Hi everyone, after two Performas, three iBooks and now a brandnew, shiny, exciting and sexy MacBook Pro I've finally decided to join this forum. Reading the posts I thought this might be a nice and friendly place to drop in, so hello!

Welcome to the forums Ruhrpottbabe.

It is a nice place. There are a few scary people about, but I'm sure you'll figure out who they are soon enough anyway. [Wink]

Greetings Ruhrpottbabe.

Hello Druid. Well. there's not much to say, I'm a 36 years old female from Germany, professional translator and interpreter working freelance for business enterprises and academic institutions. After a 12-year-relationship I finally decided to accept my boyfriend's proposal and we got married on 1 February. No kids,no pets, just a bunch of Macs brightening up our life ,-)

A wise choice. Macs don't require diapers or litter boxes.

Or benedryl. Or Chloroform.

This is why my parents do not want me to be responsible for conceiving their grandchildren.
