Quick Updates for a Hectic Week

There's a lot going on here at Sophie's place, too much to allow for much in the way of updates here.

Still, there's news, in case you missed it.

iPhoto update. Apple has shipped iPhoto 5.0.4, an update to an update. Version 5.0.4 fixes a bug that was introduced in the short-lived 5.0.3, which fixed a color-related bug that has been causing fits among some Tiger users.

I have yet to encounter that color-related bug. My primary iPhoto library is still living on a Panther-based machine; I use this G5 for about 32 hours a day, and I have a lot of stuff hanging off of it: graphics tablet, film and flatbed scanners, two printers, and upwards of a terabyte of storage. And I just don't have time for an adventure in updating right now.

My other Macs—a dual-processor G4 testbed machine and my PowerBook—are running Tiger, and are loving it, as am I. One of these days I'll take the plunge on my main box.

GarageBand update. On Monday, Apple delivered GarageBand 2.0.2, an update that improves Tiger compatibility (see?) and fixes various bugs.

Apple eNews update. Woot! Today's issue of Apple eNews covers the Life Poster for Tiger project that I wrote about earlier this month.

And with that, it's back to our regularly scheduled madness. Be good to each other!
