Technical difficulties Pt. 3

Along with all the hardware my brother brought me for Christmas, he also gave Mom an Apple iBook to replace her old laptop.
Now the transfer from Windows to Mac was straightforward until it came time to move all her old email across. None of the email programs I tried would import directly from Outlook Express. After some searching, I eventually found this. Which in the end worked fine, but you'd want to know what you were doing. I did enjoy working with a command prompt again, bit of nostalgia.
And if you happen to use Outlook, it's even more complicated.
If you're willing to spend the money there are programs out there that will do the whole transfer for you automatically. But I find it galling to have to buy a piece of software for a job you'll only do once. Why can't Apple include a convetor with OS X if they wnat people to switch from Windows
Oh yeah, I put a few pictures up.
And another "bloody" sunset
