Finally got my Nexus S!!! It seemed like it wouldnt happen, I face all kinds of hickups when trying to buy it….
I want my Bold 9900, but will settle for a Nexus S
I am an avid Blackberry fan, but due to weird circumstances that I won’t go into, I gave my Bold 9700 to my fiancee, and I am stuck with a iPhone 3GS. The iPhone was meant to be a temporary phone, as I’ve been waiting for the blackberry bold 9900 to be released. When it was first leaked on bgr, the timeline for the release was May 2011, but it looks like it won’t be out until Q3....
Bitbucket + Mercurial
I recently found out that Bitbucket had free private repositories, this made me open to the idea of switching from Git to Mercurial. Afterall, using Git+Dropbox can’t possibly be better than using Mercurial+Bitbucket. After reading Joel Spolsky’s intro to Mercurial page, hginit.com, I decided to make the jump. I couldn’t be happier! I love the nice features that comes with...
A mobile 2.0ghz dual-core processors next year!? →
The advancements in CPU processing power has been almost exponential over the last few years… I had a 400mhz phone just 2 years ago (HTC Touch), today it’s dual-core 1ghz, next year dual-core 2ghz… It’s all very exciting to me.
Bradley Wright: Using Dropbox as a Git repository →
So last month I wrote a bit about setting up your own personal Git repositories on a Linux box, and how to use that for sharing code. I’ve had a slight epiphany since then: what if I just used the awesome Dropbox (my referral link, if you’re likely to sign up) to share Git repositories… Decided to not use my cloud server for my source control “main server”, I am delegating...
Amazon to Release Ad-Subsidized Kindle for $114 →
marco: Bizarre: Ads will appear on the device’s screen saver and show up as a banner on the homepage, but will not appear inside books. It’s only a $25 savings from the normally-$139 Kindle 3. I’m sure they can find buyers for it, but at what cost to Amazon’s (and the Kindle’s) image? I can’t see why this will diminish the Kindle’s image. To be honest, I don’t know how...
Rackspace cloud server
I just got myself a Rackspace cloud server yesterday, I was trying the following things on it: Use it as a VPN server Use it as a Git source repository Have a server to play around with the new framework. I am quite excited about this. I thought long and hard about going to Linode, Slicehost, or Rackspace. While Rackspace is the most expensive option if the server is deployed all month, I only...
Commenting multiple lines Vim →
I like to comment multiple lines from time to time. In python you can use the ”’ (three quotation marks in a row) to comment on multiple lines, but I find it seems more appropriate to use that when you want to write comments. When I want to comment multiple lines of code I just use the #. Unfortunately, until I found this, I was manually going through each line and adding a #… I...
