QotD: Purchased iTunes Count

Question: How many files are listed in your "Purchased" playlist in iTunes? My Answer: 1329 items. I've probably purchased about 1000 of those (the rest were free). 1000 items tied to FairPlay is a little freaky to me, but at the same time, I don't foresee a future (not in the next five years anyway) […]

Question: Are you in favor of making the metric system the "default" measurement system in the U.S.? My Answer: Hell yeah. Nothing about the English system is "good" except for the familiarity of it. Plus, it'll be hella neat to drive "100" legally and my TV will suddenly seem larger1 - 152.4cm! Jokes aside, the […]

QotD: What did you Learn in 2006?

Question: What is the single most important thing you learned in 2006? My Answer: That my definition of "happy" was substantially shallower than I thought. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: SpamAssassin Rating

Question: At what level do you have SpamAssassin set? My Answer: The new server at MediaTemple offers SpamAssassin. On the advice of a friend, I set my limit to 5 and only modify the subject currently. It worked reasonably well after a few days of testing, so I changed my parents' email accounts to delete […]

QotD: CLI Text Editors

Question: What CLI text editor do you use (and why)? My Answer: For years, I've used pico as my console text editor on various servers. I tried vi and vim, I tried emacs. I even tried joe for awhile. But I keep coming back to pico. Despite the fact that I believe pico stands for […]

QotD: Longest Car Trip

Question: What's the longest car trip you've ever taken? How about straight through (without stopping to sleep)? My Answer: 17 hours when I drove from Florida to PA (and vice versa) and today - 11 hours from Erie to Myrtle Beach. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the […]

QotD: BBColors

Question: What's your BBColors scheme? My Answer: Mine's in the extended entry. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: Extended Warranties

Question: Do you buy extended warranties? My Answer: This question comes from Gizmodo. I answered "Rarely" because my wife and I bought the expensive extended warranty on our rear-projection LCD TV (60"). It has two bulbs that dim over time and will be replaced under the warranty. Shortly before the warranty expires, I'll call Circuit […]

QotD: Digg Account

Question: Do you have a Digg account? What features do you use? My Answer: Only recently, yes. Thus far, I haven't used Digg except to "digg" one of my own articles to see how it works. Is there an RSS feed for each of the categories? Is that how most people use the site? You […]

QotD: Wii to Fail?

Question: Will the Wii fail with dedicated gamers? My Answer: Some at slashdot seem to think so. I don't. I think, as one of the early posters said, that gamers want a break from the same-old. Combined with the new appeal the Wii will have with non-gamers (read: my wife and others like her), and […]

Question: Do you have any interest in the Ryder Cup? My Answer: Naturally I do! You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: iTunes 7 Thoughts

Question: What are your thoughts on iTunes 7? My Answer: I like the new look, in general, though I wish I could condense some of the source list views with a disclosure triangle. Cover Flow view seems nice. The look takes some getting used to, but I suspect it's very Leopard-like. The "tabs" are a […]

QotD: Intel Inside Your Macs

Question: Expressed as a percentage, how many of the Macs in your home have Intel chips inside? My Answer: 0%. But that could change soon. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

QotD: iTunes Video Playback

Question: Why does iTunes' video playback still suck? My Answer: Heck if I know. I switch apps and the playback halts for a few seconds. The framerate is sometimes terrible. QuickTime Player can do the same thing without any problem, so why can't iTunes? I don't know. You are encouraged to answer the Question of […]
