Just updated . Nice to see the lists have been fixed to not include @ name. One of the reasons I ended up not using it.

New technology driven condition discovered: ATDDD - Attention To Detail Deficit Disorder (aka “ATD3”). No known cure for those affected…

It’s not all in my head… Lion and the Apple Black Screen of Deathâ„¢ - http://jimm.us/pVyP1r

via Echofon

The cool thing tweeted about a couple of times didn’t pan out, but it’s all good. Motivated me to start kicking some other stuff into gear.

via Echofon

Seems the Apple Black Screen of Deathâ„¢ is common on the Apple discussion boards lately. Glad I kept a working 10.6.8 partition.

Reqs Gone Wild: Calendar appts for users in *different time zones* must all show the same time. As in: “07-26-2011 11:00 AM”

Third time is a . MBP screen goes to black under forcing hard shut down to recover. Not digging it at all.

via Echofon

Hmmm. Twice now MBP screen has gone black in for no reason. Hard power off and reboot to get going again. What the heck, Apple???

Bought a set of Monster Jamz earbuds last Friday. Pricey, but such bass clarity I don’t think I’ll be able to stand regular buds again.

Got turned on to Israel Houghton today. One word… Whoa.

I know you FMP gurus are saying “So what? 6 was EOL’d *years* ago. Get over it.” I know… I’m venting because I’m forced to lag behind.

via Echofon

Add’l on 6 clipboard issue - copy source has huge bearing. Word, Photoshop, Illustrator all max out CPU use. Others, not so much.

via Echofon

Still forced to work with 6 on OS X 10.6 (like me) and it’s gawd-awful slow? Check your clipboard. More data = worse performance.

Guitarist booked gig opening for glam metal parody band… Mind you, we’re supposed to be a act. Think I’m going to pass on this one.

via Echofon

After an evening of working with , I absolutely HATE the app restore feature. Nothing you can do if OS thinks you rebooted too fast.

via Echofon

Super impressed with speed of . Running a fresh install on external connected via USB 2.0 and it’s twice as fast as internal 10.6.8.

via Echofon

Don’t understand the hubbub about different scrolling on . Naturally started using it without even thinking about it.

via Echofon

Note: If you use my app, , you should start following @YasuMac. That’s where you’ll hear about compatibility first.

via Echofon

@xebrawerx No doubt. Hoping the underlying Unix system isn’t changed too much though. That’s what’ll affect the most…

via Echofon in reply to xebrawerx

@xebrawerx Still working on installing to test. Hopefully good words this evening re: @YasuMac

Found reason for chronic back pain over the past 2 weeks: Change in desk chair 3 weeks ago with poor support. Switched back, pain gone.

via Echofon

System cloned and rebooted (faster for some reason). purchased and downloading. Will have to finish via Remote Desktop.

via Echofon

Fresh system clone started…

Unfortunately, will not be updating to Lion at the day job. Employer still relies on too many PowerPC based apps.

via Echofon

Hoping for some very good news very soon. Waiting is the hardest part.

Oh carp! Just lost a 20 year old filling while chewing a piece of gum. Naturally, my dentist’s office is closed for the weekend.

After using the Gmail Preview (Dense) theme for a week & then switching back to the default, have to say I like the new look much better.

Once again having to explain why a 10 year old FileMaker 5.5 server (~200 U, 50+ files on VMWare), is running so slow for Intel Mac users…

My favorite 3.2 enhancement: List of plugins is no longer paginated - all on one page now. Nice. Thanks @nacin & others.

Just saw this on the road this morning; a Mitsubishi coupe with the Knight Rider “Kit” sweeping red light in the grille. No, seriously…

@MacManXcom were it just me and the wife, we might have taken your route. But kids in the house must be entertained w/ their cable shows…

Happy we decided to kill Netflix account last month. If we hadn’t, for sure would have happened today. Made it thru all BSG seasons though.

@bobkous Planning for it. Once I have Lion installed, that’s top priority to figure out what needs fixing/changing.

via Echofon in reply to bobkous

Adjusted the sound post in my upright . The result: Wow!!! Amazing what a difference an inch and a half can make.

via Echofon

So that “really cool” thing I tweeted about way back in May? Yeah, it’s even cooler today. Good things in the works… Happy things…
