I’ve always been a PC person but switched to Mac about 2.5 years ago when I started my current gig. It was surprisingly easy to make the switch and I really had no complaints.
I missed the “Home” and “End” button functionality. When in Windows and editing a file with multiple lines of text, these buttons will take you to the start or end, respectively, of the line on which the cursor sits. On a Mac, these buttons take you to the start or the end of the file. Bart no like.
Since my switch, I’ve always hated this. I have a coworker who consistently tells me that the same result can be had by using the up/down arrows on the keyboard. “Works every time,” he says. Well, it works every time there is only one line of text, otherwise it just moves the cursor up or down the lines. Not helpful and he still tries to tell me this when I bemoan my fate.
Last Friday, another coworker clued me in, and I’m really surprised that it’s taken this long for the information to get to me. So, allow me to elucidate:
When your cursor is on a line of text and you want to jump to the start or end of that particular line, then click CMD+ (left arrow, right arrow), respectively. Simple, really, and I’m again surprised that no one told me sooner. Same functionality as the Home and End buttons on a PC.
Genius! Now, I’m back at 100% effectiveness.
On July 12, 2010, I started the on the Zone diet. I’ve been doing it 80-90% and since I started I’ve lost 20# with no more exercise than a little extra walking at work (I sit in front of a computer all day).
I’m now down 60# since the start of the new year. Today I played 18 holes of golf at Patapsco ( and shot a new best of 65) and I WAS NOT TIRED AFTERWARDS. This is nice.
Read The Zone and Mastering the Zone by Barry Sears. I got them at the library and blasted through them in less than 3 weeks. Once you read and understand what’s going on, you’ll wish you had learned this 15 years ago when the first book was published. The fat will melt off and optimum health will follow.
It’s not a huge deal. Hey, mistakes happen all the time. I’m just surprised to see it happen in an Adobe product, as polished as they like to be and considering how much one has to pay to use the damn things!
I was in the preferences window for Fireworks CS4 (Mac, and at work), just looking around, when I moused over a check box and there it was. I did a double take. I moused over a couple more times to be sure it wasn’t me. Nope, not me. There is, indeed, a typo in Fireworks CS4! Ha! I love it.
Did a quick Google search and it looks like I might even be the first to notice. Although, given the number of Geeks in the world, I’d be surprised if I really am the first. Either way, it’s kind of like an Easter Egg for me.
Quoted from an article in the NYTimes:
Are we really that close to a world in which food functions as a nutrient delivery system
Um… isn’t that what food is anyway?
