I just really do not know how I ever used a computer before Quicksilver. It's just so integrated in to my daily life now, it's confusing that a computer was usable before this.

New Quicktime & iTunes

Apple released version 7.1 of iTunes and version 7.1.5 of Quicktime today. Go grab em!

Mac Tip: Getting Rid of MS Office Test Drive

Since day one of having my mac, I have wanted to get the damned MS software off the machine. I tried running the Remove Office application on multiple occasions and even though the log file says it found it correctly, the application never gave me the option to actually remove it. After being pissed off about this for the 200th time today, I tried a little harder and finally got the stupid thing off my machine. What I had to do was this: 1. Run Word 2. Except the EULA 3. Quit Word 4. Run the Remove Office Application It seems that the Test Drive is not fully installed until you actually run it once. Hopefully this will help someone else who is as annoyed about this as I am (well, I guess now was :)

Apple Bug Month

Everyone has been talking about the Month of Apple Bugs that was set to start in January. It kicked off today with a Quicktime bug. I would love to track this all month, sadly, the site does not seem to have an RSS feed, so it makes following this very difficult :(

So, as it may have become evident

from all my recent postings, I bought a MacBook Pro this past weekend. 15"/2.33Ghz Core2Duo / 2GB / 120GB. It's a freaking sweet machine. Still putting lots of things on it. Still figuring out how to use it right. Been bugging the hell out of my Mac friends :) My biggest issue right now is e-mail, but that is a topic for a post all on it's own. The one thing that has impressed me the most thus far is that I can have all sorts of stuff running and it all just runs. No slow downs, no issues, just goes. Yeah, I'm turning in to a convert pretty damn quickly. More as I play more.
