iSight Camera

Damn. I finally hooked up and used my iSight. It’s awesome. Everybody run out and get one right now. I tested it with my friend Tom ::waves:: for a few minutes but he had to go do homework. Eeeeewwww.

Just as I was getting ready to sign off, I get an IM from Josh who also has an iSight. Wow. Josh, who I haven’t seen in over two years, and really haven’t had any meaningful communication in at least three years. It was interesting, that’s for sure. We showed off each other’s pussies* and played around — showing off things around the room, papers, flyers, computer parts, etc. It was kind of fun, even though it probably sounds silly. It made me realize how much I miss him. Or, as he would say, cool beans. I still hate OS-X because Apple has sacrificed form over function. Sure, it’s beautiful to look at it but it’s not nearly as intuitive as it used to be. The Mac’s single best feature has always been if you wanted to do something, you just did what came naturally (drag, drop, click, etc) and Apple, in one evil, fell swoop has taken away a lot of that. Things just don’t work they way you expect any more. OS-X is also unspeakably sluggish with some applications, and this machine I have is blisteringly fast. Other applications don’t behave that way so I’m not sure what that’s about.

By Tuesday evening, I will be making a very special post about the Florida Panthers to my mailing list. Normally, I only post to my mailing list but I’m going to post a little teaser here as well as the appropriate Usenet group. It’s being posted solely for your amusement.

I still think Rob Barry’s got a cool blog. Him and Wil Wheaton keep me entertained with their blogs. I know there are many blogs, and I’ve peeked around but there’s nothing to top the visceral excitement of being part of someone else’s life when you feel like you know the person albeit from afar.
