[jules' pics] Lions

Lion at Kenchoji

So what do you make of Lion, Apple's new operating system? I find it needs a lot of taming.

Lion at Kenchoji

It is just little things - like Safari automatically spell checking my beautiful English and turning it into some foreign crap. I thought it was Blogger - but no it was Safari itself! And then there's the way the applications automatically reopen with all the crap windows that you only closed the app to get rid of. Those issues are fixable, but the lack of a "save as..." in TextEdit and Preview seems permanent... I used to use that often to work out where files were located and then save new versions in the correct location - now I keep losing files. Need a "show in Finder" replacement. Getting the Library to reappear in Finder was easy enough, but the greyed out icons (and lack of personalised icons) on the sidebar seem unfixable and that slows navigation down.

Why lion statues in Japan which never, ever had any lions?

James Annan said...

Probably in this case because the sculptors couldn't get any tengu to pose for them.

I'm not sure when there were last native lions in Scotland either. Rumour has it they were going to draw a haggis on that flag but ate it first.

Cupertino is famed for its big cats, of course.

I am _so_ grateful to early adopters of new hardware and software.

James Annan --- Cupertino? The tar pits are in La Brea.

Tamamushi-iro :-)

I meant the top piktur. Was there something off to the left? But even so, you could have cropped it to the right.
