What Pista Chewed, Part XIV

August 19, 2006

Originally posted to ydnar.vox.com in August 2006.

Last night Pista completely demolished 1 pair $200 snowboarding goggles and snuck into the shower where she found, dragged upstairs, and ultimately dismantled a 32 ounce bottle of moisturizer. This morning the floor of the loft was littered with the remains of same, one happy dog, and huge smears of lotion all over her dog bed.

Next step: Leave bathroom door closed at night and secure valuables in closet.

Edit: Now she's attempting to eat bamboo.

When was the last time you had to speak in front of a group?  How did you feel?

Today, at the company meeting. Noam led off, and I filled in some details. I felt caffeinated.

What's your morning beverage of choice?  Coffee, tea, juice?  Homemade or store-bought?

I love it when I have photos for these things. I have a glass of sickeningly green Alive! Soy Shake in the morning, mixed with rice milk (I don't do dairy). It's actually pretty good. Pista has something similar every morning too.

Via Ars Technica, Microsoft has released a new WYSIWYG blogging tool that not only works with Windows Live Spaces, but other blogging services as well via multiple APIs, including RSD, metaweblog and MT.

Pay attention to the blogging themes Microsoft uses in their screenshots. Look familiar?

What are the 5 words that best describe your life right now?
Question submitted by mojito.

Patience, refinement, cooking, Pista, Vox.

The first two because life is a process. Cooking because it's currently my favorite thing to do at home. Pista and Vox should be obvious. :)

I <3 Speed Download

Originally posted to ydnar.vox.com in August 2006.

It's 25 bucks, which I consider borderline extortion for a shareware app, but man is it good. Speed Download lights up my internet connection like nobody's business. It can saturate my cable connection, besting Safari for the same download by almost 10-fold.

The only quibble I have with Speed Download besides the price is the developer's fascination with red as a primary color for Every. Single. Icon. Hello, Apple UI guidlines?

My prediction for WWDC tomorrow morning? The Mac Pro in a cube enclosure. Likelyhood? Probably just wishful thinking.
