Uninstalling Keyword Assistant fixes iPhoto hang

[X4U] Tiger breaks iPhoto

Ever since upgrading to Tiger, my iPhoto.app has just launched, and then hung eternally with The Spinning Beach Ball of Death™. Uninstalling an old version of “Keyword Assistant” fixed the problem immediately, and now I’m the happiest boy in the world.

(And, yes, I know that this will be useful to relatively few of you, but it was such a pain to me that I wanted to make sure the solution gets some Google Juice for others. Public service.)

Fixed for Tiger

(edit 2005-05-27) I was remiss not to mention that KA has been fixed for Tiger; a fresh version of Keyword Assistant can be obtained here.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
