It's a......Leopard Special! No Picks this week except......... The pick from the shownotes writer! Make your Cocoa Del.Icio.Us with Cocoalicious, THE way to use on the mac. Back to my mac is cool, Leo uses the new Alex voice to fool his kids with phrases like "who am i, why am i here etc", note, Leo's kids were fooled for about 3 seconds, and congratulations to Merlin on Little Eleanor Flannery Mann (and kudos to merlin, for buying the domain name before the domain-name-squaters!)

  • The finder: is the last Tsar, is Anastasia, Is a hemophiliac. Basically, it needs a big recode.
  • Quick Look should be available EVERYWHERE! However, according to apple, Quick Look is easily extensible and has a standardized plug-in architecture.
  • Scott: How long is it until little niggling mac whines are found for Leopard. Answer (from shownotes): 00 Hours.00 Minutes.00 Seconds, just ask Merlin Mann about ical.
