Looks like I have a stable Mac here. It's been up for four hours, I've updated all the software on it, installed Firefox (which I'm more familiar with than Safari, although they both probably work the same way), I've moved my music over and, but for a few problems that Windows from my old computer is introducing (telling me I can't get at files that are mine, for God's sake) I'm doing fine.

With respect to that, has anyone had any experience moving files from Windows to Mac? I'd really intended on taking the old computer offline and cannibalizing the hard drives from it, and I'm afraid that, unless I keep it running....well, wait a sec, I can always take it offline, take the hard drives out of it, and hook it up to my Windows laptop, couldn't I? Unless someone knows an easier way.

Can you link them via a network?

That's how I've been moving things. Right now, I'm creating a .rar archive of the files I want to move over, and I'll move that. There's more than one way to skin a cat...of course, Lucy, who's sitting here, doesn't think much of my saying that...

Good. Because you know more about this stuff than I do and that's the only thing I could come up with.

It has definitely been a learning experience, lemme tell ya. Nothing like sitting outside the computer I've worked with for close to ten years and looking at all of the crap that accumulates over that period of time.
