Crunchy Phish

Posted by: on Jul 10, 2003 | No Comments

Going to see Phish tonight at Shoreline. My friend Carolyn managed to snag some good tickets. Sure, they’re a bit crunchy, but the shows are usually fun.
I went to a Phish show once before, in like 1995, at Griffith Park in Los Angeles… I don’t remember much of it, but then again, God only knows what I was on.

Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) Preview

Posted by: on Jul 8, 2003 | No Comments

ThinkSecret has posted Inside Panther: Part 2, including images from the Finder and other system components. The images that were included with Part 1 of the series were yanked down after Apple’s lawyers came calling, so get a peek at these while they’re still there.
Some of the more interesting screen shots include the new Print & Fax prefpane, Exposé (1, 2, 3, 4), Connect to Server window, Classic Menu, and closing minimized windows in the dock.

Rather than write anything interesting, I’ve been wasting my time adding fluff!
So, now there’s themes and an open external links in new window toggle. Look for them in the side bar under “Themes” and “Options.” Requires JS and cookies, and you Safari users will find the link targeting option missing, as it doesn’t seem to work despite it throwing no script exceptions.
Update: fixed the Safari thing…

RIAA stupidity

Posted by: on Jul 6, 2003 | No Comments

Last month, the RIAA announced it would go after individual file-traders on P2P networks. The result? An increase of 10% on Grokster and Morpheus. Villianizing casual computer users is not likely to endear anyone to the record labels or cause a stampede to the CD aisle, especially after they were just busted for years of CD overcharging and forced to give token refunds. However, if this current campaign sees any success, it will be short lived: the P2P landscape will simply change to work-around the RIAA. Believing it will stop is naive.

I thought I’d seen a survey for everything, then I was sent this link. So how do you stack up?

No more Acura CL

Posted by: on Jul 5, 2003 | 5 Comments

022715-E.jpgAccording to Motor Trend, Acura will discontinue the CL model, the coupe cousin of the TL, this fall. Being the proud owner of a 2003 CL MT Type-S, I’m sorry to see it go. They may bring it back in 2005, but if they don’t, I’m gonna have to start looking at the G35 (gack!), with it’s Espresso-maker cum ATM interior. (Pop-up nav systems say bad design, not geekchic.)
However, the new 2004 TL sounds like a winner:

Bush: mentally ill?

Not like I needed proof, but here it is from the mouth of a professional…

“Dr. Norman Doidge, professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, has identified among the telltale symptoms of fanatics: an intolerance of dissent, a doctrine that is riddled with contradictions, the belief that one’s cause has been blessed or even commanded by God, and the use of reinforcement techniques such as repetition to spread one’s message.
Sound like anyone you know? George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle — come on down!”
