Okay, it´s enough of that shit.
Yesterday I wanted to work on my PC a little,
but too bad - it doesn´t boot. Checked the wires - still
doesn´t work. It simply doesn´t respond to the "Power on" button.
Looked inside to see if any wires are unplugged, but in between
the mess that is my hardware I had no idea what could be wrong.
Is the button itself damaged? I didn´t do anything special last time
I used it.
I am fed up with all this PC crap. GIMP crashes all the time,
my internet is slowed down to a crawl (God knows what kind of
Spyware or whatever is on it), I can´t even install RAM
properly. And nevermind that I didn´t backup my last pictures, most
stuff is stored on various CDRs, though. That´s the problem with
buying low end hardware - its only a matter of time till the whole
systems crashes. Cheaply made stuff breaks fast.
I am going to take some money from my savings and buy
a Mac Mini.
I never was a huge fan of Macs so far (mostly because
I didn´t like their one-button mouse), but the fact that operating system,
software and hardware are all made by one manufacturer is reason enough
for me. A Mac is a Mac, there is no hassle with dozends of driver disks,
system parts dying and dragging other parts with them, or incompatible hardware
causing problem after problem. I just need a
sturdy, reliable, quality hardware.
And with 600 euro it´s not exactly
a bargain, but those are machines that are supposed to last for many, many
years. And I don´t need to make huge internet research to compare brands.
It´s just one model, that´s it.
Also, please excuse that this post looks pretty
shitty, as I am using Merles laptop that doesn´t have
Firefox (or whatever the reason), so, meh.
So, hopefully I will be able to buy it Monday or Tuesday, and that´s
the time I should be able to make new posts. Maybe I´ll use my newly
registered Worpress account. Let´s see. Until then!
