Well my family finally made the switch. After countless years of being fed up with the trials and tribulations of a Microsoft operating system, we became mac owners. We made a trip to Chicago today and purchased 3 powerbook G4's. Two of the three were the 17inch model and the third was a 15in. So far we are all really pleased, and setting up the home network for my parents was a breeze!

I am very happy with my new computer and I am glad I finally made the switch. Now hopefully I will have enough motivation to put my photoshop skills to use.

It's good to join a new family!

Make sure you get something called Tigerlaunch. It's great. And WeatherPop. Just look 'em up on Google.

I use Google. It's already in the top of Safari. :p Versiontracker is good if you know you want a certain type of program though.

If I remember correctly WeatherPop isn't free? Get Konfabulator. It comes with a pretty little widget called The Weather. And you don't have to pay for it.

Back on topic... will you adopt me...? 0: )
