Google AdSense: You suck
Like a lot of Web publishers, I depend pretty heavily on AdSense to generate revenue and pay the bills. A good server isn't free. So imagine my horror when, on Thursday, the numbers dropped between 50 and 80%, depending on the site. Something is horribly...

Cooling off my MacBook Pro
I made a post on my personal blog about my MacBook Pro hacking to cool it off. It's surprising how hot it got when running Visual Studio of all things. I mean, VS spends a lot of time basically just editing text, but it's weird how the CPU tends...
Adventures in HVX200 workflow with my MacBook Pro and Final Cut Studio
The week before last I spent some quality time in the field with my HVX200 doing simple ENG work, and a little bit of editing. I didn't have any time to really play with settings or experiment. It was a media event to preview a new amusement ride...

I was thinking today about Microsoft, and what it means to me specifically. Oddly enough, I have no stake in the company, but it has a stake in me since I buy its products and its products have largely been the reason for my financial success. First off...

More MacBook fun
Last night I realized that my Windows partition on the MacBook really didn't need to be more than 20 gigs, so I started over since I didn't do much to install various applications. I had a weird thing where pci.sys disappeared, no idea how, so...

First touch in MacBook Pro
With the release of BootCamp yesterday, Apple removed the last objection I had to owning a Mac, so I bought a MacBook Pro at the local Apple store. Ouch. Can you say purchase regret? This should be the last thing I need to buy for my video/film empire...

More thoughts on Windows running on a Mac
I was reading some of the comments with the C-Net News.com story about the Mac app that will let you run Windows. Lots of goofy ass comments that I think miss the mark. Who is this really for? I think it's mostly directed toward people in the market...

Windows developers that are Mac fans, rejoice!
Yes my friends... we can finally run Windows on a new Mac, and it looks really easy... http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/ I love the jabs they take. "Running Windows on a Mac is still running Windows." :)
