#1: death to computers

Posted on 2004-11-05 00:13:17 by hepkatreetaroonie

My hard drive was acting up, so I did a clean install of Windows,
thinking there were conflicts somewhere. So the better part of two
days backing up, reinstalling programmes, restoring files, resetting
preferences in every damn programme under the sun. It still didn't
ficking well work, in fact was worse, so I transferred everything over
to my laptop and spent the better part of another day reinstalling,
etc etc. I am fed up to the ficking teef with computers. The problem
with the last computer is that it was a cheap piece of junk from Radio
Shack, and the drive, which has been acting up for months, lasted a
grand total of 2 years. Whoo! Kwality is Job 4,312! On the plus side,
typing with a keyboard on my lap is much more ergonomically sound,
plus I have a huge screen. Somehow this is all Bush's fault, that
retard. If Gore had won back in '00 this wouldn't have happened - you
can trust a computer made during the administration of someone wjho
invented the internet. And I've been to seen a physiotherapist about
the RSI I have seemingly everywhere, and he's said No guitar for a
weak at least. Prolly a stinking Republican. I think my arms and hands
are Republicans - they're refusing to do anything useful. Not that I
wish to put a political spin on this. And I could be wrong, I'm the
first to admit. It may well be that His Gracious Excellency King
George III is a beacon of promise for a wonderful future. I think it's
more likely to be a brave new world, but there I go again. Stinking
computers cheese me off.

&gt;

I have been using computers since just after punched cards. I used to love
them; I was good at it and could figure things out and felt in control.
Gradually this feeling of smug security disappeared as computers got easier
and easier to use? This was because of two main things: the WWW and
Windows95. Before that, I bought a computer and set it up how I wanted it.
Now, I just spend hours wading through microsoft help files desperately
trying to figure out why I cannot print anything green on Fridays or why a
certain application will not open any more or why microsoft word refuses to
believe that I want to use Irish/English spelling. I have become a slave to
the software that has made it all so easy. There is now so much software
and it is so complicated/flexible that I understand less and less. I am
also getting older which does not help. On top of all that, I was hit by a
bad virus twice this year, for the first time in my entire life.

I hate the effin things now.

On a more positive note and to remain on topic, the net has given me access
to tons and tons of jazz guitar material. The best computer benefit of the
lot though, for me at least so far, is BIAB. Without BIAB, I would have
great difficulty learning any jazz tunes.

Although Macs are somewhat more comprehensible, they still suck big
time. And if you want support, you have to pay for it -- big time.

When I feel like that - which is not infrequent (don't get me started on
how computer hardware gets faster and faster while Micro$oft manages to
slow it all down to a crawl with its so-called operating systems...) - I
put on a record by Kenny Burrell and suddenly the world's a beautiful
place!

I keep hearing that, but the first computer I got was a Mac, and it
was a piece of junk. Endless crashes, date lost, not support. I wore
I'd never get another. Apart from the bad drive on my last pc 've
never had any troiuble, although I'll agree that Windoze is an
egregrious bit of programming. Give me DOS any day. I don't need

hey max,
have you checked out macs since they've come out with OSX? I used to
hate macs back in the day, and I recently switched to using a mac and
have never been happier. OSX really is a completely different OS and my
machine has literally never crashed. nor have I ever had any problems
with it at all. I seriously doubt I will ever use a pc again for
anything other than playing poker.

I keep hearing this, and I hear it from people who know a lot more
about computers than I do. I am tempted, I admit, but then I have
problems with printer interfaces [my HP won't work for a mac], ditto
scanner, and I don't know about software. All the hardware for macs -
printers etc - costs a good 15%-20% more than for PC. This last
comuter is the only pc I've ever had trouble with - the previous one
lasted 7 years and I donated it in good running order to a charity.
All I do is spreadsheets and word processing. I'm a recording dimbulb,
but even there recording softtware all works for pc. What little
tweaking I do to photos works fine on pc, and Photoshop is fully
functional on a pc. So I ain't a'gonna do it. My laptop here is
working great, just great, and in fact is much friendlier ergonically.
I am assumng, based on past experience, that it'll be good for another
5 years, although I'll likely need a ram uopgrade. I should quit
bitching, I know, but 3 freaking days of installing and backing up is
enough to weaken even the steeliest of nerve.

I don't want to harp since you sound convinced :), but my HP printer
and scanner both work with mac OSX, and I just got a logitech mouse and
I just plugged it in and it just worked. no installing drivers, no
nothing. just worked. same with my mircrosoft ergo keyboard. most new
printers you buy will work out of the box with OSX. everything just
works, it's really great.

in addition to all this, you can download a ton of legally free
recording software for mac because anything that runs on unix/linux
will compile and run on a mac. I use audacity and love it.

Don't forget that you'll find a host of software built into the OS in
OSX, so you don't have to use 3 party software like on Windoze which
makes the whole thing unstable. Like the other guy said it will just
work and update itself and you shouldn't have any problems with
hardware.
And after using Safari as a web browser with its effortless tabbed
browsing you'll never use a PC again.
iTunes is built in as is iPhoto (the easiest program to use with digi
cameras), spend a few pounds and you'll get iLife which has Garage
Band which I gather is the easiest music program to use.

I can sum up with this comment from my friend who is a PC engineer who
said after he borrowed my MAC that it actuallu integrated onto a
windows network easier than a PC as the configuration was done
automatically!


Do you need any more convincing????!!!!

&gt;

I don't find this to be the case when integrating Macs onto my Microsoft
network. Sure, they'll get an IP address automatically - so will any PC
running Windows or Linux. If you want the Mac to actually *use* the
network resources such as files and printers, it's a little tougher. Don't
get me wrong, I think Macs running OSX are fine machines (not the case
with previous versions of the Mac OS), but the commercials that suggest
that the Mac just 'configures itself' to work with other peripherals and
networks are simply advertising hyperbole.

I love Linux too, but I don't recommend it to any of my friends who don't
like tinkering with operating systems, because that's what you'll be doing
to get it running and install applications - tinkering. Constantly.

They're all fine operating systems, though. Let's don't let this thread
degenerate into an arguement about that. If you think the recent political
threads were acrimonious, try arguing mac v. Windows v. Linux for a while.

That's the &quot;chord selector wheel&quot;. The big wheel
selects the chord (C, Eb, Bb etc) then the smaller
wheel selects the quality of the chord. Turn it to
the left (port) and you get minor, further left is
diminished. Turn it to the right (starboard)
for augmented. If you spin the big wheel really
fast, you get &quot;Sheets of Chords&quot;.

Keyboard/printer in the foreground runs the
latest version of Finale.

Note the combo monitor/subwoofer on the wall.
Gets those bass tones off the floor. Really cleans
up the low end. Authentic tube overdrive from
the built in Sylvania point to point wired amp.
