Safari Update

Filed under Apple

Available now via Software update.. an updated version of Safari for both 10.4.x and 10.3.X

Here’s the description of the update:

Safari version 2.0.1 for Mac OS X Tiger improves website compatibility, application stability and support for 3rd party web applications.

Not very descriptive.. and what’s up with needing a restart just for a browser update Apple? you taking lessons from Microsoft?

Hurricane Idiots

Filed under Current Events

So.. the super heavy coverage by mainstream media of Katrina has highlighted some of the stupid people in the world.

The day before Kat made landfall.. Fox News showed 5 or 6 people getting ready to go into the ocean..to surf

Today.. I’m reading some of CNN’s coverage on Kat, after her landfall.. and I find this gem:

“Tell someone to come get me please. I want to live,” resident Chris Robinson told The Associated Press via cell phone from his home east of downtown

Uhhh.. hello?!?! if you wanted to live that badly.. how come your dumb ass didn’t evacuate as part of the MANDATORY evacuation??!?!? and how come you called the press, instead of.. oh.. I dunno.. 911 if you wanted to be rescued???????

and then there was this winning quote:

Surging water catches New Orleans residents unaware and boats struggle to the rescue.

Exactly how does anything related to a Category 5 hurricane catch you by surprise? What did it sneak up on you? you didn’t notice the 145mph wind? Maybe you didn’t notice the rain? you didn’t hear about everyone evacuating for 3 days?

Yes.. I realize that makes me sound like an Ass.. but come on! they had like 3 or 4 days warning.. plenty of time to get to a shelter if for some reason you were unable to get the hell out of town…

These are the kind of people that show up as Darwin award winners
