  1. Hi everyone, I made another video— . I wrote the song back in 2001–2002 and decided to revisit it making a video on the way. Hope you'll enjoy it. Here's the original 2002 version of it.
  2. That's great! My brother used to work at a zoo (at the aviary and then the terrarium), and I used to hang out with him quite a bit. Later he and I worked together at a live reptile exhibit. Boy was it fun!
  3. Thank you, Bruce. Thank you, Bonnie. Oh, I see you in my Subscribers section. Neat sharks!
  4. It's Friday the 13th and I got my 2,000th hit today!
  5. Thank you Vivek! Thank you Andy! Thank you Stefan! I did quite a bit of post processing in iMovie to brighten up the picture. I lost some color on the way, so I had to compensate for that by tinting the entire image. Still, the output of the web cam is pretty noisy, and there isn't a whole lot you can do about it. I agree that the audio is important, but it would be great if along with pleasing the ear I could please the eye. I fed the bass into M-Audio's Ozonic audio interface and into Logic Pro. There I used Guitar Rig and Space Designer for processing. Then I bounced the track and did some post-processing in Peak. (YouTube overcompressed the audio quite a bit; I didn't know it would happen.) Thank you! I'm actually a "faux" bass player. My main instrument is the guitar (you can see its 7-string headstock behind me in the video). You're welcome, and I'm definitely planning to post more videos.
  6. Thank you! Yup, I saw you subscribed. I'm definitely going to put up more videos. Will take some time, though. It was a bit of a hassle to shoot with a web cam. Need a lot of light and that's still not enough.
  7. Thank you, guys! I'm glad you liked it.
  8. So, I finally came up with a video that I posted on YouTube. Prior to that I tested in on a few close friends. Almost all of them (96.4%) survived the testing, so I assume it is safe to expose the general public to it. Enjoy! P.S. Don't forget to link your friends to it, even if you don't like it.
  9. Oh, I wasn't referring to Horde. I was referring to email clients accessing mailboxes via IMAP. The folder structure has changed and all the mailboxes now reside in a single folder with the name of the email account. Email clients see it (in my case) as a folder called INBOX, so you need to tell this to your email client. It will create all the folders (or pick up the existing folders) within a single folder called INBOX (the actual name on the server is different). I'm sorry if this doesn't help you. I use a standalone email client, not Horde.
  10. I did. And . . . I figured out that in order for my setup to continue working I need to change the IMAP Path Prefix to INBOX on all my accounts on all my machines. D'oh . . . Hope this info will help other users, if they encounter similar problems.
  11. Oh guys, this is very . . . unexpected. My mail is a total mess now. Sent messages shows up as a mailbox inside my inbox and I can't create any new mailboxes (IMAP) The thing is I'm in the middle of a large project and don't have much time to spend setting up my mail again. I need to use it.
  12. Heh. That's how Nisus Writer is being developed: http://www.nisus.com/forum/viewforum.php?f...96166296051a234
  13. It's funny how Office (Word, in particular) is incapable of fulfilling two tasks: it's not a very good text processor and it's certainly one of the worst layout design apps. I never thought I could switch to using something else, however. But you know what? That was because I never tried. I'm a happy camper now. I use Nisus Writer Express for text processing (it's a brilliant app) and Pages for layout (although I rarely need any layout done). I haven't launched Office for a long, long time. Conclusion: there are viable alternatives to MS Office. You just have to try them.
  14. Terrible GUI design. I predict localization hell.
  15. You do not need to partition the hard disk to do this. Just install Mac OS X on the same disk. You will still be able to switch between Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X. P.S. It's Mac, not MAC, as in "Macintosh."
  16. I wrote a review on Apple's new QuickTime 7. Take a look at it here. You might want to bookmark the page for future reference, since I'm planning to update it fairly often.
  17. Ah! An MDD G4... What can be better?
  18. Fortunately, there was no prohibition on altered desktops...as in cleaned up. Hey! Not fair! You already got one!
  19. Ouch! I just returned the camera I'd borrowed from a friend. Well, even though I'm out of the competition, I decided I'll post this pic I took a few days ago. Quiz: Guess what these computers have to do with the iPod, and you'll get a... uh... um... "wow!" from me.
  20. Cool! I've counted three Macs so far...
  21. Maybe, but I can't stand Firefox for its non-Mac OS native GUI elements and failure to render CSS properly.
  22. Interesting. What I don't understand is why "cold" or "warm" start time is so important? I wrote a script that launches Safari (and a bunch of other apps) during startup. It stays open until I reboot (one a month, or so). In addition, does speed really matter if a browser cannot render a page properly?
