Good news

I felt so energized after today's visit to the physiotherapist, that I decided to take a detour into town instead of going straight home. Lucky I did, because I bumped into an old friend on his lunchbreak, who when I explained that I was interested in buying a computer, gave me some good advice and tried to sell me on an Apple MacIntosh. Not completely convinced I want one yet, I'm going to go round and see the thing in action at his place tomorrow...and he's proved himself willing to upload my CoRo pictures then, too!

Ooh, I hope you'll mend faster with this in mind. :-)

Ooh. I've never tried a Mac, so I have no idea, but it sounds good. Just be sure it'll take all the software you want.

I hope the photos are good (I'm a little worried)

Don't be. I like my Eric blurry.

Don't buy a Mac! I spent half the morning trying to do something on a Mac that took me ten minutes to do on my PC. Very, very unpractical!

Welcome back, btw....

Welcome back, btw

Cheers, love. And I haven't forgotten: we'll synchronise diaries again soon. And as lck would have it, mine is mostly empty for the next 3 weeks at least! ;-)

You're contemplating a Mac and you work for HP? Have you gone crazy? It's the leg, isn't it? It's affected your ability to think logically.

Mac's are evil - pretty, but evil. We had a machine at school that was dedicated to making the production of any teaching materials/newsletters/PR stuff a nightmare. All the staff had access to PCs, running Win95 and then Win98. The Mac spoke a different language - it's from the planet Tharg. totkat_org scolded my inability to adapt. It's intuitive she tells me.

A decade ago at Leicester University, we did everything on Macs. I only learned to work with PCs after my return to The Netherlands...but I think I've gone off the idea of buying one. Sure, they may be beautiful and offer a more stable environment, but they're also quite expensive and not as versatile. So no, I'm going with a PC...as calove said, I can always install a hw firewall.

BTW, hp does have Macs, too...
