    Hello All,

    I don't have an iPad yet, so I'm in the process of locating any and all information about this great tool. At present, most of my efforts are focused on PCs and Windows but I still stay in touch with Apple products.

    I had my first introduction to the Macintosh platform using the Lisa computer. I became a member of the Apple User’s Group located in my area. I still have my Apple Iic, my Mac with OS 7 and they still work. As soon as I can get enough money, I plan to purchase an iPad and an up-to-date Mac w/ OS X or XI if that’s the OS at that time. My experience with computers goes back to IBM mainframes, PDP-8 and PDP-11 and Digital Equipment’s VAX computers.

    My interest includes traveling, golfing, skiing, watching football and basketball, seeing tennis matches, downhill skiing and golf tournaments. I enjoy fixing and troubleshooting PCs and I try to find ways I can use PC to solve simple everyday problems. I enjoy going to plays, stage shows and the movies. I enjoy listening to music that span over many genres, I sing in my church choir and I'm learning to play piano and bass guitar.
