Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-09-11

  • Nice new iPhone 3.1 feature: you can now hold/copy address/phone fields in Maps and Contacts. Perfect for adding new venues in Foursquare! #
  • Does anyone know a way to make Mail.app on the Mac "Expand all Threads" by default? I hate that new threads default to collapsed. #
  • Found out @posterous duplicate post issue is my fault – WordPress is *slow* on my blog, and Posterous retries when it times out. Ergo dupes. #
  • @vincentchu Thanks for your help. I'm on the latest WordPress, but been meaning to switch hosts for ages. It's just a ton of work and time. in reply to vincentchu #
  • Oops. I messed up my blog. Upgraded WP, K2 stopped working. Upgraded K2, hosed my theme customizations. Time to pave and rebuild, i think! #
  • Pretty cool if you're into The Facebook: they have a Mac desktop notifier app now. Pretty slick. http://bit.ly/1vajRS #
  • Installing 10.6.1, 'cause razor's edge is just how I roll. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Oh, come ON, @BNONews. Is this *REALLY* worthy of a Breaking News Alert? πŸ˜‰ http://twitpic.com/h8fq4 #
  • @dbug13 No way! 10.6.1 was about 9.8MB for me, and I've heard others report size around 75MB (see: http://bit.ly/genQc ) in reply to dbug13 #
  • I just unlocked the "Explorer" badge on @foursquare! http://bit.ly/JaHXF #
  • Staying late at work to try and make a dent in the stuff I have to get done before IDF. Thankful for Pandora, keeping the energy flowing. #
  • Weird request – I forgot the exact layout of my blog sidebars after I trashed my theme today. Anyone got a screenshot before today? #
  • @SuperSpiker Good thing I don't run at recess or go to gym class anymore. πŸ˜‰ in reply to SuperSpiker #
  • @xolotl I tried the Wayback Machine, but the latest there is Feb 2008 – not new enough. And my sidebars don't appear at all there… in reply to xolotl #
  • @AboutUs has an image that's recent enough, but too tiny to read. @StevenWalling, how can I get a big version of this? http://bit.ly/F6PWj #
  • DomainTools.com has one that might work. But they want to charge me $15/month for access to more/bigger versions. Feh. #
  • @Durf Perfect! I tried the Google Cache, but it was too new (updated today, after I trashed it). But Google.jp has an older one. Thanks! πŸ™‚ in reply to Durf #
  • Thanks, all, for the help. I've mostly restored my blog sidebars to the way they were. There's some under the covers hacks I'll need to fix. #
  • My brain is fried, and I ought not to be mucking around with the innards of my blog when I'm at work this late. πŸ™‚ #
  • Hmm. iPhone Bluetooth Voice Control in 3.1 DOES work with my Plantronics 510 headset, but not my MOTOROKR S9. Strange. #
  • MobileRSS, an iPhone Google Reader client, is free until tomorrow (then $2.99). It's fast, looks nice. I still prefer the mobile web version #
  • @mike_strock this MobileRSS? $499 is to much for any iPhone app. Don't buy it! πŸ˜‰ http://twitpic.com/ha2ml in reply to mike_strock #
