Briefly Enjoying Mac OS X 10.3.9

Safari in Mac OS X 10.3.9 is *SO* much faster it's ridiculous. Dave Hyatt is totally telling the truth. It makes, the most comprehensive lyrics database I've encountered on the net (despite the crappy user experience), actually bearable. Before Mac OS X 10.3.9, just opening the page was so painfully slow, probably because of JavaScript stuff on the page like the clock.

Heh, Apple's gradually doing more and more incremental updates to each major version of Mac OS X. If I remember correctly, there was 10.0.0 through 10.0.4, 10.1.0 through 10.1.5, 10.2.0 through 10.2.8, and now 10.3.0 through 10.3.9. What will the name of the 10th incremental update to Tiger be... 10.4.10? (Personally, I think that Apple would probably just avoid incrementing the version number entirely, and instead release a software update called a "Performance Update" or "Networking Update" or something like that.) I find it funny when people argue over whether 10.3.10 is "mathematically" the same as 10.3.1 or whether Apple would release a update.

... then again, I argue over semantics all the time. I need to stop doing that.
