Netflix Keeps Profiles

The people have spoken, and today I received an email stating that Profiles would stay in Netflix! Hip hip hooray! Dear Erik, You spoke, and we listened. We are keeping Profiles. Thank you for all the calls and emails telling us how important Profiles are. We are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused. […]

Off to California

I'm off to California for a very, very short trip today. I've been watching the weather in Carlsbad, CA for a few weeks now, and it's true what they say about San Diego weather: 75 and sunny. Every. Day.

iTunes = Podcasts

For well over a year now, I've not listened to much of my iTunes music. Instead, I have listened to an endless supply of podcasts, reserving my listening for the car. I think I'm going to work to cut back on the longer, less dense podcasts (like the WordPress podcast), so I can listen to […]

Enemies? Good

I'm not sure where I first saw this quote, but I like it: "You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life." - Winston Churchill

Rivet, Cynical Peak's software for sharing movies, music, and photos from your Mac to your Xbox 360, will see a 1.1 release tomorrow that fixes quite a few things and improves several others. Added better support for video podcasts and TV Shows in iTunes. They will now be sorted into subfolders based on the show […]

Forgetting the Swing

A few years ago I assistant coached the boys golf team at my high school alma mater. Only one of the kids on the team was worth the time, money, and effort, and I've maintained a relationship with the kid. We golf together a few times a month and, more interestingly, I continue to help […]

Stupid, I think, and for reasons Daniel has already enumerated.

The Rules of Golf

I continue to be shocked and amazed at the number of golfers - and some who are fairly good players - that do not know even the most basic rules of golf. A lost ball is a stroke-and-distance penalty! Okay, calming motion… 😉

No, Apple has not suddenly added the "over the wire" synching, but I believe we may once again be exploring the possibility of doing Scorecard for the iPhone. If we do it, it'll likely be over WiFi, and I'm still not certain how many users that will cut out, but I suppose they can always […]

Starting on Monday, I'm going to be running the EDGA Junior Match Play tournament. I'll be around to help decide rulings, to make sure the kids know who plays who (and when), and so on. One of the kids I've been working with has seen a lot of his swing changes come together recently, and […]

What's up with customers never getting the same darn IP address. Sure makes it tough to ban the occasional idiot in a forum without banning half of the rest of the UK. Here in the U.S., most people with DSL and cable seem to get the same IP address. Unless they're offline for a […]

Scorecard is getting updated to version 1.4 in the next few weeks. New stats include some putting stats, a few small bug fixes, and some more putting stats. We're also adding penalties and "total distance of putts made" to the "Best vs. Worst" table. We're also re-considering our stance on iPhone development: we may just […]

Several people on the Cynical Peak forums have asked for Rivet to run as a system-level service so that they can access their media when they're logged out. There are a few problems with that request, not the least of which are: Whose iTunes and iPhoto libraries do you parse when nobody's logged in? How […]

Another Forum Pet Peeve

This one's a bit more general than the one from a few days ago, as I hear people in real life saying it, too: "I could care less." If you could care less, that means you care! Try "I couldn't care less" next time, okay?

Netflix Dropping Profiles

I'm kinda ticked, and part of me doubts it's only 1% of the customers. Other responses are here.
