Re: Lots for sale

Llamas are good at cutting grass. They don't pull it with roots like goats, just bite off the top. They also don't poop where they stand but go to a special toilet place like cats. So we're going to get a couple for a parcela. If you get a llama, buy also a shovel 'cause you'll going to need it and...

I buy UK peanut butter there. They have some European things but not so many.

Re: Is it time to swap your Mac for a Window's laptop?

In case you don't need laptop-level mobility, there are Mac Minis in $600-800 range. We use them for over 5 years and they travelled to 5 countries with us. I hope they'll be updated this year at last.

Re: Is it time to swap your Mac for a Window's laptop?

Right, let's go for viruses, apps with ads, clunky UI and general lack of security because new MacBooks are not the best version in the series. I'm watching this anti-MacBook outrage for 2 months. It's just a good theme for journalists and bloggers to exploit. People pay lots of money to Apple not f...
