I think I did well today. Excusing the fact that when my boss asked me to e-mail my colleagues I ended up typing in my personal e-mail address (force of habit) instead of my work address. Then, when I went to upgrade a client’s forum because it was about 10 versions out of date, Transmit seemed to delete the files that I wasn’t replacing in the various folders thus killing it. MAJOR panic moment! Uploaded an entirely new version and that seemed to fix everything though. *phew*
Spent half of the morning struggling with the single click mouse until about lunch time where I thought “sod it” and switched to my scrolly two-button mouse tucked nicely in my bag (I plan for all eventualities, heh). After that, using the Mac was hardly different from using Windows — minus the weird-ass keyboard setup which I kept falling foul of (” and @ are the wrong way ’round damnit). I feel the Apple key is incredibly badly positioned — not just because I’m a Windows user primarily, but because I have to mangle my fingers together to copy&paste with the keyboard shortcuts.
I quickly got annoyed at Safari and stuck Firefox in my dock instead, well loaded with my familiar extensions already. I was hoping that extensions would not be OS dependant but found the HTML Validator extension “is not available for MacOSX”. Bollocks.
Heyho, settled in quite nicely I think. Got on with quite a bit of work already, had a meeting, discussed cats who leave ‘presents’ on the kitchen floor and drank about 4 cups of coffee. All is good. :) I feel happy at work, which I’ve not felt for a while…

Edit (note to self): handy mac shortcuts.
