Snow Leopard

Purchased Snow Leopard and iLife '09 tonight. Made two full backups of my 17" MacBook Pro to external drives. Earlier in the day I updated to the latest version of SuperDuper!.

I manually removed
Dave, from Thursby Software. I've used Dave for years -- since Mac OS 9. I wonder how much I'll miss it? Being paranoid, I also removed Cisco's VPN software.

Installation of Snow Leopard took about 45 minutes.

I gained about 10GB of disk space. Explored whether or not to use the built-in Cisco VPN support. Decided that I prefer the flexibility of using
Shimo. Reinstalled the Cisco VPN software.

Mail rebuilt its indexes on first startup but everything is working.
Had to re-enter my Airport password once on a subsequent restart. Don't know why.
System preferences didn't display its window the first few times I tried it from the Apple menu. I got into it via the AirPort icon in the menu bar; it's worked ever since.
Lost my registration for
Lux Delux.
RapidWeaver 4.2.3 doesn't work; the
beta does.

Parallels 4 looks to be working, but "prl_vm_app" is consuming almost 100% of the CPU. This doesn't seem to be a new problem, however.

Aquamacs, slime, and sbcl 1.0.30 as well as LispWorks 5.1.1 Personal passed a quick test.

While checking out Lisp, "prl_vm_app" stopped using so much CPU and is now behaving reasonably.

More adventures in the morning...
