Dear cjmnews, Hey, Thanks too for the info on youy backup. I do have an oldfashioned harddrive made by a company called Rosewill but I want to purge it before beginning its' use again. For the record, I have ordered the Apple CD/DVD unit. Yes, as you pointed out it was 3x more than the knockoff but I just dont want to risk incompatibility or some such nonesense even at the peanuts price of $23. These kinds of things shouldnt be so cheap, ending up in the landfill in a few years, bleeding in to groundwater. Happy thoughts, eh? Thanks for your help. Chrisman
cjmnews, IM back with one more inane question: What in your opinion is a good forum for learning some basic use of onboard iMac programs, like how to accelerate the cursor's movement (it advances like a snail) or how to set tabs on 'Pages'
Believe it or not, Ive tried to perform these tasks many times and cannot figure it out (( I know, Im a Dork thanks again Chrisman
