if one more person congratulates me for making the switch to mac and tells me how much more stable they are, he or she better run, and quickly.
since owning a mac, i have:
learned to miss right click
said goodbye to some of my favorite games
but then discovered virtual pc
cursed getting my win2k laptop on the airport
still cursing

but at the top of the shit list, i have learned that kernels panic.....and mine does, A LOT. i mean 4 or five times a day. last night, i had to turn it on at least 15 times before it finally booted up without telling me i had to hold my freaking power button down. this morning i am terrified to turn it off because i have some important documents and a presentation on it i need for today. what the hell??

VMWare can be a nice thing, but it sops up lots of RAM. It works very well though depending on what you need to do. What kind of panicing is the kernel doing (just curious).

I won't congratulate you (although it'd be neat to see you try and chase me down where I am right now, lol), but I will say that I'd thought about a eMac for the house.

Don't worry... I won't congratulate you either, but as a long time Mac user I do usually nudge people to the Apple Way. I also use PC's, mainly at work, so I realize that both platforms have their good and bad sides.

Are you getting the kernal panic on your Mac? It really sounds like something is wrong. If it is a new Mac, either take it to an Apple store (if you are fortunate enough to have one around) or get on the horn with Apple Tech support. I fear you either have to reinstall the system, or there is a hardware problem, probably the motherboard. Kernal panics should not be a reoccurring part of your Mac experience. I've only gotten one in the last 6 months.

I have a Mac, and I use a programmable two-button mouse that right-clicks just fine. They're available, they're not hard to find.

Kernel panics...next time it happens, call Apple Support, and leave the kernel panic information up on your screen (or take a photo of it, or transcribe it) because it should be useful in helping them to figure out what the problem is.

You might be having a major software conflict issue, OR you have damaged hardware. Which version of OS X are you using?

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
