incetardis and I resumed our Tuesday nights of TV watching, with a brand new episode of 24 and the season premiere of The Shield. redvector and some friends of his even joined us.

Got dragged to Brooklyn after redvector and co. left to pick get incetardis's slide scanner from his apartment, so he could do some hi-res slide scanning at work the next day. He ended up spending the night since he didn't want to deal with the commute the next morning.

Tuesday was also the Macworld Expo keynote. I didn't skip lunch for the live web cast, but incetardis, kingfox, and caniswolfie did. I saw the second half. The 17 inch PowerBook is a bit excessive, probably very impractical to carry, but I sooo want one.. The 12 inch is probably more up my ally, and within my price range. No, I don't think I'm getting a new Mac anytime soon...

I'm bothered that Safari is based upon Konqueror's KHTML engine and not Gecko. Safari shares the same rendering issues that Konqueror has, seeming to have trouble rendering even very simple web pages here at drewuniversity correctly that were created in Dreamweaver. Hell, it can't even get the font size right on my page. I really like Safari's UI, particularly the awesome new bookmarks organizer that is based upon the library in iTunes. Still, I've always been a big fan of Chimera and will probably continue to use that as my Mac browser until they iron out the issues with Safari's render engine. The good news is that at least they will contribute their render engine changes back to the KDE project, and Konqueror will get better as a result.
