panther upgrade miscellania

i upgraded to panther today and my first impressions are generally positive. wierdly the install took a lot longer on my 700 MHz 14" ibook, as compared to kris' 800 MHz 12" ibook. obviously clock speed has something to do with it, but i'd be surprised if it accounted for most of the 30-40 minute difference. it's probably a coincidence, but my power cord died during the upgrade process. it's now making a faint clicking sound and not producing any juice. kris' power cord works fine.

expose' looks like it has the potential to be useful, but i'm not sure how much i'll use it. as noticed by others , expose' exposes a "hidden window in both firebird and thunderbird .

i'll pre-emptively post some links related to perl and mysql that look like they may save me a headache or two over the next few days. here , here and here .

relatedly, after a long blog hiatus ken bereskin is back in action with a panther blog that does a good job of highlighting new features.

"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.
