For Paul

He and his computer are both under the weather; I thought he could do with some cheering up. Perhaps we all can.

Paying attention does make one cynical, I do admit.

You didn't quite make it in time. The MacBook is in hospital for its brain transplant. But, for the moment anyway, my dicey Dell desktop is working. Which means I won't be totally isolated. Should get my baby back by Monday at the lates.

Thanks for the artful humor.

Anytime. :-)

Glad you have something to tide you over.

And for anyone visiting here, my Mac is home and I have finished re-installing half a dozen applications, downloading updates, acquiring media players, and transferring an incredible quantity of documents from the backup device. I seem to be up and running again. And still taking notes....

Well, at least you're done in less than a full day's time. Now, if you were re-installing on a PC we all know what your day would go to ;-) (Have been a PC user since IBM started shipping out of Boca Raton + 6 months)

Kate, (Hi, while we're at it!)

For years I was all Mac. Had three desktops in succession (starting with that first cute little portable job) and one laptop. Then, at some point, so I could easily trade files with the church, I went over to the dark side. Went through a succession of those (and a laptop that died just over a year ago). I have come home again. As I read of the woes of Vista I am doubly glad I did not buy another PC.

That I could take my MacBook in mid day and receive it back with a new hard drive by late afternoon, then get my apps re-installed and my myriads (literally) of documents reloaded all before bedtime... well, it makes one glad to be a Mac person once more. If I had a PC again I would probably have slashed my wrists ere this.
