Going b-armv6-y, Xcode 4.2 and deployment target 4.2

Back-up brain because I know I’ll forget this kind of thing. Was trying to target some Xcode projects to a deployment target of 4.2 and to a device rather than the simulator. Wasn’t getting them running, or rather they would seem to run an finish almost immediately. In the console entries like Fri Nov 18… Continue reading Going b-armv6-y, Xcode 4.2 and deployment target 4.2

Like what he said

Christopher Poole interviewed at Web 2.0 Summit 2011 Is it weird that I loathe and detest Mark Zuckerberg but like the sensible head on this other young net entrepreneur. I especially love his ‘diamond’ analogy for identity, in real life different people see different facets of the same person, different pieces we don’t have just… Continue reading Like what he said

Housekeeping

If you can see this then yet another server migration has been completed yay! I’ve made a decision that if companies are providing a less than stellar service I’m just going to pack up and go elsewhere rather than keep bashing my head complaining, voting with my feet. So no more slower than wading through… Continue reading Housekeeping

Oh Scotland,not *again*. Scotland 2 – Czech Republic 2

Emotional curve of following a Scotland football match: Before match: hope, excitement During match: elation, dejection, elation 10 mins to go: ecstasy “we’re going to qualify, this time we’re really, really going to do it” (reminds me of Charlie Brown trying to kick that American football) 2 mins in extra time: dejection, calamity, the-end-of-the world… Continue reading Oh Scotland,not *again*. Scotland 2 – Czech Republic 2

Searching for sex

No, not me you. Yes *you* there. You in the dirty Mac. With a weary sigh I post an extract from the server logs of this blog. Still if I’ve slowed down all you single handed surfers for a bit I’m glad. Now away to pour disinfectant over my brain.

Rob “CmdrTaco” Malda Resigns From Slashdot

Sniff, the end of an era. Just reckoning for as long as I can remember being on the web I’ve read Slashdot more consistently for tech news than any other site over those years and CmdrTaco must be the poster I’ve read most. Fare thee well.

Civil action

Intrigued to see “Civil action raised after rape charges dropped” and “Scotland star David Goodwillie set to face civil action from woman over rape claims“. Pleased to see that there is  at least some attempt is being made progress the case via alternative means. Shame the criminal side fell through though, wonder how many times… Continue reading Civil action

Abusing the abused

Another newspaper article that makes grim reading “David Goodwillie rape accuser opens her heart on vile internet abuse after charges are dropped“. Wonder what it tells us about Scottish society when a *woman*¬†who’s an alleged rape victim is the one who’s vilified? The footballer guy at the centre of this is in the middle of… Continue reading Abusing the abused

DrupalCon and archive.org

Was noseying around websites for previous DrupalCon’s and found that previous events have video available hosted on the archive.org site. Even better, archive.org offers RSS feeds based on queries so to get an automated podcast download of DrupalCon chicago 2011 you can use e.g. http://www.archive.org/services/collection-rss.php?query=subject:drupalcon%20chicago%202011 The Chicago video alone is 48 sessions and over 11GB… Continue reading DrupalCon and archive.org
