Really, the Nook Touch is the best damned eInk device out there!

Video: Nook Touch Running Classic Mac OS

Here it is, the proof everyone needed to see (no audio):

Showing how the mac works on the nook. It has a few quirks, but overall it’s pretty neat. I even had Myst running the other day. I figured out eventually.. (after I made the video) that if the command key is pressed in, you can’t type anything in a game or application. Also if you notice in the darts and lemmings, the contrast is low. This can be adjusted but it takes a minute of sporadic tapping to bring up the contrast settings. This wasn’t happening in the old version of NoRefresh. Anyways, mac on a nook!

This Is How It Is

Dr. Carmella’s Guide to Understanding the Introverted

That is why all your requests to meet get a No.

I have X amount of energy during the day, even putting myself into overdrive with phenylalanine and chocolate (which I’ve been doing just about daily now). My brain uses more damn energy than my body.

And then you want to come along and subtract from the day’s energy allotment by meeting? I’d have to start taking frikkin drugs for that. I’m running overcapacity as it is, risking heart attack and diabetes. And I’m not about to drop drugs to add a risk of schizophrenia to the mix!

The rest of you can spend a day outside among people and feel refreshed. I return home, curl into a ball, and begin to have a fever, for fuck’s sake. That’s how draining it is.

That illustration also reminds me I need to take up hissing.
