A VDI file is an image file used by VirtualBox as the virtual hard disk for guest OS. I was using Windows XP in VirtualBox and then I found out that my disk space inside Windows XP is getting smaller due to software and other stuffs.

It makes configuring launchd really easy. i’m currently planning on using it to setup some automatic trigger system for various stuffs. will post more about that later.

so finally i’ve come back to the mac world..It’s been 2 years since i sold my titanium powerbook G4 in 2005 and to kick off the new year, on 4th of January 2007 i bought myself a black macbook.There was a New Year Sale in Biccamera, one of the famous electronics/computer store in Japan (i’ll have to tell that story another time..anyway i was in Japan for new year..). The macbook was on sale for 157,800 yens. The retail price in Japan was 178,000 yens.Thats a 20,200 yens discount.Back in my home, Malaysia, the black macbook is priced at RM5999 which is equivalent to 206,845 yens. It was all in good timing. I saved almost RM1400 on the macbook. The price that i paid for it in Malaysian Ringgit was RM4646. Well..im going to go back to tinkering my new blackbook..
