Isn't She Lovely?

Isn't she lovely? Isn't she wonderful?
Yes, this is the newest addition to my home. To my desk. Ahhhhh...
little Miss Mackey runs a bit different than my dinosaur Sony Vaio Notebook. Instead of using good 'ol faithful Internet Explorer I am now using Safari. No biggie, I think. But then I try to view photos in emails sent to me or on webpages I pull up and I am greeted with a big blank square where said photos should be. Annoying. So I ask my All-Knowing-Mac-Friend, Harmoni, que pasa? She tells me that sometimes Macs don't *read* some sites via Safari (this would also explain why some items I was trying to relist and edit on eBay were only viewable via an entire page of HTML codes! Ack!) and that I should also add another web browser such as Firefox. Okey-dokey. I hop on over to this Firefox thing and read...yada, yada, here to download...yada yada, yada. Click. Click. Click. Firefox is downloaded.
So for you Mac users...please tell there anything else about the Land of Mac that I should know so that I will love my little Miss Mackey?
And by the way...right now I am back on the dinosaur old faithful...

Congrats on the new Mac. We are totally non-Mac people here but I know many who once convereted to Mac won't go back.

Congratz. Seriously though, anything is safer to run than IE. Really. I was a Mac gal and then married a PC guy. Back in the stone-age when you couldn't work on your own Mac - or has that not changed? So, sadly, we are PC folks here. But at least when I need upgrades I know who to whine to! :)

Cheers, have fun with your new toy. It looks sweet!

Congrats on your Mac. Once you get used to will LOVE it! My hubby who was die hard PC....hates his PC now and wishes he could do everything on Mac. :o)

And here I thought you were posting about the new hair. What a let down!

Nah, I'm just kidding. :-)

Enjoy your new toy!!

We are PC here (not politically correct PC, the computer kind) so no help with the MAC questions, other than I like the commercials. But congrats on the new computer!
