Goodbye Google Drive for Mac. Crashing the Finder every 30 seconds puts you on my "whatever you do, don't program like these kids" list.

Just saw another company announce yet another "iPad killer" tablet. Breakthrough hi-res display, advanced hi-res camera, super-speed graphics, yadda yadda. Oh, wait ... it's from Apple, and a new iPad. So is it a "Blackberry/Motorola/Samsung/<insert other vender here> killer" instead?

My Nexus 7 is my drug of choice.

Discovered that Apple released official Xcode 4.3 last week. Upgraded this weekend and allowed it to remove my Xcode 4.2.1 /Developer directory. Now my MacPorts won't update because all the paths are different. Doh!

Hi Robert, I ran into this problem too and figured out a solution earlier today. Here it is, if you are interested: https://plus.google.com/u/0/100382636415340600164/posts/U9mMqX9tGJu

Did my simple part. Now to write some well-thought letters.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame claims that it serves "to recognize the contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll…" Among the 2012 inductees are Guns N' Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and [ahem!] Beastie Boys. Seriously? Beastie Boys? Given that "the Foundation" still has yet to recognize performers such as:

- The Alan Parsons Project
- Boston
- Cheap Trick
- Chicago
- Deep Purple
- Emerson, Lake & Palmer
- Huey Lewis and the News
- Jethro Tull
- Joe Walsh
- Journey
- REO Speedwagon
- Rush
- Steve Miller Band
- Stevie Ray Vaughn
- Styx
- Yes

Too bad the eligibility cutoff is 25 years from first record release, or I bet they'd be inducting Justin Bieber next. What a crock!

OK, I'll say this once and for all...

Development IDE's should NEVER be developed and deployed with Java as the main backbone. Never! EVER! The JVM and the horrible memory management guarantee that the IDE will be a pig. Add to that some poorly-written plugins, and you've got a wonderful mess. Oh, but it's pretty, so I guess it's OK.

Yay! MacPorts 2.0.4 works with Xcode 4.3. Now I can officially delete my old /Developer directory.

The new Facebook Timeline feature looks pretty cool. I'm sure it will force a lot of "Dionysus-influenced" folks to clean up their history a bit.

#include <stdio.h>

void main(int argc, char *argv[])
{
printf("goodbye, world\n");
exit(0);
}

RIP, Dennis Ritchie.
