Yesterday, I went through a stressful situation that happens so frequently that I didn’t notice how irritant it was until much later, and it took me another couple other hours to realized that the incident could have been avoided. It went something like this:
I got a link from the nVidia newsletter saying that they had released some new app called piclens, which according to the newsletter “transforms your browser into an immersive, full-screen 3D experience for photos and videos on the web”. I didn’t get it at first, but now that I’ve used it, I don’t know how I lived without it.
My parents always keep reminding me how lucky I am to be born in the Information age, and how back in there time, they calculated with abacuses and bla bla bla… However, if I could change something in my date of birth, I’d drag it back to the 70s, back when computers all started. There are some things that I feel I missed, and it deeply saddens me, stuff like hand soldering my hardware to repair it, owning a Thrash80, posting on BBS’s and jacking up my parent’s phone bills by downloading text files, backing up my crap on cassettes, all these things leave me begging for a one way trip aboard the time-traveling Delorian straight back to the 80s.
I jumped when I saw that the Organizr no longer refers to the content of sets and collections as photos but rather as things. I could smell something was cooking up.
Do you want to start folding for the cure under a linux OS? It’s a fact, all machines run work units fast on tweaked linux, so what are you waiting for?
