Biosness Mess

Last night I couldn't work on my current animation project, or anything else for that matter. I replaced my corrupt DVD writable with a new one, so that I could back up my data and after the install, I couldn't get past the Bios screen. Fortunately, today, the problem is solved. I had to reset my Bios back to the default configuration. Whew, I did not like imagining having to call Discreet (oh oops, the new name is, Autodesk Media and Entertainment) for my re-install authorization keys, and I can't even comprehend dealing with the zillions of plug-ins I have. I would say "so it's back to the drawing board" but to be perfectly accurate, I'll say "back to the viewports".......

Just talking about it is making me want to cry. Though, I have a mac and for some reason, it acts like a PC half the time. Though, there is a reason for that. I kinda rewrote the BIOS on my Dad's PC and somehow that made it kinda smoke. So, I'm not allowed near PCs. Which animation program do you use?

That's interesting (and funny that you should mention) because I've heard so much about Mac stability, especially when it comes to graphics. I have used both Mac and PC, but I've only personally owned Windows systems. With all of the crashes I've experienced I started seriously thinking about the Mac, but, and this leads to your question, I use 3D Studio Max which does not have a Mac version - so I might not have any alternatives, at least for now.
