:: Spotting the Leopard ::



:: Spotting the Leopard ::



Kudos to swishh, a handful of us gathered at zenhiao's abode.
It was a rainy sunday afternoon.
We were there to receive our brand new copy of the new Mac OS X Leopard.
While I wasn't planning on upgrading I reckoned that there were certain features worth trying.
Like the Time Machine and Cover Flow for the Finder.
I arrived on time only to realised that I was the earliest visitor.
M took out his Travel Scrabble and we ended up scrabbling.
I then realised (from M) that there was actually a useful application-game on Facebook.
Scrabulous allows any FB user to enjoy Scrabbling at his or her own pace.
Without having both (or more) to be online together.
I also realised that there are a total of 120 two-letter words.
Officially recognized by Scrabble and found in the Chambers Dictionary.

AD, AH, AR, AW, BI, ED, EF, EH, EL, EM, EN, ER, ES, EX, FA,
HA, HM, HO, LA, LO, MA, MI, MM, MO, OH, OO, OP, OW, PA,
PO, RE, SH, ST, TA, TI, UG, UH, UM, UN, UR, YO.

and

AA, AB, AE, AG, AI, AL, AX, AY, BA, BO, CH, DA, DE, DI, EA, EE,
ET FY, GI, GU, ID, IO, JO, KA, KO, KY, LI, MU, NA, NE, NU, NY,
OB, OD, OE, OI, OM, OS, OU, OY, PE, PH, PI, QI, SI, TE, UT,
WO, XI, XU, YA, YU, ZO.


Time to brush up my vocab.

On another note, I installed the Leopard last night.
The Time Machine started duplicating all 200gb worth of data into my HDD.
I tried to switch back from Firefox 2 to Safari 3.
But after an extremely long wait for my DBS applet to load, I removed Safari 3 from my dock.
I am sure there other useful features in Leopard;
I just need some time to spot them out.

Man!

I haven't received my copy of Leopard yet. :(

Have not bought the Leopard yet.

Will prob use student education for a discount. Cheep! Cheep! ehhehe.

Anybody has any comments on ILIFE08. Is is worth it?

u using Imac huh? good or not? looks nice..

How much is the Leopard? Thinking of upgrading too.

I got the family one. Not sure of individual retail price.

yo... how's leopard?

u think its worth the trouble uploading the new OS?
will it use up more space by duplicating existing stuffs in the harddisk?

I think it'll be for a good reason, to use the Time Machine, methinks.
