Star Wars: The Original

Tonight was the next in my #watchemall series of movies.  Last weekend I binged on Star Wars movies (so I can fit them all in before the new one in a few weeks), tonight is the next one in the series.  Tonight was “A New Hope”, or what it was called when I saw in theatres back in 1977, just “Star Wars”.  And no Maclunky, either!

MacOS Catalina Issues

I've been a Mac fan now since I got my first one in the fall of 2015. After a lifetime of being a Windows guy, I jumped ship, and had little to no learning curve. Don't want to go back. I've gotten quite used to the way Macs do things. It's for that … [Continue reading]

Open Letter to Tim Cook

Earlier today I wrote an email to Tim Cook of Apple.  Not that I expect him to reply, but one NEVER knows.  He does the same thing Steve Jobs did - which is occasionally reply to a random email sent by a customer, so I thought what the heck.   Here's … [Continue reading]
