Last chance for $90 Leopard

I don’t own a Mac.  I probably won’t ever own a Mac, though I can’t rule it out.  That said, I know that some people who read this are Mac users.  This is for you.

Micro Center has a $40 mail-in rebate on Mac OS 10.5 (aka Leopard).  This is about the best deal you can get on it.  The academic price is like $116, so this is even better than the discount that students and professors can get.  However, today is the last day for the rebate.  If you’re interested, go here to order it.

All clean

I had the CCD sensor on my K10D cleaned today.  I took it to Calumet, which is near our local mall and they cleaned it while I waited.  I’m glad to have it clean again because there was a really annoying “dark blob” that had appeared sometime in September that was ruining some of my shots.  Apparently, it was some kind of lubrication fluid or something that had gotten on the sensor.  The K10D has a nice sensor shake function that can shake dust off the sensor, but it doesn’t work for fluids.  Anyway, I’d like to avoid having to get my sensor cleaned professionally as much as possible, since it’s pretty expensive.  However, doing it myself is risky.  Without knowing what I’m doing, it would be pretty easy to scratch the sensor or damage the camera in some other way.  So, I’m looking for information on how to do it properly and what tools/supplies are best.  Any suggestions?
