Note to self: Add “douchebag” to OS X’s dictionary so that it doesn’t get flagged by the spellchecker.
Dear God — Idiocracy was hilarious. It’s not a great movie, to be sure, but it’s a brilliant movie. It lags at times, and the narration is a crutch, but it’s the first movie in a long time that has been so ambitious in creating a world and actually making it believable. (Well, not believable, but you know what I mean.) It’s probably not playing near you, but if it is, please go see it — if only to send the message that no studio executive gets to fuck with Mike Judge.
I’m on my way to the Bay Area for a week. Shoot me a line if you’ll be nearby and would like to chill.
After Monday’s keynote confirmed that there would be no iPhone in the near future, I walked into a nearby CompUSA and walked out with an unlocked Nokia 6682. I’d been waiting for an N80, but at this point it’s only slightly more feasible than that Star Trek communicator-thingie. Tonight I finally figured out the proper settings to use it as a GPRS/EDGE modem for my MacBook Pro. 200kbps downstream! Somebody pinch me!
var keyword or assign functions to variables. (Even though I’ll probably never start a major project in PHP ever again, I enjoy using the language — it was my first real programming language, and without it I probably wouldn’t be doing what I do today.)
I’m in Tel Aviv for work and won’t return to the U.S. until July 7. It’s my first time in Israel. I got in early this evening Ã¢â‚¬â€ around 5pm Tel Aviv time, or 9am Austin time Ã¢â‚¬â€ and spent a little time walking around and catching dinner before jet lag finally dragged me into bed. Expect this tumblelog to adopt a temporarily-Hebraic tinge.
I love the WebKit nightlies, but every so often my plugins stop working entirely (Flash, Quicktime, etc.), forcing me to trash my prefs file and relaunch. A minor hassle, yes, but I’m tired of setting my tabbed-browsing preferences for the eleventh time. Shiira is, in many respects, fantastic, but I can’t seem to find an add-on that’ll do find-as-you-type. This is a deal-breaker. Why does the OS X browser landscape have to be so frustrating?
