounds monster, he has this slick new MacBook? that runs 3 OSes (Win XP, Mac OS and Linux)

Good setup :) Last.fm rocks.

I noticed you tagged me. I’ll be replying tomorrow, ok?

Firefox with 13 pages open – I know I’m not trying hard enough!;)

Pownce desktop client
Snoop (Reinvigorate.net client)
FeedDemon?
Psi (Jabber client)
Steam (steampowered.com game thingy!)
Mozy backup
SlimServer? (Squeezebox server thingy)
last.fm client

All on Vista Home Premium 64bit – I hope I don’t make your page feel dirty just by mentioning that! ;)

I’m actually proud to have been able to expunge all instances of IE opening in my Vista Desktop. This was not easy for a non power-user like me.

Cool for the tag Greywulf, take your time. Hope you didn’t mind.

Hm… Mac OS 10.3.9 (and older version), Emacs 22 (latest release, self-compiled), Firefox, Terminal.app (the default terminal emulator for Mac with its own set of problems), and a SSH agent. When I’m developing stuff, I might also start Apache. The rest is not really under my control.
