Nigel's Guest Blogger outdoes himself with this one...


You'll need some bleach after viewing the latest work of art...

In other vaguely Casey-related blog news of the day, I think our favorite snowflake might have benefited from reading and digesting Suddenly, the Paranoids Don't Seem So Paranoid Anymore a year or so ago.


For the record, I would like to reiterate: Vista Sucks.

I think the new challenge is getting Nigel Swaby Housing Bear to show up in Nigel's precious search results.

Vista Sucks

Indeed it does.

OS X is calling....

"Come to the Dark Side! Buy a Mac!
You know you want to....."

Nigel's Guest Blogger,
His search results are already in such a sad state, I'm surprised he hasn't legally changed his name as an astute ExUrb observer suggested. I'm still annoyed by an accidental philosophy-related post from work that Google refuses to forget...

Sprezz,
Vista is so bad I suspect Microsoft is spending quite a bit of money to censor that fact in the media. As far as Mac goes, my first answer is many of the apps I need don't run on it yet my second honest answer is - nor do they run on Vista.
I've just never been a Mac person (and Vista is so Mac-ish it might explain my general state of confusion over the whole thing - in addition to the fact that performance is painstakingly slow). Other than a bizarre, post-college contract job at a naming company, I’ve had very little experience with them. While it's quite rusty these days, I spent a few years with UNIX, so I imagine Lynx would probably be a more manageable transition...Maybe Microsoft will provide a super service pack and that won't be necessary...Until then, I remain (in M.SINGH form) a Vista Hater.

My current gig is in a mixed Mac / Windows shop, and I've been using OSX as my office OS for some time now. It was a bit of an adjustment first but now I like it.

For general office stuff, Mac is fine, but if you have specialized or custom apps you need to use, I could see why you might need to think twice -- although you could always install Parallels and a copy of Windows XP. :)

I set up Linux servers a few years back for intensive backoffice stuff. Last time I checked they had been running for over 750 days without being rebooted.... however for desktop stuff.... meh....

Unfortunately, I need SQL Server and Visual Studio for work, so while I might occasionally fantasize about a non-Microsoft world, I'm essentially stuck with it whether I like it or not.

BTW, Sprezz, since you're also in the Bay Area, I was wondering if you might know of a good hardware person who could replace the hard drive on my old laptop (Dell Latitude)...I've been meaning to bring it back online with XP so I have a non-Vista option at home.
