This One's for Cathy

Today I get my new computer! At least I hope it's today. I've been tracking it and it's now in Cincy so I expect I'll get it today. It's weird how fast a computer can go out of date. The one I have just simply will not handle all of the photo/video stuff I need to do for Pine Ridge.

I saw this ad for Apple Computers that was done back in 1983 with a struggling actor named Kevin Costner. I though Cathy might like it. Oh, I forgot, Cathy probably can't watch a video on the computer. Oh well.... sorry to torture you sweetie.

Wow, computers have come a long way.

And no Josh, if you're reading, I'm not getting a Mac. I'd like to but simply can't afford to switch over. Just getting a new Dell busted my bank.

shame shame shame.
The unfortunate truth is that no one can afford NOT to buy a mac. The amount of time, stress and energy, as well as future upgrades that you will waste on a windows computer will far outweigh the original purchase price. Meanwhile I do find it odd that a dell computer of equivalence would cost less than a mac.

If you would have only asked, I (with apple) could have saved you.

(and there's a tear there as well)

"I Second That Emotion"(for the most part)

This as I type on my old eMac and as I mourn my iBook that I think died last night.


PS to Josh-If only we had known maybe we could have done an intervention. Friends Don't Let Friends Buy Dells.

oh that video is too funny! That little plastic brick of a mouse, and Costner back when his head would still fit through normal doorways. Congrats on a new computer. Enjoy your Mac. I vaguely remember owning a Mac back in the old days. I learned how to use a computer on an original Mac.

Josh and Tim - if it makes you feel any better I do have the Apple "Think Different" logo set as my desktop background. What can I say, it's a PC that wants to be an Apple. I do love this thing though ...it's so fast!
