Yahoo Finance message boards

… has to be the biggest waste of space on the interwebs. Clearly Yahoo doesn’t give a shit about them since they are not policed in the slightest and riddled with spam, trolls, and crazies. There are absolutely no insightful conversations going on for any stock. I wonder why they even bother keeping them around. »

Camera of near future prediction

I predict cameras in the near future will begin shipping with wireless , 3G antennas or both. The cameras will be tied into social networking sites so that you can take photos of events and upload them as they happen. There will be a settings page in your camera to enter your Facebook, Myspace or Flickr account info. An option would be available to auto upload all photos taken or to prompt the user after each photo is taken for upload, and finally an option to just bypass that and worry about the uploading only when you are in review mode. »

iPhone 3.2 Wishes (Updated)

Before I had an iPhone, I had just your average flip phone, didn’t care if it had a web browser on it or if it did anything else besides just have a decent battery life.

I had filled up my root partition and after removing some files and moving some others to another partition I noticed no change in my output of df -h Applications were crashing since they couldn’t write to the partition but I knew I had removed at least a few GB’s worth of data. »

Online backup solution for Linux

The past couple of weeks I’ve begun looking into an online backup solution as I start to realize I’d be really really really pissed if something happened to my data. Currently I’m running my desktop in a RAID 1 configuration using dmraid aka fakeraid, under Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04. The reason I ended up having to use fakeraid was because I still dualboot Windows XP 64bit for doing photoshop work and the occasional game play. »
