Greetings y'all!
 
Yes, I've come to the dark side! After decades of being a Microsoft Goon, I finally got fed up and ordered myself an MBP. I presume I'll be flooding the forum with all sorts of dumb questions soon. Great to meet you folks!

Fixed.

yeah dont worry...we've all asked plenty of dumb questions. a lot of the time using the search function on the top really helps.

I'm wondering if it has anything to do w/ his profession/major.

Maybe Business Communications?

MCP is a title for a Microsoft Certified something... (I think it has something to do w/ being SQL certified).

Anyone else w/ ideas? :D

Hehehe! It's a response to all the pretentious twaddle that was so prevalent on Usenet (Anyone remember Usenet? Anyone?) in the '90s:

B.Comm (my actual degree! Bachelor of Commerce)
MCP (okay, this one's real too. I am indeed a Microsoft Certified Professional. But I admitted up front I was an MS Goon :ninja: )
MX5 (I own a Miata)
PADI (added this after getting my diving certification)
PDQ (pretty darn quick. I used to be able to run really fast! I should probably take this out now.)
FEB(tm) (Fellowship of Elitist B*stards (trademark) - and, no, you can't join. After all we're elitist and we're B*stards! ;) )

And the "No Relation To Julia" is in there because I'm so very tired of every rental car agent and hotel clerk I meet asking me "So how's your sister?" when they see my name. :)

Well, do you have a sister? Just kidding.

Welcome to Macworld... er .. I mean, the Mac world (i should stop looking at my on User Pic so much).

Can't wait for those "dumb" questions.

Jabjabs 03-29-2006 10:36 AM

Remember, there is no such thing as a dumb question, only dumb answers. Lucky very few dumb answers come from here.

Welcome aboard, and I think you will find you have switch from the dark side not to it. ;)

I really like this forum's attitude in general... I've tried others and ... no. Hehe
