  • You know it's early when you're the first person to arrive for the early bird shuttle flight to Arizona. :-) #
  • Arrived in Arizona for a couple days of team meetings. #
  • Arrived in Arizona for a couple days of team meetings. It's hot here. :-) #
  • OK, so it's not THAT hot here (Phoenix). And I have been here in August (faint). But a forecast 87 is hotter than home. And I sweat a LOT. #
  • Oof. My ears wouldn't pop on the descent, now I can't hear an have a headache. #wahmbulance #
  • ISN team dinner. This place is something else. Live Longhorn steer as you come in. :-) (@ Rustler's Rooste) http://4sq.com/4z9WWo #
  • Eating rattlesnake. Tastes like aligator. And chicken. :-) http://twitpic.com/1c2q94 #

10 Shot HDR Panorama Made On My iPhone in Tempe Arizona

Shot this on the balcony at Rustler’s Rooste in Tempe, AZ at a team dinner. I took a five shot panorama with the sky exposed correctly, then another with the ground exposed correctly.

Then I merged the light and dark images in the TrueHDR app, and stitched the result together in the Autostitch app (two of my very favorite photo apps).

I’m pretty pleased with the result, though I haven’t seen it on a bigger screen yet (posting this on my iPhone via Posterous, too),

Can’t wait to do stuff like this on the iPad’s bigger screen! :-)

  • Mac OS X 10.6.3 is out. Fixes a weird iCal/Exchange recurring item bug that's been hounding me. Pludging now… #
  • Well. 10.6.3 installed, rebooted, kernel panic/grey screen. Every time. *sigh* ? #
  • I've been wanting to rebuild this machine, just not today. Time Machine restore here I come! #
  • My latest Time Machine backup is from March 19, so I only lost about a week worth of stuff. Not bad, but not great, either. :-( #
  • Discovered a cool new feature in Reeder 2.0 for iPhone: when reading an item, pull it up to "roll" to the next item. Neat! #
  • @macfixer I installed whatever came down through Software Update… in reply to macfixer #
  • Restore complete, back up and running. Hope there are no lasting effects… #
  • @macfixer Will do. Curious why the combo updater would be any different? in reply to macfixer #
  • @macfixer Thanks. But now I'm afraid to even try the 10.6.3 combo update… :-) in reply to macfixer #

  • Bleh. Still fighting off this cold or whatever. :-( ??? #
  • @millard3 never heard of Benchmade. Do they make a multitool like the Gerber Crucial? Quick Amazon search shows only knives… in reply to millard3 #
  • Reeder 2.0 for iPhone is out. Big update: faster syncing, image caching, followers' items, Instapaper mobilizer and more. Go get it. #
  • Love this place. Been craving their chips and salsa and Arroz con Camarónes. :-) (@ La Fogata) http://4sq.com/c7s9T3 #

  • Everyblock (hyperlocal news) is finally available in Portland! http://portland.everyblock.com/ Now to re-download their iPhone app. #
  • @verso A ha! More We Rule victims. I need to hire someone from a neighboring kingdom, and @ravenme's too popular. Adding you now. :-) in reply to verso #
  • The excitement that Everyblock now covers Portland for hyperlocal news is tempered by the fact it doesn't cover the suburbs where I live. #
  • Also cool: I see @SiliconFlorist and @OurPDX listed as sources for Everyblock's new Portland coverage: http://bit.ly/cBaKRL #
  • @verso I consider myself and adopted resident of Portland. I'm a brother from another mother. :-) in reply to verso #
