Fuck You, iTunes 7

Have you installed Apple’s iTunes 7 on your Windows PC yet? And then tried to delete the iTunes shortcut from your desktop or move/rename the iTunes folder on your Start Menu?

If yes, then you’ll have found the same thing I did… that every time you launch iTunes, it gets Windows Installer to replace the shortcuts for you. Want a clean desktop? Not possible. Want to put iTunes straight in the All Programs folder and not inside the iTunes subfolder? Not possible.

Garfish, Revisited

We visited Garfish for dinner tonight (at Crows Nest this time) as it was Mom’s birthday. The food was even better than the last time Lucy and I visited Garfish — I was delighted to see my ocean trout was succulent even at the thickest part — and the service was friendly.

Some of you may know that I basically get no perks whatsoever for volunteering my time to run the COFA Students’ Association. Well… that’s not always true. ;) PricewaterhouseCoopers, our consultants, ran a screening tonight for their clients of Al Gore’s new film about climate change, An Inconvenient Truth.

Each and every person should see this film — without exception.

What matters is the message — and it is absolutely compelling.

Where Does Seagate Live?

Ever wondered what the address for the headquarters of Seagate was? (You know, Seagate the hard drive manufacture?) Well wonder no more!

Scoble recently paid a visit to Seagate and took this hilarious photo:

Crikey! Steve Irwin is Dead?!

When it comes to larger-than-life character, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin was certainly on the list… but reports are in he’s just been killed in Queensland by being speared in the chest by a stingray! OMG.

Of all things, I never thought he’d be killed by wildlife, even if it was in the ocean! How horrible. RIP, Steve! :|
