    I thought the column was good. Not very funny, didn't smile once, but all the points that should be there was there, and I agree with most of them...

    And I've had Safari crash on me enough times that not even this was amusing:
    The only difference, of course, is that Safari never actually took down the rest of my system, and all that really was lost was a number of unread tabs... annoying, but not exactly enough to "let out a blood-curdling scream"... :D

    But, anyhow, it's nice to see another switcher, no matter what the reason is for the switch... ;)

    yeah - sorry 'bout that. I just changed the tag to be "Humor" as this obviously applies there more...

    I miss my Amiga

    Someone mentioned the Amiga. Damn I miss that computer. My Amiga 4000 ran Mac emulation software faster than a real Mac, back in the day. I finally switched to Mac in '97 when C= couldn't run themselves further into the ground.

    Still wish someone would port Faery Tale Adventure. :(

    oh, it doesn't matter. people ignore the humor tag anyways, and then foam at the mouth over something ridiculous...

    Thanks Mitthrawnuruodo - I was looking around, saying "What the hell does this have to do with Macs?" until I saw the lefthand side. ;)

    This article is pretty funny though - but even if he did mean it to be in humor, he never explained WHY he's not getting a Mac.

    Actually, reading this makes me want to order a new Mac. My MacBook Pro is going to be obselete in three weeks!
