Time for a Mac

So, I’m uploading files to a client’s blog, ftp open in one window, file explorer in the other. File Explorer locks up. Why? Because it can’t find the shared folder on another PC – even though I’m not accessing that  folder. Why it needs to find that folder, then lock up when it can’t find it is known only to the wizards at Microsoft.

And why couldn’t it find the shared folder? It’s because Norton AntiVirus decided to run, froze up, and locked up the entire computer, requiring two reboots to bring it back to life.

Sue says, please buy a Mac so I don’t have to listen to you yell at the other woman. And I will, soon too.

    Good call on the Mac. I love mine. I have heard some bad things about the new Intel Macs though…bugs and worms and all that nasty stuff.
    Keep up the good work – as always.

    Stability, security, and no spyware — if only Mac was a form of government.
