Favicon – 1st attempt

January 28th, 2009 No comments

You should now see my awesome Favicon favicon next to my url.

It was created using this site. http://antifavicon.com/

It is just a first attempt, to see it would work. I am trying to come up with a better idea for the next attempt.

Qik.com On My Blackberry Curve 8320

January 27th, 2009 No comments

I just created a Qik.com account, to see how it works. I was surprised to find out it works great. It had no problems on my home network, or over the Tmobile network. Now I just need to find a reason to use it.

I will probably win some awards for my awesome cinematography.

Nerdist just posted a photo on his FaceBook page, and there was a cool squirrel wallet in it. I did a quick web search and found that it is sold by buyolympia.com.

Monkey Cats

My old condo had stairs that were perfect for cats to play on. It was like they were made out of scratching posts. The cats would climb the stairs like monkeys.

IT Crowd Season 3 Eps 5, WTF is that thing

January 24th, 2009 1 comment

If you saw the IT crowd episode about FriendFace, you probably were wondering WTF was Roy playing with on the couch.

I had no clue. It looked like some kind of giant MP3 player, with dual screen visualization.

So I spent some time searching, and it turns out to be a Tenori-ON music sequencer. I was a little bummed that is was not a giant mp3 player.

They charge $999 for it, so it really is more of a toy for people that have too much money.

Here are some videos of it in action.

Windows 7 – I don’t know how to quit you

January 22nd, 2009 2 comments

I am not making a joke about any Windows 7 shutdown issues, I just don’t want the beta to expire. August 1st is a long time away, but I am not excited about going back to Vista. Hopefully they will have another beta, or just release it.

When Windows 7 expires, I will be going back to XP not Vista.

Best Holiday gift – Sennhieser RS120 wireless headphones

January 21st, 2009 No comments

One of the best holiday gifts I got this year, has to be my wireless headphones. They were purchased from an Amazon.com half price special, and used in the family gift exchange. My plan was just to pick them, instead of another gift. The plan worked perfectly.

I am not sure how I lived without these. All I had to do was plug them into my TV audio out. The sound quality is perfect, and there is no interference. When I am done, they just go on the charging  stand.

Now I can watch late night movies, or video games without disturbing anybody.

Check out Obamiconme. You can make you own version of the Obama Hope poster.

My poster comes from my 2007 Halloween photo. I was a 1970’s cop.

Windows 7 – Day 7 – Movie Maker Beta WTF

January 20th, 2009 No comments

I found out that windows 7 does not come with all of the programs you would expect. I wanted to post a video to my Facebook account, but it needed a little editing. It just needed to be trimmed a little, should not be a problem for Movie Maker. I look in the start menu, and it is not there. After a short web search, I find that it is only available as a download from live.com.

So I install the Movie Maker beta, anticipating an improved program. I am actually shocked when I first open MM, it does not look like an editing program. It takes a bit, but I figure out how to trim/crop my video . The controls are so imprecise, that I could not get the trim points right. They were about 20 seconds from the spot I needed.  I was able to get my video posted, but this is the last time using MM.
