I must admit that the iPhone 6s+ camera has compelled me to leave the heavy camera equipment behind more and more often. The little device does some amazing things, things I literally never thought would be possible with such a tool. When I really need a quality shot, however, I still bring out the Canon glass, […]
Here are a few other PhonePhotos from my week in the city. I want to brag about Affinity Photo: perspective correction is really easy. Removing people, puddles, and objects (such as cars) is a mouse stroke away! Numerous distracting center foreground reflective puddles were easily removed from the above photo of San Francisco’s City Hall. […]
This past Saturday we were off to the San Francisco Symphony! This was my first ride on the Muni: the J line to Vann Ness and Market, which is a block south of Davies Symphony Hall. We ate at Il Borgo, one of our favorite pre-symphony eateries. The walk, however, was a little less than […]
Yes, we bought a little place back in San Francisco, and I spent this past week setting it up—well, mostly. The special-order furniture has yet to arrive, but the basics are now in place. I’m always amazed at how much time is required to set up even the smallest apartment, especially when you don’t know the […]
I’ve mentioned before that when I lived in Atlanta 8 years ago, I drove like the proverbial bat: insanely fast. However, I never tailgated, weaved in and out of traffic, nor did I text or email while driving. I may have squeezed through a light or a few. Driving in Atlanta today is like driving […]
I admit it. I told a little white lie. I did it innocently enough. I swear.
Thought I should share a bit about my last few profile pictures. The above is my latest selfie. I decided to try something radically different: partial face focusing on one eye without my glasses.
Pages 5.6.1 lacks this fundamental, basic feature. Pages technical support didn’t even know this. What??!! Seriously??!! The feature is available in Pages ’09. Their recommended solution: export the document out of Pages 5.6.1 in the old version’s format and number the pages and print them in that version.
My recommending a 20 minute online video is unprecedented. However, my guess: if you start watching this thing, you won’t be able to stop until the end. It’s intense. It’s astonishing. It’s filled with, “Oh my god, no! Don’t … Noooo!” moments.
You assholes are getting what’s coming to you! And you more than deserve it! You and your absurd 300GB bandwidth limit! Your horrific phone system. Your wretched customer abuse masquerading as support. Frankly, I hope Brian L. Roberts, CEO of Comcast, loses his job, that all of his good employees go to work for Google […]
