I think the fact they both use MAC kind of gives away their haxishness

I think MAC comps are like expensive cars. You get one to show people you have money to waste.

Well ... I would have phrased that a little bit less harshly, but I assume, SwordMaster, that you have not used a Mac for any significant period of time. Yes?

I use them everyday. I can tell you that in relation to the craft of writing it has no effect on the result.

I like MAC the same way I like luxuray cars. They are so nice to look at and very cool with all the neat gadgits and cool features that do not change much in terms of end results, other then speed. Speed limit on all roads = computer user productivaty ratio avg.

Most people use computers for : email, interwebz, maybe some WoRdZ and a few other applications that MAC has no advantage in other then "coolness" factor

Hey if I was rich I would own a few MACs and a couple really cool cars too, but Im not so I drive a Mazda and has a few PCs.

Now unleash the MAC dogs, il do anything to get this forum more active!

:lol:

NOT quite. ;)

Since you mention cars, SwordMaster, I remember reading this great comparison a few years back about how no one would put up with a car that ran like a computer running the Windows system. Something about the engine freezing/coming to a stop every few miles. Having to reinstall the engine every week or so. Viruses, etc. You know, that sort of thing. It was fairly amusing and I'd look for it but this sort of silliness got old a long time ago.

As for the main point of it—trying to get the forum more active?—why is that even an issue? (That sounds like Dunenewt and the boys over on FED2K.)

I mean, we're not in some kind of activity competition with anyone, are we? We're not going to get kicked off the server if we don't have a certain number of posts per day or week, right?

What does it matter? :?

It's not 1997 any more. These days, it's a sad, tired, dull, meaningless debate waged mostly by douchebags.

Sounds like a classic old Neal Stephenson essay:

Very funny stuff.

What does the Mac vs. PC debate matter now anyway? Intel has taken over both of them.

Macs are just the more people-friendly computer marketed in catchy, branded adverts and a rainbow assortment of eye-catching colors for the fashion conscious, soy chai-sipping, Matrix-driving hipster demographic. So eat up you trend whore! :)

Hey all! I just installed a read-only mobile version of Jacurutu. Just go to this address on your phone's web browser:

mo/

Read-only means that you cannot log in or post with it, just view what's already here. It's a suboptimal solution, but I figured I'd install it until I can find something more fully featured.

Enjoy!

I can't make it through this Kevin J. Anderson shit. Especially not after enjoying the very entertaining Iain M. Banks video you posted on TAU.

The thing about the Banks video is that although he has this wry, self-deprecating manner. you can tell that he is intelligent as hell and takes his writing very seriously. KJA tries to sound like he's an accomplished writer, but just doesn't have the confidence to pull it off. The almost-pleading quality at the end of his commercial about TI was just embarrassing.

I couldn't make it past a minute of the KJA video. I so enjoyed the Banks vid earlier today, I have zero patience for listening to that walrus-rimming Anderson talk. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow just to see what you mean.

Comparing the two, Iain simply comes across as genuine and personable. Here's a guy equally at home talking about the farthest flung science fiction or chatting football over beers at the local pub.
Kevin comes across as artificial, impatient and always trying to sell you on something. He's also boring as a fucking stump.

You will have to load the page once, close your browser, then it will appear. It draws the header only once then assumes that it never needs updating.

For those of you who have been pasting links to "jacurutu.com" instead of "www.jacurutu.com" around the web we have now fixed the referrals so that they come here instead of to the distant soil main page. No need to go back and fix any of them.
