In early 1998 I switched to the Mac because I just wanted a simple to use computer for record keeping and to access the web.
In late 1999 I stated this web site because I thought Id try and cash in on the dot com frenzy and create an over commercialized, bloated and content challenged portal. Well I guess I missed that boat! Now all I have is dreams of what could have been if struck it lucky with VC and been an IPO paper billionaire.
Truth be told, this site was started as a way for me to organize some of the cool things I discover on the net and post some of my own junk. To build it I use just two software packages, Photoshop for the graphics and BBedit to write the HTML.
Now ya know why I use a Mac and why I started this site. If you are interested in using a better thought out machine than windoze PC, check out an FAQ article I found online regarding the topic.
Now here are some Mac links worthy of further investigation:
