I'm typing this from my brand spankin' new 13" Mac. D was right - the 13 is plenty big and the picture quality is really nice. And it's not making any noise. The fan on the old computer was a bit of a wheezer.
I still have a lot to learn, but it's good to be on the internet again. I need to set up an appointment with the Mac people to transfer the old files to the new computer. It's funny, a 70 GB hard drive seemed pretty roomy 6 years ago when I bought the old computer. This one came standard with a 500GB one.
I went to the Native Plant Society meeting tonight. Saw some folks I knew, listened to a good speaker and had a good time.
I received a bunch of old watches that I purchased on eBay. There is something satisfying about taking apart an old watch and seeing the gears inside.
