Parallels Workstation

Today I decided to give Parallels Workstation for Windows a try, they have a 15 day trial on their site, so I gave it a go. I’ve heard so many good things about it on Mac OS X for Intel (I don’t have an Intel Mac, so never used it), I figured it was worth […]

Introducing SafePasswd.com

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of tinkering. Way back when, I wrote a script to help me generate cool random passwords. I thought people wouldn’t mind one that didn’t suck… so recently I got to work on that. The site is still in beta, and quite a few things aren’t quite done yet, […]

Mozilla Goes Mainstream

Business Week is running a an article “Mozilla Goes Mainstream” mainly about the marketing effort behind Firefox. It’s a pretty interesting read. Check it out.

LG CU500

Tonight I replaced my 2+ year old LG vx6000 with a LG CU500 [Amazon]. Family plan upgrade time. I haven’t had too much time to play with it. Perhaps later I’ll take a few test photo’s outside in daylight (if it’s not raining) and see how they look, and perhaps upload them. I first setup […]

MIB Repository

If you occasionally need to work with SNMP but don’t really find reading or locating MIB files to enjoyable, checkout this MIB Repository. I found it fantastic for reading quickly through MIB’s. Still doesn’t make SNMP suck less… but hopefully there will eventually be a cure for that.

GeoLocateFox 0.2 Released

Last night I pushed the bits for GeoLocateFox 0.2. The changes aren’t very many but it’s pretty cool. Add HostIP look up (disabled by default) Add support for newer Flock, and Firefox through 3.0 alpha Go to the options window (open up the extension manager, right click on GeoLocateFox, and select options) and check the […]

Mac Pro Disected

I think I just shorted out my keyboard with drool looking at these pictures of a Mac Pro being closely examined. Oh boy is that one amazing system. Also note this parody of the Apple commercials.

Cleaning Up The Rats Nest

I have 2 computers on my desk. Despite the wireless network, keyboard, mouse, bluetooth… it looks like a rat made a nest behind my desk. It annoys me to no end. It looks like Belkin has been working on that problem with some new surge protectors that take into account cable management. Perhaps with some […]

Monkey’s On A Plane

Oh boy would “Monkey’s On A Plane” be a blockbuster. Just a blank tape with that title would make millions. Film a real movie, and it’s [pinky in mouth] billions. Well, apparently enough monkeys travel on commercial airlines every year to warrant their own section in on the TSA website. I’d love to have a […]

Apple’s Report On iPod Manufacturing

Apple just published a report of it’s findings during an investigation into one of it’s suppliers (Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. aka Foxconn)after a report about mistreatment of employees. I must say that I’m rather impressed with the report they released, it’s more thorough than I ever would have expected to see. Noteworthy is confirmation […]
