Delicious Library 2

Saw this on Chris' blog and thought I would share it as well.
Pretty cool to be able to access a virtual library and read anytime you want.

Momories of computing the old way

Way back in me youth I bought me a computer called the VIC 20.
I learned to program in basic back then and then it hardly even worked. You had to save to a cassette, and loading was just as slow. My VIC 20 introduced me to a great annoyance called the syntex error. That used to bug me, whenever I would be typing in a program (most programs were so small thats how you loaded them), I would get a syntex error and it would make me nuts. After I gave my VIC 20 away to a friend and waiting quite a few years for another purchase, I bought a starion pentium tower PC with windows 95 on it (in 1998 on Superbowl Sunday) Where the first thing I did when I got it home was to totally jaz it up and had to use the reinstall disks to get it back. Within a year I had to do that 4 times. Then I purchased windows 98, then Windows ME (the worst operating system Microsoft ever made, and I think that they owe us an apology for selling it to us), and then I go XP which I still use. Ain't got enough RAM for vista, and I hear that vista is rivaling ME to see which keeps worst operating system ever status. So far Microsoft is batting a thousand with good to bad O.S. systems. I think I will upgrade my macs ram to 2 gig and run parallels on it and be happy with a good chunk of hardware/software that really does what it should. (Go Mac!)

smartfade program for mac

It is here!!! Finally a program for the mac that helps in setting up the smartfade ml. go HERE to download the zip file that has the program in it. it is from smartfades website, if you want to go fins it yourself go to WWW.ETCCONNECT.COM
and in the search box just search for the ksyword mac and it will be in the results box.
This is still in beta form and so far you can't just plug the board into your mac to activate the program, but maybe you can save it to a flash card and upload it into the system?!?, haven't read that far into the users manual.
