    Well, I am old enough to be on my own, but I am not, only because of a medical condition I have had all my life... and as of maybe May of 1999 we made a family decision to scrap that laptop. I was, what I call "given" permission to buy my macbook. (It wound up being a pro, because, at the time, it was cheaper than the white macbook.) I had a I-pod before, and I don't have problems with it.... So.... It was the obvious choice.

    (BTW, my condition I have has a history of taking me by surprise, and I don't drive mostly because of it and something else entirely, but kind of related. It's just safer I am still here.)

    :apple:s rock!

    LOL..... I recently found this site. (I don't have to come very much since I can figure out what I am doing.) I would have said this earlier if I found it the day I started to use the internet on my MBP. I am still getting used to things. I am so "crossed over", once I was sitting at my mom and dad's non-mac tower and when I was supposed to click something, my right hand instinsticivly hit went to the top of the desk to "tap" the "trackpad" that wasn't there.

    Know something funny guys, I just realized I said "1999" and not "2009" LOL.

    When the poster who asked why the OP (original post, this time) wasn't posted sooner, that got me thinking.

    It doesn't help to live in total chaos. LOL. :)

    LOL. No. I have a pretty serious medical condition which can decide to wreak havock on my life at a moment's notice. This condition has been "good" to me since early summer of 1999. (I don't want to say too much about it unless I am asked. Let's just say, because of it, I am very sensitive to cold fronts and severe storms. :( )

    Maybe I missed something

    Not to seem rude, but, what was the point of this post? Did I miss something?

    a-m-k is simply expressing his love for apple and his desire to be asked about his strange medical condition

    I understand your passion for Macs. When I first converted to a Mac I was amazed at its simplicity of use. For the past 8 years I've done most of my work documents on a Mac, using a PC only when a comparable Mac-compatible application is not available. (or when playing my Windows games)

    I understand the complexity of living with your condition. Spending more time at home and having restrictions on activities and transportation can be limiting to some people. Additionally, the ability to communicate the joy of appreciating things that others may take for granted is sometimes lost in this medium. People in forums tend to read hundreds if not thousands of missives and respond quickly (sometimes) without thinking through how their responses might be perceived through different eyes.

    To be able to participate in a community of sorts (virtual though it may be) can be liberating when so much of life is about restrictions and being careful. Please enjoy your Mac and the freedom it provides. Revel in the ease of use you experience vs. the limits many owners of older Windows-based systems endure.

    Every day is a blessing. May you and your Mac have many more.

    Cheers,

    Thank you! I would actually say more about what I mean about the condition I have, but I don't want to overwhelm anyone. Though, I would say, living with it isn't ever convienent, and because of it, I don't have the "typical" life of a person my age. (Though, I tried, again, a bit overwhelming to someone who doesn't know me.) I WON'T let it bring me down!

    Thank you. :) :apple:
