  1. Montage screenwriting software for Mac OS X now available as Public Beta

    Oh goody! Now I can get working in earnest on “The Sales Guy”, a tongue-in-cheek, based-on-fact story of certain players in the software industry.

    Not sure if it should be a comedy or tragedy though (or both). Any suggestions?

  2. Dead Squirrel, if MDN didn’t pimp developers’ software you wouldn’t be posting a comment on a website that would otherwise not exist. (Unless run by some teenager with lots of time, and no bills.)

  3. I’ve seen quite a few dead squirrels. I don’t remember any of them having an opinion. Just a frozen expression of surprise and a really bad smell. A lot like some of the people in the accounting department.

    Careful Ampar; my new girlfriend works in the accounting department (sexy CPA I know)

  5. “Montage? Isn’t that French for a cheese variety platter?”

    um, no. According to Tiger’s Oxford, it’s:

    Dictionary
    montage |mänˈtä zh; mōn-; mō n-| noun the process or technique of selecting, editing, and piecing together separate sections of film to form a continuous whole. • a sequence of film resulting from this : a dazzling montage of the movie’s central banquet scene. • the technique of producing a new composite whole from fragments of pictures, text, or music : the play often verged on montage. ORIGIN early 20th cent.: French, from monter ‘to mount.’

  6. There is nothing worse than having to explain a joke.
    O.K., removing knitting needles from your eyes after accidentally stumbling over your drunk grandmother might be worse. Kafka had it easy.
