A site that breaks down the Mandarin phrases used in the Serenity universe. One of my favorites:
“WUOshang mayer, maysheen, BYEN shr-to”
“I will close my ears and my heart and I will be a stone”

After a couple of weeks with a new Dell Studio XPS 13, it was obvious that it was not the laptop for me. Don’t get me wrong, it was a fine machine, but with Vista 64-bit and my complete inability to succesfully “upgrade” it to Vista Ultimate 32-bit (yes, I tried to wipe and re-install).
So, with little hope but a “worth a shot” attitude, back to Best Buy I went. After a quick chat with the most helpful people at the Lohr Road (thanks Stefani and Ken!), I swapped the Dell for a MacBook (last of last year’s models); never had to pull out a card.
So far, I’m still getting used to the MacBook. The keyboard layout is just different enough that I keep hitting the Caps Lock key instead of “a”, and I do miss the backlit keyboard, but so far so good.
I’ve never actually owned a Mac before, so this is going to be an interesting trip.

As with previous years, the SXSW music has been released to the ‘net. And, like last year, it was up to the fans to seed a torrent of the 5 gigs of music (because it’s too hard for the organizers to promote their own event, apparently).
Well, the seeds are up and available for your downloading pleasure. Get them here.
“In one sense, all of this drooling rage is nothing more than the familiar face of extreme right-wing paranoia…”
This has to stop. Propaganda has changed to hate speech.
We LOVE the Netflix streaming service, but the Xbox fan running while watching is driving me nuts. This review isn't pushing me to buying another device, though.
$0.99 x 10 < $9.99. I know it's less than a dime, but come on. How hard is it to write a check for this?
