The Mil-lemon Train

8:50am – arrive at train station with intention of catching the 8:57 to get to a station which will let me catch the express 9:07, which will get me to work by 10-ish.

9:00am – announcement made telling commuters the 8:57 is running 20 mins late. Go to plan B: wait for 9:14 train.

9:04am – watch express train zoom past.

9:14am – finished coffee and make up application. Look up and see the 9:14 which happens to be a millenium train approaching.

9:16am – look up, train in same spot as 2mins ago approx 500m from the platform. WTF?

9:20am – train hasn’t budged. Boy these signals must be really fucked up!

9:22am – announcement made saying station don’t know WTF is going on.

9:25am – announcement made saying the millenium (mil-lemon) train has broken down. I grab keys and drive to work.

    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.

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.
