SCT x3 and Mac's

I'm a Mac user, I switched over from PC two years ago and haven't looked back. But you can't always run everything on a Mac... like the SCT software. To get it to work I had to use my Parallels software that runs Windows XP. I believe you can only do this if you have the Intel chipped Mac. But none the less, it works, and works great. I decided to upgrade to Parallels 4.0 today and it's much better than the older version. Basically you can run the SCT program just like you are running it on the Mac. It's like having two computers in one. I can run in my bulletproof OS 10.5 without the fear of viruses and junk like that, but still run all the PC software that is so common.

I guess I'm really posting this for the people with Mac's who don't think they can get an SCT programmer because of they're a macaddict. But it would be easier if SCT just made their software for Mac... we are taking over you know.

Yeah, get Parallels 4.0 and you can run windows. Check out their website, it's a pretty amazing program.

I just got the Time Capsule, trying to set it up now. My laptop has too many pictures and songs on it. lol.
