I’m buying a Mac

It isn’t without a bit of fear and trepidation that I announce this to the world but I’m picking up a used Mac.  Increasingly I find myself doing tech support on these machines and I’m pretty much useless on them.  The best way to learn one is to own one.  A friend I know is going to sell me an older Intel macbook for a really good price. 

Anybody know where I can pick up a Dell sticker to cover up the symbol of original sin on the back?

    Ah our prayers have finally been answered! And there was much rejoicing in Cupertino. 🙂

    Congrats man, as they say, once you go Mac, you’ll never go back!

    It’s interesting that at one time I loved Macs, but always got stuck with a PC that I hated. Here I am 18 years on now using a PC and windows out of choice and disliking Macs. A curious reversal.

    dude – if you are the guy that wrote this:

    … that is the most profound, clear, coherent, meaningful, pointed, timely, accurate observation of Church life, today — & a zillion Christian hearts are crying that lament – most unaware.

    I just came across it because a friend read it & passed it along. I read it … saw the date … heard the wind whispering across your site (based on other dates, etc) … & felt my elation just evaporate. Has that focus just been dropped? – td

    Well well well, wish I was closer as I just got mine last week. We could figure out stuff together.

    oh and heads up, the delete key is actually a backspace key. Go figure.

    Watch out, I’m thinking about joining the Draft Paul Martin movement. We don’t need Darryl’s MP becoming PM.

    I’m with you on that one, LT.
