No WiFi. Talk to each other.

I’m a big fan of WiFi, but I totally get this. We pretty much have electronic-free dinners at home with exceptions when we all feel the need to look something up during a discussion.

The Lion Wakes Today

Posted on


I just upgraded to Lion (aka Mac OS X Version 10.7) on Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Since I didn’t get to do any real study ahead of time, I have been learning on the fly as I try to keep using my Mac for the day to day things I do. As I stumble on to differences, things to do and fix or deal with until they are fixed (especially third-party applications), I’m keeping a list. I’ll keep updating this entry as I find new things. Since this is driven by my personal activities, it is quite haphazard and not a replacement for various resources around the web on preparing for Lion and Lion features.

Upgrade Considerations:

Things I Like:

  • Spotlight search results Finder window allows changing view, including to columns
  • iOS style spelling suggestions
  • Select and open multiple attachments from a Mail message

Things I Don’t Like

  • Application associations with file-types are lost

Things That Are Different

  • Up and down on scroll ball on mouse are reversed from Snow Leopard

Things That Have to be Updated



xkcd: Computer Problems


Not having computer problems today but I liked this summary of life behind the screen.





Orkin for Dinner?

You can’t see the scrumptious pictures of cockroaches and other delectible insect pests that played in the animation loop for the Orkin ad. Fortunately it only played through the critters once. Love that ad placement algorithm…
