Your mother knows very little about Macintosh products and related services

This is a list of Macintosh your mom jokes that I made eight years ago and never put anywhere. I think the world is ready now.


  1. Your mother thinks that slot loading iMacs have Mezzanine ports.

  2. I have noted on numerous occasions that your mother doesn't use
    option L when writing long lines of AppleScript.

  3. Your mother once confided in me that she has tried to install OS
    9 on a 68k Macintosh.

  4. Many people of reputable stature have told me that your mother bought
    more than seventy-two megs of ram for her 61xx Performa.

  5. I have serious doubts as to whether your mother knows the difference
    between Sawtooth and Yosemite motherboard designs.
  6. When porting a major game to OS X, your mother was caught making
    calls to Game Sprockets.

  7. Your mother bought O'Reilly's Missing Manual for iMovie.

  8. I couldn't help but notice that your mother has her Help balloons
    turned on.

  9. I feel it's important that you know that your mother insists that
    Sherlock was part of OS 7.6.

  10. Your mother thinks that the Newton is a new unit of measurement
    for weight!

Twitter

If something is worth saying, it's worth saying with more than 140 characters. And yes, I realize that this is less than 140 characters.

Metal Gear: Gamesaver

This is the first in a series of five unrelated shorts that I'm doing for atom.com. If you've ever played Metal Gear, I think you will find this funny. If you haven't, you will find it less funny, but still relatively funny, hopefully.

I am an internet hundredaire

I got a check from google the other day for a hundred dollars. You remember Double Feature Finder? Well, there are ads on it. Google doesn't bother cutting a check for anything less than a Benjamin, so this is the first time I've seen any money in DFF's three and a half year history. I'm going to go buck wild tomorrow and put it towards a new hard drive.
