I need space

I tried to import some images from my digicam to my Mac today, and found out there was no room. Time to buy a new hard disk soon. However, thanks to a posting at the TidBITS-Talk discussion list, I found out about a lovely little utility for Mac OS X called Monolingual, which strips away all the unnecessary (for me) multi-language resources (Swedish, Japanese, etc.) from the operating system to save space in the meantime.

It saved me more than 400 MB. Yow. And, as neat way to pay for free software, it's sponsored by what looks like a pretty groovy café in San Francisco: Frjtz Fries. I plan to visit next time I'm there. Of course, last time I was in San Francisco was seven years ago, so who knows when that might be...

Oh, and I posted some photos of my band's August beachside shows on The Neurotics site.
