MacWorld has an article which details software for adding Leopard-like features to Tiger, including creating widgets from a portion of a webpage, multiple virtual desktops, iChat special effects, better searching than Spotlight, and backups.
I was looking at the NeoOffice “.odt” document icon today, and it includes a quote from BladeRunner:
NeoOffice bringing the power of OpenOffice.org to Mac OS X.

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t belive. Attack s[hips on] fire off the shoulder [of Orion. I’ve ] watch C-Beams [glitter in the ] dark near the Tanh[auser gate].

Apparently Apple’s Security Update 2007-004 may break some applications that rely on the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH
environment variable, including SQL Anywhere 9, and IBM Workplace Forms Viewer. The workaround is to edit the application’s Info.plist file.
Macintouch is reporting that the latest Mac OS X Server security update 2007-004 isÂ disabling the DNS service. Solutions range from editing the plist file to turning the service back on manually from the Server Admin application.
So if you want to donate some processor time for the good of humankind (perhaps calculating how much global warming all that extra processor use is causing), you could participate in Stanford’s Xgrid@Stanford project (interestingly the site makes reference to Xgrid FUSE which uses MacFUSE to turn an Xgrid controller into a file system, and let you browse Xgrid tasks via the Finder.
Alternatively you might want to donate cycles to OpenMacGrid, to which you can also submit research proposals if you want to get time on OpenMacGrid.
Woohoo, the Google toolbar lists this site’s pagerank as 4. I can also highly recommend clients who drink as much or more than you do 🙂 ! Not to mention Belgian Beer cafÃ©s and Leffe Brune/dark.
So, back in August 2005 I wrote about some apparent disk corruption with external firewire drives. This week I got a followup e-mail from Apple telling me that the problem is believed to have been fixed in Leopard. I hope nobody was using external firewire drives for the past 2 years or so… And I hope they’re all going to upgrade!
