A somewhat new world...

So, my PC was starting to die. The monitor was going wonky on me, the
printer decided that it no longer wanted to print things as nicely as
it used to, and then one day it just didn't want to start up iTunes
and whined when I attached my iPod. I finally got it to work, but it
took so long I had to go to work.

I'd had enough.

Granted, the PC was at least six or seven years old and while I took
pretty good are of it, it had simply had enough. Since I didn't, and
don't, want Vista in my house, I made the next logical choice.

I'm now the proud owner of a Mac, which I've named Trefusis not after
the philosopher, but after a character created by Stephen Fry.

I haven't used a Mac in nearly twenty years, but things are slowly
coming back to me... I love how user friendly it is and yet, how much
more in depth I can get. I. Love. My. Mac. I'm so happy with my
decision to switch...

So...yeah! That's all the news that's currently fit to print. :D

Congrats! You must be makin' the big director salary to afford a Mac! ;-) I'm hoping their prices come down to a realistic level someday. Meanwhile, I'm required to use a PC since the whole business world does. Sigh.

Not director salary here, just debt. I needed a new computer so I thought I might as well go for the big guns for editing. So far, I'm not sorry in the least.

I still have a PC laptop, which I love to bits, and I've had very little trouble integrating the entire thing. The only thing I have troubles with at the moment is that I can't get my laptop to sync up with my printer through the network. I think that's a firewall issue because it worked just fine before I messed with a couple of settings...and now I'm just babbling...sorry. :D
