fat pony like thunder

consumer frenzy

MY iBOOK HAS ARRIVED!

I'm still setting it up (yes, I have two computers on at once, the madness), but it's so pretty, and light, and gorgeous. Hurrah!

What am I writing this on? Why, my new baby iBook, that's what!

It's a little hard to get used to - OSX is very different from OS9, which is what we had in my antiquated old office, but! So cute! So fun! And - and I know I keep saying this - so bloody light. It weighs about half of what my PC laptop weighs. I love it!

pretty on the inside

Hmmm, my iBook is very pretty and all, but it's taking a bit of getting used to. I prefer the old Mac OS! I'm finding it quite hard to use. And for some reason, the .Mac thing is demanding my credit card details! I don't like this so much.....

oh, bollocks

Perhaps I should have swore (sweared?) on my phone post, to give you the full majesty of my beautiful voice. I'm certainly swearing now, with physical pain and emotional crankiness. So now you know what I sound like, just imagine me going "oh, fucking hell", throughout this post.

Does anyone know if OS X has a "work offline" option? When I was at work, this wasn't an option, because we had a broadband connection, but at home on my dial up, I've always used my browser history to read long articles. But now it won't let me! There doesn't seem to be a work offline option in Safari at all, and even Internet Explorer, which has one, doesn't seem to bother with it - when I click on something in my History, or click the back button on the browser, it just tries to go online! Any ideas, Mac genii?

In other news, I was just sitting on the bottom of the stairs talking on the phone (which is in the hall, next to the stairs) and when I got up I bashed the small of my back against the very pointy end of the bannisters. As there is virtually no cushioning fat there, it was like hitting my funny bone - some of the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life. It still hurts like hell. Ow. Ow.

Ow.

waaaah!

Okay, you Mac folk (especially blue monday) have been very helpful, and I have another question - do Macs still use the hold-down-the-mouse thing for what in PCs are right click function? Because I tried to save a picture online for making wallpaper, and even though I held it down, as I used to with my work Mac, no options appeared! Oh, woe is me.
