Facebook Lists

I've just spent 20 minutes or so adding friends to two lists on Facebook: "Friends & Family" and "Golf." I thought that posts could be made available to people based on the list in which you've put them, but I can't seem to find that option. Is it available somewhere? Am I missing it somehow?

Oldie but a Goodie

Steve Jobs in 1997.

In October I implemented Paging Keys on The Sand Trap forum. I used this GitHub repository. It's now MIA… any idea where it's gone? I've backed up a copy of the paging keys JavaScript file here: If someone can find its new home I'd be appreciative, as I'm missing the directions (not that they'd […]

In addition to solving this problem, it's a little bit more secure to leave all of those buttons unchecked.

Bye Dotster, Hello GoDaddy

I have a lot of domains up for renewal at about the same time - late August. Dotster loves to charge about $16 or $17 to renew domains. For two years, it'll run me about $460 just for the essential domains. I can transfer the domains to GoDaddy and get a year of renewals on […]

I type in "apple" to go to and the stupid thing auto-completes a news story from CNN about Apple. Or I type in "directv" and I get a URL on about DirecTV. The URL should always take precedent, I think. I rarely want to search the way it wants to - by keywords. […]

Adobe vs. Apple

See "Safari" anywhere on that one flower to the left? Hmmm… didn't think so. Got two Chromes though!


Who says "Macintosh" anymore?

This bug - what else can you call it when a rather popular browser just completely drops support for a somewhat common way to encode an incredibly popular file type - cost me several hours of time. JPEGs encoded in the CMYK simply show up as the little red "x" with no explanation whatsoever. I […]

Large MySQL Databases

I'll search the web later for answers, but I thought I'd put this up now and see if anyone had any more directed things so I could narrow my focus a bit. I have a MySQL database that's now 1 GB in size. It has 235 tables, the largest four of which are 263.0 MiB, […]

A few months ago I was looking for a Color Laser Printer. Due to a strong recommendation (and an incredibly cheap price of $119), I've ended up with an HP OfficeJet Pro 8000. It prints via WiFi and I've already printed some sheets, so I'm happy so far. Reviews on are middling. The average […]

iPad Launch Day

It's iPad Launch Day, and I remain 100% entirely unenthused. Between my combination of Mac Pro upstairs, iPhone with me always, and MacBook Pro downstairs by the couch, I have no need at all for an iPad. I will buy one - likely very quickly - when I can get most of my magazine subscriptions […]

No Time for Podcasts Lately

I used to have plenty of time for podcasts. Two hours or so per day, at any rate - Buzz Out Loud, This Week in Photography, and a few others. When I was caught up, I'd have time to listen to This American Life. Lately, no time. I'm tired of telling iTunes to keep downloading […]

I may be printing in color quite a bit soon, and ideally in a way that looks crisp and professional, so I'm looking at potentially buying a color laser printer. What will I be printing? Some photo content, but also some text and some charts and graphs. I haven't done the research, but something tells […]
