For those who use browsers that support the text-shadow property of the CSS 2 standard (i.e. Safari), you will be able to enjoy the text shadows that I’ve applied to all the links and post titles.
For those who don’t use Safari, may I suggest switching to Safari if you have a Mac? And if you own a Windows PC, may I suggest a Mac? 😀
Bad pushy Mac user!
The key is to subtly hint at all the excellent features and things you can do with a new mac and OS X until those ‘others’ feel so interested they can’t keep themselves away! 🙂
By the way, I read New Scientist as well. It’s an excellent ‘zine – I just got the extra-big end-of-year issue this morning.
I guess that depends on which side of the fence you are on. If you were a Windows user, belittling Mac is perfect acceptable. May be even encourage. But it is not acceptable coming from the other way? Not that I am saying you are like that, just merely pointing out the hypocrisy in the computing population in general. Windows users must learn to be able to take what they give out.
I think I gave up trashing systems when I stepped in to my room one day and realized that I had a mac laptop sitting on one end of my desk and a desktop on the other sporting XP Pro/RedHat Linux partitions.
Had I a choice, I’d be using a dual 1.8 ghz g5 box but I don’t have anything close to the funds for that at the moment. I can deal with the thriftyness of a homebuilt windows PC for the moment.
