Thanks to 2 generous gifts from supporters of DonB! Ministries, I went and bought a laptop. The change for me is that it is a MacBook, and not a Windows-based PC. So now I have two different computers, running two totally separate types of programs. The good news is that I now can continue working even while I am on the road (which will be quite a bit in the next 5 weeks).
The reason that I went with a Mac is this: I talked with graphic artists that I know, and ALL OF THEM said that if I plan to continue doing my own photographs and web photos, a Mac is more stable (no crashes) and runs much faster. And they are right. This computer loads fast, runs fast and is very "intuitive", meaning that if I don't know how to accomplish something, I experiment with what seems right to me, and I'm usually right!
So, next time you find me travelling, ask to see my newest baby, born only yesterday.
