Snow Leopard!


Installation is a challenging 2 steps. At $25, that's $12.50 per step, or not much more than a bowl of champon at Sakura.

1) Insert disc.
2) Customize.

I hope that's not 2 much!

World's Worst Elevators

The world's worst elevators received accolades in the form of Occupation Safety and Health Standards Board meetings. This was to honor the elevators for refusing input upon button press, breaking down as a regularity, and making elevator rides the adventure they weren't supposed to be. Notices were posted informing all affected employees that they have the right to party hearing regarding the permanent variances inflicted by the elevators.

Evidently affected employees had another idea in mind. And when these elevators get their just desert, who wouldn't want their just dessert?

Another reason to get the iPhone

KatamariPhone! But I'm just getting Snow Leopard for now...

JavaFX buys me Snow Leopard?

I was very happy to learn that the JavaFX Coding Challenge awarded On The Mark an honorable mention. At $25, it's not quite the $25,000 first prize, but it does have its perks. Namely, that $25 is none other than the price of the latest incarnation of Mac OS X: Snow Leopard.

"But wait," you say, "isn't it $29?" Ahh, yes, but at Amazon, it can be had for the same price as the JavaFX honorable mention! Sun and Amazon must have teamed up on that one, right??
