So it turns out that the problem I was having with the shift key in 10.3.6 are actually tied to, of all things, Terminal! Yes, with Terminal running, the shift key in Photoshop doesn't work properly. Nor does non-proportional resizing in QuickTime Player. I have absolutely no idea why this is the case, but it […]

Has anyone given Downsize for iPhoto a look? What did you think? $20 seems a tad steep, but then again I don't find myself exporting a whole lot from iPhoto. It seems to me it should be an iPhoto plugin that makes itself available when I choose to export, not a separate application.
The fact that Photon is now free leads me to believe one of two things: That a significant update (which I was told a month or two ago was in development) is coming out soon. That work has been stopped entirely, and Photon is now a dead product. The former would be great, the latter […]
Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday dear Macintosh Happy birthday to you… …and maaaaaany mooooooooore! Today is the Mac's 21st birthday. Why, our boy is old enough to drink now!. As I sit here staring at my 23" LCD attached to a dual 2 GHz G5 with 2.5 GB RAM about […]
Here's something I'd like to do. It begins like this: set rawSource to "" tell application "Safari" set rawSource to source of front document end tell Now, at this point, I'd like to run a grep search on the source and grab every string of the form http:// ... &view=new. Then, I'd like to tell […]

For those who've missed it, Tiger Mail now features the ugliest toolbar buttons ever seen. UGH! Plus, that new "semi-metal" window type? I'm going to call it the "tin foil" window. So now we have Aqua windows, brushed metal windows, and tin foil windows. Double UGH UGH!
Will anyone be doing any real-time MWSF keynote blogging? In the past, I've logged on to IRC channels, refreshed Web pages, etc. Who will have coverage for those of us not attending? WHO!?!?!?!
I just finished reading the interview with one of the folks being sued for distributing Tiger. Desicanuk … I'm very sorry to hear what has happened to you, and hope that you can come out of this situation a little smarter and wiser. Let's get real here: they are the ones that "did" the thing, […]
I've finally gotten the chance to use a Text Factory in BBEdit, and I must say I'm rather disappointed. Unless I've missed something, I cannot simply do what I'd like to do: process text (or even the selected text) with a Text Factory. I'm moving an old site to a new site, and in the […]
JDD and I were talking, and I was moaning about Safari's incredibly slow "pizza cursor" times. They've been happening lately whenever I'd click a text field, a popup menu, and other such "form" items. It's been quite ridiculous, really - a 2-3 second wait whenever I'd move around. It'd delay actions when I did click […]
This may be the best evidence yet of an upcoming "iWork." Update: According to filings at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the "iWork" name is currently registered by Apple, with the previous registrant being IGG Software--hinting that Apple acquired (paid for) the rights to the mark. The change was made in August 2004. […]
Screw the headless iMac. I don't want it, if it exists. I still want a display (15" would be fine) with a pen-sensitive screen and a USB port for a keyboard/mouse. I want the computer to run Mac OS X, but only so far as to boot into Remote Desktop. Then, without syncing files or […]
It's amazing what a little CSS support can do for iCab. Particularly for the way the FSS site appears. I'm particularly interested in iCab - I used it a while back and it has some nice features. Bringing it back to relevancy (it hasn't been since it fell behind the CSS curve, though it hung […]
I'd like to access some Web content via a proxy (for testing some things). Does anyone know of a free or inexpensive proxy that I might use? The proxy should have a password and should let me view content via HTTP (web pages, etc.). Ideally, the proxy will report the visitor IP to the site […]
