  1. Surrendering To Google Calendar

    I surrender! I tried to make Google Calendar work the way I want to work, but it just won’t. Instead of fighting against it, I’m reversing course and doing my best to work with it. What I Wanted A little while back, I decided that I needed to start archiving data by year1. I still…

  2. Twitter Addiction

    I wanted to post this to Twitter last night: Thoroughly baffled by the 1-2 emails I get complaining that WP Mobile doesn’t auto-detect the iPhone. Isn’t the “real web” the idea here? but Twitter was down. I checked again this morning and it was still down. So then I wanted to bitch about Twitter being…

  3. MX Revolution: Flashing Red Light in Cradle →

    I just got bit by this. The AirPort Extreme base station I set on my desk (temporarily) was causing the MX Revolution to flash a red battery light while sitting in the charging cradle; and it would not charge.

    Unplugging the Airport base station (and, I assume, moving it) allows the mouse to charge just fine. Hopefully this will help future Googlers on this topic.

    UPDATE: I think I spoke too soon. I’m still getting the red flashing battery, but it appears to be charging – at least somewhat. I’ve ordered a new mouse.

    UPDATE #2: It appears “the mouse is defective”, however they won’t replace it since I bought it on eBay.

    Dear Alex,

    Thank you for contacting Logitech Online Support.

    My name is Rosheni and I will be assisting you in your issue.

    I understand that the MX Revolution will not charge. If this is not correct please let me know.

    With regards to your issue, I would like you to ensure that the steps below are taken.

    1. Please make sure the connection (gold) on the charger and the mouse is clean and they do a contact when the mouse is placed on the charger.

    2. Please have the charger plugged in to different power outlet and check.

    3. Please make sure that the AC connector is plugged into the power-outlet properly

    If the problem persist, then the device is defective. Due to the reason that the mouse was purchased from ebay, it would not be covered under Warranty.

    Thank you for using Logitech. Have a great day ahead, Alex

  4. Around the web

    $100 Hamburger at Merced and Air to Air Pictures – I know Steve O’Grady doesn’t always care for Jeremy’s flying posts (hence is move of RedSox posts to a separate blog, which I also understand), but (see comments) I enjoy a little humanity mixed in with my tech blogs. I liked this post. The wee…

  5. VodPod WordPress Plugin

    Last fall, Crowd Favorite had the opportunity to build a WordPress plugin for VodPod. This was a fun project. We used the VodPod API and built some shortcodes and template tags for WordPress that make it easy to put a VodPod video player into a WordPress post, page or theme. The VodPod team then combined…

  6. First Day in the New Office

    Today was our first day in the new office. Over the weekend we assembled desks and chairs, unpacked new monitors phones and hard drives, and set up the fridge and coffee maker; so today we were pretty much ready to hit the ground running. We had a number of things scheduled: DSL installation Bottled water…

  7. SuperDuper Leopard Progress →

    If my new idea works, this will hopefully only delay things a few days, which will be plenty of time to fill the comments with complaints of our laziness, incompetence, lack of communication and general suckitude. Have at it!

    I’m hoping to see a Leopard compatible SuperDuper very soon.

  9. Office Space

    Crowd Favorite now has it’s own office space! This is how it looks empty, I imagine it’ll look quite different after we start moving in this weekend. Lots of gear and furniture to set up. We’ve got some work to do before it will feel like home, but it’s great to have somewhere to really…

  10. ShareThis 2.1

    ShareThis version 2.1 is now available for download. I’ve been running version 2.1 on this site for a little while now without incident – it’s working nicely. This new release adds several often requested features, and fixes a couple of issues: You can now use a template tag to explicitly add ShareThis to your theme…
