Not Thinking Ahead.
G_A: Not going to upgrade to Leopard 10.5

iMorpheus: that makes absolutely no sense at all.
G_A: iBook G3 Clam, G3 Blue and White, Intel mini=Mac OS X 10.4.11 (.12?)
iMorpheus: so, if you buy new hardware you are going to install 10.4.11?
G_A: Never thought of that.

Shoegazing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia →
Yeah, I am all over shoegazing with good female vocals. Shoegazing: The British music press, e.g. NME and Melody Maker, called this genre “shoegazing” because the musicians in these bands often maintained a motionless performing style—standing on stage and staring at the floor while playing their instruments, hence the idea that they were gazing at their shoes.

I hope you are ready to be honest and I guess you can demand this from me too. I don’t want to meet in the future and to find out that you are 150 cm higher than me or that your seventh child is entering college this year. I want to find out everything...
