I have a class that is held in a Mac lab. The Macs do not like me apparently. Today I downloaded a .zip file and tried to unpack it. It unpacked the first file, then locked up. So I clicked cancel. It told me it was cancelling, but never did anything. So I tell the program to exit. Nothing. So I say screw it and leave it to rot in the background during class. Then I go to log out but it tells me that unpacking program is still open and I need to close it first. Um...yeah. So I try to shut down. Same message. At this point, I'm like, screw it. I just start pulling out cords until the thing turns off.

Side note: Is there anyway to make a window fill the entire screen? I can't seem to get it to expand over the bottom bar and icons and the right side of the screen for some reason. Or how to make the programs not transparent. It's disorientating when Adobe Photoshop is nothing but a toolbar.

You can make the dock disappear until you roll over it.

And making the web page larger, just drag the bottom of the page to the size you want (bottom right; little triangle).

Macs are kind of hard to get used to, but you can always run Windows on them (the new ones, at least)
