So. Annoyed.

So I (under Superman's tutelage) reinstalled Windows on my computer. And carefully backed up everything except my email folders and address book. When will I learn!? Totally my fault and I'm totally annoyed with myself.

I am (again) thinking that perhaps a new computer is in order. Mine will be four years old in a couple of months and has served me well - still serves me well - but I think transferring to a new computer will be easier while the old one still functions... instead of waiting until it completely dies and then learning a new system (assuming I get a Mac) all at once. I especially need to make sure that the finances and banking I do don't slip during the transition, and that they can be done by me on a Mac, before I make the switch.

And I still can't decide if a laptop or desktop is better for me. Or if I should even go with a Mac when, say, a comparable HP laptop would be cheaper. Because I'm not made of money.

  2. That is annoying. yuck. Computers can be so much trouble sometimes. Well I hope it gets figured out soon. I know computers can stress anyone out.... :( I would give you advice about the MAC, etc. but I don't know much about them. I know you want one though... :)

  3. I think laptop will be our next comp as we are rapidly running out of room in our house. Our computer desk is chockablock right now and I think if I don't have the surfaces to clutter then I won't - well thats my theory anyhoo lol!

  4. I love my mac now but it took me a little while to figure out how to use some stuff . Yes, it's pretty simple to use and has lots of cool features but it's still different than what I was used to and I'm slow (I prefer "special"). :) I got Kate's birth announcement today. Gorgeous girl. Also? Quack!

  5. What can I say? You of ALL people will LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mac. Just ask Secret Agent J. I am anxiously awaiting getting a new Mac too. I'm setting up my new website via my new .Mac account. Have you uploaded to Flickr yet?
