Apparently? I used the word "crap" five times, "crack" five times, and the word "pain" once.

For crying out loud! I used to use a few WTF in that exact abbreviated format. But everybody knows I'm all "Chicken Biskets and Bleeps" now.

sigggggghhh.... I know, I know. I promised road trip pics. It's just I got a techie problem going on that I am trying to figure out.

I finally got my new Lap Top. You know, the one that was supposed to be my "every gift for the year" present? (ie: Valentines, Anniversary, Mother's Day, Birthday, Christmas). That we were going to fund with our GW check so we could help out in stimulating the economy.

I wanted to upload all the road trip pics via my new Baby for all the cool stuff she can do with them.

I went Mac. Never had a Mac, never really liked them because they intimidate the fool out of me. Well? Got me a Mac Attack and this baby is a beauty! Even for a PC user I can kinda' find my way around...only problem? No gottie internet to connect to her?

That is just UN-acceptable. It is truly a disrespect to my new Baby to not be able to access the internet. I tried the router thingie, I tried the [cool] Mac Airport Express thingie, I tried actually plugging it into the ethernet cable [which works for my PC]....Nope. No internet.

CHICKEN BISKETS! BLEEEEEP!! And, for the sake of my "red rating" I will also add in an additional "crap!" "crack!" and "pain" in the @$$!

I will say on a side note that Mac actually has really cool gadgets for it's equipment. Everything is neat, self contained, self retracting, and so forth. And, everything I have [so far] is white!!! Love me some white! Cuz' it always looks clean!

DH: "Don't get white? It'll get dirty!"

ME: "NOT if you WASH your hands before using it." (Seriously Honey? This is ME you are talking to, LOL!)

Besides, to get it in slick black? $200.00 more! DH said he would have paid for it. "I"got me some software and a cool wireless mouse instead -- money spent way better than on a Black Mac.

So, Happy Friday! And, I'll be Back! [Hopefully] on my Mac!

I got a PG rating myself. I was going for the G, but apparently you can't "crack up" over any jokes and still get a G. Oh, and the donkey reference didn't help, either. Go figure.

Smart to get yourself a color that makes you happy, but a Mac? Go read yourself some Mrs. G on that subject:

If nothing else, she will make you laugh!
Still, I am sorry you can't make the internet work with your Mac.

Click on the "connect to the internet" and you should be able to find what you need.

When I got my USB wireless adapter I had to click on the little Apple and then System whatever and actually tell the computer to recognize the new hardware. Then it worked perfectly!

How far away from the Apple Store are you? They have oodles and oodles of classes at good prices where they teach people how to use their Macs/iPods/iPhones etc. They're probably worth it.

Thanks jay for the input. FYI? I live in Farmville. There isn't an Apple store within three to four hours -- one way. ;-(

If I can just get this interet glitch fixed then I'll be up and running!

Congrats! I think we're going to have to bite the bullet and get a Mac laptop one of these days. Hopefully soon!

I got an R for saying crap and death. I have said so much worse on my blog. Congrats on the new toy!

Welcome to the collective. :)

The first computer I ever used was an Apple, and my first real work computer was a Mac. I much prefer a Mac as a computer, but I PC for integration into the business world. Now a days with a Mac running windows we can have the best of both worlds.

I love my iMac G5. (but I just replaced my laptop at home with a Dell) Shhhh.

I hope you get the wireless worked out. IF you need help email me.

gman Howdy! And, thanks for the comment and offer to help. Boy, you Mackies are a very helpful crew!

I might be emailing y'all with [stupid] novice questions about little stuff -- cuz', I might be a little lazy about the manual some times!
