I don't like the rear end. This is a huge step up from the prior incarnation, but it still doesn't appeal to my eye.

I use Gentoo. I cut my teeth on Slackware, then found Open and FreeBSD and fell in love with ports. When Gentoo was created, I jumped back onto the Linux bandwagon, and I still...

I lost complete respect for Jon Stewart in that interview last night. I know he is a comedian but you can treat people with a basic level of respect. To say it is CNBC job to monitor the financial institutions in this country is ridiculous. If you want to get onto...

I use Quicksilver as my app launcher. No arrows. A few keystrokes maximum to open any app, move files, take screenshots, send an email, write a note/todo, open a bookmark, run a command, etc. I've been a Windows and Linux/BSD user for...

The right mouse button makes the mouse an incredibly efficient and powerful tool in the Windows OSes. 90% of the time when people at the office ask for help on the computer on how to do something in any application, having them simply...

This is a really well-done interview, despite the frequent cutting to tape... so much of cable news interviews is talking points and yelling over people who rather than answer the question begin their response with "I think" and then go off on a tangent. Jon really does hammer Cramer pretty...
I used to watch TDS every day for a few years, but I stopped around 2 years ago. I just don't enjoy it like I used to, and I have had better things to do. However, the past week displays that there are still some people that get it. Maybe Jon Stewart isn't a highly reputable investigative reporter, but at least he can shine the light on the investigative reporting gap in financial news. And Cramer is only partially to blame here, but I respect the man for trying to...
I use Safari 4 on my MBP w/ Glim for a few tweaks and I use GlimmerBlocker to handle the add blocking (it's a proxy, so it works on all browsers). I use Firefox 3.0 on my Windows VM and Linux T61. In Windows and Linux, I find that Firefox is fastest, and the wealth of plugins makes it the best browser overall. In the native MacOS environment, I prefer Safari because it seems a bit quicker and does a better job rendering fonts than Firefox; however, its...
