Re: Mac or Microsoft?

Why is it that when some decry the cost of a Mac, they fail to include the cost of operation. I've never needed a new sound card, virus subscription, etc. I don't think that makes the costs of Mac v PC equal, but it makes them much closer than the figures some like to bandy about. Especially over t...

Ah, wrong. There are 32 and 64 bit versions of CS4. Uh, no. There is no 64-bit support on OSX. we have a misunderstanding here CS4, for example, only supports 64-bit on Windows. what i guess you meant is "there is only 64-bit support on Windows for CS4, and Macs only support 32bit". but, ...

If it's really hot and you can't sleep, believe it or not, put on damp socks and hang your feet outside the blankets. You'll feel cooler. yeah... similarly, wet a towel and lay it over yourself when trying to sleep. not that we need that here in Britain at the moment. i think our summer has seen mo...

So? The Jews have been there for thousands of years, as have other residents. Don't even try to pretend they haven't been. Just because you choose to ignore any and all facts that do not back up your pet theory doesn't invalidate them. It does, on the other hand, tend to invalidate any point you ar...
