That how you spell warship?

I am migrating all my stuff to a new computer, and I've come across some items in my email that I don't remember seeing. Among them are some King Dork reader photos I may post soon and this piece of album art for one of Tom's and Sam's bands, which came from somebody from here. Belated thanks.

ooooohhhhh, What'd you get? A nice shiny new MacBook Pro with the Core2Duo? You know OSX Leopard is due out in two months? It'll probably set us back another $150 or so....

I just got a plain old macbook, Zaph. I would have gone for the pro if they made a 12" edition, but the 15" is way too big for me.

Cool, I myself have a mini. Same guts as the Macbook. Good stuff!!

hey speaking of new computers...

i got one too...sort of...its still old.

i guess its a macbook but not an i book,its from when they still called them Macintoshes.
the guy i work for is good at garage saleing,
an he just gave me this ...i think Macintosh 1800, that he just wanted to get rid of.
it has a removable floppy drive that comes out like the battery,but no cd drive.

i'm happy with it,lots of software already on it.

computer dorks have any warnings or hints?

It's probably a pre-G3 MacBook, Beth. For all intents and purposes it won't run any new software or be very useful at this point as it probably has a modem but no lan-port. You may be able to get on the net via dial-up if you were to install a PPC version of Linux on it. That'd probably be the best way to go with it, istall Linux, preferrably Ubuntu or SUSE.

well it has stuff its a powerbook 1400 i learned.
hate to keep on digressing but i have a question. perhaps write back at my current email i include here these days if you see this and have time.

it has photoshop 5.0 but even though i opened it before once to check it out,it won't open now. it says can't intialize because scratch disks are full. did i do something wrong?
