More crap. Less filling.

Seeing how Daniel’s Old Technology Giveaway is still running and I seem to have an inexhaustible supply of the aforementioned ‘old technology’, I’ve uploaded a few more examples of the digital detritus littering our basement. There’s not quite as much to slobber over as was in the previous load, but it should be relatively entertaining … Read the rest of this item

Osax-planation.

Mr Neufeld, the friendly neighborhood geek down the street, elucidated thus on why my AppleScript woes were suddenly vanquished to the ether: “When you removed the conflicting osaxen, your script just compiled against the system dictionaries.

Teasing the cat.

In the midst of a voluminous, teetering load of honest to goodness work, I’ve managed to steal away a few minutes to install the latest release of Panther. Excuse me while I wander off and muck around a bit… Perhaps I can find a way to present a little show and tell later on, while … Read the rest of this item

It’s not dead yet.

So apparently what happened was this… the domain name of the week took off on an unauthorized late summer hiatus all on its own.
