Apple Store Photos

I moved my Gallery of Apple Store Photos to MobileMe. I travel to an Apple Store if I am in the city with one. Check out the gallery over there on the right, or click right here.
Thanks.

CRCError

Recorded CRCError podcast last night, I've edited some of it, but I thought I would post something about the website on here. Well.. it's down. So wtf right?
Well something about the hosting company where the server is hosted is retarded or something, I don't know the whole drama or the issue, but we're working to get the server back up, and then punch the hosting provider in the face.

Google Calendar Syncing, MobileMe, and iCal

Recently I've had to start keeping my Calendar on Google Calendar. (For a really good reason, and, it's not the free version of Google Calendar either.) However, I didn't know how I was going to get my iCal to publish to Google Calendar, AND sync with MobileMe at the same time.
Well I started trying to connect iCal to Google Calendar via CalDAV, which I wrote about in an earlier post. However, Google's implementation of CalDAV is still kinda broke. You can't really schedule people's time, you can't see their availability, you can't call people up from the address book, and you can't have To-Do's on the calendar that you are syncing, so that breaks a bunch of stuff for me.
So I was going to try and just keep my calendar on iCal, and have it publish to Google Calendar, well, that wasn't going to work either for a couple reasons. I actually can't remember all the reasons right now, but it had to be something really big for me to abando…

1001

Some insight.
So, here I am at 1,001 posts. What do I have to say? Absolutely nothing more than what I said at 900. Do what you do, say what you say, and people will be interested.
Between my 900 and my 1000 posts, I've picked up about 200% more readers (rss subscribers) and average about 500% more hits a day.
Recently I've picked up a bunch more readers through subscriptions, it's basically like a heartbeat diagram that keeps going up. When my name is mentioned somewhere, or I do a post on the ISC or something, I get a huge influx of readers, then it dies off a little bit, but a few stick around to see what nonsense I have to ramble about. It hasn't been much lately as I've been pretty busy with work and what not.
I'll try and get more active in the future. I promise. I've just got alot going on right now, I'm lucky if I can get through my email.
Speaking of which, I need to do another "processing" email post, as I've changed alot …

Apple Security Update 2008-007

I wish my 1000th post on the blog was way more insightful than this, but it's not going to be. I'll have to write something that really reflects a 1000th post. But it will be 1001.

An actual meeting held via iChat

Earlier this week, me and three of my coworkers held a 4-way iChat Video Conference as a meeting. It worked great.
Of course, as bandwidth decreases, the video codec is dynamically reduced, however, the 4 of us had a face to face video/audio chat for over an hour about some code testing. It worked great. I've been using iChat to do one-on-one meetings with one person for a couple years now, however, never had the opportunity to have a call with 4 people. (Never had the bandwidth to sustain it before), and now that I have FiOS... awesome.
