Criminals: Get a Mac

"If you're a bad guy and you want to frustrate law enforcement, use a Mac."

QotD: Present

Question: If you were given $50 and told that you had to spend it on a present for yourself, what would you buy? Paying your phone bill is not a "present" for the purpose of this question. My Answer: I'd buy a pair of golf shirts or pants. I, being the geek that I am, […]

PureJPEG for Mac OS X?

Joel (on Software) points to a little CLI app for Windows called "PureJPEG" that removes a bunch of unnecessary data from JPEGs to reduce their size. I'm wondering if there's something like this that I can run on Mac OS X, CLI or Drag-n-Drop or whatever. I typically just save all of my JPEGs with […]

QotD: Ugly

Question: What's the ugliest site you still visit regularly? My Answer: I don't visit a whole lot of ugly sites. The truly ugly ones are usually hidden behind an RSS feed, like this one. 🙂 Perhaps the ugliest site I visit regularly (because its RSS feed has only headlines when I last checked) is […]

15% Discount on a Mac

Want a 15% discount on a Mac? Get in touch with me privately. This one's for people I can trust at least a little, so, apply only if you're in need and trustworthy, eh? And not a student. You guys get your own darn deals. 🙂

Adium’s Push/Pop

A feature I truly did not know existed, as explained by David Clark (edited a little): Your friend sends you a message (i.e. "How do you properly kill an NSTimer?") You start a long-ish reply (i.e. "You have to invali") They send you another message which requires a shorter response (i.e. "Is it cold there?") […]

Chris on Survivor

Okay, I have two things to say about tonight's Survivor. One: Ding dong, the witch is dead, the witch is dead, the witch is dead. Two: If Chris were smart, he'd immediately drop the baggage that is Twila and Scout and form an alliance to go to the final three with Eliza and Julie. But […]

QotD: Hygiene

Question: What's your worst hygiene related bad habit? My Answer: Well, working from home, sometimes it's really easy to forget to shower. One time I went three days between showers. I mean, you don't sweat much typing right? And heck, I often forget to eat and sleep too. You are encouraged to answer the Question […]

Canadian iTMS

The Canadian iTMS is open, and songs are only $0.99. In Canadian dollars. That's like, what, $0.75 in US dollars? I guess that's Apple's way of saying "sorry it took us so long, eh?" P.S. I just found out that the only songs available in the Canadian iTMS are those by Celine Dion. Bummer, eh? […]

Savin’ Some Money!

My high today? Finding out that I could ditch the Sports package on my DirecTV account because, at some point in the past six months, The Golf Channel moved into their regular channel lineup. That's $144/year I now have to spend elsewhere. Plus, I moved my golf blog and its accompanying (and new) golf forum […]

QotD: Word of the Year

Question: What was your word of the year? My Answer: Carey. Love. Erie. Love. Carey. Take your pick. 🙂 You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

Erroneous Click-Throughs

Sometimes, in Mac OS X, I click or double-click in a window only to see a window behind the front window come forward. Sometimes I haven't even moved the mouse, and when I hide the app that's sprung forward, I find my mouse pointer easily surrounded by 100 pixels in each direction by the other […]

Anyone Know Japanese?

If you're interested in helping us translate PulpFiction to Japanese, please contact me - erik:freshsqueeze:com (you should be able to figure that one out). We'd like to include the Japanese translation in the 1.2 release (mid-January or so).
