Upcoming macosxhints' events... Site News
Despite my best efforts :), I've somehow been talked into into making a few public appearances over the next couple of months in various places. I'll be discussing some of my favorite OS X hints and apps, and perhaps providing a bit of information on my background with both OS X and the macosxhints site.

As it stands today, here's my schedule as I know it:
  • Thursday, June 3rd, 4:00pm Pacific time: An appearance on TechTV's The Screen Savers, discussing OS X hints and apps and more -- The Screen Savers is live television, so who knows exactly what's going to happen (he says, as he repeats the "Please, no kernel panics during the show!" mantra over and over!). I don't know exactly when I'll be on during the show, and the exact content is still being finalized ... and did I mention it's live? :)

  • Sunday, June 13th: I'll be attending and presenting at The Rogue Valley Mac Expo, an event in the gorgeous Rogue River Valley area of southern Oregon (Grant's Pass, Oregon, to be precise). My presentation is from 9:45am - 10:45am, and I'm planning on showcasing a few of my favorite third-party apps and most useful hints, and discussing a bit about the technology and operation of the site. This will also be our family's first long car trip with our nearly one-year-old daughter Kylie, as Grant's Pass is a good three-plus hour drive (wish us luck!).

  • Wednesday, July 14th: I'll be presenting at Macworld Expo Boston; you can view a synposis of my presentation on the Macworld event site -- but it's basically the same general content of useful hints and apps, hopefully presented in a non-boring manner, followed by some Q&A.
With my 'other' work schedule, I don't get a ton of chances to do stuff like this, so I'm really looking forward to these events. Please feel free to drop by and say hello if you'll be in the area for any of these...

See you on Screen Savers. Unfortunatley the 14hour jump across the puddle, then cross-country to Boston, means I won't see you at MacWorld.

I lived and worked in Grants Pass at the Daily Courier for two and a half years. It's a wonderful city. Always had a hint of the scent of burnt wood in the air.

Make sure to take a mail boat ride on the Rogue River if you have the time. The Rogue is gorgeous. They start right under the bridge in the middle of town on the main street going north and south.

And don't eat at the Thai restaurant. I had a roach in my drink last time I ate there. :-P
