Randomness Part Trois

Let’s see where to begin. Today, at work, I upgraded from Outlook Express to Outlook. I can’t say I’m happy. There are so many little things with Outlook that bug me. The two biggest issues being the address book (Contacts) aren’t working properly and I can’t figure it out, nor can any of the so-called […]

Blogger Beta and WordPress

I have made a decision to switch to WordPress because Blogger Beta pretty much bites ass. It’s slower and has too many quirks. All my e-mails to tech support resulted in a 100% response rate: zero. And all of the bugs remain and now they’ve announced they’re coming out of beta and going live. It […]

Hating SCO and their nasty, evil ways

I have not had much to say in public, but I’ve had lots to say in private as my friends know. Anyway, thanks to Jose, I have this link wherein SCO was officially and legally flamed yesterday by the judge and told to stuff it where the sun don’t shine. The dance is pretty much […]

The World of Smartboards

Okay, this is cool: The World of Smartboards. You really do need to watch this video — it’s only about 3 minutes long and it gets cooler as it goes along so be patient through the initial metaphysical stuff if that isn’t your thing. The technology is patented by Apple, no less. There have been […]

Symantec Lets Users Down. Collusion With Sony? Another reason to own a Mac.

I’m sure you’ve all heard about Sony’s rootkit CD protection scheme that silently loaded itself onto every PC on which one of its CDs was played and how it recently backfired quite literally. It’s been all over the news, and is, I might add, another reason you shouldn’t be using a Windows based PC. However, […]

Emoticon Idiots

I have a small peeve. It’s the rampant misuse of the emoticon 😛 Many users use 😛 as an indication of “funny” or perhaps “happy” or to otherwise indicate mirth. The 😛 emoticon signifies a raspberry, which specifically, is what you do when you stick out your tongue and blow air and spittle forward (see: […]

Installing Mac OS-X on a Dell

[This post updated 6-7-05 with additional information and citations] Yes, it’s true. Sometime in 2007, you will likely be able to install OS-X 10.5 on your crappy-ass Dell. Apple is losing the big competitive difference they once had. Instead, they’re becoming one of the pack. Apple’s sales may go up, but what made us love […]

Computer Things That Vex Me

Firefox got rid of my favourite Mozilla feature. Mozilla had many flaws that Firefox does not, but it could give me a pop-up window when my favourite sites were updated. Many go months without a change. I miss that feature. Any way to make it happen on Firefox Mac? I use MacLink Plus to convert […]

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 […]
