Added a disk, upgraded apt, apache, and mysql to sarge version. Next up: kernel, grub, and vmware tools.
Even with the help of multiple snapshots, I still haven’t figured out the exact order or things I need to do to upgrade my woody VM to sarge. I tried first upgrading the kernel, which made the vmware tools stuff break. You have to install kernel-image, grub, as well as kernel-headers and gcc3.3. Perhaps my […]
Spent Sunday in sonoma county with the crew. Photos are up. I didn’t buy any bottles for myself, but getting to try a large selection (probably about 20 total) was definitely worth it.
After being somewhat unsatisfied with my Panasonic Monitor 10R’s, I received by Beyerdynamic DT250-80’s on Friday. Not as super comfortable as I had hoped for, but definitely an improvement of the Panasonics. The velour material is much better than leather, it doesn’t get warm and make your ears all sweaty. Bass resposne is much better […]
My credit card application was rejected… again… why send me an invitation to apply when you’re just gonna reject me? So cruel.
Finally got a credit card offer for something a bit bigger than my sad sad 500 dollar limit I have now. The only thing was that it was a BofA letter telling you to go to mynewcard.com. Sounded pretty phishy, but upon googling about it for a little bit, it seemed legit.
When at Rasputin music yesterday in Berekeley, I picked up a couple discs: Simon and Garfunkel greatest hits, and Talib Kwali’s “Quality” album. It’s still true that cd’s give you the greatest flexibility. You can rip them, re-rip them, mix them, or anything. It’s still kindda weird that people are willing to pay 99 cents […]
On an impulse, bought the airport express. It took a while to get set up right, but it seems to work fine. It’s slightly annoying how its rather sensitive to wireless network interference. I wish the audio buffer was a bit larger, enough to handle 1-second dips in signal strenght or something. Also, it doesn’t […]
I’ve read it many other place before, but now I see what people mean. The OS X experience for me is significantly improved with 1.5GB of RAM instead of 512mb. I got a 1 gig kingmax stick from newegg for
Found the little app called “SoundSource” which sits in the menu bar and lets you quickly choose the output device for sound. The other useful thing it does is it can re-route system-beeps and notifications differently from music. This keeps your room from booming with swooshes from ichat and dings from mail.app.
