Pete.pkg

I received a box from UPS the other day that was completely square. Doesn't sound like news, but that is extremely rare -- about 99.999% of all boxes that have been shipped to me have been rectangle.

As is always the case, the Haus Interactive office cat (Mr. Angelica Peterson) made the obligatory inspection of the contents. While doing so it dawned on me that she had just set herself up for the perfect photo opp.

Below is the comparison between the Unix installation "Package" icon and what I have titled "Pete.pkg".

The Wireless Relay

If you have a Mac outfitted with 2 wireless cards you can use that instead of an Airport Express to extend your wireless connection to your other nearby devices. Here's How:

STEP FIVE: (optional): Choose a name and security options for this ad-hoc network
STEP SIX: Click "Start"


Once running you will see your airport icon change to an arrow to indicate that you are broadcasting your connection:
