SNAP OUT OF IT! Feb 14 2005


When will the American opposition start to ask what kind of return on investment they are getting? When will they start demanding better performance? What a waste and what a cost in broken hearts for the young, those just beginning to try and change the world. If the young are to save themselves (and us) they must refuse to be herded into a political process that is, in itself, their prison.

Even though there is evidence that Ohio was stolen, John Kerry has given up; conceded; thrown in the towel. There won’t be any lawsuits because he won’t allow it. Bush won the popular vote. If the 2000 election passed into history “as-is” it is certain that the 2004 election is zip locked. Fuggedaboudit! The people now performing that task of documenting electoral fraud in Ohio and elsewhere have safely made themselves historians and targets of lesser priority for Cheney and Rove. They are no longer activists.

There will be no successful suits over this election. The courts are rigged and lawyers are sea anchors. As I predicted a week after 9/11, every lawsuit since filed has been derailed, morphed, sidetracked or sabotaged from within. Any lawsuit over the 2004 election (assuming Kerry permitted it) would wind up in the Supreme Court. Has everyone forgotten Bill Rehnquist’s cancer or that the Neocons get to pick the next three justices?

HOWTO: Connect Mac OS X Panther laptop to Canon MP390 multi-function printer Feb 14 2005

My brother was having problems hooking up his Powerbook to a Canon MP390 multi-function printer/scanner/fax. Here is his write-up about how to successfully print to this (PC-only) printer:

So I have a Powerbook OS 10.3.8 and I needed to print a word document and my roommate only has a Canon MP390 which only works for PC’s. Not happy with this answer, I decided to check all printers that might be similar on the network. I was happy to see that their was a printer that prints pretty darn well.

Here is how I got there.

  1. Open your MS Word document
  2. Apple P
  3. Click on the Printer Scroll Button
  4. Edit Printer List….
  5. Add Printer
  6. Find your server and choose it
  7. Choose what ever printer you have or if you can click on Printer Model
  8. Choose CANON
  9. Find: CANON BJC 7000, CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.5 and add it

Now, you have a printer that is very close to the MP390 and it has worked just as well for me, printing color just fine.

Hope you find this helpful

Complete Mac OS 9.2 Graphic Design & Web Design workstation

This was my primary design workstation until I upgraded to a new Powerbook a couple of months ago and made the switch to OS X.

This is an excellent system for doing web or graphic design. The system currently has over 100 applications included, including every application you could want for doing professional-level graphic design and web design work. I will email you with a complete list of all the included software if you like. It is running the latest version of Classic OS 9.2, and is very fast. It is not recommended to load OS X on this machine (should be possible if you want to do so, but you would probalby want to upgrade the CPU.)

This has been maxxed out and represents a great value if you’re looking for a fully-equipped system running classic Mac OS 9.2.

Check out the listing and give me a shout if you’re interested. 🙂
