Tiger... Finally

| Comments

So, I finally managed to get my hands on a copy of OS X Tiger. I’ve been meaning to for quite some time, and finally decided to this month.

Quite impressed so far, although the installer wasn’t quite as straight forward as it made out. Apparently there are only 2 steps:

1) Insert the Mac OS X Install Disc 2) Follow the on screen instructions

Well, they failed to mention that you’ll have to recreate your user as it will mysteriously vanish (maybe this was just me, dunno), but the home directory was still there and once I readded the user, all was well and the disk thrashed about a bit, all was well.

Currently playing with Dashboard. I’m writing this using the WordPressDash widget and also have running Ashley’s UK Travel news widget (which may prove usful over the next few days), the dictionary lookup (always useful) and the Weather applet (which shows me that the temperature is currently -6C!).

I’m rather liking the Wordpress widget and it may persuade me to blog more often when it’s so simple to get to it.

Also quite impressed with Spotlight, it seems that it may well replace QuickSilver for me, if I can get to grips with it, will have to see how it goes.

Anyway, off to watch a Clerks 2 video exclusive over at ign.com.
