The iMac is here
and within 5 minutes of taking it out of the box I was happily using it on the internet! I went for the 27 inch version which didn't seem that big in the shop, but seems massive in the office; still as I get older and the eyes start to fail I can use a very large font! Being a student, albeit part-time I was able to get a reasonable discount. Now all I have to do is get used to the differences between it and the stuff from Mr Gates. I know who has the better product and it doesn't come from Seattle!
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for nearly 47 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was four in April 2017 and he now has a sister, Georgia, born on 29 December 2017.
I am ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my fifth year of ministry.
