R-E-S-P-E-C-T, None Of That Is Given To Me

Mac In Black?
Yesterday Apple introduced the much anticipated MacBook. It’s the 13.3″ widescreen laptop which replaces the iBook series. Apple has decided that people should now also be able to ejoy a laptop in black in addition to white, only for certain models however. It’s like ebony and ivory. The song title puns cannot be stopped!

Now I Know My Alpha, Beta, Gammas
After coming back from lunch yesterday I swung by Flickr and something struck me as being slightly different. When I looked at Flickr’s logo I realized that they have transitioned from Beta to Gamma. It looks like the change consists of mostly menu changes, and not having to go to other pages to select menu items, but change has occurred.

Want to check out the new version? Click on the picture below (it will also allow you to see my other fantastic works of art that I call photos).

Walkway To Nowhere I

Like Rodney Dangerfield I Get No Respect
Twice in the past two weeks I’ve try to play “Scoop the Reporter” and rush a story to one of the Big Blogs in hopes of getting some recognition. (the Flickr story was one of these stories) On both occasions the only recognition I received was as part of a “Thanks to everyone who reported this” mention. I tell you, I get no respect.

Down The Hatch
Richard Hatch, the winner of Survivor 1 has been sentenced to fifty-one months in jail for tax evasion. Ouch! As always you can pay The Man now, or pay him later.

I just hope that my sentence isn’t that steep if GA Law officials say that I gypped the toll booth on 400 by a quarter. The arm was raised and the green light which reads “Thank You” was on, so I assumed that it correctly read all 50-cents that I dropped into the basket. I really don’t want to lose my recently re-obtained virginity to a man. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

No George’s Again?
Microsoft’s Outlook has a major problem scheduling meetings for participants in different time zones. I found out that the meeting which I thought was to last until 7pm tonight, really is supposed to only last until 5pm. This meeting was scheduled by someone in Denver, hence the Mountain – Eastern time zone differential. Because of this I didn’t pack anything for running tonight. Perhaps I’ll show for a beer.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – in pain, I have a pinched nerve in my neck
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 26, playing Husker Du — “Could You Be The One”
Website Of The Day – If you’ve never been to The Smoking Gun, where have you been?.

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – zilch
