That my friends, is a picture of my completely populated address book in Mac OS X, something I have been struggling with for a week. Plaxo which has saved me before by keeping a web based version of the address book, completely trashed the Mac OS X version, putting tons of nonsense into my MacBook […]

Skype Rocks

Monday, April 21st, 2008

From jkOnTheRun: I’ll be adding this news to my growing list of “Reasons I want to ditch my land-line”.

Okay, It’s official, I am addicted…

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Anyone who spends five minutes with a MacBook Pro and OSX, and doesn’t come away absolutely convinced that they have come as close to Computer Nirvana, is either blind, stupid or Bill Gates. I had forgotten how COOL and fun it is to work on a Mac, where things simply WORK! I have been sitting […]

Vista stinks… I make to move to Mac!

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

A couple of weeks ago, my high end Dell notebook crashed, resulting in a complete format. It was my fault. I am not going to go into the ugly details, but I will say that it was the sad conclusion of months of struggling with Windows Vista. I liked much about Vista, and in fact […]

I love Nicaragua

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

The people are kind and friendly. The food is great, and the business opportunities abundant. But one of the things I dont like is the way people ride around on Motorcycles with their children unprotected. Can you believe this picture? And no, this is not a rare situation. I see it daily on the streets […]
