Behind the scenes

Hmmm...had to change some settings due to a migration by my web host. Hope things are working OK...

Need to clean out all of the MediaManager cruft. That plugin sadly seems broken. Time to figure out a replacement, as I miss having a "Now Reading" section. Perhaps I'll use Multiblog and set up a book blog and run that info in a widget.

Mobile madness

Big fan so far of the iPod Touch. Using it and the iMT interface to post this. Quite cool!

Lance Armstrong Back for 2009?

Looks to be so:


Vanity Fair article

Funny quote from the Vanity Fair piece:

While dining at Chef Melba's in Hermosa Beach, California, Armstrong heard an obnoxious voice, with a thick New Jersey accent, coming from the table behind him: "Hey, kid, what are you gonna do for work this summa?!" Armstrong worried that he had a kook on his hands. "I'm talkin' to you, kid. What are you gonna do?" Armstrong got pissed, he recalled. "I was like ... I think this motherfucker's talkin' to me. So I wheeled around in my chair. It was fucking Don Rickles. And I started laughing.

iPod Touch 2nd Gen

Well, the latest version of the iPod Touch was announced yesterday.

Pros: Cheaper, voice recording (details a little bit hazy), Nike+ (a surprise)

Cons: No camera (a pipe dream for me, perhaps, but there you go)

End result: Ordered one from Amazon last night--had a gift certificate
