Everyone will remember at one time or another hearing the following when trying to find a fuse in the house.
“Is it off yet?”
“How about now?”
Sound familiar? I found that thanks to Facetime, I can setup my laptop, or my wife’s iPhone and call my iPhone and see the light go off. No more yelling, not hearing, or ridiculous back and forth. Worked great!
I picked my first lock today. I was able to open my friends overhead cabinet at her desk, she lost her key a while back. Now she has snacks.3 comments
This is the craziest thing I’ve heard in a long time.
“Kaspersky Labs has discovered malware that inserts links to malicious Web pages within ASF media files, posing a danger to Windows users who download music files from P2P networks. Infected files launch IE and load a page that asks the user to download a codec. The download, a Trojan horse, installs a proxy program to route other traffic through the PC. The malware also has worm-like qualities, according to Secure Computing. It searches for MP3s, transcodes them to WMA format, wraps them in an ASF container, and adds links to further copies of the malware, all without modifying the .MP3 extension.”
Ok. So, now that I have a new XBOX 360, I had an extra XBox laying around doing nothing. So I decided to Softmod it using an exploit found in Mechwarrior, an awesome game, which I have played many time and enjoyed. Using the information found at the Xbox-Linux project, I was able to successfully replace the XBox Live menu on my original XBox, with a Linux menu, that boots up a version of Xebian linux. Add to it a nice clean install of MythTV to allow playback of video recorded on my MythTV box and we have an XBox that still plays all my games, and plays back video that I’ve recorded, in perfect quality. Absolutely Brilliant!
I recently bought a Motorola V3 Razr. I have to say it is an awesome phone. Very slim, totally disappears in your pocket, and has a great feature set. Except for one missing feature, video recording. My old V551 had it, so why didn’t this one? They are practically the same phone.
Turns out it was a firmware problem. So, curiosity getting the better of me, and feeling slightly cheated, I went forth to the internet to resolve the issue. An excellent resource for information is MotoModders.net they have all the information you need to hack your phone to get it to do what ever your heart desires.
Staysea is taking a course called “Beverage Management” and she needed a way to get 6 wine glasses too and from school each week. Enter me and my handy hands, to build her a functional and elegant solution. Behold, the Super-Fantabulistic-Glass-Carrying-and-Display-Case-O-Matic.3 comments
This is awesome. Guess the google is an online game that displays 20 images searched using Google, and you guess what the search term was. It’s pretty addictive.
Staysea has been using this desk for a while, with little success. It used to have a shelf spanning the entire width of the desk, where those 2 drawers are now. So, she was unable to pull her chair all the way up. But thanks to a little craftsmanship, I was able to cut out a span of the shelf. Build drawers, close in and face the drawers with the removed section, and give Staysea a brand new desk, complete with modern handles. Now she can sit at the window, get some sunlight, and actually pull her chair right up and under her desk.1 comment
I’ve been using Google Desktop searching for a while now, and find it invaluable for finding information on my computer. But I was always curious as to why you couldn’t search your MSN Messenger history, until today.
Today, I discovered that when you download the Google Desktop SDK, the examples section, has the code for an Messenger indexing plugin. I only downloaded the kit to try and write my own, but this is a much easier. Once I compiled it and registered, indexed Messenger history. Very nice.
Here is the compiled component for install, if you don’t have Developer tools.
