Angela, great article on the symbols, character pallet.

It has changed a bit in Lion, now its under "Language and text" and Apple merged the Keyboard and Character Viewer as one which is cool.  Still, great article, found it useful and bookmarked it.

Peace, Frankii

Dear entertainment industry, stop making us wait for things we want and just take our damn money. Let everyone worldwide see it at once and you'll practically eradicate that pesky piracy problem.

Ah, Tim Minchin. Every word is a pleasure.

I find this an to be one of the funniest people i have ever seen. i had tickets to a concert of his, unfortunately my back played up,but a dear friend took my teens who had a brilliant time. And i was a hell of a lot envious but glad they went. This man is beyond genius. Seek him out, trust me. Try the pope song. nsfw but rather brilliant - LISTEN to the words. the wit. the sincere smart bewilderment and rage at child abuse.

Story
Tagline
Aussie in France.
Introduction

For work I'm a freelancer writer and editor at MakeUseOf.com and occasional other places, plus I sing in a trio called Lotelles on the side (and the trio also sings with the Monestier Big Band).

I also write lots of my own blogs. The more professional blogs are Net Savoir, Vegemite Croissant, Bootstrap Your Life, Stage Left Events and my portfolio is at AngelaAlcorn.com. Personal blogs and other randomness about me can be found at Alcorn.id.au, Smange, Twitter, Facebook.

I share a lot of stuff I find online. For the best stuff, check out Del.icio.us, Cloud pics, Smange's food lust, my YouTube favourites and Pinterest. Flixter will show you movies I'm watching, Goodreads will show you what I'm reading, while Last.fm will show you what I'm listening to.
