Tiger, evolvr, Domain Names

I took that video on my phone and sent it to Dave. He found it amusing enough to make into a video. The domain name is an interesting one. It was bought at auction because it lapsed awhile ago. Long story short and lots of parts left out, but why on earth does someone […]

The Noun Project Symbols in the public domain, many of which could be used in software projects. They're all monotone black, but that's how you want 'em. They're also all .svg files, which may not be how you want 'em, but tough. 😉

Time-Warner/Roadrunner DNS

I've been reading that using Google's DNS servers can cause slow-downs with some types of traffic. Hmmmm… not cool. Anyway, as a precaution should I encounter this, I tried to find my Time-Warner (Roadrunner, NE Ohio section) DNS setttings and, well, I have no idea what they are. I spent a good five minutes looking […]

Sign Up for Dropbox

If you sign up for Dropbox - and you definitely should, if you have not already - then please use this link:

Busy getting ready for something, so here are three links to things I find awesome today: HTML 5 Book Demonstration Safari 5.0.3 Update Fixes History Zooming on Images in Column View

Block Ads

Do you actively block advertising on the Web? (Popup windows do not count.) Yes No Kinda (explain in a comment) View Results P.S. For the purposes of this poll, "block popup windows" does not count as "advertising." If you block popups, you can still choose "No" in the poll.

The lack of the side scrolling button. I used it for page up/page down universally and the two arrow keys above and below it were used for various things: back/forward in Safari, delete and go to next/previous unread in Entourage and Cyndicate, etc. The number of buttons I've got has been reduced by two, and […]

Nice Captcha

Seriously, what the heck does that say? Fortunately, subsequent ones were somewhat readable. I only had to enter two more after "hernusenurc" or whatever that one is to get it right. They can't seriously expect me to spend four minutes looking at that thing in detail, can they? P.S. Google Apps threw this at one […]

Two Kinds of Computer Users

There are two kinds of computer users out there: those who know what "/me" means and those who do not. I like that one more than "those who have lost data and those who will." And it's true, too.

For years - it seems like 20 but is probably closer to 10 - I've used a Logitech wireless mouse with my desktop computers I was using a Logitech MX-1000, but that broke down and it was replaced by a Logitech MX Revolution. Now it's breaking down in the same fashion: the left mouse button […]

iTunes Ping a While Out

So iTunes with Ping has been out for awhile now. Do you use it? iTunes Ping: Use it or Not? I don't use it I use it View Results I don't. I did at first - I added five or six people - but I have two major issues with it: No tabs. I see […]

TST Redesigns

Thoughts on any of these? sandtrap-skin-v1-with-content.jpg sandtrap-skin-v2-with-content.jpg sandtrap-skin-v4-1.jpg sandtrap-skin-v5.jpg sandtrap-skin-v6.jpg sandtrap-skin-v7.jpg

iTunes Outdated Information

Notice that "Apps" in iTunes has x updates listed. Click "Check for Updates" in the "Apps" section of iTunes. You're taken to the iTunes store, and click "Get all updates" (or whatever it's called). You sign in. You get the dialog box above and need to revert to step 2. So friggin' annoying.

Thanks to people here and elsewhere upgrading by using me as their referrer, I've gone up from 2 GB of free storage to 6.2 GB of free storage. I'm currently using about 70% of the 6.2 GB I get for free, and I don't feel particularly cramped. That said, I'd like to upgrade, if for […]

Reply-To Lies

Let me just say - I hate hate hate when the "From" name does not match the "reply-to" address in an email. For example, a friend of mine named "Bob" posts to a blog to which I've subscribed to the comments, or a forum. I get an email that says "from: Bob" and I reply […]
