Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Random Panther events...
Installed (upgraded in place)10.3 last night. Used the machine (ti - 667 Mhz) for a full day at work as usual. No major problems with common apps. Needed to download upgrade for rBrowser to work...

X11 - whoa, another story. I've been using the sourceforge x11 for most of my Unix admin/apps for about 6 months (pre version 1.0). I installed the included x11 and it wiped out all my prefs. The terminal died like a pig twice today... Looks like I'm going to have to get dirty and read my init/conf/plist files in detail to figure out what the fu happened. Be forewarned...

More to follow.
Just a few thoughts,

Screamer


But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

New I switched to Apple's X11 in Jaguar
Previous to that I was using [link|http://www.xdarwin.org/|XDarwin] from [link|http://fink.sourceforge.net|fink].

I did have some conflicts at first but eventually resolved them.

I think it was worth the switch, though. Apple's server is fast and (so far) stable and integrates pretty nicely with Quartz.

Re: Other Panther events...

I got my first kernel panic since the Public Beta a couple of days ago. I was fiddling with getting my iPod synced and suddenly a translucent message box popped up in the middle of my screen and advised me to reboot.

But here's the thing-- It was so understated and tasteful that at first that I didn't realize that it was an error message, much less a full blown kernel panic. Quite a change from the old days where black and white text would spew all over your desktop and everything would just lock up.

The question seldom addressed is *where* Medusa had snakes. Underarm hair
is an even more embarassing problem when it keeps biting the top of the
deodorant bottle.

New Had my first Jaguar Kernel Panic the other day too
Though it serves me right, really.

I was SMB'ing to a share on a W2K box, and changing the IP address on said W2K box at about the same time. Duh! I can understand the iBook getting upset at such a thing.

But yeah, the error message is much prettier than a bluescreen, isn't it? :)

New Oh, it's gorgeous
Tasteful, translucent, understated...it was the most charming, pleasant system crash I've ever experienced.

Which is saying something.

New "Guru Meditation" was more amusing, but def. not as pretty:)

I've found if I press just the right spot on the base of the laptop while it's running, eCS will crash.
