Virgin Install

Scott McNulty
My good fortune is your gain, dear readers. Whatever do I mean, you ask? I just got a brand spanking new Mac mini at work and I am in the throes of setting it up. Well, it is all set up but I am still working on getting the OS and software installed in such a way that pleases me.

Since I am very clever I thought this process would make a great new feature here on TUAW. 'Virgin Install' will chronicle those software packages that I (or any of the other bloggers who would like to chime in) deem an essential piece of my Mac experience and must be installed on any new Mac I encounter.

Keep your eyes peeled for the first 'Virgin Install' in which I highlight a piece of software that even C.K. hadn't heard of.

Scott McNulty is a techie with an English degree. His first Mac was an iMac in the summer of 1999 and he hasn�t looked back since. Considered an expert by few, and an annoyance by many Scott takes it all in stride. When not writing in the third person about himself, he can be found taking care of several Windows servers and more Windows desktops than you can shake a stick at (hey, a guy's gotta make a living). He also maintains a personal website; Blankbaby, and is "Philadelphia's Most Influential Blogger", a title which is self-proclaimed and entirely unfounded.
