WWDC: Day Two

Leopard Experiment Gone Bad
Originally uploaded by Jason Archer

I loaded up Leopard and it totally hosed my Macbook. Without getting into the nitty gritty, it had to to with Active Directory and the fact that I was logged in as myself. It has been extremely frustrating. But I have it back up to about 75% and can get the rest of the way when I get home.

Sessions today were okay. Many things really over my head and too fast. I got access to the ADC members area so I can have the video after the event as well as sample code and Keynote Presentations. I told Micki that it would be similar to her going to an education conference for PhD’s only. That’s how I feel from time to time. Trying to keep perspective.

So Sam gave me some great advice today. Chill out. It’s a computer that can be fixed. It’s a conference you go to and soak up what you can. Have some fun. So i went to a Giants game today. It was awesome. Got a ticket in the 3rd row of the bleachers. Giants won too. I walked the entire way. And also saw the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean for the first time today. Really nice.

Well, headed to bed. Going to try and get up early to read my new Renovare’ Bible and get started off the right way. Then there’s an iTunes U lab at 9. So, better get some sleep. More tomorrow.

    [Ahem] It is beta, and we have *no* idea how it works with AD/MS/Etc.

    I say it is to be expected. Glad you will be bring it back for some testing…

    Have fun!

    Dude, you way brave. Other than, you know, it crashing your machine, what’s your take on the new cat?

    yeah. it will be good to keep it running and test it. I did speak to one of the guys who wrote Leopard and he said it was an AD issue. Said if I would have waited and brought it home, it would more than likely have resolved itself. bummer.

    Hey Brian!

    Leopard is pretty cool. Lots of candy. spaces, time machine, finder, etc. Some stuff is pretty cool. the stuff I’m loving is the Leopard server with Podcast Producer. It’s gonna rock our world. Most people are saying that this was the worst keynote ever because Steve Jobs really didn’t reveal anything new. We already knew about Leopard and the iPhone.

    Preview is upgraded. Mail as well. I was really hoping iCal was going to have Exchange support, but oh well. Overall, it’s been a great experience. Great for me. But most of all, great for SAU.
