Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
Oh, right, I haven’t posted today, busy as I was. I spent the whole day migrating from my old Pentium III to an Athlon XP, even though I’m not that confident about using an AMD, because the performance improvement is too pleasant to ignore. My ObjectDock doesn’t lag at all, Photoshop is faster, what more could I ask for?
I took advantage of the opportunity to move to Windows XP (a real one, with a license and everything), even though it’s an XP Home, yuk (with stupid limitations, such as not being able to set true file permissions, making the system unusable outside of the administrator mode, it’s bad, but I’ll have to live with it), and boy how nice it is! I finally have ClearType, and I can’t get tired of discovering websites with anti-aliased type. As a bonus, I have semi-transparent icons (which will be interesting when I reinstall IconPackager, so I can get true OS X icons), good management of my digital camera, the ability to change network parameters without rebooting (it’s magical! ok, it’s not, I had used Linux before, so I’m not that impressed, but hey, it happens in Windows!), and… did I mention ClearType? It’s so nice. I thought that Mozilla, being Mozilla, wouldn’t benefit, but it does. Yummy. Nice. Well, doesn’t look so great in Georgia, so I might change the default font on my blog. But it’s so good. Oh, right, I forgot one last drawback: it’s a French XP, and I hate using a system in French. But it’s too nice, I have to use it.
What else? Thanks to Patterson for a cute card from Morocco (a typical moroccan street with two cats, how kawai can you get?), and thanks to Hiyami for a nice Buffy CDROM I haven’t had time to have fun with but will very soon.
Oh, and I have 30 GB free on my new hard drive! I’m ready for DV editing now! (Just gotta buy a Firewire card. Oh. And find a camera.)
