Friends of the Library

Missed me? Was busy fighting pneumonia and working on my podcast. Also been mulling the big switch.

Anyway, I remembered to bring my camera on our annual visit to the Friends of the Library book sale at McKinley High School. Sometimes we leave with ten pounds of books but only a few dollars poorer. This year, we only picked up three kids' books and a used CD. Still, it's great to be immersed in a frenzy of book love once in a while. If only to remember how little time you have these days to read.

Was getting a little worried...glad you're back, and well. I've had a Mac and a PC for as long now as I can remember. I must say that my PC is getting less and less use these days. The ol' McKinley book sale -- I wonder where they store all those books they don't sell. I could've sworn I saw a book I donated years ago.

Let's talk about the "Switch". Do you Know much about the Powerbook. I think this is the next toy. What do you think? Hilton@OptimumWorld.com

NICE Videoblogs!! Just discovered them through iTunes. Would love to film some myself. Unfortunately I dropped my month old camera in the Seven Pools - Maui while I was there on holiday last year. Still saving for a new one :) Oh..and I'd love to make the switch too. I'd like to buy a mac mini though I'm not sure it's the best choice for creating podcasts & do video editing?

Ryan, don't get a mini mac. I would suggest a 1.25 eMac from the refurbished store. If you make sure to get the apple care it will be slightly more than buying a mini mac. I love my Macs...good luck! if you need any help with the new mac letme know.
