Honda Pantheon 125 Scooter

04 August 2005

You longtime readers will recall that last July I bought a scooter -- a Honda Lead. This was a model Honda released with the target of offering a 100cc scooter for the price of a 50cc. One year later, I've decided to upgrade this bike, and purchased a 125cc Honda Pantheon, pictured on the right.

What’s on your Treo 650?

23 July 2005

A couple of months ago I purchased a palmOne Treo 650. In a relatively short period of time, it’s assumed a place of importance up there alongside my Macintosh. I never realized how nice having phone, PDA and Internet access all wrapped together in a single device would be.

04 July 2005

Trends in Mac application development

16 May 2005

When I look these days at the applications that I rely on (and enjoy) the most, I note some interesting trends. The best address a highly specific need, are absent of feature bloat, almost never crash, don’t interfere with other applications, are well designed and are developed by small companies (or individuals), most of whom communicate frequently with their users via email and (especially) RSS/weblogs. </p>

Data Loss in PGP 9 for MacOS X 10.4

13 May 2005

This is what I get for being an early adopter. I figured once the beta campaign was over, the release version of PGP 9 would be safe. Actually, it *is* generally safe, but I discovered a bad bug today. Here's what I sent to the PGP Support Forums:
