Busy Weekend: Jaguar

It's Thursday and I'm finally getting around to writing about last weekend. It was a busy one. Friday night, one of my buddies and I drove out to Durham to stand in line for the release of Jaguar at the Apple Store. We got there about 9:30 and were already significantly far back in line. I saw doctre and eagle243. My buddy and I had a good time hanging back in the line and chatting with the guy who was ahead of us. I had borrowed one of the new Ericsson T68 phones from work to test the coverage along the interstate and in the Raleigh/Durham area and had some fun surfing the web and using AIM. The guy in front of us had a similar phone on a different carrier and we talked about phone technology for a while.

Finally, about 11:40, we got in the store. I picked up a copy of the new operating system and drooled over the iPods. My buddy picked up the operating system and a new iBook for his wife. All in all, it was a great time. We headed out of the store about midnight, when the event was scheduled to be over. But there were still over a hundred people in line and the folks at the store promised to stay open until everyone got in.

We headed back home and I got in about 2am, when I promptly went to sleep.

And, no, I still haven't had an opportunity to install Jaguar yet. I want to back up my current system, install OS9 on an external drive (for Classic use), and completely wipe out the drive in my computer before installing. It's going to be a time-consuming affair, and I just haven't had the time yet.
