Wednesday, April 25th, 2007

Notes: How to fix a lack of flash video sound in OS X

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

Today, all of a sudden the audio for flash video died in all browsers on my G5 iMac at home. Restarted. No go. Call the computer and "fucking piece of shit" while clicking on everything but changing nothing in my system preferences. No go. Restarted again. ...

Hexen Lives On OS X (and so does Heretic, Doom and others!)

Sunday, March 18th, 2007

Who says Macs and OS X don't play games? Sure they don't play some of the new ones, but I have news for you: Those new games are just rehashes of the classics. By "classics" I mean of course: Doom, Doom 2, Hexen, Heretic, and Duke Nukem. ...

Quinn Is Back, Now With ‘Snarkiness’

Monday, August 28th, 2006

Quinn is truly the Minesweeper counterpart on the Mac. That one addictive game that while using that OS I have to make myself not play it in between tasks. (For the uninitiated, Quinn is a beautifully designed port of tetris to OS X.) The difference being that ...

A while back, Dan asked for a little technological present and he later got it...kinda. Ok, now its my turn to get stuff I want. Remember my failed attempt to con Apple's (.Mac subscriber only) Backup app to work on my iBook? I failed. Twice. Even after ...
