Goodbye, Sweet Friend



Well. It was bound to happen sometime. Last week our beautiful little G4 was chugging along, merrily as ever, when - poof! - gone. Dead. Finito.

Just like that.

And it took four years of photographs and six days worth of downloaded music with it.

Drat.

So now we have a new (new-old) iMac, the G5. I will miss the G4 - its cute round bottom, its happy disposition.

But the G5 looks promising. Sleek. Updated operating system. Adorable red dictionary/thesaurus. I think we shall be fast friends. I will try not to judge it too harshly.

(Or its new friend, External Hard Drive.)

    The G5 does look very cool. My Dad wants to get one because he is a total photographer. The problem is he's just not a total computer guy. But I need to remember that the man only actually started owning a computer less than 10 years ago.
