City Fail For Free

A joke for your amusement: City Rail! (b-boom chiing!)

I’m not going to go into too much detail on the bullshit that has been subjected to us weary commuters. Driver strikes, gas leaks, cancellation,s etc, etc, etc. Good thing I got me an iPod, that’s all I’m gonna say.

So, to bring some sort of grin to our faces and extra dollars back in our wallets, City Rail will be offering (drum roll please): Complimentary Travel for Regular Commuters. Further details here: How To Redeem Your Free Travel.

City Rail, I would say thanks but I won’t. You’ve fucked up too much of late. We commuters deserve this as well as a reliable public transport system, not one that goes screwy when there’s some rain or it’s too hot or whatever.

So now that just leaves the question of what to do with my extra $37 next week. Let’s see, a cd, or dvd, or drinks, or astro boy figures, or kenshin figures, or new headphones for iPod, or more frangipani sea salt body scrub (don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it), or it could go towards my monthly massage… who knows at this stage. The possibilities are as endless as the value of a $37 weekly rail ticket.

OOOHHH!! Check this out a feedback form on City Rail service. Do I really need to tell you what to do with this, my angry hate filled friends?

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.

    Not so much a CityRail fuck up as it is the fault of Carr and Costa who are happily screwing CityRail into the ground and blaming everyone but themselves. Pricks
