FREE Music from Amazon MP3

A few NCC-Mac meetings ago I showed how one can acquire hundreds, if not thousands of free tracks from AmazonMP3. However, I didn't have the direct links to the freebie pages, and I tried to show how to navigate through too many menus to find the good stuff. Well, today Amazon published direct links on Facebook to both Free Songs and Free Albums. Happy Holidays.

NCC-Mac November Meeting Reminder

The next North Curry County Macintosh Users meeting is at the Langlois Library on Thursday, November 19 at 6:00 PM.

We will be learning together how to use iChat. If you have a laptop or luggable Mac, bring it in, and we'll see how big an iChat network we can build. I suspect this may lead to serious goofing off, a perfect way to usher in the Holidays.

Just because I could...

...I installed Ubuntu Linux on a first-generation (toilet seat) iBook. Not enough RAM. Not enough hard disk. It fought me all the way. Mega-FAIL!

Just because I could...

...I installed Mac OS X 10.3.9 on a first-generation (toilet seat) iBook. Not enough RAM. Not enough hard disk. It fought me all the way. I sort-of won.
