Hey everyone. New here. Found out about ehmac from another message board. Anyways my names Howard, and I'm form T.O. Currently in my last year of university for accounting.

Just bought my first mac......a second generation 2ghz macbook and loving it. Still can't beleive how fast this little machine is, it blows away my old Pentium M. I installed XP via bootcamp, and was shocked to find out that it runs windows better and fast than a PC . And office mac looks so much better than office on a PC.

Happy holidays!

Afternoon, Howard. Sheamus, our official greeter here in ehMacLand, will be with you shortly. How did you come up with the name "gggfff"?

HowEver, that person in the PC/Apple ads is intentionally a dope. Howard is a smart person. Paix, mon ami.

Dude. LOL. I know the name Howard accompanied by the accounting profession.... might give off impressions of a middle aged man going through his mid life crises......But I'm only 21 and look nothing like that guy in the Mac ads...lol. If anything I resemble the hipper, younger dude better. But I really don't like him at all. In fact, I wanna punch him in the face every I see that stupid smug on his face.

Howard, violence is not an alternative. Now, breathe deeply and say, "I shall love all things Mac, bright and beautiful" four times. Paix, mon ami.

I started coming here in March 2006 but I was hiding for awhile and just started coming back on here again recently.

My name's Kelly, I am a Technical Support Consultant (Tier 1) for Rogers Hi-Speed Internet. I live in Nova Scotia. I have an iBook g4. My mom had a boyfriend when I was younger and he was into Macs and that's how I got influenced, I don't think I would be as interested in computers or Macs if he hadn't been around me at such a young age. I love the iCal, it's awesome.

Hello all... I've popped in here occasionally in the past as a lurker, but decided it was about time that I finally sign up, as this looks like a great general Mac community for those of us Canucks!

Although a veteran of the computer and I.T. space, since my day job is an IT consultant, I'm a "switcher", having bought my first iPod in the fall of '04, and then having finally given in about a year later to the resulting desire to get a PowerBook. At this point, I'm now a die-hard convert, and other than a cob-webbed PC in the corner that I use for testing purposes, I've managed to convert to an all-Mac world at home.

In my other major hobby I'm the token Canadian over on the iLounge editorial and admin team, so you'll probably see me hanging out around there quite a bit.

Other than that this looks like a great place, and I look forward to becoming a more active participant.
