I played around a bit with a Power Mac G3 all-in-one at school today. Seemed like a decent piece of equipment in some respects, although still crippled by the MacOS (among other things). The school is planning on leasing a huge number of these things to people in the community, and we might be getting one. Not a computer I would normally consider purchasing, but if we do have one around, I might as well mess with it. I'm betting a Linux installation would be cool... ;)

At any rate, if we do get one, I'll do a full review/writeup type thingy.

Hmm... I meant to have that IRC log turned into a story by now... Ah well, I'll get it done one of these days.

A couple of links to stuff worth reading:

  • The Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce - Hilarious, and a classic besides. The same site has copies of some other classic (and public domain) literature, including The War of the Worlds and Beowulf.
  • Our Own Standards - I found this pretty amusing, and the Lightweight Markup Language doesn't strike me as all that bad of an idea...

And now, I'm off to do homework. I can already feel all motivation draining from my body.
