Generally speaking, getting in shape is a selfish endeavor. We usually try to get in shape because we want to look better or feel better about ourselves. I mean, we could say we’re doing it for our kids or for our loved ones but if we’re honest, it’s mostly about self-image. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with that, although we can become obsessed with it and let vanity rule our lives, but let’s just assume that we’re not taking it that far.

GIFs are everywhere. I remember building animated GIFs frame by frame in Photoshop using that timeline at the bottom of the screen and hating every minute of it. Now, it has become some sort of art form? How did this happen? Apps, I guess. And, faster internet. Oh well, who am I to reject a novel art form?

Internet privacy and the way companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter use our data has been on my mind recently. Here are a collection of links related to those topics. At some point, I’m going to pull it all together and express my feelings on this important topic. For the time being, these are as much for me as they are for anyone finding them here on this page.

I’ve always been a big fan of the MacHeist deals. The newest bundle (nanoBundle 3) is a great little bundle of apps for $10. Unfortunately, for me, most of the apps that I would want, I already own.

If you host your website on a server that runs Plesk as the Control Panel, and you actually make back-ups of your server, then at some point you are probably going to want to access the files located on the Plesk generated back-up.

Yesterday I wrote an article about my first impressions of MacOS 10.5 ‘Leopard’. Today, I have a slightly different perspective as for the first time ever, I’ve had a failure when installing a version of MacOS X.
In this article I’ll provide a way for you to (hopefully) recover the files that are on your system in the event that the same thing happens to you.

I received my copy of MacOS 10.5 ‘Leopard’ yesterday via FedEx and promptly installed it on 3 of 5 computers that I have at home and in the office (a PowerBook G4, iMac (Intel) and a PowerMac Dual Processor G5). I also began an install on an iMac G5 which failed on the first installation attempt (and is currently in the process of installing - 2nd attempt). I thought I’d share my impressions of the new OS X (one - because I want to get in the habit of writing more and two - because I was hoping to get some feedback from other users).
