What Computer do Pro Surfers Use?

From a recent article on Surfline:

"we are out here in the middle of the South Pacific with the best surfers in the world, and you may in fact be wondering how they deal with a flat spell...websites checked, emails sent (yeah, there's wireless on the deck of the restaurant, courtesy of Globe, and almost every pro is armed with some kind of Mac laptop)"

That's right folks, surfers love Mac. ;-)

I remember not more than 5 years ago I was wondering if I would ever be able to switch back to a Mac. Last Christmas I got my chance in the form of my current 17" G4 Powerbook. I love it and while I still use a Dell at the office, that is going to change when I get the opportunity to purchase an Intel G5 iMac. Yummy!

Annoyance of the day

Annoyance of the day:

If you tell me you are going to call me, or send me an email, or whatever it may be you sure as heck better do it if you expect me to respect you. Say what you do and do what you say.

I'm feeling demotivated already. :-)

Rails Presentation for HOUG

Along with Seth, I will be presenting tomorrow before the Honolulu Oracle User's Group. While Seth will be presenting on the highly geeky topic of RDF and Oracle, I will be presenting the ultra-cool and hip Ruby on Rails framework to the Oracle peeps. Come on down and get ya some Rails and some pizza while you're at it.
