Yikes! An adjective escapes me. That is an affront to all that is good and holy. DoT - Please do not inflict this design on the people of Hawaii. We will do it for free in the interest of the public good!
Did you ever end up getting a Mac? I have had to pass up too many opportunities lately because I'm Mac-less. I'm going to the Apple store tonight and I'm pretty certain that I'm not coming home without one.
Jeez, where do I begin. I've been obsessed over sweetcron since I found out he was turning it into an application. It's very raw, still... and hard to share plugins. But an awesome feat. I worried it was going to be vapor ware.
Currently it's not so simple to install, configure(i.e. get rid of yong's face) but if you have an open editor to your live files, and a penchant for pain (nuking your blog) then you should be fine.
It does exactly what it says it will... by publishing your lifestream and all aggregates of feeds of data you generate while online. Some of it can become bothersome, for example: do I really want people to see when I play a video game, or that I played it for 6 friggin hours?
Either way it's completely configurable, and you control what makes it to the front page (though it's carte blanch, and no queueing for review).
I don't see why you can't take a stab at it, get over the rush, and then go back to whatever else you were doing.
The next major point release should have it nice and stable, AND hopefully a better theme support system -- he seems to have put in difficulty points to limit "entropy" or every blogger hopping onto the systme. *shrug*
