So Mac OS X Tiger has been released and all, but why does the powerbook page on store.apple.com still say it comes with Panther and iLife ’05? Does it really still not ship with Tiger? C’mon apple, get with it. I guess either way, I’m just gonna order on Monday. On a side note, my […]
It’s amazing how much faster a Terminal Server connection is over VNC. Sure VNC is cross platform or whatever, but the difference in performance is too much to ignore. But then again, I guess Citrix or whoever has had paid developers working on it for a long time… Fortunately, vnc from an X server works […]
I’m on an XP client and trying to connect to a remote W2k3 server through an ssh gateway. Set up SSH so that a local port (not 3389) is forwarded to 3389 on the server.

First saw this on the Mainichi paper, there seems to be a discrepancy between how the FM-level talks were reported in Japan and by Xinhua.

I would like to express my dismay in regards to the violence in your protests. I fully believe you have a right to protest, and I agree with your cause (heck I’d march with you if I felt the issue was being dealt with reasonably), but I am dismayed because your actions are not helping […]
Looks like Nikon might update their D70. Though from what I read, a leaked manual indicates only a minor upgrade, still I guess its worth waiting for. According to PC watch, its supposed to be announced on 4/20.
My dinner tonight: Brown rice with Nattou. A side of enoki miso soup. A few edamame for finishers. Should balance out that huge burger I had for lunch. Yay for Nattou! (wikipedia)
Sold my barely used PDA for 500 bucks. Sold most of the parts for my extra PC. Cash transactions are convenient, yet annoying. Workstation 5 rocks as well.
