At least The Canadian looks cooler than The Canuck.

Pride
The final assignment in the class I'm teaching this semester was basically: "pick a social issue or news item and respond to it in some way using humour." One of my of students produced this.

F That
For the last year, I'd been hoarding my gold-pressed latinum to buy the ever-imminent new MacBooks and they were finally announced yesterday. Which turned out the be same day I bought a refurb'ed white and plastic MacBook.

I don't care about the aluminium. I don't give a hoot about the new trackpad. I'm not a fan of glossy screens. I could care less about the multi-touch (and I just did and will probably continue to do so at regular intervals). Here's what I care about: a similarly specified refurb'ed white Macbook goes for 250$ CDN less.

The only thing I liked about the upgrade and that gave me a moment's pause was the graphics chip. Diablo 3 is coming out probably next year-ish and well before our next computer upgrade is due so this purchase is going to be the laptop that will allow me to summon Zombie Wall. I'm going to have to rely on Blizzard's usual kindness to lower-end machines and play it on rock-bottom resolutions.

So I decided to get the latest old-school machine and spend the difference on a refurb'ed Time Capsule, which I've been eyeing for nearly as long. It will come in very handy with two laptops in the house. And I can recoup some of its value by selling my old Airport Express and my current USB-anchored external HD.

My reason for writing this is to offer people drooling over this new bejewelled and gilded scarab a way of getting (in my view) a little more bang for your buck.

Smells Like Melted Plastic
MagSafe Adapter replacements

No kidding. I just had to buy a replacement due to their crappy design. I reinforced my replacement with some electrical tape. I'll be going to get my refund.

Books and Art
Tor Books is giving away DRM-free electronic copies of some of their books.

Even if none of the books interest you, there is also a whole slew of book cover art available for download (gorgeous!).

One Less Thing to Carry
Ok, I'm officially having a nerdgasm.

Readdle is a website that will store uploaded text files in a variety of formats and re-display them to you in the browser.

Why would you want to do this? Well, I recently got my grubby little mitts on an iPod Touch (I have to admit, it's been life altering) which comes with a web browser. So:

1) Make account on Readdle.
2) Grab any books from Project Gutenburg.
3) Upload them to your readdle account.
4) Login to the website via the Touch.
5) Choose a book.
6) Start Music.
7) Sit on bus and read. (Once the page is rendered, you no longer need to maintain the wi-fi connection.)
8) Achieve nerdvana.

Slownikki
Lifehacker's Top 10 Quicksilver plug-ins

In other news, my refurbished MacBook had to have its hard drive AND RAM replaced since I've bought it. So I'm pretty disappointed that Apple QA dropped the ball on that, but I can't complain too much because both repairs were free since it's been <1 yr and done on the spot at the Apple Store in Laval.
