Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-09-02

  • That Parallels 3 to 4 upgrade I left running overnight? Still at the same spot (50%) as when I left. Argh… #
  • @rachelbancroft Chocolate cake for breakfast? Man, I should have done that! What was I thinking? πŸ™‚ in reply to rachelbancroft #
  • I think I might give up on this Parallels 4 XP upgrade, and just build a new VM under Snow Leopard. Hmm. Windows 7 tiem nao? πŸ™‚ #
  • Here I go! Installing Snow Leopard, after giving up up my Parallels upgrade and building a new VM: http://twitpic.com/g3wgg #
  • One Reason I’m Posting More – I Finally Learned to Two Finger iPhone Type http://post.ly/3etF #
  • I’m back after the Snow Leopard upgrade. Fiddling with the new settings. Glad to finally be here. πŸ™‚ #
  • One happy Snow Leopard surprise: VASTLY improved proxy “auto detect” support. Safari and Firefox finally *JUST WORK* behind our proxy. Yay! #
  • Believe it or not, this is the first time I’ve really used Apple’s Mail.app. Now that it has Exchange support, I’m trying it as my primary. #
  • Does anyone know of a Mail.app plugin that moves the reading pane to the right (a la Outlook) AND works in Snow Leopard? #
  • It occurs to me that using the iPhone in space/zero gravity would be a total PITA. The accelerometer would go nuts. #
  • @r Oh, come on. Coverage in outer space can’t be *that* much worse than it is here on earth. *rimshot* πŸ™‚ in reply to r #
  • Just reported a jam on . My mood: happy. http://bit.ly/LCvq0 #
  • Heads up: TV Hwy EB at Cornelius Pass Rd. Is CLOSED due to a BIG wreck. πŸ™ #traffic #pdxtraffic #
  • TV Hwy in Beaverton is CLOSED from SW 198th to Cornelius Pass. HUGE wreck. Side streets are clogged. Anyone with web access have details? #
  • Apparently a crash knocked down a power pole at SW 209th and TV Hwy. I live less than a mile from there. *sigh* #
  • Wha huh? http://google.com is redirecting to http://google.cn for me. Did Verizon Fios give me a Chinese IP address or something? #
  • Just downloaded @siracusa’s epic 23 page Snow Leopard review as a PDF for later perusal (one of the benefits of being an Ars subscriber). #
  • BTW, the PDF of the Ars Snow Leopard review is actually *65* printed pages. I won’t put it on dead tress, but might xfer to Kindle to read. #
  • @kegill @siracusa’s Mac OS reviews for Ars are legendary, and worth reading every word. Have been for years. πŸ™‚ in reply to kegill #
  • I’m told that big crash today at 209th/TV Hwy was a car that crashed into a telephone pole then *exploded*, taking out power in the area. #
