Americas Army for Mac

I posted this yesterday on MacVillage.net. Americas Army: Operations is coming to Mac! Yea! Finally, my favorite game, on my favorite platform. Joy! I can’t express how gitty I am. My only wish is that it isn’t to processor intensive, so my fellow Mac friends can enjoy it with me.

Safari Madness

I’ve used it before, but today I gave Safari a real go. Despite the fact that some bugs exist, it does a pretty good job. My biggest complement goes to the UI. It’s clean, simple, and totally Apple. It shares the same DNA as Steve Jobs. I also like the snapback and iSync functionality. Some […]

PowerMac G5

Boy is it odd missing a week of such big news (though vacation is nice). Got to love the new G5. Serious power. Just an odd looking case. And lack of a 2nd drive bay is quite sad. Especially considering what power is behind it. IMHO I like the extendability the big G3/G4 towers provided. […]

New Backend showing signs of promise

MacVillage.net behind the scenes is starting to show signs of promise again. The backend’s core is in place, and so is the general file architecture. Now comes the hard part: Porting the existing contents over to the new architecture Redesigning the site Finishing the authentication system upgrades Deployment The 10 billion other things I won’t […]

Should I switch to Firebird/Thunderbird

Asa recently has been blogging a ton of opinions from others on Firebird, and Thunderbird. One particular post struck me. He suggests switching to Thunderbird. I’m getting somewhat close, but I need a few things first: Stability/Reliability – it hasn’t even gone 0.1 yet! Spell Checker addon (if not built in). Minimize to tray (so […]

Back from Bahamas

I’m back. Alive, and relaxed. Pretty cool place to visit and stay. Saw this amusing signage:

South America Is South Of North America

Tasked in high school to find a current news article about South America. This is what I came up with. I had too much time on my hands.

IE For Mac is no more

Microsoft is slowing pushing IE towards the point where it will no longer be available for anything but Longhorn. They announced the other day that there won’t be builds later than 6.0 SP1 for Windows, and the Mac side would not have new releases but would be supported “for the foreseeable future” (we all know […]

What’s Playing revamped (part 1)

I got around to modifying the “What’s playing” (left of the page). It now makes links out of the songs that have/are playing. Hopefully later today I will break it up so that the artist name becomes the search term (that should be much more accurate). Of course buying the song makes me some $$$, […]

Content Management Systems are good

Yes they are. I finally have selected a free CMS that will be implemented across MacVillage.net for now (and eventually on all other “Sub sites” of Accettura Media. This is great news, since it now clears the way for finally redoing the design for something more standards compliant and browser friendly. Time to put the […]
