Does it run RapidWeaver?

Over the past few weeks I’ve been debating the purchase of a new laptop. No, my PowerBook G4 is still chugging along, but there is something to be said about doing your homework and research on your sofa, wirelessly, rather than being tethered to an Ethernet cable near your router.I’ve been looking at the Eee PC, and the ubuntu subnotebooks because my N800 experiences this far have been

Slow, slow progress…

Painting is going slower than I had anticipated.On the plus side, I am done (or almost done) with sanding most of the re hard-to-remove paint off most of the wall. Now the hard part starts: using a heat gun and a scraper to remove pain off the door, door molding and window molding. Hopefully the weather this weekend will be sunny and I can get (most) of this done. I am looking forward to the cleanup,

Video Game Friday: Wolfenstein 3D (DOS)

Back in the days of DOS and Windows 3.1 I witnessed the heyday of Shareware on disk. Even though I owned a Mac, I could not resist deals when I went into the Staples that was next door to my dad’s garage. I saw prepackaged disks with games such as Wolfenstein for $5 (if I recall correctly). My dad and I used to visit friends with Intel 386 machines, so I always brought along the shareware that

WWDC 2008 Αντιδράσεις: Εφαρμογές που θέλω να δω...

Όποιος παρακολουθούσε το keynote του Στήβ Τζομπς ξέρει πως δείξανε αρκετά demo εφαρμογών από διάφορους developer. Να πω την αλήθεια δεν μου άρεσαν και πολλές. Εντάξει, ένα ή δύο παιχνίδια θα έπαιζα, αλλά οι εφαρμογές που κάνουν την

Observations of online classes

Well, this is the end of my second week of online classes. Thus far things seem to be going well, I enjoy the forum interactions with my classmates, but not having that face to face contact, sometimes I get the sense that some of my classmates are a-holes. They probably aren’t, but when you just read text, you tend to read into things, and often your mood at the time you are reading what they

Εδώ ο κόσμος πεινάει, και αυτοί χύνουν το γάλα!

Έχω δει μαλακίες και έχω δει μεγάλες μαλακίες. Το συγκεκριμένο είναι από τις μεγαλύτερες που έχω δει! Είδα τις προάλλες ένα δημοσίευμα στο BBC που έλεγε πως οι γερμανοί γαλακτοπαραγωγοί κάνουν απεργία επειδή η τιμή στο γάλα

Ήθελα να γίνω ποδοσφαιριστής!

Όταν ήμουν στο λύκειο δεν ήμουν μέλος κάποιας αθλητικής ομάδας. Έκανα μεν ταεκβοντο, αλλά ποτέ δεν το έκανα για ανταγωνιστικούς σκοπούς. Όταν τελείωσα το λύκειο λοιπόν, είπα να κάνω προπόνηση και να ανταγωνιστώ για την ποδοσφαιρική

I hate chain mails…

Yes, I will be breaking the chain or rather the mesh!The volume of chain emails that I get has gone down as people have matured in their email use, but I still get four or five chain mails per week. I realize that most people who send these emails our are doing so because they care about the subject, but simply clicking forward, without cleaning up the list of 100+ other recipients is simply unwieldy!
