Terry Tate

I wonder if you could find an online Terry Tate to sack people remotely. That sounds like a good business model: "Send-a-Sack". You can remotely "send a sack" to a deserving individual for $29.95, or send up to five per month with a monthly subscription cost of $99.95. Maybe even a "Super Sacker" plan: one […]

New Plan – Get a Stopgap Mac

New plan: Buy a Mac Pro that's Mountain Lion compatible, run it for a year or so, and see what the "new" Mac Pros are like. After all, I like my current setup just fine, and since I am not sure which way to go, I'll just defer. It's a bit of money to spend […]

I currently have four 3 TB drives. Peter contains my OS, home folder, etc. It is 1.1 TB currently. Harvey contains my Aperture vault, iMovie Events/Projects, and my Video folder (ripped DVDs and old home movies). It takes up 1.7 TB. Mimzy is my Time Machine drive, so it's basically full. Roger is a clone […]

iMac vs. MacBook Pro

I want to first thank everyone who has offered their help and guidance. I really, really appreciate your time and patience, and the sharing of opinions. It probably isn't fun for you, so I'm really glad that you take time out to help me. I'm still trying to decide whether to get a MacBook Pro […]

The Mac Pro option I mentioned in my previous post is either very close to having left or is on its way towards the door. I do not think the Mac Pro is going to be updated anymore, and I think the new models David Pogue was referring to are the iMacs. I think the […]

Today Apple announced three new MacBook models. They showed new details of Mac OS X 10.8 ("Mountain Lion"), due in July. They showed some awesome new stuff in iOS 6, due in the fall. They slyly updated the AirPort Express. They also slyly updated the Mac Pro. Unfortunately, "updated" in this case means "they threw […]

Never My Silence

"I have often regretted my speech, never my silence." - Xenocrates (396-314 B.C.) I disagree entirely with this. If a friend is doing something stupid, your silence can condemn them to a life of shit. If you fail to speak up, innocent people can be hurt, imprisoned, etc.

Comfortable to be Mad

"It is much more comfortable to be mad and know it, than to be sane and have one's doubts." - G. B. Burgin Being mad for a good reason is perfectly fine, too. 😉

Buy Direct

Here's a quick list of reasons why you should buy direct rather than from the Mac App Store. And a few reasons why the opposite is true.

Three Stages of Truth

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." - Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

Wow. Apparently Amelia and her navigator were stranded on a small island for awhile, tried to survive, and ultimately perished. I wrote a report on Amelia when I was small (fifth grade perhaps?). I wonder if they'l find her bones.

Solving Complex Problems

"The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." - Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
