Archive for January, 2005

On January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator. Let's start things off with not one feature, but a collection of features: Added "Google This" to web view Changed mail article's subject to Fwd: article title Set […]

George W. Bush, iPodder

Yep. Flip through the pictures and you'll see 'em. It's good to know the Commander in Chief has at least got some good taste.

QotD: Keynote Video Stream

Question: Apple is not having a live streaming version of the MWSF Keynote presentation because it costs too much. Today's question: how much would you pay to watch the stream if a pay option were available? My Answer: $9.99. Sell it via the iTMS, play the video through iTunes. The infrastructure is probably already (or […]

Those Tiger Torrent Kids

I just finished reading the interview with one of the folks being sued for distributing Tiger. Desicanuk … I'm very sorry to hear what has happened to you, and hope that you can come out of this situation a little smarter and wiser. Let's get real here: they are the ones that "did" the thing, […]

QotD: Playoffs

Question: What are your predictions for the NFL playoffs? Be as vague or as precise as you wish, though "the team with the higher score will win each game" is not as funny as you might think. My Answer: I'll remain mute on this one for fear of jinxing anything. I'm interested in what y'all […]

Random Bits From My World

The other Mac Erik (that I know of) points to Apple's "itpro" page. The "wolf" in the red shed links back to me (must have missed the TrackBack?) and points out something called "Longhand." I'll have to look into that. These are some of the worst Apple product fakes I've ever seen, despite what some […]

QotD: Writing

Question: On average, how many words do write (pen/pencil and paper) in a given day? My Answer: I probably average about ten per day. A phone number, an envelope. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Devices

Question: If you could get rid of one "device" in your life, what would it be and why? My Answer: I'd ditch my… alarm clock. My computer's in another room, so setting alarms on it is impractical. The whole process of setting an alarm - all twelve seconds of it - is silly. I have […]

QotD: Nudes

Question: How many of the Top 20 Nude Scenes of 2004 did you see? My Answer: I saw one: The Girl Next Door. I wanted to see Open Water and Closer. I've never even heard of most of the rest of the movies. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself […]

It seems that Rookie of the Year Ben Roethlisberger is dating Hottie of the LPGA Tour, Natalie Gulbis. Gulbis, like Anna Kournikova, is hot, blonde, young, and winless. Me? I'm much more of a Laura Diaz kinda guy.

In addition to the Text Factory issue (see the previous entry), I've got a big problem with the number of ways in which MovableType and ecto are both not helpful in transitioning an existing, static site into blog entries. Today I'm going to move three pages (one for each of three months) into MovableType. The […]

BBEdit Text Factories

I've finally gotten the chance to use a Text Factory in BBEdit, and I must say I'm rather disappointed. Unless I've missed something, I cannot simply do what I'd like to do: process text (or even the selected text) with a Text Factory. I'm moving an old site to a new site, and in the […]

Showtime and iTMS

I wonder if, as a DirecTV subscriber, I'm eligible for this promotion with the iTMS: Showtime Networks announced today that it has selected Apple gift cards and iTunes Music Store gift certificates for the its first quarter 2005 acquisition campaign. Qualified consumers who sign up to receive Showtime programing and subscribe for at least three […]

QotD: PulpFiction 1.2

Question: What would you like to see in PulpFiction 1.2? My Answer: The features are already set and nearly all written and tested, so any suggestions we haven't already hit upon will be considered for PulpFiction 1.3. When we get closer to our anticipated release date, I'll let you know what we've done so far […]


Must note URL for later: I tried it just now with a golf shirt I bought, and it worked wonderfully in PulpFiction.
