so we're getting ready to upgrade to tiger (OSX 10.4). the paramour pointed out that we have some proof-of-purchase coupons that came with our last upgrade. i found them on the desk (how organized is that!), but they don't have numbers, and need to be filled in with (way too much) info. so i searched all over apple's site to find out under which circumstances they are applicable, and how much we can save with them. couldn't find anything. also, apple's store design -- much too small a font, guys!

google and blogs to the rescue. it turns out that there are upGRADES (such as from 10.3 to 10.4) and upDATES (such as bug fixes between such upgrades). most people download those updates online. for those people who don't have broadband, they can take those coupons to an apple store and get a free CD with the updates (or i guess mail them in to have the CD shipped to them).

ok, totally useless for us. fine. but it would certainly be a good thing if apple printed that on the bloody coupons.

so tomorrow i get to buy new software, if at list price. good ghod, leaving the house already again! and i had barely hunkered down. :)
