In early 1998 I switched to the Mac because I just wanted a simple to use computer for record keeping and to access the web.

In late 1999 I stated this web site because I thought I’d try and cash in on the dot com frenzy and create an over commercialized, bloated and content challenged portal. Well I guess I missed that boat! Now all I have is dreams of what could have been if struck it lucky with VC and been an IPO paper billionaire.

Truth be told, this site was started as a way for me to organize some of the cool things I discover on the net and post some of my own junk. To build it I use just two software packages, Photoshop for the graphics and BBedit to write the HTML.

Now ya know why I use a Mac and why I started this site. If you are interested in using a better thought out machine than windoze PC, check out an FAQ article I found online regarding the topic.

the new iBook and Phaster

While the masses will keep on using the same old shit (a Windoze PC and AOL), enlightened individuals will be using a combination which will stand the test of time (a Mac and Phaster). I figure it is best to think ahead and use a system that can scaled for parallel processing.
