Copy links from desktop to iphone

April 17th, 2011

I was considering the problem of copying links from my desktop or laptop to my iPhone and came up with a solution. Enter the URL into a QR Code Generator then use RedLaser or ATTScanner to open them on the phone. This works great with links from the Free iTunes Downloads blog and others.

Pictures work again

My WordPress/Gallery integration seems to have broken when Dreamhost simplified my home directory some time ago. After a few path fixes and one post fix, my pictures all showed up again. Enjoy!

My AppleTV setup

December 23rd, 2010

I’ve been changing my AV system from a Tivo Series 2 connected to cable to an AppleTV 1.0 and Roku XR.

I’m still using the Tivo to download my favorite shows, but I’ve added Toast Titanium with its Tivo Transfer and auto-transcode/transfer to iTunes for the AppleTV. iTunes is configured to copy the TV shows to the AppleTV’s hard drive.

The only thing I missed about my Tivo was the 30 second commercial skip. But I was experimenting with the remote and found that if I hold the forward button instead of press and release, it would skip forward 30 seconds. If I hold the rewind button, it skips back 8 or 10 seconds. It’s PERFECT.

If you have any questions or suggestions to make this hardware setup even more convenient, write a comment and let me know.

Burning Man was a blast!

I finished my dusty pilgrimage and came back with a newfound hope for humanity and our ability to cooperate for a greater good. Joleen and I took hundreds of pictures. The best are here.

Random update

September 14th, 2010

I just installed Adobe CS5 and decided to give Contribute a shot. Seems to be a nice way to edit blog posts, with WYSIWYG editing, a non-web interface, and support for multiple blogs. Maybe it will encourage me to post more often… or not.
