Tiger (why be different?)

Just installed Tiger on my PowerBook. Naturally the first app that I run is Mail, right? After all, it’s where I spent a significant amount of my life time. But before I can experience the new Mail UI, it tells me that it wants to convert my existing mail folders to the new format (one message per file, for ease of Spotlight indexing). Since I cache my entire IMAP hierarchy locally, together with archives, this means converting 53,322 messages; Mail estimates that it’ll take just over an hour. So I think I’ll let it get on with the job.

(Perhaps I’ll drive over to the nearby Apple store for the launch party… see if I can score a T-shirt or something.)
