Talking about the weather, for a change

Filed under: General — codeman38 @ 1:20 pm

It’s a week before April even starts. Yet it’s already 82°F outside. Something just doesn’t seem right here.

Am I just cursed with bad luck?

It seems that today, the trackpad on my PowerBook has decided to randomly stop working.

I’m hoping this is only a temporary thing, but neither cleaning the pad nor rebooting seems to have fixed it. At least the system works with an external mouse…

Grr. I hope I don’t have to ship this thing off for service again.

Edited 2:27pm to add: And suddenly it’s working again (though it intermittently thinks I have two fingers down rather than one). Maybe it was just excessively moist or something?

Truly a ‘Cody moment’ if there ever was one…

Note to self: Do not leave a duffel bag lying by the heater in the bedroom for a span of several months. Very Bad Things will happen when one does this. Like parts of the bag turning from black to a strange orange-ish shade. Or one of the handles literally falling off.

Seriously, what was I thinking here? I swear, I have no common sense sometimes.

At least the bag is still un-warped enough to actually close…

One less reason to upgrade to Vista

Ooh. From the Global Nerdy blog, found via del.icio.us: The free PowerPoint 2007 viewer includes the six new font families designed for Windows Vista. It can be downloaded from Microsoft’s site here.

Nice. Particularly given that the installer is a self-extracting .cab that can also be extracted on Mac OS and Linux, and indeed, there’s nothing in the license that prevents an installation of the fonts on those operating systems. ::switches his default monospaced font to Consolas::
