The “Yearly” Update?

I honestly wish I knew why this domain is only ever looked at once a year. Maybe it has something to do with the auto-renewal, or maybe it’s my heart yearning to have the time to get back to my roots.  Life has completely taken over and all forms of ‘social media’ that aren’t 100% work related have pretty much taken a back seat. I’m still actively involved in Web Development, so much so that I have no drive or ability to maintain my own stuff. I don’t know how it’s possible to look at WordPress, Dreamweaver & Photoshop on a daily basis and not have some kind of inspiration to do something for myself but clearly coding for clients has sucked the inspiration well dry. On the home front, the last time I actually updated here I was in…

Time’s flown by…

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I’ve posted on this domain. It’s on auto-renew so I can always be sure to have it under my portfolio, but for some reason there’s really nothing going on that’s worth posting across multiple sites. Hell, I barely post on krissy.nu. I have Twitter and Facebook to thank for this, Micro-blogging really has taken over the world. My last post made note about my disappointment with Apple based on the fact that they have removed the 17″ laptop from their line-up.  I am happy to report, however, that as a Valentines Day gift from Sean I am now the proud owner of one of the remaining 17″ macbooks in circulation. It came brand new from MacMall. This company has turned into our “Go To” for all things Apple. My only complaint…

Macbook Changes

By now, anyone with an internet connection knows that Mac has “upgraded” their systems to include a new retina display for a more crisp and clean color pallet.  The downfall would be something that I wasn’t able to really find online – I needed to see it in person because I can’t ever seen to find a picture of the right side of the computer. The 15″ Macbook Pro w/ Retina display doesn’t have a DVD drive – ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  The point of laptops is to be MOBILE, with MOBILE comes DISKS (ie: a DVD collection OR program disks for oh I don’t know PHOTOSHOP! considering the bulk of the Mac industry is powered by GRAPHICS DESIGNERS of all shapes and sizes)  Why would they remove such an important feature? I can understand not having it on the…

Mac OS X Leopard

I’ve finally upgraded the Mac to OS X Leopard.  I have to say that I’m really enjoying it so far.  As far as functions are concerned it’s really no different than OS X Tiger, but visually it’s gorgeous.  The new dock blows my mind, the speed has also increased.  I didn’t lose anything during the upgrade, which is a plus, but I’m noticing that programs are also loading a lot quicker than they were in the past.  I don’t know if Leopard has anything to do with that but it seems to be working that way for me so I’ll happily take the upgrade.  Usage right now, with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and a few other programs running is only at 10% and for 1GB of ram, that’s pretty damn amazing for me.  I do intend to upgrade the RAM at…
