Eye candy, rolling stone, and the man on the mountain

Category : Technology/sisyphus.txt

I'm now working on the latest Leopard release (9A559, 21st September). It's looking good, the first version I can stand to look at - or work on - for any stretch of time. The previous releases were all plain butt ugly.

Leopard's looking like a Mac again. Something people could like using even more than Tiger. Give me eye candy anytime - when you think we were that close to disaster :-)

But I can't even start up Postfix now.

I feel like Sisyphus rolling the boulder up the mountain. When you finally get it to the top, you know you're going have to do it all over again, come tomorrow.

Albert Camus wrote a book - "The Myth of Sisyphus" - "a lucid invitation to live, and to create, in the very midst of the desert".
