    Maybe I should start having a good time

    It's always a good time

    Was more asking for an opinion than a method, but thanks anyway. . Profile pic has a JPG temporary image, until I get the PNG from my desktop.

    Decided to tidy up. I think this theme looks far more professional. I've had this hat for ages on other forums and here in the past. Also I edited some changes for my Macbook in my sig and will be changing it again when I get my iPad over the next week or so.

    I thought about doing rounded corners on the bottom of my sig div, with the top ones square. Opinion?

    I turn the cursor speed up a little, but the default acceleration is fine. You do realise that OSX has a steeper acceleration curve than Windows, right? Makes it basically impossible to play games with a mouse unless you hack it off. They really need an option for this.

    Not that it'll work with Windows 8.

    One thing I don't like about OS X's trackpad cursor acceleration model is that it's just too slow by default. BetterTouchTool helps, but it also causes the System Preferences settings to be moot.

    Yeah, but that's for Windows and I rarely boot into my Windows 8 Partition at all. Like once every two weeks at most. Hell, it's still the Customer Preview. The Release Preview has since been released and the RTM is due out in a few days.

    Haha, while I usually recommend doing that for Windows or Linux, I've always had good experiences with OS X upgrades. My current system is Snow Leopard>Lion>Mountain Lion. I'm actually very happy with ML. Only downside is that it killed a MiddleClick app I had. Faster with better battery life.

    Note to self: Always wipe the system before an operating system upgrade. Mountain Lion ran like Windows 98 SE in all the bad ways possible before just nuking the entire thing and reinstalling Mountain Lion.

    Only after I got that 1 TB external.

    No more worries - plug it in, forget about it. (in OS X, at least. For Windows, I'll just manually initiate a backup if it's over the scheduled time - once a week)

    I have the disk partitioned into three parts - 250 GB for Time Machine, 250 GB for Windows Backup + Windows Image Backup, and 500 GB for general storage. The general storage partition uses exFAT for read and write compatibility on both Windows and OS X.

    Oh, and the Mountain Lion upgrade went off without any hitches, aside from the SkyDrive application stopping working. No problem, since I deal with SkyDrive more in Windows anyway. And $20.

    Yeah, well I hate space management with a passion. I upped the HDD in my laptop to 640GB (and 8GB RAM) a while ago, because I didn't want to be caught high and dry without any space. I don't backup everything, just the stuff I need. Some big ISOs/DMGs and my Steam directory are ignored, as well as Boot Camp.

    My Desktop only has a 115GB SSD, but I have 1TB Storage drive for media/downloads and a 2TB (2x1TB) RAID0 array for games. I hate have to shuffle stuff around, though. Considering finding the same model SSD as I have and running RAID0 on them for 230GB that reads/writes at over 550MB/s. Not having Sata3 on that board means I won't get the full speed of current SSDs.

    You back up regularly? That makes you one of about 1% of people.

    Keeping things light on my computer does wonders with backup times. I usually only have to wait 5 minutes per backup. Then again, when your average incremental backup is around 500 MB...

    Yeah, space management skills is a very good thing to have on a SSD.

    I found a Windows 8 VM on my Mac that I had forgotten was there. I was cleaning up to get my Time Machine backup to fit onto an external drive in case my Mountain Lion Upgrade goes belly up.

    Backup: 35GB/186GB. 5 hours remaining. I'll have to leave it overnight and do the upgrade at work tomorrow.
