New Toy!

I got me a new laptop :o)

My Macbook had served me well for the last 3.5 years, and survived one bout of case cracking and free repair by Apple but the second time (only a few weeks ago) was a duct tape repair job as I just didn't want to deal with it again, plus it was cracked on both sides of the track pad this time.  Seeing as I'd had a nice little tax rebate from a few years ago, I decided to treat myself to a better laptop with better resolution as the Macbook had been annoying me on that front for a while.  I didn't want anything massive, so a 17" was right out of the question, but a 15" would be bearable and give me a few extra pixels.  Handily,  just as I was about to give in and buy a 15" Macbook Pro, Apple announced some new ones with shinier processors -and- extended graphics options to give even better resolution on the 15" model.  Yay!  So I got one.

And I'm using it now and it's -lovely-!

The old Macbook will be recycled as a spare *cough*Windows*cough* machine(!)

Right.  So.  I forgot that I'd be at Info Security Europe today and unable to go to the gym, so static bike work didn't happen.  Not wanting to run or swim two days in a row, I've decided to take a rest day today instead.  It's not like any work I do this week will make much difference to my performance on Monday (unless I overdo it, of course), so I'm not feeling bad about taking a rest day where I hadn't planned to.
