The install was fairly straight forward but unfortunately there were too many things that turned out to be a hassle. I worked out some things, but then decided the hassle wasn’t worth it. I’m […]

Garage Cleanup

Give a guy some time alone, some work to do and a new piece of software to play with and interesting things are bound to happen. I found Gawker yesterday which is a great little OSX app that lets you make time-lapse movies with the built in or external webcam (or both). It also lets […]

@dryas Here’s a list of Mac apps. A couple of them are time trackers. 12:53:46 One of the big problems with the flooding in MB is ice jams… I’m no expert, but I’m sure even the Canadian army has some explosives. 15:06:25 Saw a job ad wanting a PI expert. Not sure what that […]

EeePC 1000HE shipping for all you lucky orderers. (via @engadget) 08:26:02 The Dell Mini 10 is now at the top of my list (if the $$ ever materializes for a netbook). Via @engadget again. 08:57:39 I wonder if OSX will run on the Mini10 as well as it does on the Mini9…. 08:58:41 […]
