Four Things

1. I've got iTunes up and running on my Win2000 machine at work. Not bad, almost the same as the OS X version as far as I can tell.

2. Details of the Return of the King soundtrack. Running time for the movie is alleged to be 210 minutes. Sweet.

3. Interesting piece on languange and politics. Worth a read regardless of your take on things.

4. Forbes.com Halloween masks. Pick your category: CEOs, billionaires, or dead celebs. Fun for the whole office.

Panther Upgrade

Used the employee discount the other day and preordered Panther (Mac OS X 10.3 for those of you not in the know). Got an e-mail after lunch that I could come in and pick it up whenever. Briefly thought about taunting the people waiting until 8 pm at the Apple store, but I had better things to do.

After backing up mail, photos, and documents to my old external FireWire CD-R and fixing permissions, I took the big step from 10.1.5 to 10.3. A little slow, took under an hour, but no problems so far. All sorts of new things to learn now.

Rush in Rio DVD Review

Saw a link this morning for a Rush in Rio review at DVD Times. Sounds pretty good, although I'm a little annoyed by all the crowd noise that I've heard in the little prieviews I've some across. That said, I'll be picking up both the CD and DVD on the day of release. Ah, the curse of being a completist.
