I am a 2nd year master’s student at U of O and I converted in May 2007 with help from Dave. I attend ByMUG whenever I can manage to climb out from my piles of articles and textbooks. I don’t code, program or edit anything; I like finding apps to do that for me. I still consider myself a newbie when it comes to ever-evolving Macs, which is part of the fun.
I use my Mac for school & entertainment. My favourite applications are Mail, Safari, iCal, iTunes, Adium, CandyBar and PhotoBooth. The aesthetics of Macs is what drew me to them in the first place and the demos I do seem to focus on neat & pretty things you can only do with Macs. I’m currently debating whether I can bear to be parted from my iPod nano (3rd gen) in favour of an iPod Touch.
