    Yeah! Rock on!

    I wonder if there will soon be a ban on "assault computers" like we all seem to have as the next logical extension of the Patriot Act.

    When I saw your question I was wondering...... Didn't think you were a Mac person.

    Taking things a step further, I have tried a bunch of browsers, and never found the "perfect" one. They all seem to have thier individual good and bad points. So when I have time I'll try new ones to see if that is goung to be "IT"!

    I run two concurrently Rick - Opera for main and tabbed browsing and IE for unknown site stuff - purely because very occasionally a very code heavy site can crash Opera. IE is fairly robust, tho in other ways a pain!

    Firefox has worked for me - and it's there but - does not agree with me as well as Opera.

    I have a couple of older Macs...my desktop is a G4 APG running at 350 Mhz (no kidding) and it's plenty for what I do on my computer. My laptop is the still fantastic G3 2000 Firewire (aka Pismo) at 500 Mhz.

    The G4 runs OS 9.1 (9.2 is buggy on the computer) and I have Jaguar (10.2) on my Pismo.

    Someday I'll get a Mac Mini and a G5. I'll wait until there are G5'd laptops someday before I consider replacing my Pismo.

    I still use my "brick" PDA on a daily basis too....an Apple Newton Messagepad 2000 upgraded to 2100 specs.

    srfl, what a collection.

    I've got a Pismo, but it's backed up with a dual G5 and a G4 laptop from work. The folks at work gave me a Newton, but after playing with it I turned it back in.

    I still have a Mac IIci up and running, and an a 1984 era 128k Macintosh........ With the molded in team signatures on the inside of the case!

    Fare fewer problems than I have with Win based PC.

    I run 4 different machines.

    My main desktop is the "home" PC that we use for e-mail, internet, and gaming stuff. Pretty much what I use mainly along with the wife and youngin.

    My Server PC is my machine for DL'ng from Limeiwre and from torrents. I keep that machine seperated from this one in case the nasties get to it. If that machine blows up, whoopdie-doo. I offload my files onto another drive, disconnect it, then re-image the machine. Back in buisness in under an hour.

    My Dell laptop is a 9300 series desktop replacement with the Nvidia Go 256mg vid with a 17" Tru-brite cinema display. It also has the oin-board dual-layer DVD/CD-R writer just for kicks. I use that when I'm at the firehouse or for when I just don't feel like sitting at my PC. Flip on the wireless and cruise the net from the couch!

    My last system is basically a testbed for anything I need. I was a network engineer before I was a firefighter so I've never gotten rid of the ideal of testing stuff before putting them on my "live" system. So that PC is just kinda there.

    All run Intels, all plugged into an APC, 5.1 Logitech surround with sub, laser mice, and flat panels. The main system runs a Dell 21" widescreen flat and my other machines share the Samsung Syncmaster 17" flat.

    Hehehe....imagine when I have enough money to bring my gun colledction up to my computer collection standard!!!

    I had one of the first in Maryland, and the second that came into the store where I got it.

    Wasn't it amazing? The system, MacWrite or MacPaint, and room to store files........ ALL on one 400k floppy!!! And then there was the Imagewriter.

    You just gotta love that!!
