It's remarkable in itself that it doesn't splash.

Zip Car but for bikes: http://www.bcycle.com/

This is a great idea and I hear Chicago is going to have it. I'm looking forward to it. There are days that I need a bike downtown or in a neighborhood but I don't want to have to bike to that place. For example, if I could get a bike in south loop and bike up to Lincoln park after work I would do that but I don't want to do it so much that I have to have my bike with me at work to begin with.

A decent haul from the garden this morning: red and golden beets, eggplants, cherry tomatoes, and purple beans.

Bella ate the cherry tomatoes immediately. I'll have to wait a day or two for more.

As a kid one of my favorite books was The Dot and The Line: a Romance in Lower Mathematics. And as an adult it is still fantastic and the Chuck Jones (yes the Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunnny, Marvin the Martian Chuck Jones) short film is one of my favorite shorts.

Newest HBO show is about horse racing, gambling, organized crime, and a life worn Kentuckian.

It's an HBO show So I'm pretty certain there will be sex. In the preview I saw someone drinking whiskey.

Thank your lucky stars I'm not an Austrian governess because this show would pretty much be my lyrics to "Favorite Things"

Personally, I'm shocked by how Ok I am with the concept of you as a former nun/Austrian governess. You tend to have a lot of joy in your posts, it might work for ya.

Here is the information. It was created by Urs Fischer and Christies set it up for viewing pre-auction. http://nyclovesnyc.blogspot.com/2011/04/urs-fischers-giant-yellow-teddy-bear.html

As to be expected a room in Kohler is faucet rich.

2 if my 3 sinks in my one room and a shower with multiple heads.

Nothing in room tells me the models though. I feel they are missing out on valuable advertising.

Don't like the high efficiency flush of toilet. Making me wonder if somewhere there is a town named American Standard and can I get a hotel room there?

Pan seared trout was surprisingly good. Nice light summer fare.

As a computer nerd who understand the importance of good clothing this site made me choke on laughter. A fake clothing line: Mark, by Mark Zuckerberg.

The writing is rather choppy and sometimes doesn't make sense. Is it supposed to be like that?

all sorts of issues with Smultron since I updated to Lion. Dialog boxes become unresponsive (such as, Don't save, Cancel, Save). Sometimes it opens immediately, sometimes it takes forever to open to a new blank editor. I'm done with it, especially since look and feel sucks too. Time to move on.

<Gasp/> Maybe I'll even pay for a text editor.

Any suggestions?

Dashboard is much more usable now that it is like a customized desktop that I can swipe to.

just installed OS X Lion. Some basic immediate feedback:

*Resize from any edge! Yay Apple! Why did this feature take decades?

*getting it from the appstore and doing that install was flawless -- great way to update computer!

*Facetime is good and works -- already face timed my own phone. Good timing Apple, having facetime on mac os x right when microsoft buys skype is fortuitous.

*really like the new multidesktop / expose user interface. The name (Mission Control) is stupid though.

*launchpad is mediocre. Completely designed in order to make people who came to mac through iphone and ipad feel comfortable. QuickSilver is much better for how I work.

*I don't care too much about address book because I don't use it but with Apple it is often the little things that are so well thought through -- yearless birthdays is a great idea.

*I want to have a reason to use airdrop -- it seems niffty

*The multitouch seems to be leading us down a path were minimize taking hand off of touchpad. But I prefer a world where I minimize taking my fingers off the keys.

*Fullscreen mode is pretty cool but there doesn't seem to be a standard way that non Apple written apps exit full screen mode (see Chrome and the difference between that and Safari. This might be Chrome's fault but still, it's weird)

*The new finder interfacing is nice. It still isn't geared towards super duper productivity awesomeness but it is easy to use

*the new look and feel of buttons and scroll bars and the like is nice. It looks better, which I didn't think was something I'd care about but I do.

*iCal is better now (I've used minimally) but I still prefer google calendar. Too bad I can't access google calendar from planes and such.

*unified buddy list in iChat makes it useable. I might actually use it now. I'll get a better idea of that when I upgrade my work computer since I rarely use IM at home.

*More on multitouch. The three finger swipe between desktop spaces and the three finger/thumb pinch to bring up launchpad make this much more useable! Depending on my current task it is going to become the mouse version of QuickSilver and Which. I'll still use these two when my fingers are locked to the keyboard. The reverse pinch (spread) for showing desktop is a great idea. All of these things feel so natural after doing them just once!

*autologin in safari for gmail/calendar/chat is cool but it didn't really work. Here's why. It doesn't wait for the login to be successful, so if you type in the wrong password (yes I did that on purpose because I was curious), it fails. You can correct this later in the preference pane Mail, Calendar, Chat, so not a big deal.

*The google integration is much better -- will probably use mail a lot on plane rides to catch up on correspondence.

*accented characters works like on the ipad and iphone which is nice. You know, for all those times I decide to use an umlaut!

*I just played with built in versioning in text edit. I'll be more excited using this feature when it is built into apps I actually use, like Byword (quick shout out for my favorite writing app. Writing! Not word processing!)

*Time to geek out! Terminal is much better. Drag and drop support for folder and such is great.

*one issue with terminal drag and drop that I feel Apple should have made work. I can't drag and drop an app to allow me to open a file with that app because Apps are directories in Mac OS X. Anyone know a work around?

I can't help but think this just made it harder for microsoft folks to switch to Apple and vise-versa. I'm thinking this was probably intentional.

I haven't found any yet. The two fingered scrolling, four finger pinch, four finger movement for launcher, and four finger spread for desktop all work. Three finger swipe between desktops works to.

Do you know of any specifically that don't work?
