I've been using Macs since 1988, and owned my first one, a IIcx with a 40mb hard drive, a year later. I've owned five of them over the years, not counting two I had at work before they went to Windows 95. I currently have a Macbook Pro, and use it for word processing, design, and audio recording & mixing. I'm particularly knowledgable in Word, Garageband, Logic, and Macromedia Freehand--yes, I'm one of those users who won't switch to Illustrator until I have to.

For money, I'm a freelance editor--I make help writers make their books better. The pay isn't great but the work is fun and fulfilling.

I'm also an experienced touring bicyclist; I get audio engineering gigs; I'm a guitarist, songwriter, and performer; and I paint from time to time.

@NicolasBarbulesco - That was a typo; I wanted to avoid tying up a USB port. Typo fixed.

comment Can I set Chrome to start Spotify from weblinks?
No, the screenshot is from the Spotify application, and I'm talking about plain weblinks. Like this one: play.spotify.com/album/6316qgms0cRSXanY9meBSQ
