The New Guy

After posting a couple videos on the blog, I realized that I hadn’t actually introduced myself (and neither had Phil . . . thanks Phil). So, by way of introduction, I’m Ryan Burns, and I’m the new guy in the office. I joined Logos about 2 months ago and have been loving it up here. I say, “up here” because prior to taking this job at Logos I was attending a Seminary 3,200 miles from Bellingham, in the sunny city of Orlando, FL. Now, while I do occasionally miss the sun, I’m more than happy to trade the sun for the cool temperature and amazing beauty of the Pacific Northwest. That, and Logos has a sweet coffee maker, and I love coffee.
In all seriousness though, I’m really thrilled to be a part of the Logos family. I’ve been a user of Logos for a little over a year, and every day I get more and more excited about our product. Most specifically though, I’m excited about Logos for Mac. As a mac user myself, I’ve had to join many of you in booting up windows on my mac in order to run Logos. Thankfully, mac users, our day is coming . . . soon. With beta testing wrapped up, the second release candidate being run through the ringer, and pre-orders coming in daily, the finish line is in sight. It is almost here.
While it might sound silly, I think the thing I’m most excited about is being able to quickly launch Logos. I mean, no more starting Parallels and waiting. Starting windows and waiting. Logging in and waiting. Then, finally, getting to start Logos. In all, it usually took me 4 or 5 minutes to go through that whole fiasco just to run my beloved Logos. Top that off with the fact that I never really figured out how to run parallels efficiently and probably have far too few system resources allocated to it, thus Logos (and all my other Windows programs) always run slow. That friends, however, is all about to change. Soon, we’ll all simply look down in our dock (unless you put your dock on the side) and with one simple click of the mouse, we’ll be running Logos. That is just beautiful.
So, mac users, be excited. Our day is coming. If you haven’t pre-ordered, there is still time. And, I’d also remind you about our special deal for those of you who are already Logos users and are crossgrading.
These are exciting times at Logos. I’m happy to be here and be part of the family. And every day I come into work I sit down at my desk, pull my Macbook out of my bag, place it on the corner of my desk, and launch the latest build of Logos for Mac. It is my way of saying, “I love Logos . . . and I Iove it on my mac.”
