Win7 > Mac for Once

I spent many many hours this week getting Windows 7 working on BootCamp. Now I can play all the cool video games that aren’t available for the Mac. Yay! (No Skyrim, tho — looks like the requirements are higher than what I’ve got. I’ll probably try Fallout 3 or NV and/or Oblivion at some point. Maybe Morrowind.)

However, today — quite by accident — I found this cool feature of Windows 7, which is really nifty and unique:

When you hold down the windows button and hit tab, you’ll get an animated flow of windows to choose from. Sweet!

That’s all.

Didactic SynCast #75: Peeing While Driving

Without even realizing it, I’ve done 75 shows! If you’ve ever wondered about the pre-reboot shows, check out the archive. There’s even some vidcasts there (QuickTime format, alas — this was pre-YouTube). They’re mostly collections of cool music, but there’s some other stuff too. Have a look around.

Anyway, on this week’s show we look at a strike at Foxconn, criminal cell phones (and criminal cops), and the dangers of listening to this show while you drive. How meta! Enjoy.
