Hau’oli la hanau ia ‘oe! (Hawaiian for ‘Happy Birthday’) My sister was born on 6/6/66, the number plus one!

Aloha,

Keola

So, it’s 6-6-6 in whatever date ordering you prefer, and this is supposedly the Number of the Beast. Or perhaps not. Do I care? Not really…

…it’s my birthday, however. This specific birthday is my 37th (in hexadecimal of course icon_wink.gif)and it’s a rare one, in that I’m not away on a trip. Last year my birthday present was a surprise, all right: I was at the WWDC keynote and listened to Steve Jobs announce the Mac-Intel switch. Later in the day I tripped on a San Francisco sidewalk and, fortunately, suffered no serious harm.

Hopefully, today will bring no serious surprises either way, and I’m looking forward to the positive ones that this year’s WWDC will bring. More details in a month or so…

Oops. Sorry

You may have noticed that this site has been down for about a day… seems that I inadvertently let the domain expire, because the e-mail at the registrar was pointing to a defunct address. A previously unnoticed side-effect of my switching to DreamHost 18 months ago.

All is being sorted out now, and I apologize for any inconvenience.

Fast update

So, my new Intel Mac mini is in and working. I bought the basic version; Core Solo at 1.5GHz, 512MB. It fits nicely under my iSub woofer. My iMac G5 controls it over Ethernet for remote debugging, and after some initial setup it doesn’t need mouse, keyboard or display.

I’ve already restarted debugging XRay II as a Universal Binary and universal versions of some other stuff will be out soon. Stay tuned…
