    Told you guys, man, I don't have Dashboard. I had Tiger illegal copy for a year, then reinstall a few months ago did not go well. So reverted to original iBook G4 10.3, which, if you recall, has no Dashboard. So here we are and I am typing this on a craptacular Pentium4-M* 2ghz 512mb ram WindozeXP2pro. Widgets? Yahoo's my only choice



    *My AMD64 Venice OC'ed 2.16ghz 1GB RAM 6600GT 550mhz OC'ed is in a closet a few thousand miles away.

    Where would our lives be without looking forward to the next Apple thing, hanging off every rumour or press-release or keynote or "leaked" documents or patent forms or photoshopped mockup pr0n

    I supposed we could be out having a real life, but hey, I had dinner and drinks with friends tonight so I earned a geeky weekend.



    Also if I go for a run or swim I earn my nerding-out infront of the laptop time for a particular day 8)

    Oh, also, once you get the whole losing-your-virginity thing out of the way, one can return to normal geeking out Ummm.... okay, yeah..... no offense to any existing virgins out there. It's all cool man, sex, no sex, guys, girls, whatever. You will always have your Mac at the end of the day. Thus we worship that which gives us peace and security. Except for when there are kernel panics. Heh. Please don't take my ramblings seriously

    So... why are you counting down to a Monday instead of a Tuesday? Does it have to do with that photography expo?
  • Reply 15 of 111
    Oh yeah...RL totally sucks.

    I had one of my non-hostile forces venture out there, and he never was the same...*sniff*..again...

    I sign this non-existant contract to spending atleast 2/3 of my day in front of a screen.

    Please see...

    "MacShrine and MacOSXRumors expect the MacBook Pro to be updated at Apple's September 25th event preceding Photokina. AppleInsider is unsure whether the updated MacBook will be unveiled at that event or be held off to ensure adequate supply of Intel's Core 2 Duo Merom chip."



    25th is a Monday. Photokina starts on 26th, Tuesday. We still have no info AFAIK on the TIME of the UK announcement. Let's assume it's 10am for now. Apple has special announcement re: aperture and so on eg. MacBookPro Merom, then 26th the fair starts.



    After the UK announcement there'll be time for the American media to pick up on it as day breaks on the East Coast.



    A departure from the Tuesday am announcements but as the invite says, they wanna start Photokina a little early this year. 8)
