Adobe = Ass

Photoshop CS3 will not install on a Mac with a case-sensitive filesystem. So no case-sensitive HFS+, no UFS, and no ZFS (assuming the rumors are true).

Thanks, assholes.

Is it true that there is no way to do CPU affinity on MacOS X? Is this possible?


The NY Times has some local designers weigh in on the butt-ugly new NYC Taxi stencils.


BBC News: Monkeys kill Delhi deputy mayor

The deputy mayor of the Indian capital Delhi died on Sunday after being attacked by a horde of wild monkeys. SS Bajwa suffered serious head injuries when he fell from the first-floor terrace of his home on Saturday morning trying to fight off the monkeys.

But this is my favorite part:

The city has long struggled to counter its plague of monkeys, which invade government complexes and temples, snatch food and scare passers-by.

One approach has been to train bands of larger, more ferocious langur monkeys to go after the smaller groups of Rhesus macaques.

Oh, yea. No way that might backfire.
