Mac Mini is at the Doctor

Our Mac Mini is presently at the shop being repaired. It may be the logic board or it may be the hard drive or it may be the Spread of Socialism in the United States of America; we just don't know right now.

I've got photos of the CDSP commencement featuring Kirsten Paisly and Vivian Lam graduating, as well as my friend Nigel Renton recieving his honorary Doctorate, PLUS photos of Miss Bebe at the Fambly Gavering, but I can't post any photos until the Mac Mini returns from the Apple Store.

Also, a big raspberry to the Supreme Court of the State of California for their decision to allow the bigots of California (and Utah and other Mormon-dominated areas who spend a lot of money to further their cause of hate) to keep their stupid proposition on the books. At least IT's (and everyone else who took advantage of the opportunity) marriage is still valid in the eyes of the state.

To quote my daughter Anne (who, at the age of 13 was shocked to learn that Gays couldn't marry): "What a stupid, stking, racist, sexist, homophobic world we live in!"

AND: I HATE WINDOWS!!! It's taken me three attempts to post this pitiful post!

I pray for Mac Mini's healing, Padre. I thought that Macs never broke down.

Yeah, raspberrys to the Cal Supremes, but for Moreno.

Only smart people can use Windows. Just sayin'.

Mac users have better things to do with their time than troubleshoot the OS. There is faulty equipment however. I'm curious to hear what went wrong with the Mini. It is relatively new, isn't it? Is it still under warranty, I hope?

Got our tickets and we're ready to leave town next week!

Wonderful to see you. I didn't get a chance to tell you, I'll be at Nancy's mom's in Monterey all summer, If you get down there while you're still up here, let's connect again.

Can't wait to meet you and the lovely Mona. Are you bringing the pooch?

Mimi, some of us are biplatformal. I use Windows all day at work and Mac at home. Windows was invented to make PCs act more like Macs. Just sayin'. Alas, not all that successfully. Remember when you had to enter everything in DOS commands?

Healing for your Mac, Padre!

Oh, Paul, remember the bumpersticker? "Windows 98 equals Mac 89!"

Hardware is hardware, Mimi. Memory disks spin; dust happens. The third law of thermodynamics applies.

I hope you backed-up regularly, Padre!

BTW, the Mad One upgraded to an iMac last year, I believe. However, entropy still applies.

For memories of days gone by, check out this video of a circa-1964 modem in today's world.

PCs are becoming more like Macs and Macs are becoming more like PCs.

I swing three ways: Windows at work and my home PC, Mac laptop and Ubuntu netbook for on the road.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each.

I See You!
