New Computer

Yesterday I splashed out and today I'm test driving my new iMac computer. It has a very large screen has installed itself and made itself right at home on my desk and even has a minimum of wires trailing everywhere because the mouse is wireless and so is the keypad. The one thing I'm struggling with is the German language keypad!

There are a number of small differences - like where the 'z' and the 'y' are - and these can certainly throw you off if you are used to 'qwerty' and it now is a 'qwertz' instead! But it also has all the Umlaut characters and even the 'ß' symbol, which, for those who don't know, is actually a double 's'.

So far, so good. But, boy, is this a learning curve!
