    Well it has to be Sir Slowhand me thinks :yes:

    Oh freddled gruntbuggly,
    Thy micturations are to me
    As plurdled gabbleblotchits
    On a lurgid bee
    That mordiously hath bitled out
    Its earted jurtles
    Into a rancid festering
    Now the jurpling slayjid agrocrustles
    Are slurping hagrilly up the axlegrurts
    And living glupules frart and slipulate
    Like jowling meated liverslime
    Groop, I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes
    And hooptiously drangle me
    With crinkly bindlewurdles,
    Or else I shall rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon
    See if I don't.

    (could be worse, at least it wasn't Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings - shudder)

    Did you use the keyboard back light as a soft, glowy, night light?

    Ohh... what background is that? And did they give you the Safari 4 Public Beta?

    Oh Chris....

    Now that you've got your new baby, you may want to pop over to this link. It's the Apple downloads page. Lots of interesting goodies! Some might even be useful. :unsure:

    Oh... and I know I mentioned Photoshop Elements at some point, but I think I forgot to mention Pixelmator. It's a relatively new image processing app. Quite nice. And a bit cheaper than Photoshop! :yes:

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

    Isn't it just :drool: worthy?! :geekon:

    They tried. They failed. I suppose the black-casing they use compliments the blue-screens that plague them :point:

    PSE was what I really needed as it has some very cool plug ins just for astronomy - the processing of those images are a little different to standard photos but I have installed them and they are up and running.

    I have put on half a dozen bits and bobs last night one or 2 I had to install twice as they seem to run compleytely differently under windows and OS and to get my super de duper flashy camera working I have to run it under a complete windows boot - sorry about that.

    Thanks for the link but before I go too far I want to learn the basics with what I have ( loads as it transpires)

    tonight is the night of the 'moving of itunes without losing it all'

    :fingers:

    Chris,

    Here's an article on how to do that. This method doesn't take your playlists and album meta data (artwork, etc.) along but it will work. There's other, slightly more complicated methods available out on the net that will take it all.

    Tom :)macwave:... hope it helps!)

    I have it all backed up to an external drive so TBH I was hoping on just dragging and dropping the files directly from that into the relevent files on the computer
