No, not the best headline I could think of, but it summed up what I thought after reading this on The Register. Just how much rope will MicroSoft take for itself before something is done about it?
Stuff like the above is the very reason that I’m using a four year old (Win ’98) version of their operating system – some of the leverage they have with XP is truly frightening. I’d rather be stuck in the dark ages than allow an external source to be able to tinker with my computer.
Come on Macromedia – when do we get Dreamweaver/Fireworks MX for Linux?
Former workmate at CG, Mr Jess Unwin, has reported that my allegedly expertly crafted site here is a bit of a let down when viewed on a Mac.
So much for standards compliance and the greater good… you know, all that web evangelist bullshit!
I have sent a mercy e-mail to Jeremy in the hope that he, as a mac designer/developer (and all round good web egg(tm)) will be able to point me in the right direction. Sincere apologies to all Mac users affected until I get this sorted.
Tonight our new land lord paid us a visit and gave us some good and bad news. The good news is that the house is ours – they’ve taken it off the market, so to speak, and they’re not intending to let it to anyone but us. This is very cool.
The bad news is that it’s still a week and a half away from the renovation being completed. Which means our plans to move in this week are completely dashed. This, as well as being inconvenient, is very bad timing into the bargain. It means we’ll be moving stuff on the eve of my forthcoming birthday celebrations, and in the first week for ages when Fliss is working full time.
It would be pretty horrible if these two events clashed. As I’ve discovered in the last couple of years, house moves come fairly frequently. 30th birthdays do not. While I’m not exactly relishing the thought of leaving my 20’s behind, I am wanting to do it with a big enough bang that it’s memorable.
