    Yeah! I'm so excited! :excited: I can't wait. I decided to go with the imac instead of the mac book as I haven't traveled with my laptops in the past and I like a bigger screen.

    I hope to get many years out of this lovely machine!

    Secret handshake...oooo, I'm ready. :salute:

    Excellent! You're going to be sooooo pleased!

    [​IMG] Hey! Hello! I'm excited to be here. Nice to meet you all! [​IMG]


    I ordered it online and it should be here either the 15th or 16th. I'm sure there will be new questions that come up.

    Sorry Johnie. :sorry:

    You didn't advertise that you'd gotten a Mac except for the one post the other day. At least I didn't see it if you did. We certainly didn't mean to exclude you.

    All members of the Steve Jobs Appreciation Society are welcome here! :worship:

    Ok, FD showed you how it works. We good now?

    Tom :)macwave:... mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa...)

    It's possible you did. :yes:

    But that was back in March and I sometimes wonder what happened 5 minutes ago. :mental:

    EDIT: Just went a searching through the depths of the fora and did indeed find where you posted your new toy. Sorry bout that. My mind is a terrible waste. No wait, that's a terrible thing to waste.

    Tom :)macwave:... of all the things I ever lost, I miss my mind the most!)

    Oh.... yeah... you better open it and check to make sure it works like Keith says.
    You can't ever be too careful about stuff like that. :unimpressed:

    Be sure to let us know if the little lights light and it's makes quiet little whirry noises. :unsure:

    Oh... and the boing. Gotta make sure it does the boing! :wiggle:

    Tom :)macwave:... just trying to help!)
