WTF? Mirapex makes you Gamble

Posted by: on Jul 18, 2007 | No Comments

Mirapex is one of those drugs designed to treat problems you never knew you had, in this case, restless leg snydrome. Buyer beware, however:

There have been reports of patients taking certain medications to treat Parkinson’s disease or RLS, including MIRAPEX, that have reported problems with gambling, compulsive eating, and increased sex drive.

Um. Okay. Seems like a little toe-tapping would be worth it. Can’t argue with that last one though.

iPhone Wallpaper

So, I held out two weeks, but then I had to do it. I got an iPhone on Monday. I’ve got a long list of quibbles, but as usual, Apple didn’t fuck up.

Anyway, thought I’d share my fantastic wallpaper 🙂

Not only will you have the must-have phone, you’ll be the only one around sliding your finger across a goat’s tongue.

Cheap Mac Goodies: The MacUpdate Bundle

Posted by: on Jul 11, 2007 | No Comments

MacUpdate has a “bundle” which has the unique feature of unlocking additional applications depending on the number of sales.

The $49 bundle includes GraphicConverter, Fetch, iWOW, GarageSale, Cocktail, ProfCast, and Amadeus Pro as the first 7 apps. It’s a good deal at that price, but at 2500 sales (almost there), Little Snitch is unlocked, 4000 includes Intaglio, and at 9999 TechTool Pro gets included.

I have my doubts 10k sales will get hit, but even at the 2500 level, it’s a good deal for some great apps — especially iWOW for iTunes (great sound enhancer, although Volume Logic is still my fav), the geeky tuning tool Cocktail, and swiss army knife of images, GraphicCoverter (something I’ve considered essential for at least a decade.) Little Snitch will likely be unlocked, an invaluable tool for you paranoid types worrying about apps “phoning home.”

Why am I pimping it? Mostly because it’s a good deal, although I have my quibbles about these bundles and if they actually benefit developers fairly. But, providing these heavy-weight anchors at the higher end does provide ample incentive.

And all this despite MacUpdate going wingnut Christian a few Christmases ago. Yet I still use ’em, as they’re much better than that other update directory.

Craigslist: no IKEA option plz

Posted by: on Jul 9, 2007 | No Comments

For sale is now separated by owners/dealers, cool and all, but it sorely needs a 3rd filter: No Fucking IKEA. It’s inescapable pressboard land now.

At right: some sad fag chases after $15 for the 2nd week in a row.
