Some of you may have noticed a little less of me out and about. It's just that in the last few days I've been working against a network gremlin that's been especially intractable. (Damn. Another good word. Thats' like TWO, recently)
I have worked about 24 hours in the last two days - and then, when I've gotten home, Luscious and I have sat and worked even more - remotely. Kinda puts a crimp in the blogging style.
Hopefully, today will see a solution and an end to the issue.
Because, when I get home, I have stuff I want to do. And I REALLY don't want to miss anything.
Speaking of Luscious ....
I have seen a few commercials in Microsoft's "I'm a PC" series that kind, sorta, irritate me. A little. I guess it's nitpicking, really - but it's my nit and I'm going to pick it.
I have seen two separate commercials, each with one of the following lines: 1) "I'm not cool enough to be a Mac person". 2) "Macs seem to be more about aesthetics than computing power".
Somehow, especially when you consider the truthfulness of Apple's Mac vs PC commercials, the little digs and asides that these lines represent are somewhat less than honest.
Okay - my opinion ...
Everyday I use PC's running Windows, PC's running Linux, and a lone MacBook Pro running OS X Leopard. I can tell you this - my MacBook has never not done what I've asked it to do. It's never locked up. It's never crashed. It's got a great User Interface and I have NEVER had to go to the command line to fix an underlying issue.
It's easy. And I AM cool enough to be a Mac person. And I love the aesthetics of my very powerful Mac system.
Microsoft, I am flipping you the virtual flying fickle finger of fate.
