Windows servers are represented on Leopard as crappy 15″ CRTs with a BSOD. LOL!!

Leopard is up!

October 27, 2007

Screw the non-believers, I got leopard running on my MacBook Pro. Heh. Check it out:

Is Leopard really worth it over Tiger?

October 27, 2007

Been reading up on it prior to making the leap to Leopard, and there were many whose computer crashed and burned after installing it. Apparently it had something to do with certain incompatible apps loading on startup, and they had their machines stuck on the blue startup screen with the mouse pointer for.. a good few hours. Nothing they do can get the machine out of that state and even better, when running the installation DVD again, the drive could not be installed to! They apparently had to format and do a clean install of leopard, losing all their files. I’m not too keen on that, especially on my iMac where I have a lot of very precious data. With no 500gb hard drive to backup to, I can only risk my MacBook Pro, which doesn’t have a lot of data, but which I can throw into my iMac for safe keeping.

Another thing is the look of leopard, I don’t really fancy the way it looks. Yeah, stacks is cool, spaces will be useful, cover flow everywhere, but the overall look of Leopard is.. ew. The translucent menu bar, no more rounded corners, super FUGLY folder icons, ugly shade of blue on the selected menu items.. oh and yes.. FRONT ROW LOOKS LIKE ASS. I believe it’s the exact carbon copy of the Apple TV interface, which honestly isn’t very nice. The 3D effect of zooming in and out of front row is GONE, and it just fades in and out. Really sad.

So I’ve decided to go with Leopard only on my MBP, as I believe spaces will be productive for me, but will stick with Tiger with my iMac. Tiger just looks better, and I don’t need spaces here with a 24″ screen. I don’t code on my iMac anyway. I would wanna come home to a pretty interface after a hard day of school or what not.

Cool app of the week!

October 23, 2007

Introducing an app I’ve been looking for the past few days: an app that can display the song my iTunes is playing on my menu bar, the nifty nice neatish area on the top right of all macs. It’s really simple, but it’s not easy to find a free one that looks good (the other I tried needed me to pay and had really crappy anti-aliasing; the words were jagged!) and I stumbled upon this today: QuickTunes. It’s completely free under GPL and it does a little more than just display the song title on the menu. Check the shots out:

Pretty much explains what it can do. Not like I really need them, but it’s cool to have. It has a floating window which I won’t show here because I already have sizzling keys to do that for me.

October 19, 2007 this is your riff with my triac this is your riff mixed in with the triac this is the same as mix2 but it has my normal setup mixed in as well, sounds like shit tho, dunno why

Kinda takes up too much space and I don’t think anyone is interested in reading them.. If you want it back just holler on my cbox and I will add it back!

The feeling of being a guitar geek is coming back..

October 15, 2007

Finally the feel is back.. I wanna do stuff to my guitar setup once again. I’m planning on having my solo boost switch on my guitar, followed by a looper that switches 2 of my 3 overdrive pedals in and out so I can switch between clean and distortion easily, and cutting the body to have more pull up on my floyd. All these hopefully done by next june, wish me luck..

Thanks to all that came!!
