Back in black (and white)
I've been a Mac user for a long time. When I arrived in NZ, I didn't know how long I'd be here, so I used internet cafes and then my work computer to do my blogging and writing. Windows machines of course.
I thought I'd put up with it until I could get my iMac sent over. I survived until a few weeks ago when I decided a laptop would be the way to go, and thinking more about money than performance I bought a Dell unit.
Great value, plenty of power. But I just couldn't get my head around it as my own computer, not having a happy time with Vista, and now I sit here typing away on a new MacBook. I'm back in a Mac in black, and I'm not going back.
Something else I've spent some coin on recently was some gear from rapha, a couple of fixed t-shirts and this beautiful work of art, the Rouleur photo annual.
Images of the very best quality, which take a look at cycling like you've never seen it before. Stunning black and whites and colour shots, revealing the grit and sweat of the road, the track and cyclocross. Inspiring, makes you want to pull on a wool jersey and ride past an old church.
