Unleashing the Tiger

No, this isn’t some sex-related advertisement for some pink-lighted joint in Patpong. Nor is it the latest headline for a Victoria’s Secret catalogue. Although I’d wish for both, preferably both in the same sentence. But hey, this is still about something hard. And something soft. Actually, it’s more of a new instalment of solid software […]

Looking at a broke 2005

I hate Steve Jobs. I really do. He has this uncanny ability to judge the market. He knows what we want. He knows what we will want in the future. He rocks. He is GOD. Not satisfied that the original iPod and its siblings enjoy 50% of the digital music player market, he introduces the […]

System Meltdown

Not quite the Holocaust or Armageddon, but however I look at it, the past three days have been rather hellish to say the least. Firstly, our laggy 1.25Ghz dual processor G4 server went down like a bitch. Locking up at startup, faster than you could say “Apple Rocks”, the server just refused to boot. Entering […]

When medium, is a large not small problem

And… I’ve just made another coaster. My fourth attempt to burn a backup of my stuff has yet again, failed. Lying in the bin, in no particular order, are 4 spanking new Sony CD-Rs. Unusable.
