ex machina

as you've doubtlessly heard, there were scads of macworld announcements from apple .

perhaps predictably i'm intrigued with safari , not leastly because they made the design decision to go with khtml over mozilla's gecko for page rendering. this is made all the more surprising because of the rampant speculation surrounding the motivations behind apple hiring david hyatt who is well known for his involvement with chimera .

hopefully after david gets a breather from responding to reviews of safari , he'll shed some light on the reasons behind the decision. [ update: well, if i'd have read sotto before rambling on, i'd have had all my questions answered with this and this ]

fwiw, i think safari is a perfectly adequate beta release and look forward to seeing how it evolves. my primary criticism would be the glaring lack of an import/export bookmark feature. i use far too many operating systems and rely far too much on my bookmarks to lock them in to particular platform. that said, i'm sure the feature will be rolled in sooner or later.

in other under-reported minutia apple released an officially sanctioned x11 implementation so you can really get yer geek on.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
