typing from a mac

(originally posted at

yes, i bought the powermac g3 tower from work. i made reference to it before, but now it's all mine. :)

upon finding that opera 6 wasn't out yet for osx, i switched my default browser to omniweb. but i missed tabbed browsing so much that i've switched again... this time to mozilla. i'm not as impressed with mozilla's tab feature as i was with opera 6's. tabbed browsing is an absolute must if you're an uber-surfer (imagine that 'u' had two little dots above it; i'm too lazy to look up the escape sequence).

oh well.

more program woes... i miss trillian. i use AOL, MSN, Yahoo, and ICQ to keep in touch with people. so i found a program called Proteus. it LOOKS great. problem is, it doesn't work. for some strange reason, it would connect to each of the services and download my buddies or friends or whatever... but it wouldn't actually show them as being online. so i couldn't send anyone a message. moreover, when i told the program to search for any updates... it found one and downloaded it... although it turned out to be the same version as the one i already had. boo! what's more (yes, there's more) the splash screen while Proteus is loading tells me "version 1.6something" while the About... menu tells me version 2! at least it *looked* like pretty software. sigh.

i finished selfish gene today. liked it so much i added the extended phenotype to my wishlist. i'm moving on to reading a book about marketing/branding called No Logo.

Oh... and Cornelius is playing at Bowery Ballroom August 9th. I'm more than excited. Will you be there? Let me know.
