New Tilley Hat

X-Men III, Mac software for sale, hot night tonight

For the second time this season, I turned on the AC in the car. For the first time, I turned it on in the bedroom. It's not so much the heat as the humidity. I didn't move to Minnesota to be warm.

X-Men III is lousy. A good moment or two can't make up for the rest of the mish-mash. Ian McKellen is the best part of two movies in a row (X-Men III and The DaVinci Code). The first X-Men movie was great, the second okay, and the third just doesn't work. Oh well.

I brought my Mac G5 in for maintenance, a year after I got it. I'm generally good, but the third party RAM didn't pass the hardware test. Nothing seems to work better without it in, so I may reinstall it myself and run my own diagnostics. In the meantime:

For Sale: Non-working printer w/cartridges plus Symantec software for older Mac OS's.Collapse )
On the plus side, I upgraded iLife and might actually be able to make my podcasts work, and add pictures and urls and stuff too. Whee! More work for which I don't get paid!
