iAm a Converted iMac User

I had the iMac for a week already and a few things puzzled me.  But that doesn’t stop me from actually buying a domain just for my iMac and setting up a WordPress blog for that!  I know, I know, I have a domain for every darn thing I do.  Migration (plan cancelled), cooking, God, parenting, photo etc etc.  Every hobby has a blog.

I attended a two hours session on getting to know my Mac and now I am a converted user.  Give me another two weeks and I can kiss   Windows goodbye.  Right now, I have a lot to rush out from my laptop (which is a Sony Vaio running on Vista) so I have little time to fully concentrate on the iMac.  I have both machines running btw.

My first few questions were ;

1)  Hey!  How come I cannot find the right click on my mouse?

2) How am I going to copy and paste?

3) Why isn’t there a virus protection?

I got the answers to all and more.

But you know what is my problem?  I cannot log into system admin!  So, my usage is rather limited.  The Apple Centre guy told me to bring in the iMac to let them have a look.  Maybe next week.

What I see on my System Preference, Accounts is only my name and it is labelled Standard.  So, I do not know who is the System Admin.  There is only one single user, i.e. my name and Standard user.  Without the System Admin login, I cannot do much.  *haih*

After the two hours course and after knowing what kick ass Mac OS X Leopard can do, I understand why it is THE ULTIMATE MACHINE for probloggers.  Damn!  Apple is a genius!

    Thought you just got the Vaio?! 2 accounts in system preferences or 1 account list?

    KennyP – Wait I tested everything out first but basically, a lot of things are easier done on Mac than Windows.

    Wong – In System Preferences, there is only one Lilian and that has Standard status. So, I cannot log in as System Admin, no matter what combination of names I tried.

    Yes, yes, a Mac is my dream workstation as well. I am so envious when all those probloggers posted up their workstation with a Mac, or sometimes, two!

    I used to be a mac user, but I found that the easiest solution to a computer problem was to just buy another computer. The mac shop here is a bit to far away.
