    I used to use Windows Parallels for work. It’s like a computer in a computer. I actually found it a little annoying because it was a pain to transfer files through to parallels. It also worked slow and made my computer slower. I quit using it after a few weeks. I decided it was easier to just use an extra computer at work if I needed too.
    This was about 2 years ago, so it may have improved since then. πŸ™‚

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE weddingsoup, but healthy choice is not so good. i usually go for homemade with the wedding, the canned is usually just broth.

    Fork in:
    1ΒΎ cups organic palm shortening

    Combine:
    1/3 cup soy milk
    1/3 cup maple syrup or agave

    Mix wet and dry ingredients together; batter should be stiff. Press dough into desire scone shape, approximately 1Β½ inches thick. Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 20–25 minutes until browned. Enjoy.

    never heard of those windows/mac stuff. although i’ve studied IT an am currently working in IT, I actually hate it, and will be happy to quit working in IT at the end of the year πŸ™‚

    that said, I actually wanted to say how funny I though the name of the soup was πŸ™‚

    windows parallel works awesomely sometimes and not so hot others. i’m not sure if this is a true statement, but i think it might take a bit of memory, so you definitely want to make sure that your computer is upgraded, otherwise it will be sloowwww. however, i’ve used it recently (6 mo ago) on an iMac and it was pretty easy to go back and forth.

    I have VM on my mac and it’s really nice- so easy to go back and forth between mac and windows. Maybe you should wait and see if you get the free laptop from the good mood blog though, i think you have a good chance:)

    I love when all my desserts go at a party, especially when they’re healthy and no one knows it!

    I am going to purchase more RAM for my mac too. I think that will help with the speed since I seem to be taking a ton of pictures everyday that eat up all of the space.

    We are required to have windows for my school’s final exams but over half of the students in my class have macs, so we all just run windows on our macs. It’s totally easy to do and works great. I haven’t transferred files back and forth, but I’m sure it’s not that hard. After switching from using a PC, I just think mac’s are so much more user friendly, and the fact that you can easily run windows means you get the best of both worlds. Good luck!

    When I was trying to convince my Momma to buy me a Mac for college, I tried to make the price as low as possible meaning I got the LOWEST amount of memory, RAM, etc. Bad idea because my compie was so slow!! My internship boss in London last year upgraded my RAM for me (woohoo) and that definitely helped a lot.

    Ecto hasn’t been too big of a problem for me (knock on wood). I usually copy and paste my posts into a stickie note temporarily before I hit publish just incase it decides to disappear like it did one unfortunate day!!

    I use Ecto, and I have had no problems with it, what problems have you experienced??

    I had Parallels, but eventually deleted it. It just makes your computer run soooooooooooo slow. I just used Boot Camp (which comes free on each Mac) to go over to the Windows side…yes, it sucks to have to reboot your computer, but I have no patience and dealing with a slow as $hit computer. I’m assuming you already have windows installed?

    You know, I really like wedding soup, but it seems like you can never find a healthy option out there- it’s frustrating. I should get my grandma’s authentic recipe and then see if I can make it a little less caloric..

    Hey Meghann – I have Parallels on a newer macbook pro and I love it most of the time. The one issue I had was that it couldn’t find the wireless internet once, but otherwise it has worked fine for all windows applications.

    I need to do this too! I’m trying to figure out how to use boot camp so I can run some applications for work from home. Anybody know if I have to buy a copy of Windows to do this?! Thanks!
