Considering "the switch"

As part of my new job, I got myself a MacBook pro and have been running Bootcamp on it over the last few days. All in all the experience is good, but there are issues with Windows running on the MacBook that bother me (bad sound drivers, and the fact that the clock resets on each startup). However, before I installed BootCamp I spent quite a bit of time on the Mac and got over some of my "floating windows" phobias. To that end, I'm considering going all the way and switching to OSX. So to get to my point, is there anyone out there that's recently been through this that can give me some pointers on what I might miss?

My biggest concern is not finding a worthy replacement for Beyond Compare. I absolutely love the program, and haven't been able to find anything comparable on the Mac. I've seen other diff tools, but nothing with the feature set that Beyond Compare has (saved sessions, full folder tree synchronizations, folder tree comparison reports, exlucsions, rule sets, etc. etc.). Any suggestions in this area would be fantastic, because honestly, the lack of a good Mac file diff tool would keep me on the PC for good...

I've been outed

Angela has outted me... I do indeed now work at lynda.com. My official position is Web Application Architect. So what do I do?

In no particular order (and certainly not exhaustive):

  • Maintain existing ASP-driven site
  • Fix issues (we don't have any y'know, our site is PERFECT!)
  • Develop new applications for the site
  • Infiltrate the company with ColdFusion (they will all be assimilated)

I've been working at the LDC (sounds fancier that way) for about 2 months, and I'm enjoying being constantly engaged with new things to work on.

So I'm sorry if my posts have been few and far between. Not only do I have a new job, but I'm getting ready to move cross-country again. I'm heading back to the homeland, Texas... We're due to move in July, and I can't wait :). Here's a sneak peek...
