I've started, so I'll finish

And that, in a nutshell, is what I've been doing these past few weeks when I've not been on here: I've been indulging myself, mostly in an effort to forget what a crappy PC my computer has become (honestly, I'm amazed it's actually working today). I've been toying with the idea of getting a laptop to replace it, but every time I've gone into town, I've come home with another pair of shoes...What can I say? I know where I am with footwear, and I don't know what I should look for in computers. Should I stay with a Windows platform, or go for a Mac?

Nice boots. I wouldn't buy a Mac - it is like trying to learn a new language and then having to speak one language at home and another one at work, or drive a right hand drive car at work and an automatic left hand drive to go home.

They used to use them for the junior school children at home, then they went on to PCs when they got to secondary school. Reason for the Macs was nothing to do with ease of use etc. but that 'the small children like the colours'...

I know quite a few people like them, and are then always very, very vocal about how good they are, but then a lot of people like Brussels sprouts and I've never understood that either!

Funnily enough, I started out as a Mac user way back in the early 90s, during my stint at Leicester University. It wasn't until I arrived back in the Netherlands that I was properly introduced to PCs and MS-DOS...

Hmmm, sprouts. Yummy!
