Two days of hardware/software upgrades turns me into some kind of monster.

me playing with photobooth

Coming off of two days of planning and executing a giant hard drive and OS upgrade to my MacBook. Luckily everything went well so all my careful backing up was probably unnecessary. Now have a comfy 160gb hard drive and Mac OSX Leopard.

Best part: Leopard means I can finally run ies4osx, an amazing hack that downloads old versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer (5, 5.5, 6 and 7) and runs them in emulation inside your Mac OS. Any web designers/developpers out there shouldn’t even think about it. Run, don’t walk. (I was previously using the original Linux version, ies4linux, which worked well but forced me to use Linux : P )

Worst part: Above. The Photobooth app in Leopard now offers a 4-shot grid, officially ending the tyranny of the so called “real” photobooths of the world.

    If they truly want to be a “photo booth”, the four images should be in a line, not 2×2. :p

    I have been dismayed to see two-tier grids like this in RL photobooths, at least here in Montreal. Definitely worse no matter what though.
