    Are you referring to the somewhat young age of many of our fellow posters?

    Or the fact that you're a dad?

    Or both?

    Yea I don't get this thread. If I were to say, "my dad bought a Mac clone cheap when Apple killed them off" would that be funny?

    are most of the ppl on this board young? u lot seem quite old to me (old as in u hold down jobs and aren't in education... no offense!).

    I'm not young, but I still have a dad. I guess I don't really think it's embarrassing for young people to live with their parents.

    I doubt my dad would ever buy a Mac, though.

    I'm "old". I'm still in education but don't get any money from the 'rents and don't live with them (thank ****ing god for that). I still have a dad, he's just not living anymore

    Hmm, maybe he means when you see "I'm trying to get my Dad to buy me a ..."

    Lots a yungins 'round these parts. That it?

    I'll add a My Dad bit here...

    My Dad shit his pants when he saw my combo drive iBook over the Christmas holidays. I burned him a few CDs for his trip home, and he couldn't believe it. He asked me about his PC doing that kind of stuff (PII 266, 32 MB RAM, 4 GB HD). In as nice a way as I could, I told he was dreaming.

    "Jesus, you helped us find that computer, why didn't you get us one of these?"

    Like they existed 3.5 years ago...

    I'm sure he'll be getting a new iMac this year.

    (BTW, I had no clue about Macs really 3.5 years ago - I actually bought one for my office too.... what a mistake that was)

    The reason why i say "my dad" a lot is because if he didn't stop me from selling my iBook or getting new Macs I'd probably be selling my current machine to get a new one all the time like murbot.

    Hey, if you did that, you'd be sitting in front of a new 600 MHz version, and have a few dollars in your pocket.

    Cheeky bastard....
