Josh’s Lifelog for 2008-09-15

  • There’s something in the TXT and PDF versions of Cory Doctorow’s “Content” that’s causing my Kindle to barf and stop opening books. Mobi=OK. #
  • The irony was rich when I was reading his first essay, on the Evils of DRM, and my Kindle started spewing “content errors”. πŸ™‚ #
  • That Content/Kindle bug was scary. Once triggered, opening ANY book causes “unknown error”. Full reboot fixes until I read “Content” again. #
  • More evidence they’re moving us back to the old cubes one step at a time: a bunch of new intercube partitions/walls we didn’t ask for. πŸ™ #
  • You know what I hate? Free floating anxiety. #
  • @michaelsigler I have a bunch of pics of the new Intel JF1 offices (with old for comparo) in this set on Flickr: http://tinyurl.com/25n6cn #
  • On the bright side, I’m told that all these new walls that were installed over the weekend were a mistake, and will be removed. #
  • @ahockley While I agree with you, it’s not the most random, weird thing I’ve ever seen done here. πŸ˜‰ #
  • @jsmorris Heh, no. The live music was for the open house only. As were the cookies. πŸ™‚ #
  • Yammer just ensured I will never use it: they stole the Bloglines Plumber as their “fail whale” image: http://tinyurl.com/5zn6ch Boo theft! #
  • Hey, cool! Ignite Corvallis is going to happen the afternoon of Ignite Portland 4 (Nov. 13): http://tinyurl.com/57rsxe The more the merrier! #
  • Hey, look! Google released Gears for Safari! Yay for offline access to Docs, RTM, and more! #
  • Oops, here’s that Gears for Safari link: http://tinyurl.com/6buz6a #
  • @TiEsQue Yeah, but I wonder how many people would go to both Ignite Portland AND Ignite Corvallis? Upon more though, same date is yucky. πŸ™ #
  • All the cool kids are installing Mac OS X 10.5.5. Guess I should go along. Wonder if it will fix my proxy iTunes crash? #
  • Oh, joy of joys! Mac OS X 10.5.5 fixed my autoproxy woes! iTunes doesn’t crash under autoproxy anymore! MarsEdit still acting weird, though. #
  • Nuking and reinstalling MarsEdit to see if I can make it behave itself. I’m so happy that 10.5.5 fixed that issue! Yay! πŸ™‚ #
  • Hmm. My volume seems a little lower on my MacBook Pro after 10.5.5. Anyone else? #
  • Nuke and reinstall of MarsEdit worked! Now all of my little Intel proxy/Leopard network nagging crashes and issues are GONE. Woo hoo! πŸ™‚ #
  • Oh, you witty fish-themed Google Talk spammers. Dishevelledcoho, I don’t want whatever it is you’re selling! #
  • @scottjedwards Google Reader. Awesome sharing and mgmt capability. iPhone version is PERFECT. Bloglines is good, but GReader is better. πŸ™‚ #
  • @samgrover interesting idea: what if Apple rejected Podcaster because they’re adding the same OTA podcast d/l ability to iPhones? #
  • Took a bunch of screenshots of Ubuntu Eee on the 901 for my writeup, now putting Windows XP back on it. What other OSes should I try? #
  • @eriksr I’ve toyed with the idea of a Hackintosh 90, but I’m not sure it’s worth it. And there’s no way I could write about it for Intel πŸ˜‰ #
