photo.jpg Found a copy of AtisWiki out on the net and brought up my old Wiki locally on my Mac Powerbook. Last archived in 2004, has stuff about our sabbatical year travelling with our RV, all my old rice cooker pilaf recipes, lists of books I was going to read, etc. An interesting slice of history. I ordered a Raspberry Pi a few days ago, and want to put up the Wiki on a 32Gb SD card on the Pi. It will be on the house network only, not accessible outside, but should still be nice to have around.

photo.jpg Put in our new cable modem today, and after a slight hiccup it settled in fine. We are now upgraded from 50Mbit to 100Mbit internet service, which is noticeably spiffier. We no longer have to pay the $8/month to rent the Comcast cable modem, but we do have to pay the $5/month upgraded internet service fee, so it’s mostly a wash. At least Comcast had a page up showing which modems were compatible with the service, so we knew what our options were to buy. The Zoom was on sale so we picked it. …

photo.jpg Sparkfun is doing a Raspberry Pi bundle right now that I couldn’t resist, ordered one yesterday. I’m planning to put up the house wiki on it, hasn’t been up in over a decade. Should be fun!

photo.jpg Very irritated at Apple right now. Just spent time installing iTunes on my husband’s Windows box so he can manage the new iPod nano I got him for Hanukkah. I loaded it up with good stuff for him. I connect it to the Windows box and iTunes says, oh, this is a MAC formatted iPod, I would have to ERASE ALL THE DATA ON IT to make it work with Windows. How freaking useless is that?!!

So I will continue to manage Mike’s iPod and he’ll send me the photos he wanted to download to it. And my respect …

photo.jpg My other holiday present to myself, which will arrive by December 23 (via free shipping, woot). Pointers to interesting K-Cups welcome! I deliberately got a 1.0 version so I can take advantage of all the cups that are available now that the Keurig patent has expired.

Consumer Reports rated this machine as highly for taste and speed as machines costing 2 – 4 times as much, so I went for the bargain. Got from Sears at the same price as Amazon, since Amazon is out of stock. Consumer Reports has…

photo.jpg My holiday present to myself, the next step on from Arduino. Don’t have any specific ideas on what to build yet, but it will be fun doing the sample projects. It’s backordered, so I don’t know when I’ll actually get it (doh).
