Locally, too, there's a growing ban on plastic for the packaging, so it's getting a bit more earth-friendly. I helped set up a local mobile soup kitchen that also served coffee to area indigent workers. We located a firm that makes cups and bowls from bagasse, the leftover fiber from sugar cane fie...

You might want to check out Morph Age (http://www.creaceed.com). Looks well done, though I've never used it. BTW, you can download the MacWorld MWSF coupon book which has a coupon code for 20% off Morph Age through January.

Years ago, I managed 80+ Macs in a newsroom. At least once a week, a reporter would dump a cup of coffee into a keyboard. I'd do a shut down with the mouse, replace the keyboard with a spare, and take the victim (keyboard, not reporter) over to sink and start running water through it. Take it apart,...

There is something, I think, very convincing in his arguments that memory are the key to self so that if you lose them you are no longer your "self", and that death is a losing of all those memories... If you get the chance, you might want to read The Echo Maker by Richard Powers. Not as ...

I used to use Freeway Pro, and it worked nicely for most things. I switched to Dreamweaver when Adobe included it in the CS2 package. I do a lot of work in Photoshop, so the added ease of moving between the two keeps me in DW now. It would be hard to move back to Freeway. If you want a Freeway Pro s...

Over the years, I've heard of far fewer problems with Moneydance than with most other financial apps. Of late, Quicken, for example, has been trashing folks' desktop files with an upgrade. :D Maybe if the financial app looks ugly, the thought of spending money will have less allure? BTW, through the...

I have been wanting to get into roasting myself, but haven't had the time to research properly. Any tips on where one should start out if they want to get into roasting? How much would one be looking at if they wanted to get a machine for their home? There's more info at sweetmarias.com than anywhe...

When it comes down to it, that's all any of that debate is - opinion. Mark Twain, under the guise of Puddinhead Wilson, once wrote: "Tell me where a man gets his corn pone, and I'll tell you what is 'pinions are." :) If one has a vested interest in the profligate waste of oil and other en...

Peet's is OK for coffee, but not what they were even ten years ago. Best coffee is: 1) Go to Sweet Maria's, (sweetmarias.com) get a home air roaster; 2) Get a few half-pound varieties of green beans to explore. 3) Enjoy! There are other sources of green beans and roasters, but I find Maria's has the...

At 3000 grains, I got stuck at 49. Oddly, rather a few of the words I bumped into seemed to come out of Reginald Hill's Dalziel/Pascoe mysteries. :D

A note for Yojimbo folks... Version 1.5 was released in the last week or so, free upgrade, but now Yojimbo works with graphic files. My only problem with the program is the name. I know from the icon and some posted note somewhere that the name stems from some odd bit of martial arts. But I didn't k...

BBEdit. It doesn't suck. :) I find the add-on support for BBEdit as worthwhile as the base program.
