I saw the funniest alert when I launched an application on my Mac this evening. It was telling me that a new version of the software was available.

No, that’s not the part that was funny. It seemed like I’d just clicked the “remind me later” button, when I noticed one of the bug fixes:

Fix a bug that caused “remind me later” software updates to appear too frequently.

That, my friends, is tres awesome. (The French Canadian influence of my wife’s family is starting to show. That or I’m feeling a little punchy this evening. It’s probably the punchy part. If I were really that serious about homage, I’d figure out how to get the little hyphen/accent to appear over the “e.”)

Give the gift of words.
