Condor

Jump to: navigation, search

My laptop 'condor' is one of my computers in my office. Next is 'falcon'.

This is my main laptop. I use it for comms (Viber and Skype), web (Firefox, Safari, Chrome), media (iTunes, iMovie, Photos) and games (StarCraft II and Doom 3); it also has a Windows 10 VMWare Fusion VM ('tolerance') which I can use if I go out consulting. I also have Xcode on here so I can do test deploys of iPhone software.
