Here’s a slightly uncomfortable, but very worthwhile, account of why celebrity is not an excuse for bad behaviour, but is also not a reason for mockery. Unlikely as it might seem, it comes from Craig Ferguson.
Actually it’s as cool as it ever was, but I now know a little more about just how chilly it is. TUAW has a tip for setting an alarm using QuickSilver. Be sure to read the comments, as they simplify it down even more than the original tip. This allows me to get rid of the excellent TinyAlarm, which is great as it’s the only program that requires Rosetta on my MacBook. I understand that Rosetta slows down everything a little when it’s running, so while I rarely notice any slowness I’ll feel better on the inside knowing it’s not there.
