Mac OS X 10.4.1 commentary: Man, the Finder still sucks. It’s way too easy to get a rainbow pizza cursor for no apparent reason. There is also no apparent way to back out of a search in progress. If someone knows of a good, preferably free/open source, Finder substitute, please let me know. (And I just know Junior Crabtree is going to be sarcastic enough to suggest using the Terminal for everything, so don’t go there, please.)
Desktop-cleaning update: Yes, this had to happen sooner or later, but I'm keeping it short by choosing two articles which I deem sufficiently weird. “Saudi Columnist: We Must Discuss Why We Hate the Jews” expresses bafflement at Muslim anti-Semitism, noting contrary historical behavior all the way back to Muhammad. “What Arabs Really Think” reports on a survey which claims the Arab street’s opinions of what is wrong with their society do not conform with government propaganda.
Since today is Doughnut Day, I am breaking away from out recent Star Wars theme and presenting the somewhat relevant “NEVER SAY TO A COP...” instead as today’s weird thing. You can find it included below. Enjoy.
NEVER SAY TO A COP...
1. I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer. (OK in Texas)
2. Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.
3. Aren't you the guy from the Village People?
4. Hey, you must've been doin' about 125 mph to keep up with me. Good job!
5. Are You Andy or Barney?
6. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer.
7. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you?
8. I pay your salary!
9. Gee, Officer! That's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too!
10. Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.
11. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around. That's how far ahead of me they are.
12. When the Officer says "Gee Son....Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with,"Gee Officer, your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?"
