Snow Leopard.

209.365, originally uploaded by iMachias.

So as I mentioned last night, the latest version of Mac OS X (10.6), also known as “Snow Leopard” was released today. The ‘family pack’ arrived by FedEx as promised. So far I have upgraded two of the Macs in the house, I have two more to go tomorrow.

I’ll chat about it more in a techy blog entry, but so far, so good.

I was asked by someone what “Snow Leopard” was today and I found that question to be delightful. For those not familiar with Macs, “Snow Leopard” is the code name for OS X, which is like Windows on other PCs. “Snow Leopard” is the latest version of the Mac operating system, much like Windows 7 is the latest version of the Windows operating system.


It’s the weekend, so it’s time to dance. I have recently discovered a wide selection of dissertations, analyzations and uncanny inspections of various ABBA recordings strewn throughout the internet. So I decided to feature this remix of “Dancing Queen” from YouTube, which includes the “lost lyrics” of the second verse, lifted from a documentary video from the 70s and remixed by audiophiles across the world to make it fit back into the song. It’s kind of neat.

Here’s ABBA with “Dancing Queen”. (Listen carefully around 2:48)
