Geek Weekend

Sorry for the lack of posting. Not only is there not much baseball to talk about right now, but also I'm making the switch to Apple's OS X operating system, both at home and at work, and it's taking up all my time, i.e., learning how it works and playing with all the new features.

At this point, I can happily report that OS X rocks. I expected it to at work where I just received a brand new top of line dual processor G4, but I was leery of how it'd do on my 3 year old G3 iMac. But there have been no problems at all. It actually seems that my iMac is faster under OS X than it was OS 9.2

OK, enough of the computer geekiness.

While skimming the Globe this morning, I was surprised to find the subheading reading "The Millar's tale" in Edes' Baseball notes. Not only was it surprising to read that" there remains a chance something will be worked out that will allow Millar to play for Boston," but also it was surprising to see that I used the exact same headline, "The Millar's Tale," here at Bambino's back on January 15th.

I'm not suggesting that the copy editors at the Globe are reading my posts and taking my headline ideas, of course, just that it's interesting that we both chose to use the name Millar in an esoteric reference to "The Miller's Tale" from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. A literate bunch we are in Red Sox Nation.
