PC help for Cortex tuner

Anyone in the Denver/Boulder/Longmont area have a Windows based PC that can help me get my brand new Cortex tuner online?
My computer doesn't work and the rest are Macs and my friends all have Macs also, which Cortex doesn't work with.
I'll buy lunch, beer, coffee, whatever....
Help!
Thanks,
Matt

Forget it, I rented a laptop and got myself all set up. Lovin' the new tranny tune, first time I gave it WOT I got a chirp on the shift which I've never gotten before. Shifting is much quicker and smoother.... I'm stoked!

Garage
enjoy the new found "smart" shifting that the car is now featuring. Welcome to the world of tuning.... it only gets "worse" from here (the need to further mod to satisfy that re-normalizing need of "what is fast") LOL

thanks Zep, yes I can feel the hook getting set in...

The shifting is definitely quicker and more aggressive. I already bumped it up from 25% to 50% today.... had a fun time "testing" it out this evening
