well, i dragged the wife to the mac store at the local mall. there were about 150 people in line waiting for the store to open at 6pm tonight. pretty crazy considering its a friday night. well, it took about 20 mins but i bought a copy of Leopard (family pack) $199. All went well, and heck i got a spiffy new apple shirt. its black and has the leopard logo on it.
instantly my mind clears and tells me i best get home in a hurry. i am going to sacrifice my mac book pro to the leopard gods. ill write more later about the install process.
