Despite the ‘sirens’ call to buy a Mac from the cute guy in the commercial, I went with the frumpy PC guy who always seems to suffer from all that ails Microsoft PC‘s.
Like a little kid with a new toy, I ran home and started ripping into the package. In minutes I had my old computer off of my desk and the new one installed, every cable rerouted and plugged in. With the push of the power button, like some movie special effect, sparks and smoke poured out of the sleek new black computer. What did I expect? First of all, it was made in China, second, it was me, and nothing is ever ‘easy’ for me. You know that ‘Staples’ easy button? If it was in my house it would probably explode. So here I am more than thirty six hours later, and I think I finally have everything up and running. I had to go back and exchange the computer, then transfer all of my important files over from the old computer using, the anything but easy, ‘Belkin Easy Transfer Cable’ that I had to buy. But it was all worth it, because one of the new toys Mark got me for Christmas was a tiny little video recorder, and now with my new computer I can share my first videos of our Christmas morning with all of my friends and family.
So if you have the time here is ‘Yappy Mark’ and ‘Russell’s Gift’.
