In Topic: Get a Mac

17 July 2006 - 05:43 PM

I love my Mac; I think you'll be very happy.

As far as the purchase, the only downside is that it was $$$. Other than that, it really was, take it out of the box, hook it up, run Software Update in System Preferences, plug in the peripherals, wait until it installs everything itself, and go.

I don't know anything about the new Macs, though. I'm interested in the dual platform thingie going on...

At the risk of being too political: one reason I let my subscription to Nation's Restaurant News lapse was that many of the positions supported were so right-wing.

I'd often heard it said that "Restaurant employees usually vote blue. Restaurant owners always vote red."

Let me get this straight: 55 of 111 had increased (1 to 40 percent) or the same business. Fifty-six lost from 3 to 50 per cent. In maybe one month since the ban took effect. Yeah, right, sure sounds conclusive to me. :(

Also anyone who knows the restaurant industry knows that some months are normally markedly better or worse than the previous month, and those months aren't necessarily the same for all restaurants. :(

(Some places have fantastic Septembers while others see September as a slow month. The only month almost across the board slow is January, and December and February are markedly busier.)

I'm pretty sure no conclusions can be drawn unless they are drawn based on prior YEAR figures - and even then, the variables that could affect sales are so wide and varied that that wouldn't even necessarily be conclusive.

Probably is. The girl I gave it to loved it, but it was too much for me.

Magsgundah, do you use the Skin Revr-upper? (ridiculous name)

I actually gave mine away because it honestly wasn't a good thing for me. It didn't help moisturize, at all, and it actually irritated my super-sensitive skin. I got all red and swelled up. :( My winter skin still looks way better than it would with anything else, so I'm pretty much content.
