Talking about the weather, for a change

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 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::
