O Holy Night

NBC's 'Studio 60' featured a great rendition of 'Oh Holy Night' back in Christmas of '06. You can download the mp3 from Trombone Shorty's site.

So what are you waiting for, go and download it, turn down the lights and enjoy it - trust me, you will.

Garritan Christmas 2008

Garritan - producers of the relatively amazing Garritan Personal Orchestra, an orchestral sampler - release a community Christmas album yearly (created using GPO). You can of course download it from the Garritan site (and I encourage you to take visit it), but if you do, the mp3s are lacking detailed info tags. And you have to download each individually.

So I've packaged them up (with artist/album/etc tags) in a zip with the cover artwork. Enjoy.

Smoothing Things Out

So here's some photos for Sam. The desktop edging sanded at 80 before routing the edge, the edging sanded at 400 after routing the edge, and the desktop on the ping-pong table.

Droid Recipe

It looks like the coming upgrade to Android - not in the public code, and named Cupcake - will include framework updates, some bluetooth additions, MMS attachment support (okay, so this is a little iPhone), and yeah, video.

And since it's all about intents, applications and the operating system easily share what they can do (their intents) with other applications. So I'm not going to be surprised to see some video call apps hit the market.

On another note, the HTC service manual hit the internet. So if you've just been waiting to completely disassemble your phone, good news.

No Photo, Just Plans

Sam said I should post photos of my in-progress desk building project. Too bad I don't have any. So instead I simply passed on a link to the plans. That's right, check out the desk I'm building.

And maybe, when it's done (yes, it will be done, sometime, I think), I'll take some shots of my own. Then Sam can do an A/B comparison. But he can't burn it. No.

Just checked out CellFire, which lets you store coupons on you cell phone (then, allegedly, the checkout person will enter the 'code').

It reminded me of the application needed for the G1 (no, not another flashlight or tip calculator). There's already a barcode reader (one of the standard 'wow' apps on the G1), which provides barcode services to the two main price comparison apps. What we need is a barcode generator. So I can scan all the store 'savings' cards I don't carry around, and be able to reproduce them when needed. A virtual version of

Of course, I'm not sure how well scanning the generated barcodes would work (although I seem to remember reading about some guy who had success), but just displaying the barcode and the associated data would allow manually entering in the 'savings' card id.

But until the savings card wallet app comes around, I guess there are other interesting things to do with barcodes.
