I just noticed that BBEdit 6.1 has a nifty little ‘Set Menu Keys…’ item in the ‘Edit’ menu. This allows you (among other things) to set ‘Command-Shift-S’ to the more oft-seen ‘Save as’ instead of ‘Save to FTP’ as is the application’s default for the key-command. I’m not sure if 6 or 5 has this option, I just noticed it with 6.1
Actually, I thought this was about the right price for a larger, upgraded, pile of steaming useless shit? … kind of like IE 5.1 for Mac OS X, except its free, thank god.
I’d gotten complacent in my post-graduation life and had been feeling entirely too fond of Charlottesville and the University of Virginia and had sort of glossed over the fact that I do live in The South and that the student body of my alma mater is very heavily populated with ignorant, bigoted, homophobic, slow-witted, upper-class, identically-dressed, thick-necked, barrel-chested, cleft-chinned, ruddy-faced, party-hearty pack-hunting preppie redneck alpha-male Aryan fratboy assholes who were born with not just silver spoons but entire dinette sets in their collective sagging mouths, whose political affiliations lie somewhere to the right of Attila The Hun except when it comes to laws regarding weed and rohypnol, and whose chest-thumping machismo and obnoxiousness and bigotry and homophobia and misogyny will be rewarded in what passes for their adulthood with high-paying jobs and trophy wives and lives of privilege and pleasure and a lifelong freedom from ever having to comprehend the concepts of not being able to afford something or of not getting their way.
Hrm…. Sounds a lot like Littleton to me. Note: Absolutely ZERO relation to Columbine High School in Littleton, CO was made. I’m speaking more directly of Arapahoe High School and its surrounding neighborhoods.
For those that don’t know yet: “Schism” from the new Tool album (Lateralus) has hit the web. It’s all over Napster, but of course there are quite a few imposter songs out there. In fact, the first version I stumbled upon was bass only. The song length is about 6:45, if that helps.
Of course, it’s amazing. Completely prog rock in the way that only Tool can pull off. Hell, King Crimson is opening for them at some shows. And since you asked, I just love hearing new stuff from good bands, because it always casts their older work in a completely different light. For instance, Kid A is such a warm, comforting album in light of the dryer, more desolate Amnesiac (not dissing on Amnesiac though). To me, Aenema already feels a little different. Anyways, find “Schism” and see what you think.
So it seems Napster is *sorta* gonna stay open… or something… this is getting confusing.
I think the recording industry gets dumber and meaner everyday. Fuck, this is almost funny.
Bowing to the threat of legal action from the recording industry, a Princeton computer scientists decided against presenting a paper Thursday on how the research team he led broke security on digital music.
SDMI had held an open challenge some months ago, asking people to see if they could break the security measures.
But why are they threatening him? He did exactly what they wanted him to.
This is quite interesting… I would *love* to try it out but its in Japan only for now because the hard drive uses PCMCIA which is only part of the Japanese models. :<
Adobe has no plans at present to create a version of ATM Deluxe that runs on Mac OS X.
I think we can all join in for a heartfelt ‘Fuck you’ to Adobe on this. I mean, what could they possibly have as a reason for not carbonizing or cocoa-ing Type Manager? That’s ridiculous.
Johnson was driving past the statue recently with her young daughters and several of her daughters’ friends when the girls began to point, giggle and comment on the anatomically correct “David”.
“I didn’t even know it was art,” Johnson said. “To me, it’s just a naked man standing on the side of the road. Once the girls saw it, I found myself in a position where I had to explain what a penis is.”
Jesus christ! You mean you had to actually be a parent for once! Oh my god!
