Cave Men and Ice Powers: Danielle Johnson

On 2012/01/23, > I’d say it probably depends on the climate, couldn’t they just put whatever they’d want to freeze outside their cave?

Things I don’t like about OSX

I recently started a new job, and my desktop at my workstation is a Mac, running OSX 10.6. This is the first time I’ve spent more than an hour on a mac since 2nd grade, when I played with an Apple II. The process has been a constant sting of Google searches (I had to […]
