Let me tell you about my last day of class...

Atom. he didn't really wait for the last minute, except for burning the dvd itself, which I'm sure he won't be doing again nor would he have done so if he had known that problem was going to arise. Oh well lesson learned right?

Exactly. The point is that despite all my troubles, I still managed better grades with an overload than I've ever gotten in school period.

And in hindsight, I suppose that if the PC's at SCAD atlanta (I'm Atlanta College Of Art forced-transfer) are any indication of how the mac's are maintained, then they are not maintained at all. They all have ridonkulous lockdowns to keep the inbreds, thugs, and computer illiterate from raping, vandalizing, and installing Limewire or Yahoo IM or AIM on (respectively). This way the IT doesn't have to manage so much. Doesn't stop imbeciles from setting projects to the desktop and using it like a folder, or putting garbage on the computer. That issue is only addressed when they batch-format the entire computer in the school every quarter.

My favorite is when SCAD students or anime fanboy losers leave their work on the desktop. The students I hang around with, mostly from Atlanta College Of Art, will all gather around and we'll laugh at stuff left on the desktops. I can't imagine how SCAD has such a high job placement rate if they let in anybody without a portfolio. There's one kid at my old school that I wondered how he got in, and he has a rare learning disability. Atlanta College of Art got sold to SCAD. I've got some bad blood in my veins about that one. I dislike SCAD and their policies more than I dislike editing video on Mac's. Sadly, my only option was to transfer to Ringling in Sarasota Fl, and they wanted me to start over from a rising Junior to a freshman. I could have bought a DB9 for the price difference in cost of attendance including the two wasted years.

A lot of people think mac's are invincible and they're not... So people tend to take even less care of them. The OSX is stable and quite secure, but if you put shit on them and don't ever do the security and software updates, they will have problems. Mine is well taken care of and updated regularly and I truly never have problems with it at all.

On the flip side, I pretty much NEVER have problems with my PC, either. However, it has only seen the internet for about one day in the last year... Otherwise, it's permanently disconnected and works great. The Mac gets the brunt of the internet everyday and runs fine all the time... And there is full flexibility there to do security and everything else you could possibly want. There is complete flexibility and functions, and if you wish, you can speak directly to the operating system in code, if you know what you are doing.

As for using editing software on Macs... I don't find it any more difficult than on a PC, other than the hot keys are different... I actually don't find anything difficult about the Mac interface at all, again other than it is different from PC, and may seem foreign to a PC user... I go back and forth between Windows and Mac, having no issues with either.

Anyway, just pulling your leg a bit... :) I never even did most of my school work.

Both the first and last days of class over the past year have sucked...quite a bit.

Here's to next year being more mundane.

Yeah, I bet they never do updates. The PC's beg to update all the time, but the permissions are set so that they cannot be updated. So they ask to restart a lot anyhow, something to do with an acrobat update that cannot complete because they are locked up with novell. So I bet the mac's are just as neglected.:cwm21:

I haven't had a major software conflict in windows that caused corrupt anything, or hindered my ability to do anything for..... hmmm... gotta be 5 years. On a PC... thats connected to the internet damn near 24/7/52. I've also only had to deal with removing spyware/malware maybe 3 times in the past 6 years. And have only gotten a virus (CIH) once in the 12 years that i've had a computer in my house. Very few hardware conflicts... and when they did happen, 80% of the time it was because I was doing stuff that I knew would possibly cause shit to break.

PC's are for compitent people (tho maybe only 15% of users are compitent). Mac's are for those who do video editing (only because supposedly macs have the better/more mature software) and also for those who think computers should work like a microwave with one dial (the time) and no buttons.

I'll be damned. I graduated from ACA in 1994. I majored in sculpture. At the time they wouldn't let us fine arts types near the computer lab. Then again, we were often mistaken for the homeless that wandered midtown at the time.:)

I was not happy when my annual alumni magazine showed up letting me know I was now technically a SCAD alumni :cwm19:. Nothing against SCAD, but one of the cool things about ACA was that it was a very small and focused community. Good memories of that place.

Macs are for whoever wants them, buddy :)

You've clearly never used one for little more than a few minutes if you truly think that. Between the two of us, I'm the only one who owns both platforms, so I think I'd have a better reference point. As I said, they allow you to access every feature a PC does if you are 'competent' (not compitent). Just because you can't be bothered to figure it out doesn't mean it's not there.

And by the way, I like my PC, too.
