Do You Also Say Froe-drick?

Welcome, iGor!

A friend drove me down to the tech store today. We picked up iGor and dropped off Lord Jeff. The tech people will extract all the data from Lord Jeff and put it on a CD that I can pick up later. I was able to take iGor home today, and after a little noodling around, he is all set up. He is exceptionally cool -- runs OS X, has lots of nifty applications, runs Safari. . . life is good.

It is very shiny. I can't wait to play a few movies on its lovely new screen.

iGor is fabulous. After some initial frustration with setup, he is already making my life happy.

Congrats on your new toy (loved the iGor/Froe-drick line--that's a truly twisted movie).

And on another note, I remember reading that you did well on your defense, but I cannot remember if I was ever anywhere where I was able to login and congratulate you--so if not: Hip hip hooray for you!!

For your amusement.

One step closer to being a Master Pony! Wheeeee! I also managed to track down my graduation warrant. Life is looking up.

iGor is a great overlord tool. I've got a printer, too. Now, all I have to do is figure out how to acquire Word, and I can continue the story I'm working on.

Oh yeah and schoolwork, too.

http://www.viosoftware.com has got some of the best prices on software I've seen. I order all the company stuff through them. You can get Works pretty cheap.

If OpenOffice works on Macs, the new version is pretty good (on Windows, at least). Another option is to use ajax, through Firefox, which is a web based word program..but the catch is its on the Internet.

Oh, BIGTIME congratulations on iGor. :).

I'm also very happy to see that you had a wonderful Passover. We will be doing our yearly matzoh brie brunch with friends a bit late, as my parents had to travel. It's one of those family/friend traditions that developed over the years, and to which we greatly look forward.

Wishing more wonderful things your way,

iGor is settling in nicely. The IT people called and said they had the CD of my stuff from Lord Jeff's hard drive ready and waiting. I can go pick it up tomorrow, and I'll also get Word while I'm at it. Then. . . onward into the modern era!
