All Hail the Return of the Mac

The iMac has returned from the shop with a brand-spanking-new hard drive and 50 GB of memory. I am so happy to have it home. And thanks to some advice from my pal Zach Roesing, I was able to buy the hard drvie online at for a reasonable $55 bucks. I did have to take it to a pro to have the drive put in; the iMac G5 version I have is not at all a user friendly when it comes to cracking it open and digging around inside. Still, the Help My Mac people did a great and very reasonably priced job, so the whole thing came in at under $200–less than the arm and leg I thought it might cost.

And I once again have access to my photo and design software, as well as easier access to mail. Oh my beloved iMac, I'm so glad you're back!

Fraudulent Farmgirl
I teach garden and homesteading skills—the stuff your great-grandmother knew how to do. But if there's a faster, cheaper, or easier way to do it, I'll find it!By day, I design earth-friendly gardens for Spotts Garden Service. By night, I don my Wellies to become the Fraudulent Farmgirl. On my small urban homestead, I've ripped out the front lawn to plant vegetables and fruit trees, turned the garage into a chicken coop and grown enough strawberries to feed half the neighborhood.
