This oen nearly ended its life to day jumped on the desk and ended up skiding across and landing under my wifes G4 17" on the floor a miracle that both computer and cat survived.

I really do not understand how a photo on Flickr becomes popular.

While I do consider this to be some of my best work why this is singled out for attention rather than other photos I have taken I do not get.

Really dumb stuff

Point - I live in switzerland

Point - I own an Apple Mac

Point - I speak English

Point - If I buy something online from Apple I am forced to use the Swiss Apple store

Point - the Swiss Apple store only supports German and French

Point - If I hit upgrade in Quicktime it takes me to the US Apple store site and then I cannot buy anything because it puts my Swiss address details into the form and then fixes the country to USA and that cannot be changed.

Point - This is an example of the purest form of idiocy SHAME ON YOU APPLE for not thinking through your users use cases and SHAME ON YOU APPLE for not accepting my US AMEX credit card in the Swiss Apple store.

I am unhappy and I would be a customer but you APPLE will not let me be a customer you just make me suffer from your crippled software without any chance to upgrade it.

Foucault expresses, among many other things, int his work that taxonomy play an essential role in how the world occurs and I find it fascinating that we also recycle pithy phrases into new meanings.

A perfect example is the quote below which was written 1996 and translated into english in 1970,

"The semantic web of resemblance in the sixteenth century is extremely rich:"

What follows this is a small list of related latin words which form a mini tag cloud of ideas amazing...
