Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Jaguar

Finally bit the bullet and upgraded my iBook to Jaguar. I had such a horrible time when I upgraded Golem, that I was a bit reluctant. Fortunately, it went much more smoothly the second time around (it helps to know all the glitches beforehand!).

The only major breakage was expected: my spreadsheet, Mesa.app, can’t print under Jaguar, and my fruitless dealings with the company have lead me to the conclusion that it ain’t never gonna work under Jaguar.

I guess I’ll be looking into MarinerCalc instead.

My biggest disappointment is that (short of ponying up for a .Mac subscription) there is no way to sync address book and calendars between the two machines. The technology (SyncML) is there. But, at least for me, iSync serves no useful function except to make me wish I had a Bluetooth phone.

Dang! Next, I’ll be wanting Bluetooth luggage as well.
