Happy old man

01 Feb 2006

To balance the curmudgeonly talk of the last two posts, here are a few things I’m really happy about:

Kilts! I wore a kilt for the first time last weekend, and I am smitten. For a start if you have a rather more portly frame (such as myself) its quite forgiving. Also, while it was a freezing weekend, I can confirm that underneath all that tartan, there is a zone of warmth. AND, you get to put a dagger (Skean Dubh, sorry) in your sock. AND you get some where to put your camera at last (in the Sporran of course).

I did the whole traditional regalia, except for keeping my pants on. There are no photos sadly.

AppZapper – Yes, to uninstall an app in OS X you can just drag it to the bin, but there are still other files associated with it – preferences, Application Support files and caches. Looking through my Library folder its littered with the remnants of apps that I’ve tried out and dumped, and this mess annoys me. One technique is to do a search using the app name, but this can still miss some files. Now I just drag the app to AppZapper and ‘ZZZZap!’ The action of zapping is childishly pleasing one! For someone like me who is always trying out new stuff, this is a boon.

Salling Clicker – Although I’ve had this for a while, its only now with the Mac Mini as (primarily) a jukebox, that this has really seen some use. Beauty!

Segpub – I don’t get paid to pimp Segpub, or receive any referral fees, but I do get excellent service, uptime and support. Thanks for everything you do Jeremy, thou truly are a Creative Bastard.
