    WhatMac.jpg I had a co-worker come in to the office, and ask if I would work on his personal MacBook Air. He said it was having trouble and would blue-screen on him quite often. I told him that Mac's dont BSOD, unless someone had it set up running bootcamp and booting directly in to Windows. He swore it was running OS X, so I said Okay, I'll take a look. What he brought me is the machine on the left. He told me that his must be a "first gen" when I showed him a genuine Air.

    I had someone call me during the summer because they were at a workshop and couldn't connect to the school system's network. I asked if it was a personal or a school computer and was assured that it was a school Mac. I thought that was odd, cause the system is 99% Windows. So I started walking through connect procedures. Long story short, it was a personally owned PC. How do people not know that?

    And why does everyone not know CTL-C and CTL-V?

    OK, I'll bite... What is Ctl-C and Ctl-V? I have never used those shortcuts for anything, IIRC.
    Or, did you mean Cmd-C and Cmd-V :D

    Incredible :D
    Ctrl-C is a quick way to rename a file in icon view, you actually didn't know? ;)

    Nope, never have seen that, and have never used it, at least in OS X
    And, that means you have to press two keys, so not so much of a shortcut, when you only need to press return on a selected file or folder to rename. :D

    But, with pressing Return, you don't get that satisfying system alert sound :D fair enough though :)

    No. I don't. You don't know them unless someone teaches them to you, or shows them to you.

    Some of us came to computing relatively late - I was already a college teacher of several years before I used my first computer. Therefore, I didn't grow up with this stuff, and am essentially self-taught, as I never learned, or was never taught a lot of this stuff.

    Of course. None of this is self-evident; unless you are taught it, or someone takes the time and trouble to show it to you, you are not going to know it.

    I never learned those commands, either.

    No.

    Neither did I.

    I should have prefaced my remarks with some additional background. The cut/copy/paste came from a meeting I attended on Tuesday with other teachers who have supposedly trained enough to offer online courses to other teachers. Watching some of them navigate through their own courses to make edits was painful.

    Eh? What's that? I thought everyone used CP or COPY (fer those who use MS-DOS/VAX-VMS).:oops:

    cp /home/docs/<filename.ext> /home/public/<filename.ext>
    .

    I gotta give that cmd-c/cmd-v stuff a try.;)
