I recently got ahold of a nice MacBook Pro and I'm using it as my primary Windows box at work. It's nice and snappy and I like it, but I'm having trouble getting used to the keyboard, let alone the one-button mousepad. I thought I'd use this post to collapse several google searches into one location. I'll likely add to this list as I learn more tricks. Read the rest of this entry ...

Via Slashdot. Hm, maybe someone at Marvel Comics is reading my blog? About a year and a half ago, I made a suggestion of a $10 monthly charge to read any number of older comics online. Now Marvel comics is doing just that. I'm not claiming my suggestion was original or revolutionary, it's just good to see the comic book companies finally starting to get a clue.

I took a look at a sample issue and the quality is pretty good on my 19" monitor. Who cares about the fancy page transitions, though? They use Adobe Flash 9, of course.

I hope DC follows suit because I bet some of those really old issues are impossible to find through any other means.

As per these requests I made a screencast of running the SVG video demos on Opera 9.5. My apologies for the crappy video - it's only my second attempt. Also, I should stress that the framerate of the video on Opera is perfect (any jitteriness is the screencast's fault, not Opera's).
