Alsoft DiskWarrior for MacOSX offers scavenge mode
DiskWarrior Scavenge mode: If you hold down the Option key in DiskWarrior’s window, the Rebuild button changes to read Scavenge. In Scavenge mode, DiskWarrior will look at the entire directory structure, not just those portions that are damaged. Note that the technique used in Scavenge is the same as that used in Rebuild; it’s just that all of the directory is examined. As such, you only need to use Scavenge when the disk’s directory is fine, but you suspect that there’s data missing. As explained in the DiskWarrior manual: Therefore, you do not need to make DiskWarrior scavenge the directory except when DiskWarrior states “All file and folder data was easily located” in the DiskWarrior Report, but you suspect that files and/or folders are still missing from the replacement directory.
BTW: even though DiskWarrior is still my number one tool for fixing problems with hard drives, don´t forget there is no support for Intel Macs and RAID volumes, yet.

portable Macs can use internal WUXGA displays
The hardware modification on a MacBook Pro is even easier, as you only need to exchange the low res screen with a highres screen of the same size. Unfortunately, MacOSX does not automatically recognize the new display. There seems to be some issues with different vendor codes, that are missing from the standard MacOSX install, but with some patches this issue should be resolved soon. I really can´t wait to finally get myself a MacBook Pro 15 with internal 1900*1200 display.

2-port USB controller 1.1 (USB 2.0 devices supported at speed close to native) AC'97 compatible sound card, sound recording is supported
So just looking at the specs it should be possible to use the IPdrum mobile Skype cable on MacOSX via Parallels Desktop for Mac. I will try to test this scenario ASAP. Has anybody tried this already?

Apple announces Mac Pro and Xserve with Quad Intel Xeon chips
The Mac Pro has four hard drive bays, two optical drive bays and is available as built to order with 2GHz CPUs and 160GB hard drive for 2124$. 2.6GHz and 3GHz CPUs are available, too.
The new Xserve can use either S-ATA or SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives and has a miniDVI port on the motherboard for attching a monitor without using one of its two eight-lane PCI Express slots. One slot can be configured as a PCI-X slot for compatibility with older expansion cards.

Pirate Party founded in Austria
Their program: free culture, protection of privacy and a reform of the patent system. The first Pirate Party was founded January 2006 in Sweden, and now this movement is spreading like wildfire all over Europe.
BTW: their website is mostly in German, but there is a one page English PDF document. It is a PDF with the text saved as an image. I had to manually retype it, so people with mobile phones, PDAs and other small screen devices can read it, too:
Pirate Party Austria
Compared to the ongoing developments in the information society the state is reacting very slow to changes. Austria and the rest of Europe are following a rather dangerous path in terms of privacy, copyright and patent systems. Being part of a large international network, the newly born Austrian Pirate Party stands for human rights in the digital era.
What do we want?
Laws which are passing now and relate to IT are setting up our way in terms of cultural constitutional development for the next decades. Europe is now on a rather direct way to becoming a surveillance state. We want to avert that! Monopolies and patents are preventing innovation, progress, research and development which Europe is needing desperately to continue to compete on an international level.
Meanwhile the music industry is issuing tons of lawsuits which affect mainly young people and children. We demand the industry to stop making whole parts of the Austrian people to criminals!
