AB - easy to adapt to changes when you are younger.

MsMA - as stephen says, get the Mac looked at :)

I am getting crosslinking eye surgery done to stop my keratoconus getting worse. I am terrified.

So funny thing, apparently my Mac was so old that the Mac store won't look at it yet alone fix it. So I called a computer store by me and explained my problem and the tech told me he thinks it's my start up drive and my hard drive and it would cost me a good amount of money. So I honestly just bought a new computer. Why spend a lot of money fixing something that is old when I could get a newer and much nicer product for a little more. Eventually I will fix my old computer so I can work on two computers, but for right now I have a nice new one.

Only to find out that a lot of the web development software for my classes is Windows only!! So for school i forked up a few hundred and bought an HP laptop. Now I'm broke and am trying to figure out how to work a Windows computer again. My sister is going to give me money for the laptop and we will share it as she needs a computer and hates Macs.

The compatibility of operating systems can be a bane to all of us.... :mrgreen:

I've been working with Windows all my life. The company I worked for for 5 years forced me on a mac, that was the point I had to quit. So I understand your frustrations there is nothing worse than working on an operating system you are not used to, it just seems backwards.

You know you can dual boot a Mac so it has MacOS and Windows to match both needs.

I sometimes use my drafts on this forum as a sort of quickly-done drive so I can work on drafts for various things while I'm at college. But the one I need right now has disappeared

I'm getting used to it. It just seems like i have to search everywhere for applications when on a Mac I can find them in a second.

I have been on a temporary lay-off from my job for nearly this past month and I've lost all sense of structure! I am routine driven and since have reverted to some old habits of feeling more awake at 3 a.m. than I do at 3 p.m. and not getting everything I desire accomplished. Also, my back is compounding matters worse and I haven't been going out as much. However, I plan on jolting myself in the arse and changing all of this quickly or else!

If you're awake at 3am, but not 3pm, keep off the coffee Louie.... :)

Only have a cup or two in the morning, and avoid it after that. A simple solution often works.
