New Android IMAP client..Posted by Stealth on Saturday July 10, 2010 @ 03:25pm
[ 9 replies ]
I know some of us that use IMAP for accesses our mail accounts have lamented how crappy the normal mail client is. There a new one I was playing with called K-9 and it's brilliant. It allows for moving messages amongst folders (one of my biggest complaints) and has lots of other cool features. It's free (bonus) and has great adjustments to checking frequency and notification information. I totally recommend changing to this client if you use imap on an Android phone.. and Krux.. I recommend you get an Android phone and join the real world. :-)
The Janitor is backPosted by Stealth on Monday October 19, 2009 @ 03:40pm

There's a new show on TV called The Middle... 30 minute sitcom, funny premise, but Scrub's Janitor plays a dad in this family, and he really makes the show. It also seems pretty down to earth and the characters seems like people that you might run into in small town USA.
Moby - Wait for mePosted by Stealth on Wednesday July 15, 2009 @ 02:08pm
[ 2 replies ]
Another week, another show. I do love summer concert season. When I heard Moby was coming to town, I thought.. eh.. that's something you don't see every day, might be interesting. I hadn't listened to the last two albums much, just a bit here and there, so I didn't know what to expect. Once again, I left the place very impressed. Dude is a hell of a musician. Really, great show! I didn't realize how much of the music could be done live, it was a nice experience. They started with a few tracks of the new album, with a new white girl singing and DAMN.. she's got a good voice. Really interesting style and tracks. It was also cool to see the rest of the musicians swap around back and forth and play different instruments as needed, and there was some really cool version of regular hits.
NIN - Wave GoodbyePosted by Stealth on Thursday July 9, 2009 @ 06:27am

So, NIN came to town last night. WOW, what a great show! Seriously. I listened to a few tracks off the free albums lately (Ghosts I-IV and The Slip) and of course know most of the stuff from Pretty Little Hate Machine and The Downward Spiral, but I had never seen them live. The show was just incredible and better then I would have imagined. The venue ( the Heineken Music Hall) is a great such place to see shows because of it's size and acoustics so that helped. And the euro people (at least these the ones in Holland. It was pretty packed at the PJ shows in Austria and Poland) don't do the whole 'push and shove and pack all in' thing much. There's almost always room to move and be comfortable and not feel squished or anything like that. The lights and effects where amazing and the sound was just clear, booming and vivid. There was a good mix of newer stuff that I didn't know (but liked) and some older stuff (great version of Hurt and Head Like a Hole). I would have like to have heard Terrible Lie and Perfect Drug, but otherwise, it was just fantastic.

NZB search sites sbeing shut down?Posted by Stealth on Wednesday March 25, 2009 @ 08:54am
[ more ]
NZB might not have caught on very big over in the US, but over here, it's big. There are a number of sites (especially in the .nl) that do nzb searches and linking. It's basically a list of files and their IDs that you can use to grab from a new server. Basically, a torrent file for newsgroups. Anyways.. it seems the Dutch have gone on a spree and are trying to take down those sites, treating them like P2P sites. I find this interesting since the attacks against torrent sites, that are free, aren't going all that well. Newsgroups will never die.
By Any MeansPosted by Stealth on Monday October 6, 2008 @ 04:11pm

I don't know if any of you watch Long Way Round or Long Way Down, but basically, they are travel shows with Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman and they took bikes around the world and then from Scotland to South Africa. Anyways.. in By Any Means Charley travels from Scotland to Sydney using everything BUT a plan. Bikes, boats, trucks, barges, etc. It's wild. Just seeing some of the countryside of places that I will never be and how cool it would be to be able to do a 4 month trip like that. BBC puts out great shows and this is no exception. Makes me really look at my trip down down to the south of France via Switzerland, Lichtenstein and Italy, maybe a week or two.. maybe change up my plans to see more stuff.

Speaking of buying old hardware.. Yesterday I was asking one of the Dutch guys here where I can buy a breadboard. I don't have one and I was feeling the need to get one to do some work on this monitor I've got ( cable has been cut, 15 wires.. no idea what's what. Wanted to use it for simple repair). Anyways, he didn't know what a breadboard was, so I showed him some pictures (wikipedia for the win!) then we where talking about how they used to be used to do all sorts of chip design, and then I brought up the Amiga prototype chips (Lorraine prototype) and we talked about that for a bit. Then I got to jones to see if there happened to be any Amiga's for sale cheap in Holland, so I turned to marktplats.nl (Dutch Ebay).. I see this Amiga 600 for bid, and I agree to pick it up for 70 euro. So, after a few hours drive I get there and we're talking and BBS's, floppy swapping and stuff like that. Then he mentioned he had some other hardware to sell and my ears perked up.. I asked if it was a 3000 or a 4000 and he said no, but he had a Amiga 1200HD. Cool.. faster, newer chipset, better expansion possibilities, all good! So, for 120 euro, I picked up a Amiga 1200HD (200 meg HD) and the mouse and joystick and it was loaded with software. I'm giddy. I've been looking at getting an Amiga emulator up and running, but I really just wanted to play with the original stuff, hands on.. I was happy to find one in such great condition. Most of the guys at work don't get it.. but I think it's cool.

I just can't stop laughing..Posted by Stealth on Thursday June 26, 2008 @ 12:22pm

So I'm watching this new show called "Wipeout".. oh man. The commentary is great, the contestants funny ( and not so bright ) and it's just making me laugh. Way better then a new reality show or some other show that starts off good and gets pulled. This is like a 30 minute you tube video in good quality. Just funny. I didn't see anyone share off that new Japanesse game show thing posted, but I'm looking to give that a go some time.
no more soldering copper pipe?Posted by Stealth on Sunday April 6, 2008 @ 01:35pm
[ 5 replies ]
I don't know if any of your other dorks will find this interesting, but as a former mechanic.. I thought it was pretty cool. So I'm here watching an episode of American Chopper and noticed they are building a bike for a company called Viega. I guess they are big in the plumbing world or something. Anyways, what struck be as odd was a new pipe connection system they had. Instead of using the old method of soldering pipe, they are using a pressed fitting that include a seal. You take this powered tool, give the trigger a squeeze, wait 4 or 5 seconds and then done. Next union. They say that in most circumstances, the union will hold longer then the pipe itself. I know brazing and soldering can take a while, so the idea of the system is very cool, but I just would have never thought about it. they say it's good for most water uses up to 200 psi (0-250 degrees F).. that's plenty for most housing and business systems. Pretty cool.
Intersting problem with Wi-FiPosted by Stealth on Saturday March 22, 2008 @ 06:40am

So last week I was troubleshooting a problem with my MBP, a few months back I started having issues connecting to my Wi-Fi network. I hadn't changed anything that i recall, but I did notice that it was after a Apple update. I could see other networks, but not my own. It was odd. So, I tried an older version of OS X, an updated latest version and even a Ubuntu install. No matter what I did, the damn network would never show. So, i picked up a new Airport Card.. that didn't help either. So, after a few hours of playing and trying things out, I noticed that I had the beacon setting on my router set to 500ms, vs the default 100 ms. I changed that back and that made all the difference. So weird, but it seems an update in the Airport driver made it so that if it doesn't get a beacon within a particular threshold, it gets pissy and stops seeing the network.
