AT&T MicroCell? Gone…

UPDATE: The site is up! AT&T 3G MicroCell It is just not available in my area yet. Over the last few moths I had heard about AT&T’s rolling out a new “MicroCell” that would allow you to plug the device into your own high speed connection to create a micro cell. Given that we do not get very good reception anywhere inside our house, this would be ideal. Trouble is, while there are various references […]

Snow Leopard – It’s the little things

This afternoon I installed Mac OS X 10.6, otherwise known as Snow Leopard. So far it is going very well. A few minor conflicts (Logitech’s Control Center, Nambu [twitter client]) but Exchange on Mail/iCal/Address Book is very nice. But it is the little things that are nice, such as my MacBook Pro being able to update the time zone automatically. (Cell phones have been able to do it for ages, why not notebooks?)  

Snow Leopard and Nisus Writer Pro

I was going to leave it as a short email, since others have said much more on the topic (see below) but then I came across […]

Top exam howlers – from Times Higher Education

These are from Times Higher Education, UK. US bibliobloggers, do you have any good bloops, blunders, or gaffs to share? The “Google generation” finds it hard to imagine life before the world wide web, it seems. A student of Leo Enticknap, lecturer in cinema at the University of Leeds, explained that a political group “used the internet to publicise their cause, just like the French Resistance did during the Second World War”. On the other […]

Testing… Twitter Tools

Twitter Tools for WP seems to be acting up again with some combination of my WordPress plugins. Throwing 500 errors when I post. This is just to test that. So… with my various combination of plugins turning on Twitter Tools results in Error 500 when posting and the “Comments” not showing up in the main Dashboard. Other than that everything seems to work just fine. Go figure. Current plugins (anyone see any real trouble here?): […]
