Looks the same as always. Let's find out if it works...

So, what we really have here is that everyone can post on Trevor's blog except Trevor. Hmmm, that could have possibilities...

Betting it's Microsoft. Now if only you'd bought a Mac ...

Trevor Gay said...

Hi Noel

I reckon you must have shares in Mac :-)

Hi Mike

Thanks for your vote of confidence - I think :-)

Noel Guinane said...

Trevor, I wish. Have to content myself for the moment with buying their beautiful, reliable, state of the art machines and software, a more than satisfactory alternative to those unimaginative, clunky, virus-loving Microsoft-based systems all prone to a bad case of amnesia, as diagnosed in that immortal dialog box - File Not Found!

Trevor Gay said...

Like it Noel - you should be their marketing director :-)

Noel Guinane said...

Actually, I was kinda hoping Microsoft might hire me. They're the people who need help.

You're just sore that your Microsoft-based CC blew up on you though I admire your valiant attempt to protect us from the truth by blaming it on your ISP : )

Bet it was a virus!

Hi Noel

As you know I am but a simple person - all this IT jargon from another galaxy just confuses me - I just need the thing to work when I press the keys.

ISP's ... Whoosh attentuation - now come on ... lets talk English!

Buy an Apple. They really do speak English, and so do their computers. And with wonderful features like Spotlight, it's a breeze searching not only for file names on your hard drive, but inside those files too. So if for example, you wrote a wonderful story about roast potatoes but name the file 'untitled' by mistake and then forget where you saved it, you could type in 'roast potatoes' and Spotlight will show you every file on your hard drive that contains the words 'roast potatoes'.

Microsoft's file searching tool runs about as quickly as a snail on sleeping tablets and can only search inside some files whereas Apple's moves at blistering speed (before you've finished typing the whole file name) and can search inside anything.

Getting tougher all the time for Apple not having any competition. No fun competing wiith yourself, sort of like running a race and always coming in first because all the other runners are wearing hob-nail boots, fur hats and rubber tyres because that's what they think looks cool, dude!
