Panic Update

Panic Logo
For those who are interested, I'd like to post a quick update about the latest happenings here at Panic, my employer and the world's #1 Mac software company on the corner of NW 10th and Glisan!

Transmit 3.5   (And, subsequently, 3.5.1.) Wade, Will, Ian and Les put an amazing amount of work into Transmit 3.5 — it's one of our internally-infamous minor-major updates that we probably should have charged for! Oh well — it feels good. We've added some incredible new features (my favorite being "Edit in Whatever"), and fixed a ton of issues, and added Universal Binary (Intel) support. Since it's a free update for Transmit 3 owners, there's literally no reason not to use it. Literally. Steve has a great write-up on what's new.

Katamari T-Shirts Back In Stock   The initial two batches of these Keita Takahashi-designed, Namco-licensed, video-game t-shirts sold out almost ridiculously quickly. Well, good news — our third shipment of Katamari Damacy t-shirts has come in, meaning that every single Katamari shirt is now in stock (at this moment), and ready to ship very quickly! If you haven't ordered one so far, now's your chance! (And don't miss the new flash game...)

Unison 1.7.5   Unison, of course, is our Mac OS X newsreader, allowing you to read and download the shocking wealth of stuff floating around on Usenet. 1.7.5 is even better — Dave and Tim found and fixed a number of issues and weird little things, and have boldly proclaimed this release of Unison to be very good indeed. Again, a free upgrade! (And no, you didn't miss 1.7.4, we skipped to 1.7.5. Don't ask.)

MacBreak   Is there anything in this world more cringe-inducing than hearing your own retarded, recorded voice? Yes: seeing yourself on video! Hooray! If you've always wanted to see an extremely short Macworld Expo interview with yours truly, thanks to the new (and cool) Internet-based MacBreak show, your extremely unlikely wish has been granted. Just download episode one via iTunes, and skip ahead to about 19:50. Genuine thanks to Amber and the MacBreak crew for stopping by our booth! (I can't watch it again so I hope it went OK.)

WWPD   'nuff said.

Marinepolis   Panic's favorite Sushi restaurant. Many locations in Japan. Seven in America. Conveyor belt, cheap food nirvana. And now? A new location — two blocks from our office. Yes, life is incredibly good. Mike has eaten there every day this week. The problem? It's really put a kink in our quest for new office space... because we don't want to move. Ever.


Marinepolis really is a most delicious and inexpensive sushi restaurant.

I eat there every chance I get. MmmmmmmMmmMmMm.

Funny, I was just introduced to Marinepolis in Bellevue a few days ago. It's nothing compared to I Love Sushi, but the pricing is totally unbelievable. I guess it helps that their restaurant is in one of the worst locations in the area: A run-down building off to the side of the high-class Bellevue Square Mall.

Man, I wish you guys had some kind of package deal for owning all your products. But I guess it would be too late for me, now that I've bought three of them.

That 'WWPD' bracelet is so awesome! I want one!

Marinepolis was the reason I moved to Portland, Cabel Sasser was the reason I left. COINCIDENCE!?

You bastard, I was back down in Portland this weekend. You deliberately waited until I was back before posting about new cheap sushi place.
