musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

oh the irony...

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Yesterday I ordered my MacBook - yes I'm finally making the switch from PC to Mac! So how ironic it was when my PC blew up on me this morning (artistic license in the use of dramatic language - what actually happened was that I switched it on and heard a 'bang' then it was dead!) All very humorous you might think except for the fact that I hadn't got round to doing a back up of emails and data - doh! Just waiting now for a techie to arrive to (hopefully) retrieve the hard drive! Please somebody reassure me that I won't have these problems with a Mac!!

One should never say never... but I had no problems with my Powerbook... and TBH I'd love to update it (get a Macbook pro) but 2 years in and it is still as good as it was when I bought it, so I just can't justify the money! My previous PC's (HP's and Toshibas) however were starting to get delicate by their second birthday!

Congratulations on joining the ranks of Mac users.
I love mine and have never had any major probs, despite watching over PC users with puzzlement as they struggle to get their data projectors talking to thier machines. But so saying, always back up anyway. Before the mac we used Linux machines, and our first was so dependable that we didnt back things up as often as we should and then there was a physical hard disc crash (the heads caved into the drive) and we lost shedloads of data.
