Weird thing of the day 29 April 2005/20 Nisan 5765 (Pesah/Day 5 of the `Omer/National Arbor Day/Ninth Day of Ridvan)

Greetings.

Update on a previously mentioned story: “Men Who Claimed to Find Treasure Arrested”

Good news for today: Mac OS X 10.4 (“Tiger”) is being released today amid rave reviews. (Drool, drool, drool...)

Bad news for today: Apparently the Finder still sucks and Mail was beaten silly with an ugly stick. (You’d think they’d take a hint, dump Aqua, and restore the NEXTSTEP interface...) Also, I don’t have the cash for it in my budget and am currently scheming how to come up with it or at least get Mac OS X 10.4 for less. (And I know about the rebate Amazon is offering already.) People who feel amazingly generous and wish to donate to the Upgrade Aaron’s Computer Fund may do so, preferably before the psychoactive drugs wear off.

Worse news for today: The movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy opens today. Considering the commentary Marvin the Paranoid Android has donated to this blog, this is really bad.

Worst news for today:In order to make up for the worse news of the day, today’s weird things are good The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-related stuff:Enjoy, hagh sameah, and Shabbath shalom.
