macworld Snow Leopard hidden features

So I’ve had Snow Leopard since WWDC, but was amazed at the number of things this video showed, that I had no idea existed! Some were more “Meh, that’s nice” and a few were “Wow, turning that on, right now!” If you’ve just installed Snow Leo, or are planning to this weekend, spend 7 minutes to watch this video! Other than a few apps either not working at all, or not working well (iStat Menus and CS4 in that order), I’ve found running Snow Leo to be very awesome.

A little recharge never killed anyone

This past weekend I went and visited my folks. It was nice, it’s been a while since I visited so that was extra nice, hate not seeing them for so long, time just flies!

I’m not sure what I think about the character of Mike Donavan being a priest (I presume that’s who he’s supposed to be, no names are used on the spot) But hot damn if this clip doesn’t get you excited about watching white mice and guinea pigs eaten alive, well nothing probably will. Just freakin’ cool! It almost seems like in this clip that the goal isn’t to eat us, which is weird, since that was the corner stone (and stealing our water) of the original miniseries/series/sequel book.
