I’M A PC

9-14-2008 016

I went to the company meeting yesterday. Steve Ballmer reminds me of one of the uncles on my mother’s side of the family. He talks loud, has a good sense of humor, and plenty of passion. I can easily imagine him sitting at the kitchen table with a bottle of beer and a red face, discussing the Rollers’ upcoming fate, deriding the coaches, or extolling teams from the past.

I like the new advertising campaign. I got my first PC in the early 90s. It was a 386, with so little RAM you could count it on your fingertips. What a step up from my electronic typewriter! When I installed Windows 3.11, I remember getting a cramp in my shoulder trying to figure out how to operate the mouse.

Now I find I can’t get by without at least three PCs at home. I have four at work (not counting virtual machines). Sometimes Holly says she wants a Mac. She thinks everything will be easier if she gets a Mac.

I tell her, You don’t want a Mac.

She may be right. Everything may very well be easier on a Mac, but when things go wrong (as we all know they must), I will not be able to help.

Why? 

Becasue I’m a PC!

    Timmy, I only made this post as an excuse to post this picture. 🙂

    If you look at my hands, you can see I am trying to do the big discreet muscle flex. I had to lower my head to hide the big goofy grin. I’m so happy with my new exercise program, but I’m in no danger of getting to be your size. You’re still the big dog, buddy.

  3. I’m a Mac. Truth is, it is much cooler to be a Mac. And fewer things go wrong. When your Internet is down and the tech says, “We’re gonna rebuild your desktop,” all you have to do is say, “I’m a Mac,” and the tech says, “Oh. Must be on our end.”

    I am probably going to get Holly a Mac book before long. I don’t know how you Mac guys do it. I tried to use a mouse at the Apple store not long ago and failed miserably. How can anyone get anything done with no right-click?

  5. […] it to the new store after the movie, but I am sure I’ll check it out before Christmas. I’m certinly a PC, but I have been known to go into the Mac store from time to time. I’m looking forward to […]
