Got it!

Okay, it's weird, I apparently have to type in posts to Edit HTML, rather than compose, but who cares? I can actually see blogger blogs in paragraph blocks, rather than one word at a time running down the side of the screen. Life is good for the Mac OS 9 user.

The boyfriend hates the Mac. I don't know why. Rosie (the computer is Rosie Robotnik, she's a red IMac) has never done anything to him. I will admit though that I have had this computer--a Christmas present about six years ago--for about six years, and although she runs fine, it's getting harder to find software and updates that work. Anyway, the boyfriend is a manic PC user, one of these people who thinks a single-button mouse is a personal affront. At least he's not as insane as some of the nuts I've met online, who seem to feel that using a Mac is an offense that entitles them to abuse you in language I normally reserve for the president of the United States. It's pretty extreme out there. And until recently I was an AOL user as well. Double whammy.

Anyway, we're up and running, and I think I can actually do pictures and hyperlink again.

I'm still using a sexy, gorgeous G3 powerbook with 9.1 OS (the Lombard). To update to OS X I'd have to buy more memory etc etc and all that implies and I'm not exactly rolling in dough.

My best friend has a graphite iMac that is still awesome after all these years, powered up to OS X level with all the bells and whistles.

They are a dream to drive.

I love my little Mac jalopy. PCs are the Studebakers of the comp world, IMO.

Oh, did I mention? Macs rule! I love hearing from other Mac owners- it's Mac porno to my ears.

It's nice to know I'm not alone.

Oh wait, I should update my remarks- PCs are the PINTOS of the comp world.

(Of course, I had to look up the word.
Now I can add it to my growing vocabulary. Thanks!)
