  • New is not always better

    I have had a couple experiences lately where new versions of software I have been using simply didn’t cut it.  The older versions did a better job of it and I wound up removing the new versions and restoring the older ones. One example is Adobe Reader 7.0 (formerly Adobe’s Acrobat Reader).  I am curious […]

  • Dial 0800-too-much-caffeine …

    I had a good laugh earlier.  I was walking back from my preferred lunchtime hangout, a Seattle Coffee Company shop in an Exclusive Books store nearby, when I noticed one of their vans in the parking lot of the parking garage.  I snapped some photos of the back of the van.  Take a look, you’ll […]

  • Christmas comes early at Apple

    I am sure I am not the only one who has seen what is going on at Apple.  I saw a link off Scobleizer to the Apple mini.  I checked it out and, my hat, it is a sexy little box! Update:  Apparently these two little guys are going to arrive in South Africa in […]

You explain yourself well. An […]

  • Blogging habits

    I have been knocking off a bunch of emails today (as you can imagine I just might in the course of a work day) and I found myself looking for a blockquote function in my mail program (Novell GroupWise if you must know).  I realised how used to the blogging interface I have become.  Blogging […]

  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

    As I mentioned last night, we went to see Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow last night.  If you haven’t seen it already I recommend it.  We had a great time and loved the way the movie was presented.  It is an adventure movie set in the 1940s.  Jude Law plays Sky Captain, the […]
