Scattered Showers...of Posts

Well, I'm spending the next few weeks in Oregon with my mother. I'm there now, actually, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Cool and sunny and all West-Coasty. So my posts will be sporadic, more so than usual. I'm using my mother's MacBook Pro since I can't seem to connect on the Internet with my Dell. No idea why, since another PC links fine and I can see other networks in this area. In any event, no Internet is giving me fits. I think I'm addicted to it, sad to say. So unless I can steal some time on Mom's Mac, I won't be able to post much.

And may I say how easy this Mac is to use, and how quickly it boots up. It even has a Word program... Hmm. I am due for a new computer before mine at home craps out. I've been waffling from PC to Mac, but I'm not sure. Oh well, more to ponder later.

Happy Monday from sunny Bend, Oregon!

I have had Macs for the past 10 years and I wouldn't trade them for a PC. They are much more reliable and have fewer problems than a PC. Everything works so well together. They also stay current longer than a PC.

Oh, by the way I saw on ELC that Namesake will be out July 21st, can't wait!

Thanks for the update on Namesake, Tina! My editor told me she'd let me know soon, but I think the EC webmaster beat her to it!

I'm still dithering between Mac and PC. I love this Mac, but the small functions I'm familiar with on my PC aren't here, and it's frustrating. Plus, Macs are more expensive, and everything at home is PC. So I'm not sure how I'd be able to use my Mac with the other devices we have at home. Time for research...

Namesake was put up on ELC sometime between yesterday afternoon and this morning.

Most devices are made for both Mac and PC (I have only found a few things that weren't compatible). Macs can be expensive depending on how much fire power you need. I think the cheapest Notebook is the Mac Air which starts at around $1500.
