aidenfire: Harry Potter has Strong Feelings (hp: Harry Has Strong! Feelings!)
Hi guys! Some techy questions...

First of all, is there any way on DW to choose which tags display on your sidebar? Or choose only tags used more than x times?

In other news, my computer bit the big one a little before Christmas. My dad very kindly let me use his old laptop. However, it's a Mac, and as a staunch PC user, I've been having some issues. I'm willing to be converted, but does anyone have any suggestions on dealing with these minor annoyances that are cumulatively driving me nuts?

-Hitting the red x doesn't actually close the program? You have to go into the file menu and click quit?
-Highlighting a file and pressing the delete key doesn't, in fact, delete the file
-No differentiated delete and backspace key?
-No right click but many functions that are only visible upon right clicking????
-How do I view my network, to connect to a printer or whatever?
-Why does firefox only come up with my previous tabs 50% of the time, despite me having that setting chosen?
-How can I tell how strong/fast my internet connection is?
-Why can't I play .avi files in iTunes?
-Why does iTunes mirror all my music files, so my computer has them all on the drive twice?
-I wish I could see what windows I have open on the dock, not just the dot that says the program is running.
-Is there a one-click way to get to the desktop?

Anyway, I'm going to stop bitching and get over myself now, I just had to get that out there. Especially when macs are always touted as the best thing since sliced bread. There are some good features that I like, but it's not the perfect machine from the gods that some apple-diehards believe it is.


ETA: No offense meant to those of you who do love your macs! I know my mileage often varies from the general population. :)

A big THANK YOU to the anonymous who bought me paid time. I appreciate it so much and can't wait to get some new icons! Very much appreciated, and thank you. :)
