So, there’s frequently this guy at the convenience store where I pick up my Cokes for work. He’s often there in the early morning, and he stands in the store talking loudly and incoherently to nobody at all. Sometimes he’ll stand near the counter, going on about something (something important to him, from his tone) and one of the clerks there will give me an apologetic grin… then he’ll wander outside and stand next to the pay phones for a while, all without pausing in his rambling. He disturbs me. I try not to look directly at him. That is … Continue reading →
The latest bill that Hollywood is pushing through Congress would, if they suspect you of piracy, allow them to hack your system, disable your file sharing, and delete things they don’t like. Oh, and if they delete the wrong stuff or break something else on your machine, you probably can’t sue. So, I’m thinking that next time Hollywood lobbyists do something I don’t like, I should have the right to break into their house and smash stuff up for a while. Seems only fair. … Continue reading →
I’ve been feeling grumpy all morning… but you know, it’s amazing how a few minutes of conversation with a loved one can brighten up one’s entire day. I love you so much, Rain! Thank you!

Mister Jobs just announced at Macworld NY that Mac OS X 10.2 – “Jaguar” is official, and will be released to the public August 24. My problem: It will cost $129. New GeForce or Radeon video card to take advantage of Jaguar’s high-speed graphics rendering will cost $130 – $150… less if I let the eBay mistress raininva find me a good deal. I’m not even going to talk about the cost of the announced 1 GHz processor upgrade which would more than double the speed of my current machine. Understand, I’m not whining – these are all “wish list” … Continue reading →
