  • OS X crashed again without any message in the console. This time it was not the hdd that caused the crash though. #

  • waiting for phone conference. #
  • Nearing completion of a rather complex print project. Print can be really scary. You can’t even correct typos afterwards. #

  • Got a new hdd for the MacBook. Had another massive fail this morning. Now restoring from a two days old backup. #
  • New hdd is working nicely. And so much space. Unfortunately I have to copy some of the files manually. #

  • Is it just me? JavaScript to follow sb on twitter.com doesn’t seem to work. And yes, I have JavaScript enabled in browsers. #
  • Now that I started learning Git, Coda has built in SVN support. #

Open source Muxtape

Opentape

Opentape is a free, open-source package that lets you make and host your own mixtapes on the web.

Upload songs (via web or FTP), reorder, rename, customize the style, and share what you like on other sites with an embeddable player.

  • Ok, this is the first time for me to have a startup problem with my MacBook. Not sure yet what to do. #
  • Archive and install or restore from TimeMachine? #
  • Having more than just one backup of my files gives me a positive feeling about the outcome of the restore process. #
  • I can boot from an image of the internal disk of my MacBook but not from the internal disk itself. Strange. #
  • Back up and running. Copying back the image to the internal harddrive did the trick. #

The Art of the Title Sequence

Cool website collecting title sequences of movies.

“Remember when your heart sank just a little when you realized the Pink Panther movie wasn’t a cartoon?

Then, only a few years later, seeing Edward Gorey’s eerily fantastic opening to ‘Mystery!’ capped with Vincent Price’s name on a headstone had your head spinning at the thought of the kind of stories those etchings could tell…if only the show was based on those illustrations.

Well, we want to see more of that. So watch and remember and create. And if you’ve got something to contribute, send it along.”
