Tricky clicky widget flipping.

I’ve been running Panther for a full week on my Mac at the office. Needless to say, I’m tremendously impressed by the increase in speedi-quickness. Application launches are almost nearly as fast as they were under OS 9 for programs like BBEdit. Finally. But as with any change or update, there comes the part about … Read the rest of this item

Biff. Bang. Pow.

No, I’m not talking about the band or typographic Batman trivia. The word on the street is all about Veer’s creative slug-fest, Lightboxing. Yes, this was a promotional plug for my place of employ. Want to make something of it, punk?

Regarding your recent message.

Hi there. What can I do for you today? > Your Email Client does not support MIME encoding. Hmmm. Actually, it does support MIME encoding. That’s why I received the attached images you sent me. However, it doesn’t support non-standard, single-part encoding that your email client apparent mangles the text component of your message into. … Read the rest of this item

Turn your head and cough.

This server was temporarily offline this evening while I did a bit of minor maintenance and ran the venerable Norton Disk Doctor through its paces.
