I'm not a writer by any means, so bear with me... I'll be as brief as I can... Around 1991, I became Interested in computers. I started taking some non-credit courses at the local community college (PCs, Windows).. I wanted to learn everything I could about computers. After several courses, I learned that I could use computers for FREE at the local library... so, one saturday, I went to the library.... with a floppy disk in hand.... to save my work on... (I did know that much about them. I had to save my work). I walked into the library, and the staff pointed out where they were, so I walked over towards them.... they had 2-3 windows PCs there.... like I used in school.... However, they had another one that "caught" my eye.... It was a little thing.... small black/white screen, 9" in diameter.... all in one.... the entire thing was one piece. I thought that was sort of cool... (I later learned it was a Macintosh SE30).... It had Word 4.0 on it... and a few kids games..... I didnt really know much about what I was doing... I was using Word to create a database of names and phone numbers! Sort of funny today when I think back about this. I was typing names and numbers in a document, and saving to the floppy disk. after 1/2 hour on this computer, I was hooked..... I spent several more saturdays coming back to this thing... creating my "database"... But I quickly discovered that "I had to have a Mac of my own". so I bought my first one... and the rest as they say is History.. It's almost 2003, and 4 Mac models later, many upgrades, and OS versions from System 7 to Jaguar 10.2.3, I'm STILL using Mac's! I would NOT have it any other way..
