Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-08-20

  • Sounds like some cool stuff being announced at IDF this morning. Intel Parallel Tools (addon for Visual Studio), and a whole lot more. #
  • Check out this hilarous Samsung Omnia i900 unboxing video (hat tip to @ravenme): http://tinyurl.com/5e67qs πŸ™‚ #
  • Went looking for a Gnomedex room on FriendFeed, suprised that none existed. So I created one: http://friendfeed.com/rooms/gnomedex #
  • Holy cow. 28,400+ people attended SIGGRAPH 2008 last week in L.A. http://tinyurl.com/58adyh I knew it was thousands, but I had no idea… #
  • @davechen Yeah, I can see them handling even bigger crowds. It didn’t seem to be anywhere near capacity. Still, biggest con I’ve been to. πŸ™‚ #
  • @kegill Absolutely. πŸ™‚ Looking forward to seeing lots of people at Gnomedex. Just look for the bright orange Crocs (shoes). πŸ™‚ #
  • So, that Gnomedex room I created on FriendFeed? Turns out there WAS already one: http://tinyurl.com/63ccc9 Deciding what to do w/the other. #
  • @verso @dieselboi I’ve heard great things about FlickUp. Does everything an uploader should, IMO. Plus, I kinda know the guy who wrote it πŸ™‚ #
  • @verso Yes, FlickUp preserves geotag metadata when sending to Flickr. Which is my #1 requirement, too. I haven’t tried it yet, though. YMMV. #
  • @jltitus Flickup author (@kodachrome22) sez new 1.0.1 version fixes a LOT of issues. Still waiting for Apple to approve. I will buy it then. #
  • @kodachrome22 Really? Sorry. (re 1.0.1 being out). Is everything cool with the new version? Time to buy? πŸ˜‰ #
  • @kodachrome22 I’m confused. Does Flickup preserve geodata when sending to Flickr, so photos are geotagged? Notes say all EXIF gets stripped. #
  • Woo hoo! I just tested, and Flickup DOES preserve geodata on pics sent to Flickr. They show up on the map. Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • Also, Flickup sends images full size (1600×1200) when the picture is taken with Flickup. Images sent from the Photo Album go as 640×480. #
  • Some playing and testing with Flickup turned into a full blown review I just posted: http://tinyurl.com/5l3zfo Verdict: Best one so far. πŸ™‚ #
  • @kegill I don’t know @hrheingold, but orange Crocs have been my “signature” for a few years. That Mario Batali guy is biting MY style. πŸ™‚ #
