looking back at me

sense :: taste // Amy’s Teriyaki Bowl

I’ve been something of on a mental nostalgic kick the past few days, thinking back to times gone by and people I’ve known who have passed by the wayside, either graciously or otherwise, happily or otherwise. Sometimes it’s fun to take a stroll down memory lane, and other times it’s nice to sweep out the dust from your mental reverie and clean out the cupboards of your soul. I think it’s time for me to do some spring cleaning. I always did get the bug for it long before the spring actually came.

So if I haven’t made it clear over at Gears and Widgets, I desperately want a MacBook Pro. The Girl soothed my troubled mind about the expense by pointing out that I should wait for a while (ie, June) to make sure I get the most geek for my money (ie, make sure no hardware changes are announced at the Developer’s Conference in June) and that I’ve got all the dough I’ll need for it, the extra battery I’ll undoubtedly want, and the Applecare Protection Plan that every Mac portable owner should definitely have. All that being said, I’m still rubbing my hands together eagerly and eating up reviews like this one from MacWorld when I can find them. Tasty.

In other news, I’ve been playing through Quake 4 at home more than I’ve been playing World of Warcraft, which probably has something to do with my main hitting 60 and becoming promptly bored. I should probably work on an alt or something.

Anyway, if you’re like me and love those images of the Earth at night from space, you’ll probably dig this desktop wallpaper generator that’ll let you center the world’s focus on the part of the planet you like and generate a custom desktop to whatever resolution you like at whatever time you like. That is to say, the image generated at 4PM will obviously be different from the image generated at 8AM.
