'New' as in not having existed previously. I try to finish food off before it goes bad.... thereby trying to avoid having anything growing on any shelves or drawers...

Yikes... hopefully refrigerated foods haven't spawned new unwanted life, and that you're okay..

2. Re: mislabeled review May 17, 2007, 11:36 Dan =0)
 
Yup.. it's the "SOAP 2GB MP4 Player" instead. Though, considering how the page is laid out, I can see how one might get confused. I at first thought you might have been mistaken since the Apple iPod ad text was larger than the article itself, so stood out more. I scrolled down to find more ads and inserts, and finally got to the "meat" of the page... and was corrected. Too much stuff cramming the top and sides, if you ask me.

Hey MF (or any other Mac user), how easy is it to transfer files between a PC and a Mac over a network? Both connect wirelessly to the router. Does it need special software or do they play nicely out of the box?

Nope, it doesn't, assuming you're using Mac OS X - not sure about OS 9 or other previous iterations.

Easily enough, you can open an SMB connection to the Windows machine from the Mac by pressing Command-K in Finder, specify the name or IP address between the smb protocol and the shared-folder name, and hit Return. The line should look something like this:

smb://mywindowsname_or_ipaddress/mysharedfolder

You'll then see a dialog that will ask you for user, password and Workgroup/domain info. Fill that out, and hit OK. Voila! You should by this point see a "Network Server"-type icon on the desktop representing your Windows box's shared folder.

The other way around, you can access your user account's home folder via mapping the drive by right-clicking My Computer, selecting a drive letter and filling out the appropriate UNC path, or by going through My Network Places to browse to the Mac (if you see it - I have had trouble going in this direction). Or, as a third option, go to the "Run" command in the Start menu and type the UNC path, either using the NetBIOS name or IP address.

You'll be prompted for a username/password at that point - unless you use the same user account and password for both machines, in which case you'll go straight to your home folder on the Mac OS X system.

MF, lemme know if I missed anything.

8. Re: so much for innocent until proven gu May 15, 2007, 16:06 Dan =0)
 
Look, it's very simple. You have three people lying in a pool reading the future and every time a crime is going to happen a little ball rolls out with the perp's name on it and another ball with the vic's name, then a team of jetpackers are sent off to make the dude throw up and then they put a halo on his head.

What's so hard to understand?

I liked the movie, but it's rather scary to think how close we're coming to something like that with this law - precogs or no precogs. Having said that, I hope everyone laughs in the government's (and specifically Gonzalez') general direction at this misstep.

this "attempted crime" legislation is going to kill a fair trial.

How in hell is it supposed to be proven? The burden of proof is on the system if it claims an individual is "attempting to pirate".

I think this was probably tossed onto the field more to scare those who are "casual" pirates, rather than whoever is "hard-core". Either way, this is just becoming draconian.

And to think that the Shrek party game (developed by TDK???) I'd gotten for the XBox way back was going to be any fun...

Thanks, but I'll pass.

1. Apple releases 79p music game for iPod May 15, 2007, 09:11 Dan =0)
 
It took me a moment after reading the headline, before clicking, to realize that "79p" didn't refer to some godawful resolution.

The game looks interesting, though.

The singular form is "hippy". Hippy->hippies, as puppy->puppies.

This English professor says otherwise:

I thought it was a bit bizarre, myself. I was sitting there wondering how this could've even been newsworthy.

Especially with the (no offense) Christian bias.

Yeah. Reminds me of the ping pong(?) ball shots video a couple of guys made... lots of takes.

Some of those glasses-throws looked edited, though...

2. Great morning May 8, 2007, 10:35 Dan =0)
 
I'm having a great morning.

Car radiator blew out while pulling into BU's parking lot - will have to take commuter rail into work at Framingham (1 1/2 hours or so vs. 30 min drive)... Can't afford a new radiator until Friday...

Found out from coworker that the building crew at the Framingham building nicked a sprinkler line on the roof whilst installing new A/C unit (or something like that), thereby flooding part of our floor with more than an inch(!) of water.

I'd say I could post on Blue's, but then I don't want to jinx myself and anyone else with fate having to unplug the site for hours. Oops!

Anywho, mini-review (mild spoilers) of Spider-Man 3 would follow at least some of what the negative reviewers had said. SST: Way too much over-the-top crying, some bad dialogue... and Kirsten Dunst really wasn't suitable for the role of Mary Jane, IMHO. She just comes off as much too saccharine for my taste. I'd thought of MJ as more of a tomboy-type character. And Tobey's Peter as an emo-ish guy who likes jazz (I thought of Jim Carrey's "The Mask" more often than not during the dancing bit), reflecting his "dark" persona? I laugh at, and not with, the characters.

One final bit: Whatever happened to Gwen Stacy? It seemed to me the writers never brought any sort of closure for her. Or, really, any of the other characters apart from Harry and Sandman....


On a computer-related note, I'm needing to replace my PC's PSU, which is currently 350W. Any recommendations for best brand/wattage for the buck? I'm not running any hardware that requires serious power:

AMD Athlon XP 64 3000+, BFG/nVidia NForce4 mobo, 1.5GB DDR333 mem, Seagate 160GB SATA drive, Seagate 40GB PATA drive (Virtual PC stuff), XTASY PCI-Express card based on ATI x700, and an el cheapo PCI 5-port USB card.

EDIT: Sorry HE (and anyone else who may've seen the pre-SST text).
