A simple iPod trick

I got tired of schlepping all my new music onto my iPhone.
Solution? A "Recently Added" smart playlist.

Since I listen to a lot of LOG podcasts I limit the playlist size to 2 GB so I don't blast my poor 8gb iPhone.

Set up one of these, add it to your list of synced playlists, and you'll always have access to your latest podcasts and music with your phone.

Uh Oh

I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords and wish them the best of luck on their hostile takeover of our planet...
Kevin Warwick’s new robot behaves like a child. “Sometimes it does what you want it to, and sometimes it doesn’t,” he says. And while it may seem strange for a professor of cybernetics to be concerning himself with such an unreliable machine, Warwick’s creation has something that even today’s most sophisticated robots lack: a living brain.

Life for Warwick’s robot began when his team at the University of Reading spread rat neurons onto an array of electrodes.....

San Francisco is a strange place...

I'm sitting in a cafe on a cloudy day, listening to a guy badly
repeating an explination from "This American Life" for the cause of the
economic crisis. This is more than a little surreal.
Here's a link to their podcast.

Do not buy Fallout 3

Do not purchase the PC version of Fallout 3. When I first brought it home and started it up, it crashed 3 seconds into the opening movie.
I installed a patch. Same problem.
I installed another patch, I was able to play the game.
Now, however, 5 minutes into the game the keyboard and mouse simply stop responding. The only thing I can do at that point is force quit the game and re-start it....for another 5 min before they stop responding again. I've sent emails to their support network who's auto-responding-bot told me I'd be contacted in 48 hours. That was 4 days ago and I haven't heard a word.

I'm left with a powerless rage I haven't felt since I was 14 years old and my modem stopped working. I really want to play this game, and yet, I can't. All I can do is vent my frustration to you, poor reader. So unless you want to go on a mountain dew fueled killing spree, I'd suggest staying away from anything made by Bethesda Software.

I'm finished now.
