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.

Seriously though, welcome to MacForums, glad to see more switchers. If you have any questions about the forums, feel free to ask.

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

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?

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.

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.
