Well done. 1310 was my first score.

Probably PC. My father knows nothing about Macs and probably doesn't want to deal with any hassle. Plus, it's all I know.

You do better on math or reading?

Macs are pretty user-friendly on the first try, but PCs are still an awesome way to go - all depends on the hardware anyway. It's hard to get used to the no right-clicking on the mouses, but you can always plug in a PC mouse and it works just fine.

I did better on reading. Though the second time around I felt similar on reading and better on math, so I hope it improved. Another thing that pissed me off is that my 720 on the writing section is meaningless since colleges ignore that.

Have you used both? What do you use now?

I still need to register to take it the 2nd time. Git a 730 on the reading, 610 on the math.

Awesome with the 720 on the writing, I didn't do as well as I liked on there, so I'm glad they don't give a shit about it.

I use Macs at school for video editing and have gotten fairly familiar with them. At home, we're all PC, but I'm probably gonna end up getting a Macbook Pro or iMac for home in the next year or so.

Funny, I liked that song because it had better vocals. I thought the vocalist was the guitarist or somebody.

I had 670 on the reading, 640 on the math.

Yeah, I'm not sure how I feel about the whole PC vs. Mac thing. I mean, I'd like to give Macs a shot, but at the same time it's such a big ticket item that I'm not sure I want to risk not liking it.

True, plus you dive headfirst into the "WE WORSHIP MACS" cult. If it weren't for Final Cut Studio being the coolest video editing suite ever, I wouldn't favor Macs that much at all.

Just read a few pages back where you guys linked back to the Axver diary of my list. That's frustrating and hilarious at the same time.

That's my exact feeling on Coldplay. Intedomine begs to differ, however. Crackin' band.

Yeah, I know a guy who's obsessed with Macs, perfectly described as the cult you alluded to. He's a photographer so he likes the photo editing abilities.

I actually enjoy video production. I got my first video camera this past Christmas, and my only two projects so far were two small school videos (both of which are on Facebook). One of them was my third quarter Spanish quarter exam, which was supposed to be a group video project. Only I wasn't there the day they assigned groups, so I made mine by myself, playing two characters, accomplished by changing dress and editing out the turning on, walking up, walking off, and turning off. The other was a small physics thing with a couple neighborhood guys (my best friend, the friend everyone hates, and a third guy who's kind of weird) which we used in class to describe projectile motion.

I've always had an interest, but I don't take classes and just got the video camera, so it's not really a skill of mine necessarily.

Everyone seems to make fun of Intedomine, but I don't really follow since my posting in B&C has been mostly limited to Bowie, Springsteen, and playlist competitions. Is it because of Coldplay?

That's cool. There's some good programs on PCs like Avid or Adobe Premier Pro that are good for video editing, but they don't hold a candle to Final Cut.

I'm still unsure whether or not I overreacted at Ax's diary or not. Leaning towards the overreaction. This edition of DI put me in a shitty mood through most of it.

It's because his/her opinions are so radically against everyone else's on there. Plus, he/she loves Gin Blossoms.

Me too. I felt that a lot of the criticisms for some of the playlists were just bullshit.

Exactly.

There's a growing elitist slant to it that I don't like being a part of.
