I record a lot of concerts and have for many years. I started with a point and shoot camera that took video and it was relatively good for video but lighting was a problem and audio was often quite bad. I’m so impressed with how each new iPhone handles the very load bass of a live concert better and better. The last show I recorded was one of the best I’ve managed and that was Spoon at the Orange Peel in Asheville, NC a couple weeks ago.
I thought this glass was share-worthy. Flying Saucer has a pint glass night from time to time where you can get limited edition beer glasses. They often align with holidays or events and this was the glass for Father’s Day 2017.
The idea of offering recommendation services for products and services is a bit of a new concept for many. It walks the line between an analyst service and a kind of free third-party pre-sales service. Explaining this clearly while also letting people know it is free can take a lot of reading. I was not convinced people were bothering to digest my offering and so I decided to have an explainer video produced.
Getting CGMiner running on Raspberry Pi was a fun challenge. I really don’t know but a few simple Unix commands so it was a painful process, but here are the steps and links I took to make it happen.
As I’ve spent more and more time in recent years working in Scrum environments, it’s got me thinking how this agile process might adapt itself well to projects outside product development. And being the “AppDeploy” guy was naturally compelled to think how it might apply well to the world of application packaging.
I caught Sleigh Bells in Charlotte earlier this week and it was a great show. It was short at just under an hour but tons of energy and a great performance for what was not the greatest turn out.
At DellWorld 2012, the evening event was at Austin City Limits and the description was very odd and read only “Camp Freddy and featured guests from Linkin Park”. I’d never heard of Camp Freddy before, so like many, was in for a big surprise treat!
DirecTV to AppleTV. It’s not as complicated as it sounds and may be obvious to someone who has all the parts, but here’s how I pulled it off.
Virgin Mobile FreeFest is on its way this October 6th. I’ve gone the last couple of years and it is always an awesome time. This year, I’m most excited to see Jack White, Ben Folds Five and Skrillex. A few other bands on the list are interesting too, but most I’d not heard of. As a Spotify user, I’ve created a collaborative playlist containing the top few songs by each band in an effort to make sure I don’t regret making my way over to one of the smaller stages to catch a future favorite. Check out the playlist here!
I love my gadgets. I’ve been buying up the latest toys for some time and am the target audience when it comes to products by Apple and now Microsoft. However, Apple has been doing this for a while and I’m invested now. What would it take for me to jump on a new platform (and what that really means is to invest in another set of applications)?
