It's My Birthday

I got my package (mentioned in a post below). It arrived at work no.1 on Thursday but I had to leave it there until after work no.3 Friday because I was basically working right through... And then it was so big I couldn't fit it into the car (bloody convertibles!) but managed to squeeze it in, levitating on the front seat/dashboard and obscuring my view of the road. I don't think I ran over anyone on the way home. 

So it gets home - but I'm starving and the pizza I've picked up with the levitating package in the car has precedence. The Frenchman can't keep his hands off it though, and we break through the box, the multiple layers of plastic wrap (elegant though it is) and place my new imac on the lounge room table. 

It comes to life and looks beautiful. We both smile. It asks for a photograph and we're surprised by the huge flash it creates as it immortalizes us on the big BIG screen. I try to find the picture to paste here - but I'm a little lost and when I find it, it is so small... need to learn more about the settings... I've managed to connect it to my pc and as I type the files are downloading from its hard drive. Easy. The more I use it the more fun it is and I'm just getting started. 

And now I'm exhausted - I didn't sleep much at work last night and I have a big day ahead. I'm excited by it all already, exhausted, excited, and so in need of sleep. I'm back to the apple orchard. It feels like home.

the outlook - entourage thing - difficult - if you use gmail - use imap feature, prob easiest for multiple computer access/synchrony. O/w, outlook to thunderbird (?i think that's what it's called, the mozilla email prog) then to entourage. A bit of a hassle.

speeding bullett, alfred, jessica: thank you thank you thank you

angus: I transferred files to thunderbird (which I downloaded) then added .mbox to the thunderbird mailbox files and imported them - It worked, and despite how it sounds wasn't too hard. (oh and decided to use the mac mail software which is working pretty well so far.) Thanks.
