How do I get a simple answer to a simple question (?)
Because for the last 15 minutes I have been cussin’ Apple with everything in my repertoire, explaining why I don’t own an iPod, an iPhone, or an iPad.
I want to know how to change my default font in Snow Leopard . . and lock that in, so i don’t have to manually do that every fricken time I log on. Is that so difficult ? I have tried a myriad number of search terms to lock onto a specific thread which discusses that . . with no luck. i come up with all sorts of related bullsht, and no answer . . : >) . . as I bite my
tongue in half . . .
