PDFcasting

Adam mentioned something about this. PDFcasting has been done—-after all, iTunes manages PDFs, though they can’t open in iTunes itself—-but it’s a novelty. I’m certainly not going to say it will never happpen, but here’s the prediction I will make:

PDFcasting will not take off until someone comes out with a “PDF iPod”. And then it will rock.

Because the “PDF iPod” will not be like an iPod at all. It will have a large screen, and display essentially magazine content. And with luck, it will be made of electronic paper.

It’ll come. Just wait. It’ll come.

Line of the day: 9/16/05

Today’s line is from an actual email, recieved as a campus-wide annoucement at my school. The email is from the Rabbi regarding weekly shabbat services. The line itself appears in bold:

Shabbat Services will take place this Friday (Sept. 16) at 6:30.
Following services we will have wonderful dinner.

Discussion topic: “Does God Bring Hurricanes? And if not What is God doing all the time?”

Everyone is welcome

Daring Fireball Wins

Excuse my language, but this is fucking priceless. John Gruber reports on the fallout of the new iTunes 5.

Thank you, Mr. Gruber.

Woody's cell ring

I have to get this on the record before I forget. I’m watching Crossing Jordan. Great show, by the way. Woody’s cell phone rings.

His ring is a Newton alarm tone.

Aw, hey, Newton. I just pulled mine out again. It’s been almost a year. I’ve missed the little guy,

I’m back! About time, too. Today’s line comes from the forums at LinuxQuestions.org, where jspenguin asks about DTMF detection and uses this sig:

The trouble with bite-sized cookies is that you can only track 256 people with them.

Now I sit back and pray someone else gets it.

From here on...

Ok, look: the phrase is “from here on in”. Not “from here on end”. It can be said “from here on out”.

But not “from here on end”.

Am I clear? Am I wrong? Am I insane?

Comment spam

From the looks of it, I just go hit with a butt-load of comment spam. I’ve deleted it all. If you posted a comment to the last post and I deleted it as spam (and shouldn’t have), drop me a note on this post and I’ll put it back. It can be hard to tell sometimes.

And here I thought I was getting all popular.

Cindy Sheehan Vigil pictures


Child at Sheehan Vigil
Originally uploaded by Peeja.

I attended the Cindy Sheehan vigil in Amherst, MA on Wednesday. I managed to get a few good pictures. So far I’ve only satisfied myself with two. This one is my favorite; the other one (and any future picutes) are available as a Flickr set.
