Sharks, Macs, Telescopes, and Running
By marchamilton on Aug 30, 2006
I'm on vacation this week, and on vacation in Hawaii no less, so why am I online and not out swimming? Certainly it isn't today's press rumors that Eric Schmidt is joining Apple's board in preparation for a Sun-Apple merger. Not going to lose rays over that. Two days and I've done my favorite run twice. Lots of new building in Puako, at least a half dozen new homes going up on the oceanfront, and someone paved the entrance and put up a gate (open 7 am to 8 pm) in front of one of the local's no longer very secret local surf spot, but other than that not much has changed. Unfortunately, a 6 foot tiger shark has been making its home the last few days in the bay in front of the hotel, and the beach is closed to swimming. Thank goodness for running. But you can't do that all day, so I'm about to head off to the Keck Observatory. They actually want to buy a few Sun computers, even though Mac OS is getting Dtrace and Solaris doesn't yet have iTunes. My advice to Eric. Port iTunes to Solaris and we will talk. Oh yeh, and check with Dell on that Intel only strategy.
