Catch you on Google+

Thu, 13 Sep 2012 18:34:36 +0000

As you may have guessed since I haven’t posted here in a few months, I no longer have time nor energy to continue this blog. I am going to put it into read-only mode for now, and will pull it down eventually.  I will still be writing and posting to Google Plus. You can always [...]

Samba taking too much CPU

Sat, 21 Apr 2012 17:38:42 +0000

Since I upgraded to Oneiric, I’ve been noticing problems with smbd. In particular, smbd has been taking up an inordinate amount of CPU. It’s been sitting around 30%, which is impressive since this is a quad-core machine. Nothing should be able to hit the CPU that hard. Especially not smbd, which really doesn’t have much [...]

HowToAmzDownload – pymazon – A Python based downloader for the Amazon mp3 store. – Google Project Hosting

Wed, 11 Apr 2012 20:30:45 +0000

I love Amazon’s MP3 store. Probably more than I should! It is so easy to click the “Buy with 1-Click” button that is next to a song and *poof* there it is in my Amazon cloud drive, and playable via the Amazon Cloud Player. There is one big issue for those of us running a [...]

Easy tutorial to send email through Gmail with sSMTP

Fri, 30 Sep 2011 16:07:16 +0000

Every now and then I install a fresh install of Linux Mint, I always forget at least one program or utility. And that tends to be an smtp server. I’ve used Postfix in the past, but I find sSMTP to be a lot easier, and less resource intensive. I use GMail, both for incoming and [...]

Zotero | Home

Tue, 06 Sep 2011 02:11:47 +0000

Eight days ago, I had no idea what Zotero was. Now it is an integral part of my life. First, a description: A personal research assistant.Zotero is the only research tool that automatically senses content and adds it to your personal library with a single click. Whether you’re searching for a preprint on, a [...]

Got To Do for Android dead?

Wed, 17 Aug 2011 17:53:33 +0000

How do you know an app is well-written, stable and useful? When you don’t know for 5 months that the publisher shut things down! I loves me some Got To Do, the wonderful ToDo app for Android which is based on the GTD method. It integrates perfectly with Toodledo, which means that I can keep [...]

Trying out Blogilo…

Fri, 12 Aug 2011 20:55:28 +0000

I’ve been looking for a desktop-based WordPress client for a while now. I’ve tried a few, and never found one that suited me. A quick apt-cache search wordpress found Blogilo. I installed it, and am giving it a try. The first thing I noticed was an issue with publishing. Not good, right? I submitted an [...]

Facebook revealing your mobile numbers

Fri, 12 Aug 2011 00:24:27 +0000

(From my post on Google+): Yeesh. Okay, so I am not one to beleive the numerous “Facebook is stealing your phone numbers!!!” status message memes that get passed on every now and then. Most of them are hoaxes at best, attempts to get you to run malicious apps at worst. I ignore them and never [...]

Humble indie bundle #3. Support Linux developers!

Sat, 06 Aug 2011 19:31:33 +0000

Just bought the Humble Indie Bundle. I love these guys, I love to support charities, and I want to support anyone who makes software for Linux! Sure these games work on Mac and Windows…. but who cares? Can’t wait to fire one of these up on my Linux-Mint laptop. Or my Linux-Mint desktop. Or my [...]

Netflix 1.3 APK works on some unsupported devices

Wed, 27 Jul 2011 15:34:30 +0000

I think I’ve mentioned before that I am using an HTC Inspire 4g running froyo. My phone is not among the handful of devices officially supported by the Netflix app. That makes one very big problem: the App Market won’t allow me to install the Netflix app since Netflix lists the Inspire as “unsupported.” However, [...]
