at the mild, thinly veiled request of red5, who thinks i might have some interesting tales to tell, today's journal.

woke up at an ungodly early hour at my lady fair's condo. after the morning ritual, she went back to sleep and i tried to make titanium toast (5.1.4) work on my brother's ibook with OSX 10.0.4 installed. four coasters and two grey hairs later, good lady woke up, kissed me, and went out to get danishes and java. didn't say (or suggest) "pay attention to me instead of that toy". and friends wonder why i am besotted. one coaster and one predjudicial shutdown later, i'm enjoying fresh java and we're discussing what kind of bicycle she could get as a replacement for her recently stolen one.

victoria, bc is a kind of cycling mecca. if you have fenders, you can pretty much cycle year-round. i used to work as a cycle courier here, and in the 7+ years of risking life and limb for other people's mail, there was only one day where the weather stopped me. anyways, bikes galore ==> bike thieves. grrr. more on this in a later entry.

she wandered off to her chiropractor and i wandered off home and started researching ways to possibly make the infernal cd burner work, or transfer the files to his home g4 (10.1) without having a crossover cable. not immediately obvious, may have to do some (gasp!) experiments (gasp!) and get realworld data.

returned my brother's ibook and burner and admitted defeat. purchasing a hub or router may be unavoidable.

brainwave hits six hours later. i could temporarily scavenge my own hub for this project.
oops. slow typing makes it ~midnight. don't want this to be tomorrow's journal. and, for the record:

    My grand pa is a long time mac nut. Once I remember he had to copy files from his computer to my moms laptop. What did he do? Plug in the external SCSI port of course.

    He could then share folders with the other mac using the SCSI as a network bridge. I wonder if current macs can do this over firewire. A 1.8m 6 to 6 firewire cable costs $20 US from apple. So you're not risking much unless of course you have one laying around from another firewire device like say from an iPOD.
