In the summer of 2008, I was traveling through India, where I took a picture of the roots of this massive tree. I had some fun in Photoshop and inserted one of my favorite quotes.
VirtualBox is fantastic open-source software that allows you to operate a virtual machine with another operating system. Though it works on most platforms and can run most operating systems, I have a Mac and I needed a Windows OS to run Microsoft Visual Studio. It took a little while to figure out, but here’s a little tutorial on how to run Windows on a Mac for free. I’ll outline the steps to install VirtualBox, set up a virtual machine to run Windows XP, install some extra features, and enable file sharing between the host machine and the virtual machine.
I spent four lovely days in Rome during the summer of 2008, on world tour with the Dins. Amidst wayward sight-seeing adventures and raucous nights out, we sang a series of energy-filled concerts (including a particularly memorable event at the US Consul General’s pad). I took this photo from the back of a taxi en route to the Trevi Fountain, and I felt it encapsulated in a strange way my time in Roma.
