Well, as Christopher mentioned in the previous post, we spent over 8 hours in the Mac Lab last Friday, during our day off from school, cleaning and revamping the lab. Within that 8 hours we not only installed Snow Leopard on all the computers, but we also created an awesome work station, mostly due to the fact that there are two screens to work with. It is powered by an older Power Mac G5 and is connected to two very large displays. Today, being the first day of second semester, we got to work at our new and improved work station. Although it is not our primary computer, it is still quite fun to work at, with the two displays and all.
The only con to the newly set up work station, currently “maclab47,” is that the computer is still running Tiger, Mac OS X v10.4. The only thing preventing us form installing Leopard (Snow Leopard is only supported by an Intel processor) is Pro Tools, with parts that cannot handle the already 3 year old operating system.
After today, the first work day back from the end of first semester, I thought I would try and make a final copy of the “red flower,” something that has been hovering over our heads for days. Using the G5, I created this image, which is featured on this post.
On a different note, I have decided to apply to the Marine Technology Society Summer Internship Program this summer. I believe it would be a great experience and quite interesting. Although I do not have any interest in pursuing either of these fields as a career choice, it will be something worth having under my belt as I enter college and “real” world in just over a year. The best part of applying and being accepted into the program, is that after 6 weeks of work you receive a check for almost $2,000. Not that money is the most important thing in life, but that part will be very nice!
Anyway, enough for now!
