arrow 19 January 2010 by litster All I need to know about life I learned from Avatar:

1. Corporations are evil. 
2. Marines are evil. 
3. Ex-military contractors are evil, unless they are cripples. 
4. Scientists are good. 
4. George Bush is evil. 
5. Marines are too stupid to check who swiped the escaped prisoners out. 
6. Maybe the Ewoks did stand a chance, after all.
7. Even though the Navi have "carbon-fiber" skeletons, apparently 4 or 5 shots from an assault rifle, or one well placed board are all you need to take them down.

It was a decent movie, though.

arrow 23 March 2010 by litster I want to unfollow my used car dealer. :(

WTF?  Austin BBC World Service 3/17 18:47

While listening to a recent BBC news podcast, I heard about a recent present that used car owners in Austin got; cars that would randomly start honking their horns or refuse to start entirely.  It seems that this dealership put some kind of remote (probably via cell networks) device on all of the cars they sold and a disgruntled former employee, Omar Ramos-Lopez, decided to take revenge by logging into the dealership remotely and activating the system on over 100 cars.  


This is not a computer security story, or a "Admins gone bad" story, this is a privacy rights story, as in "My two-bit USED CAR dealer can stick a GPS Tracking/Data Transmission/horn honking/CAR DISABLING  remote control device in MY freaking car!" (Granted, I don't know relevant case law about items you are paying off/leasing, but I doubt they magically disable such crap on the day of your last payment.)

Where is Congress!  Where is the EFF!  Did those poor people in Austin only buy a "license" (MPAA/RIAA) to drive their car, or is it their right as an American Citizen to not be spied on without a COURT ORDER!

I suppose people shouldn't be worried about being spied on or have their car DISABLED randomly if they have nothing to hide, right?

I guess I shouldn't be worried about this if I have nothing to hide, right?

This is ridiculous and frightening.  Forget waiting for the spiffy touchscreens and magic hand-waving from Minority Report.  People in Austin are driving their used cars today.

BTW, you guys are freaking awesome.  Thanks for your rants against the RIAA/MPAA/DRM/ACTA Gestapo.

arrow 26 March 2010 by litster TWiT 239/Transcript - The Official TWiT Wiki

Molly Wood Well, AT&T really staked a lot on it. We were talking about this on Buzz Out Loud today like they really realize that they could not afford, just PR-wise, another geek apocalypse like they had last year. You cannot have everybody whose on the cutting edge of smartphone purchasing and being online on the smartphone device talking about how crap AT&T is. So they really doubled down on it and it’s paying off.

Robert Scoble They did. One of the exec’s pointed to all the portable towers, at one of the parties I was at, and they put a lot of portable towers and a lot of brand-new antenna technology and brand-new software for the network and brand-new trunk lines that they brought into the town.

Tom Merritt

That’s great for PR and it will keep them from getting some bad press, but it doesn’t fix the problems elsewhere because they can’t bring a portable tower to every single place they have issues.

Robert Scoble True and in fact the same executive said, see those antennas, they are six foot and in San Francisco we are only allowed to use two or three foot antennas and we can get six times more capacity on these six-foot antennas but the city doesn’t let us put them in. So the geeks need to help us out and help get cities to put more networking infrastructure in. 


Robert Scoble When you go out on a tower – I was taken out on a tower. There is one fiberoptic to the tower. So if you’re saturating that, that link into the tower or whatever it’s gone. There’s only so many connections that it can keep. It’s a Wi-Fi problem. We have these problems with Wi-Fi at every conference, right. It’s expensive and difficult to deal with a lot of people who are all using their devices and all using a lot of data at the same time.

Offering something infinitely more exciting than most PC games - the opportunity to drive a tractor - new additions to the gameplay for 2011 include online multi-player mode and cows.

you use your Hotmail password to log in?
I'm sorry, but WTF?

Task mgr is different but nice and clean 

The network slidey thing is really random.  Why two completely different interfaces? 

ah, the start searc thing really isn't gone.  It is just :secret:  you start typing to get the serachfor files and such.  weird.  I don't like the fact that you have to hit "tab" to select what you want to run

at leat the windows+r thing is still there, so ar old favorite like mstsc, msconfig, etc.

soclailite?  what is this?  and why can't I get back to where I was by hitting "esc"  weird.

At least the scroll button on the mouse scrolls this weird app tile thingie.

I wonder if this is gonig to be MSFT Gadgets 2.0.   That was really an idea that didn't really take off.

change user tile.  ok.  Ah.  webcam is nicely supported.  
For heavens sake, MSFT< "tap on screen to take a picture"?

Also, let me bloody use the escape key to go back.

Computer button
GAH!  oh yeah. the ribbon.  hrm.  

IE->windows live photo gallery.  Hmm. click to install silverligt.  Interesting.  I guess IE really ISN'T going to have polugins anymore.  What does this mean for silverlight, I wonder?

Let's see what's installed by default.  Mahjong for my wife?  I suppose not.  Hrm.
Looking at Task Mgr, it's interesting that the "tile" apps are "suspended".  interesting.  

Alarms?  WTF?  On a desktop no less.  Will this be WP7 too?

I see alt-f4 doesn't work in these appy things

let's look at the "store"

oh.  sad day

well.  off to see how fast this thing boots.  I guess.  Or reboot and do something else.  I wonder if windows blows Linux away still?

or not.  how the F do I shut this bloody thing down!?

Oh, I remember that I was supposed to push the power button.  Gosh, MSFT< I know that you want people to think that you're hip, but geez.

Oh really.  It's "left corner, settings, power button?"  really?

About 70 seconds.  The swipe up to unlock thing was a little stupid.  ugh.  but tat was from bios.  let's count from actual control to windows bootloader.

Woah!  third time's the charm, I guess.  10 seconds.  from the "boot from drive" screen Again?

10 seconds again?  actually, 7 seconds to the pull-uppy thing.  wow.  I'm going back to vista to stab myself in my eye while I wait 10 years for it to boot.

gmail. hilarious.  they are using the same design dept.  square is back in.  now more roundy stuff, I guess.  Perfect.  I hate CSS for rounded corners.  Plus all of the magical roundy icons.

installed refit
installed boot camp
installed windows
instal ubunut  (wrong version
installed right version
uninstalled ubuntu, riped out partitions, instaled ubuntu
ubuntu asked me where to install grub. I don't know, install it in ubuntu partitino

codltn boot to windows, obviously tat wasn't the rigt choice
ripped out entire windows partitions using gparted, 
mac freaks out, windows installer (not the rght type of parittion
mac - partition map check failed because no slices were found

booted back into os x for the 100th time to try and get boot camp to recreate the partitions

boot camp complains 

booting to lion recovery failed 

oh lord.  I started taking pictures of this s#$@  this is ridiculous.  

after copiuos reading, decided to wipe the disk from the recovery usb thing. 
made a "time machine" backup and restored that.  that f'ing worked
also made a "recovery usb"

download refit
install refit.mpkg

refit, doesn't show up at first.
run /efi/refit/, or reboot again


the original prblem after having gparted remove my partitions was "windows cannot be installed to this partition" i think because it was a promary somehow.

don't delete partitions using gparted

now windows is booting by default, so, hold option, boot to os x
ran /efi/refit/ to get refit stuf to show up again (bless)

change "starup disk" in os x ss prefences to ms hd to use refit
ten had to run bloody refit again

Thank you.  holy crap.

make sure to set "nomodeset" on the installer.

Nah, this is the sort of game where it's just got too ambitious. You may get one or two good games out of this in a lifetime. Where the planets align and people do what the fuck they're supposed to do and the game goes according to plan.

But that just won't happen 9/10 times. Take EVE. EVE tried the same scale with their combat system and that just involves floating in space clicking on someone and it's nigh on impossible to organise the supposed epic battles in that in a pure (ten times more organised) RPG setting.

It's time for a big reality suppository, which is a shame, because in a perfect world. This would be the greatest game ever.

Honestly, I have only visited the once, I thought the article was crap, but the comments were good (not good enough to visit again though). But I came across this Twitter account while reading #nerdpickuplines and thought some of the comments are interesting, so we will see if I keep following them

alot of times the Huffpost feed cuts off, so you lose the link, well if you go to then you can find the full link

update 3-24-09: they changed their name to huffingtonpost, so I am following that one no w, and no longer follow huffpost

unfollowed: 10-10-12 -- I would get excited there is something new in my twitter feed only to see some crap huffington post story that would take like 20 seconds to load if I clicked on the link, very high noise, very low signal

followed: 1-29-12 but found on 1-28-12, though I can't remember how I found it (account was opened in a firefox tab)

rebuilding the db schema

1 - update config/schema.yml

2 - "php symfony propel:build-sql" from the command line, that will build the correct propel crap from the schema.yml

3 - now, here you should be able to just run "php symfony propel:insert-sql" but I always get a [wrapped: invalid data source name] error that I have no idea what it means, so you can also do:

> mysqladmin -u root -p create DB_NAME
> mysql -u root -p DB_NAME < data/sql/lib.model.schema.sql

obviously you don't have to do the "mysqladmin" command if you have already created the db, and you don't have to worry about the -p (password) if your localhost root has no password. You can also open the XAMPP phpAdmin and import the lib.model.schema.sql file into your db that way.

4 - then, if you changed your schema you will want your model bases to reflect the change, so delete the cache (delete everything in the cache folder) and then run: "php symfony propel:build-all" to rebuild everything, the documentation says to use "php symfony propel:build-model" but that doesn't redo all the base* classes of the model

I got all this from the middle and bottomish part of

propel:data-load in ch16 will also let you import data from a text file, to populate your db

To just rebuild the sql and the classes:

php symfony propel:build-sql
php symfony propel:build-all --classes-only
