TPC, I thought I remembered you used to like bashing Macintosh for no specified reason. Do you remember why?

I got infected by a weak one, which was a bit tricky. i almost got infected by a very powerful one as well.

An OS's security doesn't mean much if the user is an idiot, in that case the problem exists on other side of the keyboard.

You're right, I did. Because they couldn't play video games well or handle the gaming conditions that I demanded. Furthermore, the macs of old I had no love for. Wasn't interested in the iBook. iMac looks clunky. G5's too damn expensive.

If you're going to play video games, get a PC. I needed a laptop for school because when I'm taking notes in class, I had the hardest time trying to keep up with writing down the prof's notes and trying to understand what he was saying. I guess you can say I dropped $1400 because I'm really bad at note taking.

Computer labs at the University are almost always packed, but they have open wireless ports virtually everywhere.

Bottom line? Your computer should fit your needs, so pick the one that works best for you.

That's what you get for using the default msn client, which is well-known to be extremely vulnerable.

No, that's what you get for being an idiot. The one he's referring to is a bot that hijacks the MSN client and send a link to all contacts that the person receiving has to download.

TPC, you are going to get so much pie with the Mac girls in college class.

Damn straight. Already picked up two phone numbers the other day from chicks who needed help on their macs.

Of course I'm not qualified to help, BUUUUTTT...

You'd be surprised how often 'help for macs' translates into 'OMG WHERE IS TEH START MENU??'
