just a few things

1. The hole in my mouth has begun to hurt actually now, as opposed to 'not really' as it was before.

2. a) OS X is neet(and oh so fast), but I find I have no programs, and also that quite a few of the ones I do have don't run effectively. b) There are quite a few things which have been removed as far as customizability. I assume as they now have the OS stable at least, more customizable features will begin to appear with updates, and also that if I learn to manipulate the Unix base to OS X, I will be able to play with the system design a bit more. File sharing is much less intuitive, and less user controlable, although at least aliasing works now.
c) The conclusion I think was made that this OS would be much easier to work into if I hadn't come from a previously organized file structure, now trying to have to reorganize my thought processes and working habits.
d) One thing that is good: I have virtually no games, unless I launch the slow OS 9 emulator. This is good, plus I can always load OS 9 as the system and run it effectively, as I will have to write papers at some point, and Office won't be out until the fall. Yikes.
e) Overall it is good, and I'm willing to work with it...any suggestions as to good books I can learn BSD from?

3. I started this hours ago. Damn. Must post now.

I would recommend finding some o'reilly books on the subject. o'reilly is normally one of the best resources for unix and open source software.

either unix in a nutshell or if BSD in a nutshell. Also, since linux is fairly similar. you can read linux info and the linux HOWTOs for some good online resources.
