. Is it your intention to take over David Pogue's job? .
Got way better things to do. Like using spotlight and looking up images on my hard drives. Over ten thousand. OK, add a slight modifier. Wow is all I can say. I'm finding movies and images that I have not seen in years. One can make the search results huge in icon view (a view I never used until now.) You can also play the movie right there in the search results.
On Monday I try to open a spreadsheet in Numbers which has 14 million lines. There must be limits to what this thing can do. It will surely choke on that.
Tonight I try it out on my MacBook Air. It has gotten a bit pokey. I am hoping that the delta speed difference is greater on slower boxes than on this 8 core box.
Ahh, fudge. BBedit is not responding. Snow Leopard killed it even though Barebones says that BBedit is compatible.
On Monday I straighten that out. My photoshop is bolluxed also but I never got a clean install on that so I am not surprised. Nothing else seems busted.
Just tried to find something that broke and the only thing that did was my F-16 after I buzzed Isle of Shoals and then slammed into Mount Agamenticus in Maine. I had not tried that in some time but I seemed to have much more smooth controls over the rudders and such. Flying at 800 feet was easy except for getting a little nauseous banking and correcting too much.

Only because I pulled the boot drive from my dead G4 and use it to boot my Intel Mini. GUID partition map should be the default on an Intel machine if you're using the drive it came with. The internal drive in both my Mini and the wife's are GUID.
And I cannot function without it. Not worried. Barebones will fix it on Monday if I can't figure it out. I may have actually choked it myself by trying to have it open a ten million line file. It never recovered.
I can't live without Photoshop.
I can. I need to do one or two exotic things a year and photoshop has been walking the edge for me for years. I hate spending more than ten minutes a week screwing with someone's idea of copy protection. Photoshop crosses the line and I have had a tantrum or two. I can find something else.
But just in case I'll have one hard drive with 10.5.
And I'll be certain that a few computers in the wetlab stay at 10.5 except if this server lock works like it has I might have to desingate and lock down computer to run a few things.
Are you flying X-Plane?
No, the flying in Global Earth is technical enough. I really don't play computer games but that is close enough. It would be more amusing if I had some cannon or SAM hanging off the wings. And X-Plane is no game. I could say the same thing for it. I tried it a few times and I really wanted to fly into Snowmass after taking off from Aspen and torching the plaza with some 50 caliber.
