as I posted on the site
They are trolls and this is what they do to get a rise out of people. If the people intercept their protest or try to impede their actions they can sue them. Impeding on their amendment rights is their trolling and they abuse it to the max. The biggest legal scam ever

I salute the man, his drive, the great things he helped bring to the world, and his ability to refuse to quit until the end.

The thing that made Steve great (which is not to say good or perfect or anything of that sort, but a man of impact and vision) was not his keen sense for design and concept, his down right vicious drive a management style, or his commitment to new concepts like digital animation, touch control, or GUI, but the simple fact that up until the end, he refused to let anything keep him down.

To put it simply, with out the guy, there'd be no Pixar. The man was, at least in terms of net value, a force for good and awesome things.

A sad day. The computer I'm posting this from is the first non-Apple computer I've owned in the last ten years, so clearly Jobs knew how to make products I craved.

That plus this leads me to think that she's more than a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Or maybe even a whole picnic short of a picnic.

That was actually up yesterday (Thursday) and apparently is supposed to just replace today's update. That said, I do find that it works. I liked that one.

It's the 'wait' cursor (or somesuch; can't remember the official name), which is usually referred to as the 'beachball of death', 'marble of doom', or 'goddamn shit'.

As I understand, it's similar to the hourglass cursor on Windows. Whenever an application becomes unresponsive for too long (either due to a crash that doesn't cause it to close, or because it's taking up an excessive amount of runtime), the cursor will turn into this whenever it is over a window of that application (or the menu bar if it's the active application).

Sometimes, usually in the latter case, the beachball will go away on its own after a few seconds. Other times, though, it signals that the application has essentially crashed, and will hang there indefinitely until the user force-quits / kills the application's process.

Despite it's bad connotation, or perhaps because of it, the beachball is one of the more iconic features of OSX. We sort of like it in a strange way. It is quite pretty, after all.

So...having finished my last book, I just dug this out of a stack of marked-down books I'd bought some time ago.

Image Kinda glad Jobs was the business specialist and not the tech expert...

By the way....has anyone checked up on Woz? He's still happy, hale and healthy - no growing paranoia, incurable terminal illness or legit beef against a large corporation/nation/ethnic group/other organization, right? Image
