I for one, welcome our totally not common sense oil sucking Taiwanese overlords. A bit more here. but I couldn't find a whole lot of really technical stuff on the seagoing monster.
I did this for an older relative, got her a Mac Mini. It was relatively cheap, as she could keep using her old monitor, keyboard, mouse and printer.
Yes, her incidence of problems has gone way, way down, and her experience of "things are fine" has gone way, way up.
But the best part?
When she does have a problem and calls me? I can say, "Sorry, I don't know anything about Macs. Can't help."
I've also been berated for leaving the toilet seat in the wrong configuration.
I've never understood why women want the seat left down. If you think about it, it's in their best interest to put the seat down when they go into the toilet and put it back up when they're done. That way, they don't run the risk of falling in due to sitting while the seat is up and they don't have to worry about us guys getting the seat wet since it won't get wet in the raised position.
Unfortunately, I've found that even the most logical female will refuse to follow this logic...
A computer without COBOL and Fortran is like a piece of chocolate cake without ketchup and mustard.
