    “Meet Your Karma”

    by  • 8/28/2013 • geek, travel • 0 Comments

    This is my newest toy for travel data access while in the U.S. Karma provides a nice simple package. Clean and straight forward. The first paper is about blah blah blah regulatory information and a general disclaimer about wireless not being 100% guaranteed in all places at all times. Just legalese. Then there’s a simple […]

    Take action does not involve change.org

    by  • 8/26/2013 • geek, news • 0 Comments

    I saw this flyer in the Starbucks closest to my apartment in downtown Toronto (ie, NOT the UK). There are two lists here, and the flyer-maker can’t decide if the Oxford comma is good or not… I’m not going to hold that against them. This time. The naivite to assume that the UK’s “suggestions” to […]

    I just found out that LJ crossposting has been down for months. If you’re reading this on Livejournal and you’re wondering what films I’ve seen in the past 4 months, head over to http://foo.ca/wp/

    WordPress 2.8 upgrade

    by  • 6/18/2009 • geek • 0 Comments

    Well, I’ve spent all of fifteen minutes upgrading from 2.7x to 2.8 on the server, including time to upgrade a handful of plugins that I’ve been putting off. I like the new behind-the-scenes layout, though it’s a significant change that will take a bit of time to get used to. The plugin auto-upgrade feature is […]

    Manual Recap

    by  • 5/17/2009 • geek • 0 Comments

    There are things that I say that I want to remember later, and Twitter is good for that. The trouble is that for me to get those couple gems, there’s mountains of slag left over. So, I don’t cross post my twitter posts to the bankrupt artist automatically – too many and too much out […]

    Hard drive: flame on

    by  • 2/26/2009 • geek • 0 Comments

    Last night I was moving files around from drive to drive, and had shut a system down to swap one of the drives I new was dying out. It’s been overdue for a change, and I finally got around to moving all the data off of it. I’ve replaced Dying Drive with MP3 Drive from […]

    Shozu has really improved

    by  • 1/1/2009 • geek • 5 Comments

    Wow… I decided to try installing Shozu again on my smartphone, as I’ve taken a couple photos of odd things with its camera, and wanted to transfer them off. I remembered that Shozu would automatically transfer photos to flickr, and now that I have unlimited data traffic, why not do that live? Wow, have they […]

    Watching this may lower IQ

    by  • 9/16/2008 • geek • 0 Comments

    I don’t really want to give this guy any more attention than deserves. He’s already run past his 15 minutes of fame from his argument with Chris Angel on Phenomenon. This time, he’s going on about how James Randi is a counterfeiter, and how he has video proof! Randi is doing a simple demo of […]

    Look Who’s Commiting Vote Fraud Now!

    by  • 9/12/2008 • geek • 0 Comments

    Diebold apparently fixed the old, hackable systems that Princeton’s IT Security types exposed last election, and released newer, even more hackable systems this time around. Is the American election is going to be about who hacks the most systems in the most districts for their candidate? However the voting goes, the results could be contested, […]
