Screenshot of my IBM Thinkpad running a few fun applicationsSince I recently began using an Apple PowerBook G4 as my main machine, I've been searching for ways to squeeze a more pleasurable experience from my PCs. It turns out there are a lot of developers who have devoted time and money into making PCs behave like they're running Mac OSX. Here are a few ways to get your PC looking sexy while you save up for that expensive Mac hardware: Object Dock by Stardock - This mimicks the OSX Dockbar quite well. Other Windows programs that try and mimic the OSX fast graphics display fall down on the job, but the Object Dock does a fairly faithful reproduction. Very customizable.

Sick of being sick

I'm not well. I've been sick for about ten days now. I went in to work last Wednesday and Thursday and made myself worse. In fact, I woke up this morning with pink eye. Gross. I'm not going anywhere until I'm sufficiently medicated, sedated and whatever else they'll give me. I'm sorry if you've emailed or desperately need my attention right now but I've got to rest and hope you'll understand. Besides, I've got to get better for my panel at SXSW next Sunday in Austin!

SMC cancels football program - end of an era

Via email from the President of Saint Mary's College of California - Brother Craig Franz, After a lengthy review of our athletic programs and after receiving the recommendations of a task force formed last November, the Board of Trustees, with my support, has voted to end our participation in intercollegiate football, effective immediately.No wonder they were hesitant to join the Great West Conference.
