Ok, so it's not THAT kind of new baby...but still, a new Mac Book Pro laptop is insanely cool for a boring old mommy blogger like me to get. My old computer was dying and we had a little extra cash, and I was going to just get it refurbished and be out of commission for a week or so, but Mr.Cotta insisted I spend a little money on MYSELF on something cool and not just be all practical and self-sacrificing.
A little frilly is good for the soul, no?
Now, if I could just figure out how to get Safari to work????? It won't fit in the screen correctly, and I can't get all the tabs to work right...very very confusing after all these years of PC use. I'm also thinking of downloading Firefox instead? Opinions? Help?
And seriously, any suggestions on a cool laptop bag? I want something that doesn't look like a backpack, or a briefcase, more like a tote?
Next task, moving all my old word files, email etc. to this new hard drive and fixing up the old computer for exclusive kid use. I figure once the hard drive has been formatted and we reinstall all the software, it MIGHT not actually be full of spyware anymore...supposedly Kaz is learning how to create websites in HTML, dreamweaver, and a few other things, this week at computer camp, so maybe they can teach him how to surf without picking up bad stuff?
I had to laugh actually as he confided in me "It's really hard Mom, you wouldn't be able to do it, but don't worry, maybe I'll help you set up a webpage next."
"Thanks sweetie" (secret hehe, I really do have to introduce him to all of mommy's friends in the computer someday!)
