I think I'm going to combine my order with the more RAM I've been hankering for... :shifty:

Snow Leopard will change your life.

I figure you'd seen enough snow.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

And this is news ?  :huh:

In the last couple of weeks, I've flashed the firmware on my phone, camera and digital video box; news worthy ? :unsure:

Yes it is.  There are 5-6 Apple users out there, so I'm let them know there's a brand new version of OS X that's being released this week.  :)

This is not a minor bug fix, but rather a whole new version.

ONLY if it had an Apple logo.  Then you have to throw a friggin' parade.

Don't sell it short.  It's a whole new level of being.

BTW, because I love being an Apple-Certified BuzzKill, S' MacBook Pro fell again. 6 inches, and the CD drive is probably shot. I'm absolutely loving that Apple reliability. ;)

Stop dropping your MacBook then.   :huh:

I mean really.  I dropped my POS Dell once and it still worked, but if it hadn't I wouldn't be blaming Dell.  Plus I don't think that Apple ever claimed that its DVD drives were any more or less reliable than any other standard PC component.

I already spent the afternoon yelling at her to be more careful with it. If it was a 6-foot fall, you'd have a point, but not protecting components enough to survive a 6-inch fall is a major design flaw in something that's supposed to be portable. You can get 6 inches of air in a bumpy car ride.
