Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

Oh, it's always the aunts, who tend to misuse the technology to make things LESS readable and make the presentation WORSE.

I saw the comment about stationary and immediately thought of those messages I used to get from my aunts. You know, the emails with the pink curlicued text (or several different fonts and colors, just to be shocking!) that come with fifty FWD: and RE: markers, and then some pictures of babies and puppies and kittens. Generally these are followed by an admonishment to forward this message to twenty people in the next hour to show them somebody loves them.

They stopped sending me those things when I forwarded those chain letters back to THEM the requisite fifty-some-odd times.

Of course, they probably think I hate kittens now.

My step mother does. 3 a day at least. Several years ago I asked her to stop and she did. Then I visited her and they started up again. I just don't have the heart to ask her to stop... again...
