Japan and Israel were business trips, but I got to spend some time in the local culture, as well. I've also been to Latvia but just riding through on a bus so it doesn't count.
My wife really likes to travel, and I enjoy it, too, although I wouldn't have traveled nearly as much if it weren't for her.
Except you don't seem to be the type that's in any rush to upgrade to current technology.
It's not wise to extrapolate from a single data point. Just because I like one device the way it is doesn't mean I don't like to update other tech gadgets. It depends on the risks and benefits.
I was considering upgrading to Snow Leopard this weekend, but decided to wait until I return from a trip I'm taking next week. I don't want to spend my last night at home frantically trying to restore a Leopard backup to my MacBook Pro if something went wrong with the upgrade. Now I'll probably wait even longer, to see if this issue is resolved.
If only 3 people are still using Palm OS devices, then they must all be in my work group. Several of us still use Treo smartphones. Just because new devices use a different OS is no reason to ditch a perfectly good device if it fits your needs well. I like my Treo 755p very much.
My Treo was an easy way to keep my address book and calendar on my Mac synced with my Exchange data at work. This definitely would impact me if I upgraded to Snow Leopard.
I put together a Mac-Mini based HTPC using an EyeTV in February. The EB channels were broadcast in Clear QAM (I had already been able to receive them live with the QAM tuner in my TV for a couple of years). Three months later, shortly after turning off the analog feed for all EB channels, Comcast encrypted the digital EB channels. Now only the most basic of channels come over Clear QAM. Fortunately, Hulu picks up a lot of the slack. I think this move will simply erode cable market share in favor of distribution by the internet.
Actually, I think you mean Dune II, the first RTS from Westwood. It was released in 1992. And yes, it was a great game. It runs great on DOSBox, and once in a while I still play it.
Forget the 6 Million Dollar Man, does anyone else remember the 6 Dollar Man?
My wife and I have newborn twins and a two year old, so it's way over 12 hours per day.
Oh, wait, you meant at my job? That would be right about 8 hours on the dot (so I can get home to help take care of the kids). Of course, actual productive time during the work day is less than that, maybe 4 or 5 hours?
Crimson Editor is far and away my favorite Windows text editor.
On OS X, I use the Xcode text editor most of the time, but I don't like it as much as Crimson.
Or want to. My wife and I chose to live 11 miles from our workplace, so we could afford a house with a large yard with room for a garden, kids to play, and dogs. I'm not comfortable in cities. I don't like visiting them, let alone living in one.
It has just been discovered that research causes cancer in rats.
