Todays SUnday 1/17/00 so a week ago on NBCs Thillagy, was a Imac Paradise (Ironically, because I wasn't home I recorded and have this "event" on tape) First on THE PRETENDER (Norius for it's use ofMacs and there features). Jared Uses a very nice Blueberry iMac to check the records of a doctor who's commiting insurance fraud. I don't care for the PROFILER any more since the lead was changed. But I saw several Macs while I was fast forwarding to SNL, where they did a whole skit where a Office lab was set up with five dazzalin' Strawberry iMacs (I really enjoyed it more, when theskit opened up with a guy saying" Do you think these systems are Y2K Compatible?" when Another guy (Computer admon) walks in and says: DUh, we only use Macs which have always been compliant, Hello!" This brought a tear to my eye). Did anyone else catch this?

I caught the SNL you're talking about...I thought that skit was great! I wonder if I could get a copy of that skit some how? It's worth archiving!

I can go one better. The company I work for does the Macintosh technical support for Saturday Night Live. Most of the writers and staff for SNL use Macs.

I know the guy that the skit is based on. He's a trip.
