Believe me, Maverick, you don't need 2 buttons as easy as the Mac is is to operate......I know...each to his own favorites...:)

Corey, Mac's make great products....no computer of any kind is without some issue at one point or another. I'll take a Mac over PC any day of the week!
great to hear that you have such a wonderful onsite surgeon to take the time to repair your computer and that it's recovering beautifully, RK. What would we do without our geeks? My geek repairs everything because his dad put a screwdriver in one hand and a pair of pliers in the other as soon as he could toddle..

I am just trying to remember back to my high school days when for typing class we got these state of the art Mac's, I can't remember what their model number was, but I do remember it was the second version of the the first Apple line that was called a Mac, and it had a mouse. I can't remember how many buttons the mouse had, but I guess this means it must have only had one!
I do remember they were fun to operate and play games on. Even back then we had this kind of division set up where we used the Apples for playing games and the PCs for business applications.

I remember high school, too. Term papers every semester and lots of note cards arranged in order on my bed so that I could manually type up my term paper. So much fun....I'm still bitter to this day that I missed out on computers in my high school and most of my college years........

Well I count myself lucky then, we got our first Apples in school in 6th grade! It was sooo cool when we got one that had 'dual floppy drives'!
Anyone seen the new Apply commercial with their new thin notebook that they take out of an envelope?

Yah, the new Airbook looks cool but I hate that you can't play DVD's on it.

Kinda like the Sony Vaio I used to have then, it was very thin and had an external USB CDRW/DVD drive. Still, I bet students must love the portability.
Anyway sorry not to high-jack the thread, so the solution was to remove the airport completely?? Or remove it and then re-install it?

The airport it out, so I'm stuck with a cable instead of wireless!! Not a biggie, especially since it didn't cost a dime to fix. I'm so very grateful, I married a pretty amazing geek!
