iMac :)

Friday
10:30 am FedEx brings me my new assistant straight from Shanghai China.
28″ 2.8 Dual Core 500 gig iMac with 4 gig of RAM
6:00 p.m. I finally set it up.
6:10 realize that I am staring at a Tiger system.
6:15 I dig through the Mac box of goodies, find Leopard and begin the OS update.
8:00 Finally I can restart.
8:02 Password screen comes up, weird but OK…
8:03 Type password, the screen shakes, password rejected.
8:04 Type password, the screen shakes, password rejected.
8:05 Type password, the screen shakes, password rejected.
8:06 Type password, the screen shakes, password rejected.
call Apple “I am sorry, but our normal hours are…”
Saturday
9:00 am Call Apple
9:45 am First Tech
9:52 am Second Tech
9:53 Try…

9:58 Try…
restart
10:05 Try…
restart
10:16 Try…
Sir Did You? NO
Sir Did You? NO
Sir Did You? NO
10:25 Sir can you hold a moment?
11:30 am Third Tech “Hi I am senior software specialist…”
Sir Did You? NO
Sir Did You? NO
Sir Did You? NO
11:35 Try…
restart
11:45 Try…
restart
Tech – Sir I have good news and bad news, the good news is we can fix this, the bad news is you will lose all your data
Me – There is no data, I opened the box last night.
Tech – Sir why have we been doing this?
Me – You tell me tech support guy.
11:56 Sir, Ok select erase and reinstall

So I learned how to type code in the control mode of my Mac which was interesting. Now in defense of Apple this is the first time I have ever been on hold longer than 10 minutes and not had an issue resolved 2 minutes later. Overall I like Leopard a lot, although I have about 6 issues in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom that I will need work use a work around for until the next Apple patch. But oh well, the resolution and speed are phenomenal.
