Broadcasting live.

A big, warm hello from Vancouver and the ATypI conference. I just thought I would sneak in a quick post between sessions and let everyone know that the conference tracks are extremely fast-paced, the weather has been nothing but gorgeous, and the pre-configured bagged lunches are indeed quite edible. The type marketing panel discussion which … Read the rest of this item

Time to kick some ass.

I wasn’t trying to be rude. I meant ass in the AppleScript Studio sense — not what might also be referred to as the tuchus. It’s time to move forward, beyond the three-button answer dialog. I’ve decided that I’m at the point where I can slide right past simply tinkering with AppleScript, trying to replicate … Read the rest of this item

Blocking ads with class and style.

During one of those leisurely Sunday evening strolls through the bookmarks, I discovered a nifty article over at BeatnikPad on how to block ads using CSS selectors. The technique works by defining a series of specific tag and attribute selectors in a personal style sheet, and as described, seems to work in all Gecko-based browsers … Read the rest of this item

Another great big box of goodies.

Some of the most generous folks I know sit right across from me. For example, Issa dropped off a box stuffed full of previously loved Mac goodies for me at the office this past week. There was also a plastic grocery bag worth of floppies and manuals, but the really good stuff was in the … Read the rest of this item

Let’s get ready to Rumpus.

Many, many moons ago, I jotted down an item on my to do list entitled ‘Upgrade Rumpus’. That item ended up getting migrated from old list to new list and new list again for at least two years. For those who aren’t familiar with Rumpus, it’s the natty little FTP server that I use for … Read the rest of this item

More lemony-fresh syndication.

I finally got around to hooking up the Blogger-powered RSS feed for the Newted Community news page. Now anyone with a half decent news aggregator can slurp down the latest updates around the house. All you folks with the internet-enabled MessagePads have absolutely no excuse for not installing Eckhart Köppen’s amazing Raissa and grabbing the … Read the rest of this item

What the heck was that?

Relax, there’s nothing to be concerned about. It’s just a littleblip.com — the gosh darn cutest available domain name of the week we’ve ever had the pleasure of posting. Awww.

Drool. Worthy.

If you haven’t been fortunate to see one up close, allow Bill Noll to help loosen up those saliva glands with his slobber-inducing series of G5 images. It’s the next best thing to caressing that teasingly perforated aluminum skin in person. Via the recently discovered Macinblog

Suggestion box.

It won’t eliminate spam or protect a colony of endangered phasmids, but perhaps it’s an idea worth sharing. Every once in a while, one of the nutty visitors to this site will send in a suggestion that merits some attention. It may even warrant an off-handed mention. At the very least, it deserves a fate … Read the rest of this item
