iOS 5.0.1 Update

The update took about three minutes on my phone. I still downloaded the full 700 MB update within iTunes. I'm looking forward to some better battery life.

Analyzr Pro 1.3 Sneak Peek

Analyzr Pro is coming along well, and this video shows a nice update that's right around the corner:

Arguing with a Madman

Love it! :-)

If you argue with a madman, it is extremely probable that you will get the worst of it; for in many ways his mind moves all the quicker for not being delayed by the things that go with good judgment. He is not hampered by a sense of humour or by charity, or by the dumb certainties of experience. He is the more logical for losing certain sane affections. Indeed, the common phrase for insanity is in this respect a misleading one. The madman is not the man who has lost his reason. The madman is the man who has lost everything except his reason.

- GK Chesterton

Kindergarten Class Photo


Yeah, I'm the only dumbass with his head turned way over that way. I remember that shirt, too. It was a tight "fur" style shirt. It may be the reason that I still dislike turtlenecks to this day

Beginning Couch to 5K

Today I ran my first "Couch to 5K" segment. Between five minutes of warm-up and cool-down, you alternate running for 60 seconds and walking for 90 seconds for 20 minutes.

I set out without a route in mind, but had an idea where to go. It turns out my guess was pretty good - I completed a 2.3 mile loop (give or take) in about 22 minutes, which included a minute of the warm-up and cool-down each.

I plan to run on M-W-F for the time being, though I have the flexibility to move dates around as necessary to accommodate weather, etc.

Wednesday Update: Today's run didn't go so well. I paced myself too fast, trying to shoot for 20 minutes, and I accidentally paused one of the segments which resulted in running far too long, which had ill effects on the remaining couple of segments.

P.S. My shoes are a pair of black Asics Gel Kayano-17s, size 11. My arches are slightly higher than average, my feet slightly wider than average, and while a 10.5 is probably a better "fit" a little room isn't a bad thing as I have no real "slippage." My feet roll inwards when I walk - always have - and I think I have decent form. The shoe guy said you should land on the outside of your heel and roll towards the inside of the ball of your foot.

So True

This comic is so true:


I try to adopt the position (typically with writing an AppleScript or shell script to automate something) that I need to do that thing frequently enough that I'll be "in the black" time savings wise inside of about the next three weeks or so, give or take.

Extra points are awarded if the time I'd spend would be really aggravating. :-)

Donating to My College

My college (Ohio Northern University) is not a state college. And I've still got student loans that I'm paying off to the tune of a few hundred bucks a month.

Nor do I have a few spare million dollars lying around.

Why on earth would I donate money to them?

College is a business. I paid what I considered a fair price, they provided what they were contracted to provide. Are they banking on the nostalgia they hope I have for where I spent my time for a few years? If that's the case I'd be more inclined to donate to the high school I went to. Unlike my college, they could probably use the money.

Stupid Adobe

That would be fine, but there's absolutely no way I can see in the "Settings…" to turn the damn thing off.

State of the Mac Pro

My Mac Pro is getting older. It's a 2 x 3 GHz Dual-Core Xeon with 13 GB of RAM. I've got four 1 TB SATA disks inside. It's hooked up to an older 23" Cinema Display and is on its second video card. The top SuperDrive (I have two) sticks sometimes when you eject the tray.

Apple's Mac Pro line has languished for quite some time without an update. 461 days, apparently.

This article at MacNN and this one at TUAW suggest that the Mac Pro line may vanish soon.

Mona Simpson’s Eulogy of Her Brother, Steve Jobs

Worth the time it takes to read, her eulogy summarizes the positives.

One could only hope that their final words are as good as "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

Mine will probably be something like "just plug it in already." :-P
