The Daily Teaser — 1-6-2013: Whisky Galore … !

You know, I would love to be in a position to gently retire my aging Mac Mini — lovingly, and semi-seriously referred to as Bruce — with a newer model.

Saying that … ?

Saying that, I do know I’ve managed to use the version of the discontinued software package, iDVD, that ship with this model to collect together all the various photos I’ve taken of my nephew, Jude, and plonk them onto a DVD.

Which will hopefully do down well.

Here’s hoping … !


Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: along with letting us know that the second edition version of Identity Crisis is getting nearer, ALSO managed to bag four out of five.

Let’s see how she — and you — does with today’s themed questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the ‘How To’, License and video …

W. C. Fields.
And with this tune … 

Have a good day …
