Mac Gimp

Woohoo! In case you missed my tweet, the GIMP is now available as a native Mac application. I downloaded and installed this morning, and I'm thrilled to report that it fixes every one of my complaints about the old version (which required X11). It looks nicer and more Mac-like; the shortcuts all use CMD instead of CTRL; and you don't have to click on each window to change focus. If you use GIMP on a Mac, I highly recommend installing this one.

For those who don't know, the GIMP is an Open Source image editing program. Basically, it's Photoshop but it's free instead of hundreds of dollars.

Gender Differences in Fat Metabolism

Gender Differences in Fat Metabolism - Interesting. I have noted several times now that when I lose weight, it tends to come off my upper body (around the rib cage) first. And no matter what I do, I can't seem to slim down my chunky thighs. It's also very evident that my body tends to hold on to weight in general a lot more than the Snook's. (His belly is almost gone!) MDA makes the case that this is natural and, if anything, means that my body is probably pretty healthy.
