Macbook Rocks

I just bought my son a MacBook for going to college. I have been a life-long microsoft / p.c. user so this wasn't done lightly. My kids have tested my PC administration skills over the years and they finally broke me down. After XP locked up solid, I re-installed the system only to find I couldn't get my licensed version of Office to work. Who knows whats wrong. It shouldn't be that difficult.

The macbook has worked great and is a lot of fun to use. If only Battlefield 2142 worked on a Mac I would buy another for myself.

The Ohio to Erie Trail

I am doing a little volunteering for a non-profit group on their web site. You can see the mock up and compare it to the current site.

The Ohio to Erie Trail spans the state of Ohio from Cincinatti to Cleveland following lands formerly owned by railroads and canals. When complete, this trail will connect four of Ohio's metropolitan cities, a dozen large towns and numerous small villages - all done on easily accessible, paved trails, that are completely separated from highways and automobiles.

Along the way, the trail passes through rural areas, farmlands, nature preserves, and regional parks giving the adventurous a hearty helping of nature's finest. At the metropolitan perimeter, meadows and woods give way to exciting urban centers, affording the traveller a contemporary taste of Ohio's culture and arts.

Bicyclists, hikers, equestrians, and other groups such as bird watchers, cross-country skiers, and nature lovers have the opportunity to explore the natural beauty of Ohio as the trail weaves its way across the state.
