I’ve been looking all over for someone else having the same issue. After installing Leopard on my MacBook Pro (Core Duo) Safari would crash randomly when accessing websites from our corporate network. I suspected it had something to do with authentication on our proxy server, but couldn’t find anything online about it. I finally ran across this thread on Apple’s discussion boards:
So I’m not the only one. As said in that discussion thread, only apps that use the built-in proxy authentication seem to have this problem. Firefox, etc. do not crash when authenticating against the proxy server, and Safari works fine from my home network (or any other network I’ve tried that does not have a proxy to authenticate with.)
I’d love to be able to use Safari–but until it’s fixed, there’s no point in even trying.
Anyway–just wanted to blog this thread in case someone else is having the same issue and also having trouble finding company in your misery.

Found this on Lifehacker, and liked it so much I thought I’d embed it here, too. We see a LOT of Powerpoint presentations throughout the year… Some are phenomenal, others aren’t. The biggest point the presentation below makes is: ONE POINT PER SLIDE. Keep it simple. The slides should emphasize your speech, not the other way around.

I miss you brother. Everyone is drinking PBR in your honor…
You showed me that there’s even more to life than I thought… People… Selflessness… I see it. I’m trying to live it.

Huh… I seem to have hit a point where I’m just not sure what to blog about anymore. The millions of bloggers out there clog the interwebs with meaningless drivel (not that there aren’t some good ones out there, but you know what I mean.) So instead of adding to the crap that can be found on the web now-a-days, I think I’ll quietly slip away for now. At least until I think of some purpose for a blog. I’ll leave the history here… It’s a part of me. Some don’t understand why the hell I’d post personal stuff online for the world to see. I really don’t have any secrets… But I’ve read enough “personal” blogs to realize how mundane they become unless there’s a specific interest in the blogger him/herself.
Part of me thinks it’s the format… I remember back in the day I had a great little self-designed template that was supposed to look like coffee-stained yellow notepad paper. I’m not sure where that one went. Maybe it’s the fact that life has become busier… Maybe the whole blogging thing was just a phase. I’m not sure. But it isn’t what it used to be. So I digress…
Someday, I’ll turn this into something cool… But for now it just is what it is.

On Terry Heaton’s blog he outlines an encounter with CompUSA in which he purchased (he thought) a Canon digital camera for his step-daughter. When the time came to give her the present, they discovered that he had not bought a cool new digital camera… Instead, he had bought a $270 empty box.
On one hand, I can see where it may be difficult on CompUSA’s part to tell whether or not they’re getting scammed… I mean, I could go buy anything, take it out of the box, and return an empty box. But seriously–considering everything else he purchased that day (over $3000 worth of merchandise,) I would think they could refund or exchange the camera to ensure a satisfied (and previously loyal) customer.
Apparently I’m a little slow–I didn’t realize that Journler was up to version 2.5.2… I upgraded today, and I have to say–major improvements.
The interface (which is always my favorite part of any application,) is “cleaner”… The way the program handles file attachments is better, too. And, the app now has a “Photo” option in addition to the good ol’ “Audio” and “Video” features. Those of you doing the Project 365 stuff could really benefit from this.

I’ll write more once I’ve had a chance to play with it more. I plan on getting back into the swing of writing more often… Been slacking lately. May switch to a new platform, may not…
What is Suicide Food? Suicide Food is any depiction of animals that act as though they wish to be consumed. Suicide Food actively participates in or celebrates its own demise. Suicide Food identifies with the oppressor. Suicide Food is a bellwether of our decadent society. Suicide Food says, “Hey! Come on! Eating meat is without any ethical ramifications! See, Mr. Greenjeans? The animals aren’t complaining! So what’s your problem?” Suicide Food is not funny.
Found a post on this while surfing Consumerist.com. I wish I had time to compile stuff like this and make a website for it.
I used this simple little how-to as a basis for setting up my Ubunto Linux server… I used the server version of Ubuntu, but most of the instructions remain the same. So far I love Ubuntu. I started with Mandrake back in the day, then moved to Red Hat and Fedora… I haven’t tried the desktop version of Ubuntu yet, but the server version has is exactly what I need for a home file server. I didn’t use it specifically for a media server, but for someone who wants to set up a basic file server that plays well in a mixed network environment, this is a great tutorial.
Much thanks to the author–simple, straightforward… Especially for someone like me who gets a little sketchy on the command line.

Yeah–lots going on… I’m in this stage where I don’t really know what to write here anymore… So… Yeah. I could go on and on about life, etc. but I won’t. I need a theme… So until I get one, I may duck out for a bit. In the meantime, check out DanielHedrick.com, Aesacus, or TWI5TED (nothing up there yet…)
Blah blah blah.
