MacBook! \o/

Yay my MacBook's here! I spent the last couple of hours toying with it, setting stuff up and trying to get used to things. I do like it thus far, even if it takes a bit to get used to, and I still use all the Windows shortcuts and all, bad habit.

Still have to dig up word for Mac, Open Office maybe, unless there's something better out there. Also a GAIM like program to use for chatting. I found something called 'Fire' can't figure out how to go into an IRC channel, it connects find, but no clue where to set it so it enters a channel , installed a bunch of other things there, just in case. Added music as well, about four days worth of it on iTunes.

Mmmm must go on a software hunt tomorrow after class.. not to mention buy an External Hard Disk...and a laptop case.

I'd actually recomment Adium -- it uses the gaim codebase + some pretty slick UI visuals. Also, I think Fire got discontinued and their team was merged with the Adium team. Or maybe it was some other IM client.

Also, I believe there's a version of X-Chat available as well.

Ah! Thanks. Downloaded and installed Adium. Trying to remember all my passwords now.

There's an X Chat Aqua that's for Mac OS X. I'll try that one.

Any idea on what's a good Word/Excel/PPT like program for a Mac? And wonder if they have ElitePad Lite for Mac... Extensive (and expensive in some cases) software hunt, considering most of my programs won't work on a Mac. HAH!
