I am trying to get iAtkos running on a virtual machine. It's a lot harder than I expected.

I reinstalled OS X on my MSI Wind Netbook today and upgraded it the 10.5.7, along with a MSI Wind driver package. Almost everything is perfect! I still have Win7 as a dual boot too.

From what I understood, only 10.4 was able to install on a VM. I have only heard bad things trying to virtualize OSX. Keep trying I guess . . .

So apparently, since the wifey got a job, it's HIGHLY possible that I'll be getting a 13" MacBook Pro in two weeks. See, here in TN, we have a "Tax Free Weekend" . . . AND my wife's teacher discount will make things much cheaper. w00t!

So the wife is going to let me purchase a MacBook Pro! The funny thing is that I signed up for the Juniper Visa card on Apple's website (12 months no financing) and I was denied! I guess having NO debt is a bad thing. Who knew?

Oh well, now instead of waiting 3 more weeks for no tax weekend, I gotta wait 6 weeks for the wifey to get paid so we can pay the MBP in cash. Oh well, this will give me plenty of time to focus on my CCENT that I'll try and take next Friday.

Yeah, having no debt can actually lead to a low credit rating, you need to use it and pay it off constantly to build a good one. I had a car loan that I paid on time everytime, now I have a rock solid rating. ::

The wife and I talked more, decided that if we can do it, we are going to build a privacy fence first like we originally planned. So the Macbook will be pushed back until Christmas haha. But the cool thing is that we'll be getting a puppy!!! YAY!!!
