So, the big question, does the Mac, the great graphic computer that it is, the home of the classic -- MacPaint, come with a paint program? I just want something that lets me resize graphics and type some text on them, you know the usual Scripting News type graphic illustrations. Nothing too fancy. Don't tell me I'm going to have to buy PhotoShop because that will make me angry. Make me happy and tell me there's something simple and fast already on my hard disk! Where is it? I don't need Garage Band or Dot-Mac, or any of that crap. Give me a paint program or else. Hehe. Sorry. [Scripting News]
Hmmm... Have you heard of iPhoto? is right there in your Dock! I guess using Windows makes you... think differently. There are great programs and utilities for imaging for Mac, they are not called Paint programs anymore because that name does not reflect current reality. You can do what you want, without buying Photoshop, using GimpShop (free), Graphic Converter (cheap) or tons of other programs. The best way is to use scripts. I have two in my Finder's toolbar, Rotate and Scale by %, and I drop one o several images and they do what their name implies. They can be found out there, but if you want them let me know... I think the key here is approaching a new system by emptying your cup... If you know what I mean.

Formula Bullshit

F1: Alonso steers Renault to glory. World champion Fernando Alonso wins in China to help Renault claim the constructors' title. [BBC News | News Front Page | UK Edition]
What happened with Schumacher was incredible. Crashed by Albers from behind while going to the pits. Not only that commentaries try to confuse issues and assign blame to Schumacher. Rule of thumb, when someone crashes from behind it is their fault! Period. The rest is bullshit. Albers should be penalized. Rules will change again next year, Michelin is resisting the return of tyre changing. They are doing something really intelligent, claiming pit stops have nothing to do with racing and should be banned all together. It would be fun, but it was tried before. Alonso and Renault are the big winners. Next years will see the end of four teams, and there will be 6 new teams (maybe) including B teams managed by the same people. The saddest thing is Minardi, it will become Toro Rosso managed by the Red Bull team. Rumors have Raikkonnen in talks with Ferrari, I hope that is not true. Engines will get smaller... F1 made less money this year than last...
