1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Don't be upset with me, bro. The simple fact of the matter is, PCs are more efficient when it comes to anything that involves a keyboard. Macs are generally better for things that involve a mouse. Almost everything I do I prefer to use a keyboard and shortcuts for, so PCs work better for me.

    BTW I tried a Mac for several months with an open mind, but because of the way I use a computer, it was not a good fit.

    Neither is inherently better or worse.

    Yes they can. Apple mice have had right-click since 2005. I'm not a fan of Apple's mice, though, so I use a Logitech Performance MX which has all programmable buttons you could want.

    Yep, and 95% of people who prefer using a mouse will prefer a Mac, while 95% of people who prefer a keyboard/Excel/numbers stuff will prefer a PC.

    Correlation is correlation, bro.


    non-existent statistics are non-existent bro.

    I have to admit, the more I use my iPod Touch, the more tempted I am to get an iPhone. I'm just concerned about reception and having the same business (email/Outlook sync'ing) funtionality as my B-berry.

    Preference is preference bro

    You've gotta love how Mac supporters respond to a well constructed and articulate forum comment.

    No comment on Mac vs. PC. But you bought a desktop? Seriously? In 2010?
    I need a workstation in my office and servers so no getting around that. I did get a laptop last week for doing editing at home. I am amazed with the amount of work it does on a little freaking laptop. Oh yeah mac vs pc... I really don't care. Did I get my work done? did I make a profit? Thats what I concern myself with.

    Seriously? What is wrong with you people? I can almost understand the lib vs repub hate, because the differences there actually might be important, but saying things like "if you don't like PCs then you're too stupid to comment properly" and vice versa is just incredibly idiotic. People like what they like. Doesn't make them stupid or inarticulate.

    i love my macs, but the 27" iMac is kinda like having a 7 series BMW:

    big to the point of being too large
    very very expensive (but don't care/are very happy once you own it)
    should you drive it? wait maybe it would be better if i had a driver? (is it a proper desktop computer or a small flatscreen entertainment center so maybe i should just buy a TV).
    new models will come out next year and make you sad.


    The only sucky thing is getting used to the huge screen real-estate. Even if you use a 15"-17" laptop after the screen seems small, even more so for the 13" models.

    That is true. It was around $2000. I don't think that it's too large at all. Being able to view two documents simultaneously with page and a half length each, in addition to a video window or maybe a browser is a huge asset. I am just so much more productive.

    Do Macs have the left/right snapping feature that Windows 7 has? I found this feature to be very useful on large monitors.

    Dual monitors would have given you even more screen space and done so for much less money.

    yeah except most of the people with dual monitors live with their parents. i joke..

    Well I think that looks cluttered. The iMac has an incredible screen... there's only one cable..for power.. it's just a very clean product. To me it's just a lot more pleasant than having two monitors. I've seen that and I just don't like it.

    Money wasn't a huge concern for me so I don't really care that I could have saved like $500.

    Yeah you can do something like that with the magic mouse, but I don't find the large size to be a problem at all.

    Well, there's a work-around/substitute for right-click, which isn't quite the same thing.
