w00t!

Low End Mac has been around since the intarw3bz were run on abacii connected by tin cans and string. Having been a collector accumulator of low-end Macs since I bought a used SE/30 back in '94, I've been a faithful reader for as long as I've owned a modem.

Now I'm no longer just a reader.

My first real writing gig. It's a big day for me. :)

Congrats!

I love the picture on the first page. . . something wrong with seeing a gal with a Mac (all my hippy friends have one) and an AR-15 tee shirt. . . I will have to read the whole thing now. . .

Congrats! I'd like to echo the joy of seeing the EBR on your tee, in a photo that will be seen by multitudes who aren't expecting it - and cause curiosity in some and consternation in others.

Rob K said...

Congratulations! You deserve to be paid for your writing.

Good for you!

Abaci. Latin words ending in -us typically pluralize to -i, -ii is the plural of -ius forms.

The nitpicking having ended, congrats.

Lorimor said...

Congrats!! I love my Macs. Almost as much as I love 1911's.

Nothin' quite like receiving cash money for doing something you love.

Don Gwinn said...

I'll probably never read any of it, but I'm still happy for you!

og said...

Congrats! Hope it turns into many many good other things.

TD said...

Congrats!

Did I ever mention I have a 128k Mac somewhere in my basement?

Alan said...

Woot indeed.

I don't have an old Mac, but I have an Apple II+ I wrote papers on back in college. I believe it actually IS fossilized in the garage somewhere.

Great photo by the way. The quintessential Tam:

AR t-shirt: check

Combat Boots: check

CCA Hat: check

Girly Green iBook: check

Rick R said...

For the love of Pete, are you trying to make me spit OJ all over the screen here, Tam?

Gun Blobber said...

w00t! As an occasional user of LowEndMac myself (although not as much recently because I've got a couple of modern-day Macs), it is awesome to see you become a new writer there. Congrats!

Kevin said...

I kept telling you that you needed to become a professional writer!

Pulitzer, baby! Pulitzer!

Hobie said...

Let me add my congratulations. You've got talent...

Now, tell me if you can, why is my word verification "foqvu"? No kidding...

Sigivald said...

I'd great to see someone on LEM whose natural weight comparison object is a main battle rifle.
