Double standards : Humility v.s. Cowardice

Blame your strengths on what you went through, you’re considered as being humble.
Blame your shortcomings on what you went through, you’re considered as being a coward.
Seriously, fuck you and your double standards, people.

Rest in peace uncle Jack.

Honourable Jack Layton, leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, passed away this morning at 4:45 AM from cancer. He was 61 years old.

Jack was a genuine, honest and big hearted man. Always smiling, hopeful, optimistic. He really cared about everyone. A man of justice, of generosity, who believed everyone could work together to achieve great things. He really, really was a great man.

People are mourning a man, not a politician. He was someone who you wanted to take in your arms and hug. Losing him is like losing an uncle. He was this lovely.

I want to show you some pictures of the man...

The most genuine, loving and caring stare ever.

Mac OS X annoyances and fixes.

Indeed, no matter what OS you use, there are annoyances that come with them.
On Mac OS, there isn't always an easy fix (as in, something that can be fixed in the System Preferences) for these minor annoyances so they require some commands to be run in the terminal. I will list these annoyances I encountered along with the terminal commands to fix them.

"Key repeat is broken!" "Key repeat doesn't work!" You will actually find that there are some keys that you can repeat and other keys that you can't. It's a new thing in Lion. The vowels, punctuation marks along with some other keys can be repeated, while some other keys can't. I personally don't see the utility of this. When is the last time you ssssaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ssssomeooonee ttttyyyppee liiiikkkee thiiiiss because they couldn't control their hands or sucked at typing? Yeah me too.
Fix : defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
This will enable key repetition for ALL keys.

"Where is xxx folder?" Some things require me to play with files and folders that Mac OS hides by default. It's rather annoying that there is no way to access them besides the terminal or Go > Go to Folder... in Finder because unlike Windows or Linux, Finder doesn't feature an address bar where you can manually enter the name of a hidden folder to go to it. >:|
Fix : defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES
This will show the hidden folders and files. To revert it, run the same command replacing YES with NO.

2.2GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7
500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200
8x Double-Layer SuperDrive
17" High-Resolusion Antiglare Display


I came loaded with Lion though.
So I am a bit disappoint.
I hoped it would come loaded with Snow Leopard and that they would let me update, so I could split my drive in 3 and have both a Snow Leopard and a Lion install.

But anyway.
