    And it makes me feel like half a man, lol. Anyway, im uber poor, cant afford a new computer, thats why i still have my 200Mhz dinosaur, *sigh*. Man, when I get a job and make loads of money, im gonna buy myself a ton of Macs. I just love macs.

    Mac Minis are the cheap. Sell the 200MHz and get.. 1/10th of a mini? :)
    When you get your mac, you'll appreciate it that much more, after trodding through the 200 MHZ machine. :)

    "Wait.. you mean it's not supposed to take 20 minutes to boot? WOW!"
    :p

    or you could just win one, like I did... *tooting own horn* hahahaha

    I was really poor when I bought my first Mac. You know what I did? I financed it. Find a store like Microcenter or something similar and charge it! I was so poor I was only barely payng rent and bills and I made it happen. You can too! :) And hey- at least you have computer now. That one was my first ever.

    Well, it doesnt take 20 minutes to boot, simply because I fresh install Win98SE every 6 months, have spyware and virus apps, and all that stuff. But man oh man I hate windows. Its a huge pain in the ass, and even if I cant switch to Mac right away, im definitly switching to Gentoo Linux.

    well, i must say that being alive is more important that getting a mac; although some may argue, what's the point of living if you don't have a mac. I'm not that much of a fanatic...
