My office is a total mess. It doesn’t help the brain.
We passed a major milestone today at VitalSource. Great people doing some pretty incredible work for a whole lot of users.
iTunes should allow you to recompress your music down to specific bit rate for your all your devices and not just the shuffle.
Inbox 32 or 54 (threaded vs. not threaded) will have to do.
Followup on our Ruby / OS X bug. Something is changing the value of bootstrap_port in our mongrel process to FFFFFFFF. This is bad.
"Will you please come by and borrow my copy of Civ Revolution?" —Me, asking a buddy for a favor to help with my addiction. :-)
Joy. cpan install Image::Imlib2 fails on Mac OS X.
Turns out my script doesn’t test the problem we are having in production. Dtrace probes are coming next for you getaddrinfo. Thanks, DTS!
We found a bug in the Ruby HTTP library (or below). Rubyists run this script and let me know what you find. http://gist.github.com/12602
And with that, he is asleep. Apparently, the karmic world just needed confession.
Feeling miserable as I listen to the boy cry himself to sleep. Being put to bed 4 times is enough.
We have found a bug in the intersection of Ruby, Mac OS X & networking. Inconsistent behavior across machines. Hoping for magic from DTS.
Is there a good solution for sharing photos across the network to iPhoto clients without running iPhoto on the machine sharing the photos?

New twitter design highlights lots of things I don’t care about and makes things less dense. 1 step forward, 1 step over to the side.
Thinking about buying a iTunes Season Pass for House in HD. Now, why do I have DirecTV?
OMG. On quality: iTunes SD download > Bittorrent > DirecTV > Cable. I can’t wait for the HD to download. Zowie.
Hello 5D Mark II. Its a good time to (possibly) be in the market for a full frame digital camera.
If my Drobo survives my recent idiocy, it will be a miracle. Or maybe just it just doing its job.
Results of weekend scripting debugging/automation: 25.8 GB of photos backed up from Flickr. I love Flickr & launchd. Python - not so much.
That Palin/Clinton skit from SNL is hilarious.
I don’t care who wins tonight, I just like Felix Jones.
Turns out, there is prize money for winning a blue ribbon for cookies at the White County Fair. I have a check here for $2.50.
Script debugged. I stand by earlier statements. Next step: rewrite this thing in MacRuby and get some real Unicode strings.
Trying to debug some Unicode issue in a Python script. For the record, Python’s string class sucks.
Up a little early. Boy is back asleep, but I am not.
I now have a script (with launchd task) to automatically backup my Flickr library. Fun work for a late lunch.
What a bunch of two-faced tools. (Warning: Politics ahead…) http://xrl.us/op95y
Why do I bother to follow people who post the same thing to Facebook and Twitter? The redundancy is just noise.
Oklahoma City, OTOH, still is very fresh in my mind, but, then again, I felt the explosion in my office 3 miles away.
I feel horrible for folks who lost a loved one on 9/11, but otherwise it gets been invoked so often, that it is devoid of emotion for me.
I fired up XP this morning to surf using Chrome.
I feel like Greg House, MD today.
Finding bugs in the intersection of Ruby, net/http and OS X.
Burning Blu-Ray movies from our Sony camcorder using XP under VMware Fusion on the new iMac. Seamless.
The Google Chrome UI is brilliant.
iMovie ‘08 is like Bode Miller. Spectacularly good and bad.
Come on MobileMe, sync my keychain. I don’t get it - they haven’t fixed this problem yet?

iMac, thy name is Smooth.
Hello new 24” iMac. Goodbye Power Mac G5.
