On Apple or Orange:

No pictures, No contest today.

Rupert the computer is home but still unwell. After having some things I can’t explain done to him while at the ‘computer hospital’ he works, but he no longer plays well on the internet. In essence, I can’t get onto blogger with him any longer. No blogger, no blog with pictures. So I am back on the older slower computer (named Clayton) that doesn’t deal well with pictures. And Rupert is on juice and light snacks while he lazes around playing games.

Mountain Man is not happy at the expense and I am in a tizzy. I can live with Rupert if he doesn’t do anything but play games and is a glorified typewriter. I have done that before for years before we joined the internet. But my blog will suffer if I can no longer do things like have pictures or other things here on my blog by using the older computer to reach the internet.

I will start to save up for a new computer if Rupert can‘t be fixed, but I do feel I the need for some more input on computers before I put any more money down on these fiendish friends.

I know nothing about Macks/Apples and would like anyone who knows both systems to let me know the difference. In fact the only thing I’ve heard many years ago was an off hand comment someone made, that macks don’t do games well. It takes me some time to learn a new system with my brain hitting the restart button on a fairly regular basis. And I don’t want to waste money on something I might not be able to use.

I found myself thinking about giving up the blogs, much as I don’t want to. But I don’t want to have a boring blog that no one wants to read either. I put a lot of time and thought into my blogs in trying to keep them interesting.

So, I’m looking for a solution. If any of you could help, I thank you in advance.

Tomorrow is Silly Day the Thirteenth.



I have only ever had Macs. I love the operating system, ease of use, the fact that viruses and worms don't bother it. Apple tech support is great.

About games, I don't know. Sweetie plays a little, but I am not into them.

While Macs are pricey, to me they are worth every cent.

I've always used a PC at work, and owned a Mac at home. Ditto everything Fuzzareally says.

I'm an intuitive person, and if something goes awry with the PC, I have to call for help. With the Mac, I've always been able to figure it out myself.

Not to mention that I've owned a total of 3 Macs since 1990. Spouse has gone through 4 PCs in just 8 yrs. So I figure I get over 6 years out of a single one...and (importantly) each time I've gotten a new one not because it died but because eventually the world outpaced the system.

I've just ordered a new Mac that should be coming this week. The one I have now still works fine but the OS won't support the newest versions of FlashPlayer and stuff anymore (it's from 2003). I've never gotten a virus, had a crash, lost a file...anything. Only problem I ever had was I had to replace the keyboard once.

If there's anything at all you want to ask me--bearing in mind that I'm not the most puter-savvy but I have been using both for a long time--ask away. (sohopixieATyahooDOTcom)
