Well, heck! Thank y’all so much! I really loved making that sweater, loved every moment of the process. I fully plan on doing a little post on How I Done That, but maybe tomorrow? Today, I’m busy setting up my new computer. Lala got to me. Yep, she did. My old old old laptop, which didn’t even support my iShuffle because the USB port was so old and slow, has been a pain in the ass for a while, not typing the M key unless it was punched four or five times, and now it’s not liking the J or U, either. And it’s been freezing and crashing for a while now, and I finally got tired of not being able to run more than two programs at a time. I used to open a program and knit a couple of rows while it went kachunk kachunk kachunk and thought about how much work it was opening a Word document for me. It begrudged every moment of it.
But as of last night, I’m running an Apple PowerBook G4, 12 inch, lots of things in it. I’d tell you, but I’ve already forgotten. 512mb something, and 60 gig something else. I know that the 512 part is like the stuff on top of your desk, useful and immediately to hand, and the 60 gig is like the stuff in your filing cabinets – you can still use it, but it takes longer to go reaching for it. And it’s cute! Did I mention how cute it is? And little? Oh, oh, oh.
I’m actually smarter about computers than that sounds. Not like Lala, who knows everything about Macs (helloooo, built-in tech support), but I can get around. But it takes a while, doesn’t it? I’m moving pics over and cleaning out my old computer, making sure I have the old important stuff carefully archived on my external hard drive, my Yahoo briefcase, AND the new computer.
Is it my imagination, or does iTunes sound better from a Mac? Can that be? They’re the same files played on the same speakers, just moved over (and it was so EASY), but they sound better, I swear they do.
