A new dining room light

Its a new light, courtesy of IKEA, which means it was a pain to install, looks unlike anything from Home Depot and maybe requires a sacrifice from the ideal. By which I mean we’d much rather have it a bit higher off the table, but I think it makes for a nice intimate glow for everyone sitting at the table. Making it go any higher will mean cutting wires and hoping for the best.

But whatever, I’m loving the light fixture, and though this picture doesn’t do the illumination justice it really is intimate at the table.


Now I'm a real alumni

They finally got me. Some sweet Junior called me up and asked for money to help new students pay for the outrageously high price of going to school there. I've passed on giving anything for four years now, but I just couldn't pass it up this time. It would be irresponsible for me not to help student out who genuinely need the assistance. Tuition has broke 30k - and thats just for a regular bachelor of arts and a place to stay on campus. It was in the low-mid 20's when I went through. Ouch!


Apple now worth more than Dell

What more is there to say?

Na nana na nana!


MacWorld '06

Umm, was that frackin' fantastic or what. Not only did Apple kick ass in the last quarter - selling 14M iPods, but they've been busy working with Intel. You have to check out the new Intel iMacs and ofcourse everyone is ga-ga about the new MacBook Pro. Who can blame you, they are amazing laptops.

But obviously I just got a new iMac a few months ago - so there won't be any new hardward changes for me for a little while at least. So what excited me the most was certainly the software announcements. I already pulled out the credit card for my own copy of the new iLife '06.

I can't wait to get my hands on iWeb - just what I've been waiting for. iPhoto is going to be fantastic to use and play with. You can bet I'll be sending out a few personalized postcards and maybe a calendar or two. Hehe!


Sci-Fi Friday

Does anyone else feel the end of Stargate SG-1 is just around the corner? It doesn't have the same excitement anymore - I'm betting this will be its last season. Atlantis must have gotten all the good writers, because its kicking butt.

Battlestar Galacticca - why haven't I been watching this from the beginning?! Its frickin' good - the drama they built up in this episode is nail-biting. Damn!


One more day to wait... today

We just have to wait until this evening for the second half of the seasons for Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, and new to my Tivo but not to most of yours, Battlestar Galactica. Ooo! I can't wait.
