Migrated to WordPress. Blog is now at www.rcboyce.com/blog, which you should be redirected to in about 10 seconds (assuming you're reading this as an HTML page). Which reminds me, new Atom feed is at http://www.rcboyce.com/blog/?feed=atom.

22:02 or so. Not too bad, although I kinda wanted to get under 22.
Big Show tonight.

tech stuff

Local root own for OSX
Known since March and still no patch... 10.3.9 apparently doesn't fix it, so Tiger probably wont help either. Just don't let anyone touch your computer.

Also, nice new cluster over at DCL. Mmm Xserve G5s.

adobe + macromedia

Adobe to Acquire Macromedia in $3.4 Billion Stock Deal
Holy crap. This has the potential to be great (Adobe combines Fireworks and Photoshop features, integration with Flash, Dreamweaver, Illustrator) or suck (Adobe kills off Macromedia Suite in favor of its own products). I'm pretty optimistic about the situation though. Maybe it'll mean that future Macromedia apps for the Mac won't be so poorly done.

Actual McDonalds ad. Proving there is such a thing as too much love for a hamburger.

frist post

Yeah, I haven't posted in a long time. So what? There's not too much to talk about. I did pretty well at YMCA States and JO's. Third quarter is over and I think I passed most of my classes. Ooh, it appears that Gmail now does formatting. Fun. Web Developer toolbar for Firefox is proving rather useful.
Musical is next week. 4.5 hour rehearsals every day next week won't be fun, though I suppose the pit orchestra gets a bit of down time (in whcih I plan to do homework).

Netscape 8

Netscape 8 is based on Firefox 1.0... With added suckiness. There are some cool features, especially in tab options, and the ability to switch to IE rendering is pretty convenient, but the interface... That program is painful to look at. I'd probably use it if it weren't ugly in every aspect possible.
