Happy Birthday to Mom!

It may be another birthday for her, but when you meet her you're more likely to think she's my older sister than my Mom.

I got OS X 10.1 yesterday morning -- I had ordered the full package from MacMall a couple days ago since they promised to FedEx it for Saturday delivery. It worked!

First impressions are very good. I was afraid that Frontier and Radio would be broken, but so far that hasn't been the case. Other people using Frontier with 10.1 are reporting similar good news.

I was looking for a serious speed boost with 10.1, and I got it.

Our numeral system is Arabic.

The Hindus invented (my hero) zero, then called sunya.
