Ow. Ow. Ouch. My head hurts. I made a mistake. I remembered how my computer used to work better before I upgraded it, and I remembered how last time I installed that old system it took me about an hour because I've been keeping notes of all the settings. So I backed it all up and downgraded. But oh! Oh! Weird things happened. Basically, I think it's showing that this computer was bought from Aldi, and when it stopped working was posted to my house (via royal mail) where I had to be very kind to it until it remembered it wasn't actually born a toaster. Basically, the parts are misbehaving. It's wheezing. Sometimes it forgets that it has a screen.
Anyway, the reason I got this was mainly that back then I couldn't afford a mac. Now I've saved up for one, and a mac I shall have. - I'll keep using a good lot of the open source software, though.
I do love this computer, I really enjoy using Linux, but I can't really spend many more nights like that. And while I normally enjoy tinkering and making things work, right now I quite want to tinker with some words and pictures and sounds.
So! I wonder what sort of Mac to get? I hope this headache will pass quickly so I can do some research. And I also have to put together a quick slideshow for a talk tomorrow.
