Mac OS X Lion
I’m sure many of you are having this issue early on. After doing some research, I found out that the Reverse Mouse Scroll Direction was not a default function as I said it might be in my previous post.
Here’s how you change it:
- Simply go to Preferences
- Select Mouse Preferences
- Then Un-Check the box at the top right of the window.
That’s all it takes and then you’re back up and running like before.

Hola Everyone. So I had the pleasure of downloading Mac OS X Lion and right off the bat all I can say is “so far so good“. I’m impressed by many of the features, that is with the exception of one. It looks like the scroll wheel direction change will take some getting used to, but I’ll get into that later.
The Download itself from the Mac App Store, only took about 20 minutes and then an additional 35 minutes or so for the install.
Advice: Do what you need to do on your computer before you re-start and begin installation, because it takes awhile.

Last week my home was burglarized during the day while I was away. The losers made away with my television, an Xbox 360 along with a couple of games, 2 pairs of sunglasses and a ring. It’s apparent that they were in and out within minutes. To my satisfaction, they did leave behind the most valuable of all my possessions… the workstation. The first response to this was, “At least they didn’t take my computer… too many wires I guess“. Maybe I got “lucky” this time.
As a result of these recent events, I’ve decided to protect my investment from any future mishaps that may occur. I’ve purchased renter’s insurance from State Farm for $15 dollars a month. This covers all of my possessions regardless of theft, flooding or fire for up to $35,000 dollars after a $500.00 deductible. Not bad!
I’m also taking out a $10,000 dollar policy geared specifically toward the workstation itself. There is no deductible. If something happens to it, I get $10,000. This policy runs about $9 per month.
My advice is this: Get Renters or Home Insurance. We’ve all worked long and hard to build our home workstations. Protect your investment. Also, get a nice fireproof safe to protect paperwork and jewelry… you could also throw a couple of external hard drives in there while your at it.

Well you might want to check out this free, but fantastic site that has saved my ass on many occasions.
I was first introduced to stock.xchng while still in school. I needed a couple of photos for a 4 minute piece I was putting together. A teacher suggested this site and I’ve been using it ever since…
Now, don’t get me wrong, the images on this site are decent, and will get you by, but If you truly want better quality photos this site gives you 10 additional images to choose from, from istockphoto.com that you can then of course purchase.
Here’s a title sequence created by ohello.tv
for SIFF 2011
What I liked about it:
- The Music
- The Color Selection
- And of course The Dramatic “Sailor Moon Style” Animation
