I finally sat down to try to get my parent's iPhoto to work again. I spent a couple of hours playing with this. I've got a VNC connection set up to their machine, but it's horribly slow. Their iPhoto library works on my machine, but didn't on theirs. It just hangs trying to open it. I gave up after scp'ing my copy of iPhoto over and deleting their prefs. bah!
Took off to meet up with gordonmessmer for lunch with his friend Rob. As Gordon and I were headed back to his place, my dad calls to thank me for fixing iPhoto. I was a little stunned but hey, whatever works! Gordon and I then stopped by his place to pick up his new DVD player to take back to exchange with one that has the right outputs. I picked up a battery charger that charges these special NiMH AA's in 15 minutes (it has a fan... freaky) and then dropped him off before heading home.
Picked Julie up after work and got some Taco Bell and came home.
