producer/consumer challenge

I’d like to challenge producers (grocery, packaging, everyone) and consumers to make/buy products that are

1. Resealable
2. Recyclable

Too often, the items for sale require you to store them in wasteful products (tinfoil, etc). It would be great if containers were resealable. I haven’t researched this, but glass jars with metal tops seem to be a good choice (while pastic is recyclable, seems most lids are not).

Also, some portion of the container (or forbid the entire thing) is not recyclable. Bread comes in pastic wrap which as fas as I know is not recyclable. Wheat thins come in cardboard which is recyclable, but the pastic inside is not.

Consumers need to act by buying only products that support these features.

Mac UI: Tab Focus

I’ve been using this mac for a bit and its SUPER GOD DAMN annoying that you can’t tab into select boxes, or between dialog options (Save, Don’t Save, Cancel). Turns out there’s an option for it, not enabled by default:

I don’t think the 1 button mouse leaves Steve’s hand.

I’m so happy Hedon@ISCABBS posted that link.

Where’s my RAM?

I bought (awhile ago)

Crucial 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) CT12864Z40B – OEM

That plus the

mushkin 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel

Should be 2GB, but I’m only getting 1.5GB.

This is on my Asus A8N SLI Deluxe mobo.

The important part of the manual is:


I have the modules installed like so:

A1 A2 B1 B2
M  E   M  C

Where M=Mushkin, E=empty, C=Crucial.

How should I arrange this so I get all 2GB?

Taxing your Tip

We had a very good brunch at Coastal Kitchen, but because our party was 6 people, they automatically added in 18% tip. No biggy except they charged the tax after the tip.
