New toy

Thanks to autopope I now have my shiny new toy - a slightly used iBook G4, with which, so far, I am pretty pleased, and once I can teach myself not to hit caps lock instead of "a" I will be ecstatic. To celebrate I've splurged on WiFi access for the weekend (I'm at the UK national SF convention) so I'm not going to be quite as silent as expected.

I'd love to know why Apple made a couple of decisions; the one that particularly bugs me is that every other pad-mouse thing I've used has had a "tap it to enter a mouse click" option, this doesn't seem to do that unless it's deep in the setup menu, and I'm still no used to hitting the button below the pad. And WTF isn't there a "del" key as well as backspace? I daresay all will become clear in time. Got a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with it, but haven't used them in anger yet. Currently using Safari and encountering no problems, though I still haven't figured out how to make it full screen - no doubt it's blindingly obvious once you know how.

Anyway, here I am, assimilated by the Apple collective. Expect me to be asking a LOT of questions over the next few months...
