I don’t get this at all. I always wanted to be ‘big in Japan’ but this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. I keep expecting a doppelganger (except with japanese letters on his t-shirt) to walk through the door, klang me on the head with a mallet and take over my identity. Actually, considering my homework load: GoodLuck fella! hahah.
Anyway – since I’m now linking to it, maybe when it updates it’ll start feedbacking and explode. And what”s with the prawns link at the top?? I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned prawns in here. Whatever.
Via osnews there’s this rumour that apple OS X.3 would go full metal in look. My first reaction was to get whiney about how it’s a rip off of Enlightenment, but instead I think I’ll go on a little nostalgia trip to when I first saw enlightenment. It was december 2000 and i’d been living at the beach for about a month. This is what it looks like, but imagine it being right across your screen. I’d never known a desktop could look so simple but attractive. I’d go sit on the beach, looking at the glassy sand where the waves would just reach to, right out to the horizon and then up into the sky. And I’d think that enlightenment was like the digital equivalent of that.
It’s a pretty neat desktop. Waiting for its successor, E17, to arrive has (and still is) like waiting for Deep Thought to announce the answer to 6×7 is 42.
I’m off to Rancho Relaxo for the weekend. My brother’s computer blew up. He needs his minnows98 disc back. i need to get some study done.
That mirror thingie is weird. Mind you you’re in good company – I can’t find the bloody link any more but someone mirrored westpac’s online banking site as well.

Yes, that’s a better way to look at it. I should take it as a compliment, or something.
