Fall In Tokyo
I'm coming to terms with my new life as a mac user. Don't pay too much attention to my complaints about it. I have added the 512Mb memory, and so far haven't noticed any difference. I have however found that I can be content with the speed of Photoshop so long as I turn off all other applications. Something I'm not used to doing, but will just require a change in usage habits.
I've been reading up on Applescript, hoping that I can do some of my favorite things from Ultraedit with Bbedit / Applescript combos. I've also found some other nifty things to do with Applescript that will make my life happier.
It's amazing how this purchase of a new computer has consumed my life for the past few weeks. It signifies a very scary trend. I don't want to be so dependant on a computer, or on a specific OS or text-editing application. I keep telling myself that I'm going to start spending less time on the computer, but somehow I find myself spending even more.
I remember a day when I thought that a physical book was better than reading from a screen, now I find that somewhere along the line, my preferences have done a complete turnaround. Unless I'm on the train, I am much more able to focus and concentrate when reading from the screen. I think much of it is a sence that if I am not online, I'm missing something. I can't concentrate on the book because the computer is sitting there telling me "There's more information here.... your missing most of it... don't miss it. Don't miss it... Don't get left behind..." Who can concentrate with someone screaming that in your ear?
