I went to the doctor this morning to make sure my recent cough wasn't anything serious. It isn't. Their best guess was "a virus" and I was told it should go away in another week or two. At least it probably isn't whooping cough or anything.
I'd been planning on picking up a copy of the new version of OS X
this week at Apple's launch event
but finally broke down and ordered the family pack from Amazon
last week (The $50 rebate is tough to resist even though I'm really tired of playing the rebate game. $150 after rebate for five computers in the same household is a pretty good deal and I can finally have all of the computers in the apartment on the same version of X). I may still drop by the Apple Store Friday night to see if there are any interesting deals. (They had 10% off pretty much anything when they released the last OS update, but we'll see if the rumored updates
take place before Friday or not.)
