    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Hello,
    I just recently bought a Mac Mini 2010 with High Sierra installed. Thanks to the program called Catalina Patcher, I was able to upgrade to Catalina. And the best thing, my system works very good with Catalina on it. Anyways my question is are there any mac users here on CF?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I don’t have a Mac mini, but I have an IMac, Ipad, Iphone, and AppleWatch.
    They all work together pretty good. I like Mac because you don’t get the viruses like with a PC, and it is geared more towards the arts and or writing (Which I like). Well, I hope to use my artistic talents more for the Lord involving my Mac. But let His will be done in all things (of course).

    Well there is one mistruth you said. Macs DO get viruses, just not very often. Which is why I use Avast One on my mini so I am protected from that stuff. Anyways, glad to see I am not the only Mac user here! :)

    It’s not an untruth. I said you don’t get the viruses like with a PC. Meaning, you are not constantly bombarded by as many viruses like with a PC. That is what I was saying. I was making a comparison with PCs. I am have owned PCs in the past and they all kept getting infected all the time, and or the computer parts kept dying on me after a year or so. This was not the case when I made the switch to Apple. I have owned Apple computers for many years and have not had any issues. Yes, I know Apple computers can get infected. But it is rare. I actually cannot recall ever getting a virus to my knowledge with Apple software except this year with my IPad. But I just restored it to an earlier time and it was fine.

    I was not as clear with my wording. So it is okay. My words could have been read either way. So I gotcha. It’s all good. Anyways, I went to do mini comic tracts similar to Chick Tracts (but a little differently) with my IMAC. I am in the story process right now of writing. I want to have at least 50 great story ideas before I work on the scripts and then move on to the artwork process (Which may be done by me or by hired artists).

    I like MAC’s software interface better than PC (Windows software), too. It is more intuitive towards the arts (Which I like).

    I have an AppleWatch because it helps me with my work.
    The IPhone is also really helpful with my work.
    The IPad is nice to have as a computer downstairs when I am not in my office with my IMac. I can do more with my IMac than my IPad, but I tend to use the IPad more when home. My wife likes the IPad when cooking recipes, etc.; So they each have their own function and use that I find important.

    I have a MacBook as my laptop, and also a Mac as my desktop machine at work. It's important to me to be able to get a Unix shell when I'm using my computer, so for me the choice was a Mac vs a Linux machine. The Mac has a nice graphical user interface, is fairly easy to maintain even if you're not a Unix wizard, and supports some fun recreational software, so those things were the tiebreaker for me.

    I have a few, laptop running High Sierra, Trashcan mac pro and a hackmac at home which dual boots with Windows 10. That is getting upgraded to Monterey and the old ssd will be a triple boot with Arch Linux.

    Will be getting a mac mini to run remote builds on osx and ios apps.

    G5s not so much. The water cooled versions are known to have issues and outside of some PowerPC linux/bsd distros no modern Operating systems for it. The older ones do not even have PCI Express slots.
