new computers

I have not seen them, but I know for a fact that our new Macintosh Pro Workstation (4GB memory etc.) and the accompanying 30″ screen have now been installed in the lab (including some post-production software). I am looking forward to checking them out when I get back to Umeå. We are also in the process of installing a new powerful game computer (with a massive 8800GTX/HTDP/768MB graphics card) and a new scanner computer (including a new slide scanner). Should be fun! And this is just the beginning! But as Nathan said in relation to some recent information about our planned expansion: “I’m glad to hear that not only is the expansion physical but academic and cultural as well.” It is clearly not only about technology, but it would not happen without the technology (or could it?).
