I hadn’t been keeping up with the saga of Psystar this week, so I assumed they’d crawled back under their rock. No, apparently they’re still promoting this asinine open Mac concept of theirs.
This photo of their headquarters says it all. Yes: their “Open Computing Headquarters” is “Not Open to the Public.”
Brilliant. But that barely scratches the surface of this twisted story.
I have to admit, after the last I’d read about them, I’m incredibly surprised to see that they exist in a physical location at all. I get the distinct feeling that their presence is more temporary than those fireworks stands that pop up along the roadside in rural Wisconsin in mid-June.
I knew it was probably coming, so it wasn’t a total shock. But still… I woke up this morning to this:
Ugh. It will most likely have melted by noon, I suppose. Not that that will do much to repair my severely damaged psychological state.
Even worse, I’m annoyed that the default CSS for the new WordPress gallery functionality uses
float: left so when there are only two images, it doesn’t center them, but leaves a nice, perfectly-sized void where a third photo would have gone. I’ll have to fix that. Speaking of voids, my annoyance (and distraction) at snow and CSS is somewhat compensated for by the smooth “electronic breakbeat jazz” grooves of Revolution Void.
Update, 8:13 AM: Great, now it’s actually snowing more. Take that, global warming! (Yes, please check out that site, if for no other reason than to prove that just because your URL is “globalwarming.org” doesn’t mean you’re a benevolent non-profit trying to save the world.)
