“Reading the EULA is generally a waste of time. “Blah blah blah… bequeathment of firstborn… Blah Blah Blah… eternal soul…“ and so on. Of course, I have created a wonderful solution to this problem. My cat, Simba, agrees instead of me.”—The Agreeable Cat by Anne Loucks
I had a client who ran into the problem of Time Machine not knowing when to start throwing stuff away because Drobo is lying to the system about how much space it has, and therefore Time Machine didn’t know that the drive was getting full. Hence the massive red lights on the drobo, saying that you need to upgrade your storage space. Looks like creating a .sparseimage to back up to is the best solution.

I used to really enjoy my Sirius radio in the car, but eventually podcasts and music from my iPod supplanted it, and I dropped it. The one thing I missed was coming across new music in the random play of the station. However, with Pandora on a 3G iPhone, I can get great stations that I can refine to what I like, and if I touch the thumbs up button, I get a nice list of the songs I like when I get back home. No more taking phone camera shots of my car stereo’s display of the song title. If you’ve got the internet in your pants, who needs satellite radio? I guess the game changed a little faster than they expected.
“Most of these guys are hapless saps who have ignored their wives or girlfriends all year, so they buy the flowers and candy, and set a reservation at one of the city’s most expensive restaurants, all to say, “Honey, I love you.” Ladies, and men, stop it! It’s time to say enough is enough with Valentine’s Day.”—Commentary: Don’t be my Valentine - CNN.com
Perhaps we’ll finally get some insight into the train wreck that is the Adobe Installer. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure the folks who work in the installer group are fine people, but holy crap is it a mess from the user experience side.
What a stupid decision. The same people that are confused about the transition now are still going to be confused four months from now. This is a band-aid that needs to be ripped off quickly, so we can get the wailing and gnashing of teeth over with.
“Here is the recipe for the Warp Core Breach. We usually made ours in large batches, but it can be easily broken down. Here we go: 6 parts Bacardi Superior (or any white, clear, cheap rum out there)
4 parts Bacardi Limon (or any lemon rum you can find)
2 Parts Bacardi Select (Meyers Dark rum also works, or whatever dark rum your store has)
2 parts Bacardi Spice (Captain Morgans also works, but any spice rum will do)
2 parts Dekuyper Lucious Raspberry Rush (formerly known as Razzmatazz, this is the most important part, other Raspberry liqueurs don’t seem to work)
1 part Bacardi 151 (any 151 proof rum will do, since they all seem to taste like gasoline by themselves)
30 oz (1.5 bottles) Sobe Power (finding Aceorla/passion berry juice is too hard to find so just use Sobe Power, besides, the caffeine in the Sobe Power ads an extra kick to the drink)
Mix the alcohol, pour out 10 oz into a bowl, add the 30 oz of Sobe Power, and food-grade dry ice and there you have it, the Warp Core Breach.”—This and other drink recipes from Quark’s Bar, via The Ugly Couch Show/a>, via Five Hundy by Midnight: The Original Las Vegas Podcast
