  • @francinegeller I only tried one test call with Skype on iPhone, but quality was OK. About the same as on the computer. in reply to francinegeller #
  • WTH? Just plugged in my iPhone to sync, iTunes told me “Can’t sync. Syncing is disabled. Enable it?” Yes. “Nope. Can’t. Override?” *sigh* #
  • @Kent_Giard What’s really weird is that after all that, it synced just fine. It was just messing with me, I guess. πŸ™‚ in reply to Kent_Giard #
  • Apparently, if you get the iPhone/iTunes “Syncing is disabled” problem, and it doesn’t go away, here’s how you fix it: http://bit.ly/2L2Wg #
  • Make Magazine (the DIY nerd’s bible) comes to Portland: http://bit.ly/2g93N Anyone know who’s behind Make:PDX? Make yourselves known! πŸ™‚ #
  • Pop Quiz, dear Twitter followers. Tell me what Nehalem means to you. Thanks! πŸ™‚ #
  • Interesting responses to “what does Nehalem mean to you?” There’s no right answer, but it’s fascinating to hear what you all think. πŸ™‚ #
  • @EricAppel That’s what it means to me, too. πŸ™‚ Though I’ve camped on the Nehalem river. And been through Nehalem, OR many times. in reply to EricAppel #
  • If you’re a software developer, I’m especially interested in what Nehalem means to you. #
  • Is it just me, or is there no way to delete a blog I’ve added to the WordPress iPhone app? Or update the login/password if they’ve changed? #
  • @jmock Touching the blue arrow does the same as touching the blog name. Takes me to the Posts/Pages/Comments page. I’m on 1.21, FTR. in reply to jmock #
  • @leese OK, WTH, now it’s working. I just tried it a second ago, and it didn’t. Oh well. Thanks all for the help! πŸ™‚ in reply to leese #
  • @cyndibrigham Tapping the blue arrow now works for me, and I can edit the blog’s settings. (WordPress for iPhone) in reply to cyndibrigham #
  • @sanssucre I did, but my problem was that my finger wasn’t hitting the little blue arrow to open the preferences sheet. Got it now. πŸ™‚ in reply to sanssucre #
  • Do you use a Mac? Do you use antivirus software? Is it really necessary? I say no, but I’m getting a ton of people asking me. What say you? #
  • Let me ask this follow up question: has anyone every had a virus/malware infection on a Mac? Ever? I haven’t, nor have I heard of any. #
  • In my personal experience, I’ve cleaned up dozens and dozens of infected Windows machines, at work, in the family, of friends. Never a Mac. #
  • To those who run antivirus software on your Mac, has it ever actually, you know, caught anything? πŸ˜‰ #
