Scummies / Going out of town
December 22, 2010, 09:39:20 PM
For reasons unfathomable to my meager mind, my family is taking a trip to wintry, desolate, Washington DC to visit cousins instead of forcing them to come visit us in warm, sunny (well, not at the moment, but in general), San Diego. As a result, I will probably be online, but not as much as I normally would for the next week. I come back January 1st.

Stay frosty.

There's a rumor floating around that Civ V will come out for the Mac in the coming weeks.

That is all.

Scummies / 2 weeks will be gone
August 04, 2010, 08:24:14 PM
In an attempt to change up the trend of people posting "will be gone for two weeks", I have reworded the title of this post.

So yeah, I'm going to Galapagos for two weeks. I'll be back the 19th.

Don't throw any parties.

EDIT: Whoops, put this in the wrong sub-forum. My bad.

Also post any funny haikus you have here. Here are two of mine

Tech Support / Weird Expose Problems
September 12, 2009, 06:11:43 PM
I'm running Mac 10.5.8 (Leopard) and my exposé has been weirding out on me. It randomly starts shuffling my windows around, and it won't go to sleep (my family generally sleeps the computers while in town). It is connected on a network to an older mac (10.4 I believe), runs on airport. My spaces is turned off. Other than the weird random exposéing and not going to sleep (which I suspect is because it is triggering the exposé buttons while asleep) there seems to be nothing wrong with it.

I have not played any fullscreen games since (and for long before) it started, though I have been playing some Quake Live, but intermittently and not immediately before this started. Another thing to note is that after playing a fullscreen game (particularly SWBF or CIV 4), the top bar of the screen (where the File, Edit, Time and Airport stuff are) is always scrunched up when I exit the game.

A side note; it weirds out even more when I open system preferences making it next to impossible to use. It's almost as if someone is controlling the computer from afar and is trying to keep me from getting to something.
Welcome Center / Gone for a bit.

There was just a death in the family and I will probably be out of town for all of the weekend.
Welcome Center / Going out of town

I'm going to Vancouver and then later on a cruise to Alaska tomorrow.

I will be back the 15th.

There MAY be internet access on the boat, so I may be able to stay in touch, if not in games.
Tech Support / Wii Buzz

Recently my Wii has been buzzing angrily at me if I play for more than 15 minutes at a time without about 2 hour breaks between.

Is this a problem.
