Dropping ACID(3)

So... uhh...yeah... w00t and such. The WebKit engine (the thing that powers Safari) has passed ACID 1, ACID 2 and ACID 3 tests* - They are the first team to release a publicly available engine that does so. Now of course the real question -- When will Apple release a new Safari based on the new WebKit? I want to see Safari 3.5 (or 4.0) within the next 3-4 months with a full ACID 3 (rendering) pass (and possibly a mobile version on the iPhone? That doesn't do very well currently). There is a lot of prestige and clout to be claimed by having the first officially released browser to pass all 3 ACID tests - It may even help make Safari the "Gold Standard" for web development, something that may help further drive Mac platform adoption. (Author's Note -- I'm still pissed about Safari 3.1, which broke ACID 2 compliance. I refuse to install that browser as it represents a significant regression from previous Safari releases - Safari holding the title of first browser to pass ACID 2. Get it together Apple QA!)

This news disappoints me bitterly!

I waited around. All day. I checked inside no fewer than a dozen eggs, and I even drove past a church. No Jesus. Not even a Zombie Jesus. I've been lied to by the church. Again. DAMNIT!

I hate my brain...

... It never turns off when I want it to. 3AM with the past staring me in the face and the future receding into the distance. Another sleepless night... And I'd give up forever to touch you 'Cause I know that you feel me somehow You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be And I don't want to go home right now And all I can taste is this moment All I can breathe is your life Sooner or later, it's over I just don't want to miss you tonight And I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand When everything's made to be broken I just want you to know who I am And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming Or the moment of truth in your lies When everything feels like the movies Yeah, you bleed just to know you're alive
