Hi, I'm jqubed, longtime reader (more of the comic, but the forums too), first time poster. I finally decided to register because I'm mulling over getting a Mac. I'm studying video/tv/audio production in school, and I'm starting to do freelance video work. I was all set to get going with Sony Vegas on my self-built PC (4 years old but still quite powerful) when some capacitors on my motherboard blew. Now I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I can buy a used motherboard like I had (the venerable Asus A7N8X Deluxe), or upgrade basically everything (4-year-old top-of-the-line doesn't really work with the new stuff [Frown] ). This provides an opportunity to jump to a Mac and use Final Cut, while I could still run Windows for everything else (I use Macs at school... and I still don't like them very much). There's things I prefer in each program, but Final Cut is definitely the dominant program and that becomes an advantage if I work with others.

Basically that's a long-winded way of saying I might get a Mac to do video editing and run Windows (or Linux) the rest of the time, and I'd like to ask questions of some of the more experienced geeks here in the coming weeks and months. But tonight is too late for that...

Dear BooBooKitty,

while your other treats do look mighty tasty, this cookie is not your best work.
Perhaps you should offer our new member a different sweet...one that doesn't look like something a poodle doodled?

Actually, it looks like an excellent cookie to me. A good homemade drop cookie doesn't look like the overly processed crap they sell in stores.

I'll take a batch or two (or three) anytime, BBK. [Big Grin]
