App.net Free Service

App.net's new direction.

I still don't see the appeal of app.net. Twitter's been fine, and nobody I want to hear from is exclusively on app.net.

Tiger’s Quest for 18 Majors

He needs one this year.

And yes, I'm filling space. :)

What’s Wrong with SI?

From 2007: What's wrong with Sports Illustrated?

Apparently SI is losing money and is in danger of going away very soon.

The last time I seriously looked at an issue of SI1 was in high school.

All of them! :)

Monetizing Planes and Conveyor Belts

If I could monetize planes and conveyor belts I'd be rich!

That page is still getting traffic. Maybe that proves that there IS an idiot born every minute. :P

A Peculiar Test Drive

I really hope to be able to afford a Tesla (i.e. I hope they become less expensive) some day, but these three posts tell an interesting tale of media bias. Why a journalist would be biased against electric cars I have no idea, but… there you have it.

Brooks PureDrift Shoe Review

The takeaway:

In conclusion, Brooks has a shoe with a great deal of potential in the PureDrift. The first incarnation has some shortcomings that I was able to remedy with an insole swap, but I think only some minor tweaks would be required to take this shoe to another level in future incarnations. I’d redesign the integrated footbed to remove seams along the margins, soften the sole just a tad, or include a slightly beefier insole (like the current PureCadence 2 insole). With the tweak I made, I foresee this shoe remaining on my active rack for quite awhile!

The rest of the review is here.

Getting Rid of Duplicates in Mac OS X’s Open With…

This article talks about how to get rid of duplicate entries in the "Open With…" contextual menu.

I've had this command in my nightly (user) cron file for many months now:

# Flush Launch Services Cache
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/
LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

Lake Peigneur Sinkhole Disaster

Wow. I hadn't ever heard of this.

Safari Still Craps Out Too Frequently

Seriously, it's 2013. I have 32 GB of RAM. And Safari still craps out all the time and has to reload every page I've loaded with as few as 20 tabs open.

Rarely can you even close tabs to rectify the situation. It seems like once it gets into that state it won't let you get out of it very easily.

Clearing the cache regularly doesn't seem to help.

It's 2013 and we have Mac OS X 10.8 and Safari 6.x. C'mon, people, figure this crap out.

iMovie’s Publish to YouTube Window Fullscreen?

Why would iMovie's modal "Publishing to YouTube" window ever need to go fullscreen?

Mountain Lion QuickTime Player Audio Skips after Fast Forwarding?

Talk about a bug that shouldn't exist, right?

Fortunately, there's an easy fix: type purge into your Terminal window.

That's it.

Where is My Pebble?

I was in the first 20% of people to support the Pebble Kickstarter campaign. I chose a black and a white Pebble (one is a gift for a friend), and my address has been checked promptly as well.

I've voted, I've chosen colors quickly, etc.

So where in the heck are my Pebbles? Don't give me a goofy site. Tell me when mine ships1.

  1. Perhaps so I can sell it as it doesn't seem to have advanced much in terms of software since it was conceived…

Not sure what took so long, but I'm happy. Privacy is respected as well.
