I think I need to take a nap. I’m feeling really sleepy at the moment, but I suppose it could be because my apartment is around 80° or so. Actually I don’t think it’s quite that hot. If only I still had that trusty Casio watch with a digital thermometer that I had back in middle school.
Oh, joy someone’s firing off a Saturn Battery in the park outside my building.
Speaking of rockets, this inventor in Bend, Oregon is going to be launching himself in a rocket he bulit in his back yard. I hope he succeeds, but if he doesn’t… like one Slashdotter said, we’re looking at a sure fire Darwin Award winner.
I finally installed Darwin 1.02 on a spare partition for fun and enlightenment (a remarkably easy process actually), but I don’t know if I’ll be able to do anything particularly useful with it without a fair amount of effort. Considering the MacOS X beta should (hopefully) be out around the end of July when Mac World New York rolls around there may not be a whole lot of point. There don’t seem to be a whole lot of binaries available for Darwin at the moment and the rumored X Windows port seems fairly mythical as well. I’ve tracked down a few references in mailing lists and in Apple’s Darwin site , but no binaries (or source for the matter).
Dave Winer had a couple significant announcements for Mac users today on Scripting News. First off, Frontier 6.2 should be released tomorrow if no last minute bugs crop up and it will be available on a sixty day trial basis as well. Secondly, Dave announced that a carbonized version of Frontier for Mac OS X will be released at a later date!
