Applecare bites

Finally received a G4 non-DVI LCD to repair a friend's tibook today. Apple's design for the hinges is lacking any structural integrity and repairability forethought so what should be a $200 hinge repair requires the whole screen to be swapped. I'm sure the poor engineering choices were due to the designers wanting a nice thin display. Too bad Apple decided to epoxy the whole LCD mess together so you can't repair it without damaging the casing and LCD panel.

Tellme on CBS Sunday Morning

Only a few more hours until Tellme is on CBS Sunday Morning. Still haven't set the Tivo to record. Better hurry home lest I forget. I did some Tivo hacking last week so I should be able to extract the Tellme CBS episode and share it with friends via internet or video CD.

I hope to go home in two weeks. What a nice break from work that would be. Work is slowing down just enough for me to catch my breath, although I'm not sure that 8+ hours of work on a Saturday counts as slowing down.

does it ever end?

Another long tiring day at work. I've finally exceeded a 1:1 meetings to real work ratio. I think my productivity for the next few months is doomed.

Chatting with my cousin via IM who is in far off lands doing fun things. Maybe I can go do fun things. Wonder if the spooks are hiring?

Finally got a blog up and running

I'm way late to this blog game. I was finally incentivized into getting blog code running on my server for a friend's
website, so I figured I'd recycle the effort and do my own blog.
