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.

Powerthirst has been officially ripped off by Energy Country Ford Lincoln Mercury, in Port Arthur, Texas.

This sucks a big one for adorable sketch troupe Picnicface, who were responsible for the original and are apparently getting nothing for it. Also, dammit!, why did I not find out about Picnicface until after I went to Halifax?!

Powerthirst II: Son Of Powerthirst
I post this only because it involves puns.

It occurs to me that the Powerthirst voice sounds almost exactly how I imagine One Metre Beer would sound.

I'd Be Lion if I Said I Wasn't Excited
In one year and one week, the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics will begin. I'm planning on going to China for the Olympics, so one year from now I'll be on my way!

An interesting headline from the official website is that Beijing Olympics to use 50 Li-ion battery powered buses. I think they use lion power rather than horsepower to judge the strength of vehicle engines there.

Make universal binaries into platform specific binaries
From http://osxdaily.com/:

lipo (aptly named) is a utility that manipulates universal binaries in Mac OS X. A lot of (almost all) programs these days ship, or download as “Universal”, meaning they have binary code that both the powerpc and the intel chips can understand. But since you probably don’t care about one of the two, you want to use lipo to “thin” down your binaries.

For example if you wanted to thin the “Stickies” application to only contain intel (i386) code:

cd /Applications
lipo Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/Stickies -thin i386 -output Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/Stickies.i386
cd Stickies.app/Contents/MacOS/
rm Stickies
mv Stickies.i386 Stickies
