Good Michael Jordan Article

Invisible Motion in Video

New Eyeglasses

For years I've worn a pair of rimless Silhouette eyeglasses. They were lightweight, flexible, and worked well. I got a pair of sunglasses and a new pair in the same model four years ago, but it was time for a change. I ended up going with the Oakley Clubface frames. I didn't even know what […] Free Service's new direction. I still don't see the appeal of Twitter's been fine, and nobody I want to hear from is exclusively on

I've had this command in my nightly (user) cron file for many months now: # Flush Launch Services Cache /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/ LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user
