Changed my Religion - Mac is back!

Just once too often I have looked into the abyss that is the 'blue screen of death'! My PC is on borrowed time as it perches precariously on the edge of my desk; its former position in the middle of my desk now occupied by an iMac. As soon as I can get all my 'stuff' transferred I will gently nudge the PC over the edge!Funnily enough I started my computing life on a Mac Classic – the original one box machine. It was a joint purchase with Nicola (My wife), made I think before we were even engaged! So in a sense our relationship was sealed by an Apple - Sounds quite Biblical :-) I should never have apostasized to the wicked empire of Windows but the arrival of the hames that is Vista woke me up from my Microsoft induced stupor and I saw the light! Just goes to show it is never to late to be converted to the Truth! ;-) I am now working on Nicola and pray that she too can be saved! ;-)Incidentally for all fellow nerds, when I was transferring data from the PC to the Mac via ethernet I noticed that the icon the Mac uses to represent the PC is a PC monitor displaying the "blue screen of death" - I love the humour. This apparently was a recent addition with the Leopard OS. The PC is proving reluctant to give up some of my critical data in an intellgible form but I think I now have it beat - I think it knows that this is all that stands between it and the local recycling centre! ;-)

So friends - If I happen to bump into you in blogland or even reality and I ask you: "Are you saved?" you know what you need to do! Repent and be Mactized!

I'm still praying for conversion! A laptop of any kind will do me. When I get it I'll lapdance round the kitchen. ;)

Now that is a thought :-) Make sure you get some pictures of this mind-boggling event! ;-)

Suggestion for your old PC: turn it into an entertainment centre. Keep your music and movies on it. Connect it into your amp and TV. Use it as a source.

Yes -just might do that - I do have an Apple TV which pulls all the itunes content off the PC (and now Mac) but it will not pull down non itunes material.

The PC would only be a source. The telly should be able to see the signal.
