Marc and I have been working on VST Plugins (plugins for audio editing software like WaveLab and Logic) since the beginning of the year, and now some of the ones we did back then are finally available in source form at my CVS Repository. The ones here now are actually pretty crummy, so keep a watch out for our new fancier plugins. (And a launch at smartelectronix too..)
Here's a good piece of software for Windows called Ad-Aware which detects and removes spyware (programs installed with other software which do things like download ads or send information out to corporations) from your computer. Run it! (I think I keep a pretty tight ship, but it did find a few DLLs and registry keys that I hadn't known about.)
For some reason I happened upon this bizarre page, the IBM shrine today. It's an anti-Macintosh page. (I'm not anti-Macintosh, by the way.*) Mostly it's really stupid (though, you've gotta love the 6 year-old propaganda and gifs) but there is one totally hilarious part I just can't bear but to share with you. It's funnier in the context of the page, but essentially he is listing off some things that "MAC" stands for (you know, like, "Mock A real Computer") and finally comes to:
1) Pathetic Scum Moron
.... ??? I'm not kidding. Go check it out.
* There is one thing you never want to do on a mac though, trust me, and that is program in an unsafe language (C, C++). This will be a totally different story with OSX, but with 9 and earlier, it's a world of hurt. (The deal is that bugs in your program can, and do, totally screw up the system because of the lack of protected memory.) But who wants to program in unsafe languages, anyway? [cyclone]
