    As the Jedi Master of Intel for the DGVPG, I hereby call upon mcrain to pay his MacRumors membership tax. It is a small amount of funds, and with your wifes recent move, can probably be claimed as a write off. It is your time. Seize the moment mcrain. We await you.

    Will the taxman cometh?

    He'll be back, don't worry.

    I'm sure a few posting here will keep it high enough, and we could pm him about the link. Only one person do it though. B2TM, why don't you go ahead this time.

    Oh, I got so excited, and clicked on this thread, and boom, to my surprise, I'm being pushed to support macrumors.

    Well, I did it. Arn is one of my heros along with all you others who chip in so much, how can I not support.

    You can't say I don't pay my taxes!

    It all depends, you can email arn the confirmation and he'll do it as soon as he can.

    BTW, congrats on joining up - good to have you on board...:D

    They should e-mai you one. Also, you can call their customer support and they will send you one. I had to do the same. it was really quick, and painless.

    he he.... good on you mcrain. I believe you might just be the first demi-god who doesn't actually own a mac. Ha! Good to see you got your priorities right (MR first, then apple.....).

    You'll love it. People want to taunt you, just because you're in on stuff they're not :p

    Seriously though, well done. :)

    it kind of reminds u of when u were a kid...kids being mean to each other just because some didn't have the cool toys...or in later years when u are a teen & don't have the cool clothes...

    not that I was ever that way... :rolleyes:

    damn it feels good to have grown up... :D

    Some people just never grow up..... Jealousy is one of the biggest causes of trouble.

    I will admit though, seeing people on the boards with a newer tibook than me..... :D :D

    Well, I went with a new motorcycle, truck AND new laptop all this year. I will have the Harley for about 15+ years, the truck for about 10, and the 800 TiBook for as long as it lives, or does as I demand it.

    After putting in a 20k basement bathroom, I'm not going to be getting a new machine any time soon. But the day will come, mark my words, when I get a new G5 (or what ever) sometime in 03 that will kick butt. I can't wait, but I also know I want to wait till I can get a machine that will be a order of magnitude faster than my 450MHz G4 that I have now. A Dual 1GHz is only going to be about 4x as fast. The new ones coming out in July (I hope) should be even faster and with the newer memory and bus could be about 6-8x. That's why I think 2003 I'll see something in excess of 10x which would help justify dropping 10k on a machine. And by then, my current system will have been with me for more than 4 years, which is pretty damn good....
