Posting from new Mac...

Yep. Got me one! Need to finish getting it set up; the internal is half the size of what I'm used to working with and so I need to figure out how to do what I have been doing in a different way. I needed more power, Scotty!

The Store had them back in stock, and as I have been looking for a refurb MBP with the same specs as this beast (and this beast is not quite half the price) I "settled" for the Studio, low end. I have given up portability to some degree; at least the little one isn't 40 pounds, like the last one I bought new some 18 years ago.

Now to learn R and get those large data sets worked up. Someone was stating that he had some large CSV files; the ones I'm working with are about a million lines long, and could potentially be as wide as 60 columns or so--60 million data points potentially in the matrix--and the old 2015 MBP was choking before I even got to these guys. And there are some 130-140 files to go through.

I may be asking for help, if there are any of you who know R.

Ooooh... I have the M1 mini and I'm still feeling a bit of processor envy at your new purchase. Congratulations!



It is what it is.

The base Ultra was available yesterday, and then sold out this morning. I just couldn’t justify the 2x price.

Stu- Stu- Studio LEADER!

To boldly go where no MRFer has gone before.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Keep selling and buying the Studio, and have the Apple Stock go back above 180!
