Hi. My name isn't JuanWaynes, but it would sound like it was if you had a baby r.

Anyway, I'm editing film a great deal these days and need to get to know my Mac a bit better, so I thought I'd join the forum. So now we have a quorom. For em...

I have a kid and I'm gonna get married soon. I'm an actor. I'm an ex-programmer (COBOL 68 and 74, FORTRAN and EDL, which is the assembly language on the IBM Series/1 mainframe). And then R:Base and Dbase "programming". SQL. Before the internet. I remember when windows first sat atop DOS. But, computers made me crazy as a job. So I quit them. Much happier now, but much less financially sound than if I had stayed in programming.

So that's me. Hello.

Dear iTunesstoresupport,

What kind of no answer at all is this reply of yours? You have provided me with exactly zero ‘necessary information’ and you can poke your ‘related concern’ where the sun don’t shine - are you american to give such a vapid, insincere and insulting response?

I would be delighted to able to access the UK iTunes store from my home here in France to buy stuff - as I’ve already stated I am an Englishman and would much prefer to utilise english sites - I do speak, read and write French but find your French store, like all things French, unresponsive, slow and of lesser quality - in short - crap.

This is not an issue with other companies such as amazon or ebay but it would seem the concept of foreign nationals living in countries not of their birth and wishing to access sites in their native tongue is beyond your comprehension. A means to circumvent your companies' shortsightedness in this regard is what I was expecting as a reply, not the ‘get lost’ answer I received below.

I have been an a mac owner since the early nineties, from tower G4 to iMac and MacBooks, eschewing Microsoft products as inferior, both in aesthetic terms and software quality. Rest assured that if your insult below is indicative of the future of Apple, my current MacBook will be the last mac product I shall ever own.

I am not expecting you to resolve this matter now based on your response, will inform my relatives in the UK not to buy and send me any other Apple products, and trust that you feel from my words my utter contempt at your company.

You do realize that we are not even vaguely affiliated with Apple, right?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Hello,

After a sojourn from Apple/Macs of about 30 years, I am returning to the fold. I recently purchased a Mac Pro 5,1, Yosemite, Quad Core Xeon, 2.8 Ghz, 2 x 2TB HDDs, 8GB ECC RAM, and an ATI Radeon 5770 Graphics card to mention a few items. I do a lot of NLE and Audio work including video conversion work.

I addition to my new (to me) Mac, I have a wired and wireless network, several windows desktops, three laptops and an iPad. My connection to the internet is via a DSL line. I gave up on cable a few years ago due to poor reliability.

I have been a Microsoft user since the mid 80s so am familiar with all the vagaries and challenges that has presented me with.

I have been a member of the forum for a short while and have posted a few questions and got some really good help and advice.

I am currently residing in Florida and have lived in several countries and lots of towns and cities as a result of my work. I call it industrial tourism, one get's to travel and visit a lot of places at someone else's expense.

Hello again everyone!

Hopefully I’m remembered here buy a few people. Joined back in 2010, was active for 2 or so years then sort of dropped off of the radar.

A little bit about myself. I’m 18, I live in Canada, and I’m an avid audiophile, gamer, and pilot. I work at a local radio station as an evening show host, as well I use my pilot’s license and airplane to take pictures of the flooding during spring here so we can post it in our news portal.

Been lurking for a few days here, and I’m glad to see some names I still recognize

Hey Im Craig and I have read part of the forum before but this never joined in. I work at an apple related startup and thought it would be smart to join up and stay on top of everything apple, products , user experience etc.

Hi Kevin,

Welcome! I am sure you can get a few more years out of your 2007. You might want to post some more info about your mac like is it an iMac, mac pro or macbook etc.

Again welcome!

Hi everyone!
I'm Cindy. I live in the Bay Area, quite close to Apple HDQ.
I got my first Apple product when I was in High School..... (let's just say it was the 70's)
Yes I am old to the young gang, but young to the old gang!
Been an Apple nut every since.
I am one of those who "always has to have the latest toy" (embarrassed tho)
I have currently a Macbook Air, iPhone 6, iPod, Apple TV, iPad mini, and probably a few little guys I am forgetting...

Hi Cindy!

I too was in high school in the 70's and I plan to stay young - mentally - as long as I live!

I too love my apple toys and prefer the "latest, greatest" but I will tend to keep around what is still working well. My "toys" are listed under my avatar.

Welcome to the forum. There are some very nice people here. Enjoy!
