This Mac is Killing Me

Look- I understand the reason you folks at Apple don’t include documentation for anything. It is supposed to be intuitive.

After 20 years of using Windows, it isn’t.

And not even a pamphlet for Final Cut Pro? Bastards.

And all these things across the bottom of the screen are giving me chest pains. Why is the aol one bouncing?

And if anyone can come up with a reason why there is no knob to adjust the volume, I am all ears. Or how to insert a dvd and not have it take up my whole screen.

And before I get too negative, I do love the 24″ monitor. It is beautiful. Figuring out how to use everything, however, can be summed up in one quick phrase:


*** Update Eleventy-Three ***

Thanks for all the help, but WTF is “apple comma.” I see comma. I see no “apple comma.”

Tuesday Open Thread

Memeorandum is filled with charge/counter-charges, mostly about that idiot Rush Limbaugh, and I have meetings all morning.

The blogosphere seems less and less relevant every day. I can count on one hand the number of sites where I learn something- the rest are just braying sheep (media bias! media bias! BAAA!) and vicious partisans (democrats cause cancer!).

Consider this an open thread.

We Can Sit and Talk and Not Talk For Hours and Still Have Things to Not Talk About

Big game tonight for the Eers!

Important Piece of Trivia About Your Host: I was recently (an hour ago) caught singing along to Huey Lewis in the grocery store. I have no shame.

Thursday Open Thread

Couldn’t sleep last night, so I ended up listening/watching/trying to fall asleep while watching the reruns of the Democratic Debate (normally I use C-Span on a 20 minute auto-timer shutoff on the tv, but the debates were on, so I said what the hell). Some observations:

1.) Kucinich has no chance at winning.
2.) Obama is not ready for primetime.
3.) Edwards seems almost to be trying too hard to be the outsider.
4.) It would not surprise me at all to hear Gavel, at some point in a future debate, yell “GET OFF MY GRASS.”
5.) I still like Dodd and Richardson.
6.) Biden came off better than usual last night, and had several moments of straightforward honesty (one thing he said that stuck me as true was when he was talking about Hillary having problems getting things done because she is Hillary and comes with all her baggage from the 90’s).
7.) Nothing is going to stop Hillary.
