Back to black 23 Feb, 2013
Mr. Mooney recently posted about his old Apple MacBook, which he received in recognition for all his hard work with ILUG in 2007. Seeing his post reminded me of the “mb4bp” initiative that Volker kicked off:
In December 2006, through the wonderful kindness of the wider IBM Lotus community, I was able to buy my first professional grade (and new to boot) machine. This started something big. Within eight months of receiving that splendid little laptop I had formed my own company and resigned from my employer of some twelve years.
I haven’t looked back!
But what of Kinky, the famous little black MacBook? Well, he lives! We’re on hard drive number three, and the keyboard is a little iffy, but Kinky is still pressed into daily service at Poole Towers :-)
