    Really? That's interesting - by a really weird sequence of events, I've ended up getting one as an anonymous and super-generous gift, and I've been reading a lot about it. It seems a number of people are reporting battery life under the 7 hours advertised, although to be fair, only people with issues are going to bother reporting anything so I guess that's a somewhat skewed sample. d:

    Oh right, only just noticed that I could do that. Looking good now!

    How are you liking the rMBP?

    I suppose if you don't keep media on there, it's not an issue. I could handle keeping movies and ISOs elsewhere, but music is one of those things I want direct access too. Plus, it gets a little fiddly when iTunes is pointing to stuff that's not always there...

    Good to hear you're enjoying it. I daresay there'll be a 13-Inch variant in 2 years time when I upgrade from my 2010 MBP. In the meantime, I'll get myself a 120GB SSD and Optibay adaptor near the end of the year to give it a bit of a boost.

    I installed the trial and love it so far! But how did you get it to display your CPU usage as a percentage rather than as a graph?

    That screenshot is ridiculously big. Also, if your eyesight is good, there's a hack to allow 1:1 scaling, so you get the full benefit of the extra real-estate. :D

    I'm guessing that 500GB HDD is external? Only have 256GB space would be difficult for me and I hate external drives.

    Hey dude, I just saw your screenshot in the Desktop thread. Which app are you using in your menu bar and how did you get it to display your time in words?

    That's pretty cool? What do you do with any spare time? (if you have any?)
    What's your MSN? I would like to chat with you sometime via email.

Posted inTechnology, ‎Actual bloggery
After reading through some of the newer threads in my main section (computers & Technology) I have come to the conclusion that the smartest thing I can do at this point is simply not post. THis is because most often the 'popular' threads consist of those touting their choices in tech and trying to best each other. Simply put, trying to out-fanboy each other. So I feel it's appropriate to post an excerpt of a lovely article I found on Gizmodo that explains just what's going through the mind of...

As at least one person may have noticed my activity has become rather lax as of late. I feel that I should at least explain some of this so that no one thinks that I've gone and hurt myself or completely deserted you all. Truth is that I decided to take a couple classes this term at a local college and they've been taking most of my focus lately. I do plan to be around, but I probably won't be as active, and there is a possibility that I'll just be able to pop in from time to time to give a little...

Ok so I realize that the HGSS blogs are probably overdone, but this is seriously one of the best WTH moments I've had in the games. I battled Morty earlier today and since my Pupitar (yes I traded myself a Larvitar egg to use as a starter) got the curse from Morty's gastly, I had recalled it and healed it using Togepi as stall.
Morty sends out Gengar and begins with hypnosis, which fails. I begin healing Pupitar but before I could do more than apply one potion, Gengar uses Mean Look! Great![/sarcasm]...

On Wednesday January 27th, 2010, Apple Inc. Announced a new product dubbed the iPad. This device was designed as an intermediary device between a smartphone and a notebook. Most tech savvy and business people use both a notebook computer and a smartphone of some sort. To paraphrase from Steve Jobs’ speech, somme people have thought that a netbook is the great intermediary device. Something that’s not as big as a laptop...
