Mac Users: Where’s Your Dock?

Perhaps the best feature of a Mac OS computer is the dock. It functions somewhat like the taskbar and quick launch bar on Windows machines, but adds some neat features, such as being able to move from the bottom of the screen to the left or right sides; customizable size, depending on what you like (I like the larger dock); bouncing icons; and adding/removing shortcuts to programs and folders easily and more!

One thing I love about the dock is how customizable it is – you can put it on the left, the right or the bottom of your screen and you can hide it until you need it or always let it show. So… Mac users, how do you use your dock?

Having a blog is always a joy, but when you take a few days off, it is amazing how the emails and comments pile up!

I spent the weekend with some friends at a conference, and one couple was celebrating their 25th anniversary. I gave them a coffee maker, because that was the only gift I could get at the last minute and easily carry with me upstate NY.

There are plenty of geeky things in the works for this week, but I want YOU to do is tell me in the comments what you’d like to see in the near future – or any questions you’d like me to answer for you!

Twitter Apps to Keep You Twitting

Geek GirlNot only did Twitter update its interface over the weekend, but I have been experimenting with various methods of updating my Twitter account. I never thought I’d get into Twitter – simply because I didn’t “get it” but now, I am addicted! I love reading other people’s tweets and corresponding with people around the world in a less regimented environment than this blog, for example!

I have come to truly appreciate the concept of “microblogging” – but read more at Wikipedia if you don’t know what Twitter is.

Do you Digg and Stumble on Request?

DefeatedEveryone wants internet fame, myself included. Perhaps one of the most popular ways to get internet fame today is to hit the front page on Digg, get a billion and twenty five Stumbles (thumbs up) on StumbleUpon.

There are many ways to get internet popularity – but I’ll focus on the two that I think conflict and complement each other the most. Digging and Stumbling upon request from the author (or a friend), or only Digging and Stumbling articles that you genuinely enjoy.
