    The "other" Jaguar ad

    I mean the one for Jaguar cars. Anybody see this one yet? The music for the commercial is "London Calling" by the Clash. Yes, the Clash! That left-wing, anti-capitalist band that did numbers like "The Guns of Brixton" and "Julie's Been Working For the Drug Squad." On the same album with...

    VPC 5.0.4 is out

    The folks at Connectix have fixed the speed problem that was introduced with 5.0.3. VPC is just about usable again. ;) This evening I had a chance to compare it running Win98SE and WinXP. To my surprise, XP ran better, both smoother and faster. It sure does gobble up memory, though. On a...

    I checked out the Mozilla themes at mozdev.org today, and fell in love with a new one (new to me, anyway) called Sky Pilot. Stunning! If you want to see it in action, look here. :D

    M$ Spellchecker ;)

    Here I am stuck at work again, staring at this #$%^&* Dell running WinNT. So I'm surfing the Mac bulletin boards, looking for interesting, useful and/or fun info. I came across something about Mozilla that would interest one of my friends. So I went to email him a link to the webpage...

    Yesterday, my Mail.app suddenly stopped working. One bounce in the dock, and then nothing. No error message, nothing showing up in the Console. Trying to access my mac.com email, I set up a new account for it in Entourage. Presto! Entourage now also quits immediately after launching! I...
