Nah, it's cool, and it seems I'm the person who's least enthusiastic about OS X out of everyone who's ever used it. It's a great OS, and I'm not saying it's worse than XP because it's not, but I find swapping programs to be slower (and that's a big thing for me, since I do a lot of it) and I'm just more used to XP, so I favour it.
That's cool, I totally see where you're coming from there. When I made my switch, I was worried I'd have to learn all of these new programs, too, but the best stuff (MS Office, Photoshop, etc...) has a version for OS X, so that's cool.

I'm glad.

They piss me off. Being excited for a film is one thing, but hating on people for reviewing a film that most haven't seen yet unfavorably is ridiculous. The retarded vitriol Rotten Tomatoes is a good example of this.

All I know Ian is that the All Star game needs to end...just not right now, next inning in the top half perhaps.

It's cause NSw is there...probably having a flipping fantastic time...laughing at me watching the game on my compute.r..that bastard.

I've heard it, too. I'd like to read it myself, sometime.

I think so. They've got that frantic vibe to their music and were at the forefront of a new trend (Punk/New Wave for The Clash; Grunge Rock for The Pixies). That's cool enough for me.

Ooh, cool. I've only heard good things about them, so I think I'm going to pick up an album when I go to the record store. What's a good one to start with?

Ax, before you give my list a spin, just know that the 4-sided split is arbitrary. I couldn't space them on 2 discs (1st set of songs was too long), so it put it in an LP format. Try and listen to them within the context of 9 and 18-song sets if you can, if that makes any sense.

No idea what it's called, but the cable end is circular and it has a lot of little prongs.

I know either the keyboard or my old mouse is actually broken, and it's a miracle it ever plugged into the computer when I got to Melbourne. I've been too afraid to unplug either since, in the fear it won't plug back in. The mouse is actually still plugged in and shoved around the back, now that I have my nice, fancy USB mouse.

Surfer Rosa, their debut, or Doolittle, one of my favorite albums of all-time, are good starts.

Hey, Andrew, while you're here, can I get you to do the purity test again? I don't have you on the master list, and now that you're engaged, you've lost at least one point since last time anyway.
