Lazyweb Script – make a url / bookmark review taskmaster

Aside

I’m Reviewing a whole bunch of urls in a long txt file of collected urls and bookmarks. Will somebody please create a program or script that randomly selects 5 items from a list of urls, offers them up for quick editing (or rejection) and then opens them in browser — alternatively, just cull n entries from list (w/ option to reject selection) into new file…

Manchester Airport Has Free, Public Wireless

Aside

It’s not really on the way to or from anything, but FYI: Manchester, NH airport has free, public wireless (not open – one nag/term page to click through). About 6 weeks ago, I found that I could grab wireless from Cincinnati airport, but alas, this was locked up under some Bell ISP. I did see a computer-to-computer connection named, suspiciously, “Free Public Wireless!” (the exclamation point pushes it over the edge of seediness). Decided to […]

Shaking it loose

Aside / Meta

Returning to a pre-sxsw template for davidnunez.com… finally completing the mephisto to wordpress migration. I’ve been hacking away at a little app to post/share what I’m going to call “sketchstreams” I learned a lot about how I enjoy working while getting ready for maker faire. I’ll be adding features and tweaking the design on the blog in iterations over time rather in fell swoops. Collect, Wonder, Tinker, Build, Repeat — that should apply here too.

Hack to get all posts with Textmate/Blogging Fetch

Aside

UPDATE (2007.03.20.084041): Don’t do this. It’s an awful hack and will grind your computer to a halt. I want to hack the textmate blogging bundle to do a full download of all posts in a blog and save those posts to local disk. First, I just hacked the bundle to allow user to fetch any post from the blog. Note: This is a slow hack and should only sparingly be used. Knud Möller talks about […]

Skype Tip: Voicemail Suddenly Stops Working

Aside

I’m posting this tip because it took me a course of a week to enter the right combination of search terms to get an answer. Symptom: On OS X, your voicemail stops working. They are listed in your history, but when you click to play, the playback window pops up for a brief second and then vanishes, never playing the message. Cause: For some reason, Skype relies on your having a microphone attached before it […]

Much better

Aside

Man. What a difference a full night of sleep makes (I didn’t set the alarm and I woke up about 8 and a half hours later… ahhhh…) Icing on the cake: giving myself a VERY GOOD shave (i.e. no blood, not feeling like my face is on fire when I am done… just smooth and clean. ahhhh…) Now it’s time to take on the world. Oh wait. That’s what got me in trouble in the […]
