Snow? Again?

I'm trying very hard not to look at the snow we have lying around on the ground right now. Just a week ago I was golfing. Now, snow. In North East, they have three or four inches. I was scheduled to play Cranberry Highlands this Friday, but I don't think that's going to happen. Cranberry […]

Iris Beta Testing

Iris beta testing will officially commence on Monday, April 9. Those who have signed up should look for something on the mailing list at that time.

Ron and I went to Lake Pleasant last Sunday afternoon. We weren't terribly inspired, and despite having some semi-interesting subjects, the flat lighting made even the nifty subjects rather boring. I've added one of the shots - a version of the "berry shot" - along with another shot of a flower in my front yard […]

I've written up a little summary and installation guide for the desktops resizer script. If you have any questions about this first draft, please post them in this post's comments. I'd like to keep the comments on that page clear of the early bug reports and/or editing suggestions.

a) because I almost never use Spotlight b) this

Launchbar vs. QuickSilver

I use LaunchBar. It does all I need - quickly launch things or allow me to drag and drop. I can even add items to the party shuffle (though I wish I could disable certain functions, like "play" and a lot of the other iTunes shortcut). {democracy:10}

/bin/rm /bin/rm

Yeah, uh, this is not a very wise cron task: /bin/rm /bin/rm /files/I/actually/wanted/to/delete Stupid copy/paste. Needless to say, I now have a /bin/rm_backup file as well. 🙂

Recording a Phone Call

I have an interview scheduled with someone later this week, and I will have to record a phone call. Prior to today, I thought I might just use Skype. At 2.1 cents/minute, it's not exactly expensive. Still, I have some questions and concerns. Can a third person (on the Skype application) be conferenced in to […]

Desktops Now Available

The "Desktops" section is now available. Aaron Linville and I still have some tweaking to do to the resizer/watermarker script, and we'd still like to iron out some image quality issues, but it "works" in that images are served at the size you request and properly watermarked. If you like what you see, consider donating […]

Hopefully this will be handled easily. I have a few EMI tracks, but I'd like to be offered the chance to seamlessly "upgrade" to the higher-quality, DRM-free versions. Consumers who have already purchased standard tracks or albums with DRM will be able to upgrade their digital music for $0.30 per track. All EMI music videos […]

My friend Josh has released Lightbox XMP, which he describes as "an export plugin for Aperture tool that allows you to export XMP information, beyond what Aperture provides automatically, with your images." LXMP can export referenced master sidecars, export sidecars, export images and sidecars, and embed the XMP or export both sidecars and images with […]

Shooting Golf Clubs

You know, shooting irons isn't so bad. But I'm having a heckuva time getting good shots of drivers, fairway woods, and hybrids. They tend to feature large expanses of curved shiny metal. What isn't highly reflective metal is often highly reflective black paint instead. I'm trying a lot of different things, but I'm fairly certain […]
