You already knew this, but OmniGroup is cool.
OmniGraffle and OmniOutliner are almost criminally useful for diagramming and outlining. When you buy these programs, as you should if you ever have to work with information layout on a mac, be sure to read the manuals. They’re light, written in a [...]
Sleeping in a room with two macs – my macbook and an imac – really drove home the point that the little pulsing “I’m asleep” lights are way too bright. Especially when you have two, on different rhythms, you can practically read by them. They cast shadows. The one [...]
The other day I was ranting about Equinux’s sucky licensing terms for VPN Tracker. It appears I might have mistaken a bug for a licensing snafu, so fair’s fair, let’s talk about it.
Long and short, it appears that VPN Tracker Personal Edition *does* indeed allow you to [...]
The Worst Licensing of All Time award goes to Equinux for VPN Tracker, VPN client software for Mac OS X.
I have to manage a couple of VPNs in the day job – one largely on Windows, one on Mac. Sonicwall 3060s on both clients. Sonicwall distributes a free VPN [...]
After years of reading every article on espn.com spooging about the Yankees and every little thing they do, I decided to write a quick GreaseMonkey script (one line) that makes the articles reflect ESPN’s corporate perspective automatically and save everybody some typing by replacing every mention of [...]
So nominally I’m ahead of the curve in the class, and I should be using tonight to catch up on reworked assignments and sketchbook exercises. Right?

I finally kicked out my old linksys wireless 80211.b router, which I’ve had for about 5 years now and which was starting to badly shit the bed, disconnecting from my network and needing power-cycling every day or two, and barely trickling into the next room, and got a [...]
Firebug is a Firefox plug-in that lets you edit the HTML and CSS and so on of any web page you load (in your browser’s memory, of course, not the actual sites). Too much fun.
Just look at what ESPN.com is saying about Frobnosticate! Thank you, thank you, we love you all.
This is the best waste of time on the Mac since After Dark.
OmniDazzle – a $15 app that you can run for free for an hour at a time. It’s worth it just for the Pixie Dust. Just go download it and have some fun. (Macs were fun once, not just [...]
Did some more work on another Perl project I’d been planning for a while… I hate bookkeeping. I do work for lots of clients and I’m often late to bill them because it’s so goddamn tedious to actually create the bill. Day by day by day of time, detail, [...]
