resolio and other stuff

I ran across this site for creating attractive online resumes: Resolio. I started using it and noticed that they’re using my tabber script in their interface. I’m also using tabber in a major project at work – it’s a great way to get a quick interface going without any effort.

I finally got around to installing Ubuntu Linux on Kirsten’s old PC. The old PC had struggled to run Windows XP, but it seems pretty zippy with Linux. I have it set up on my desk: two monitors for my Windows PC, and a third for the Linux box. Now I’m trying to get Synergy working so I can use a single mouse/keyboard to span all three monitors. It will be good to get back into a real OS after slumming in Windows for so long.

Speaking of a real OS, I moved Kirsten to a nice iMac last year, with mixed results. The mouse that they ship with these things is absolutely horrible. She had a heck of a time trying to burn some music to a CD (iTunes is pretty unintuitive in that regard: you can’t just select some songs and burn a CD, you have to select the songs, create a playlist, then burn the playlist to a CD). Also, the kids use her computer, and there are just certain things and websites that won’t run on a Mac, so she occassionaly comes down to the basement to use my Windows PC.

In any case, I’m hoping to get a MacBook when they make their next revision, which will hopefully contain the new Santa Rosa chipset and LED backlit monitor.
