I purchased today a stand-alone version of Windows XP (I'd been warned against Vista) that allowed me finally finish my complete transition to this MacBook. Whew. So far, it's working fabulously. My only gripe is that while most documents print fine from Parallels, the bulletins created for the church on LSB Builder do not. Somehow or other the printer is getting the message they're going on an 8.5 X 11 when it's really an 8.5 X 14, so the top part is then cropped off. Grr. I've tried various settings and have gotten nowhere. No big deal. The files are fine and I can carry them over to the Church's computer and they print superb there. Still, it would be nice to get them to work at home. I'll likely keep worrying at it. Google did not yield much help this time. Getting all that set up took much of the morning, but the afternoon was productive and bulletins were finally handed off to the amazing Joanie (Church Secretary extraordinaire!). In fact, Parallels is working so well that I decided to drop plans to install on Bootcamp. I deleted the partition I'd made for that, and so I have more storage than I anticipated having. Yeah!
