Wow. I love using QuickBooks. Like I love nailing my funny bone!
QuickBooks is one of those slow programs that you have to use when it wants to work.
Cause when it’s not working,
Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x00000000189ffff0

PowerPlant? PowerPlant? What?!
Why are they still using PowerPlant?
And why does this program crash so much?
Haven’t they heard of QC?

I’ve been plagued with Apple Mail asking me for my password, over and over and over again.
I switched over to Thunderbird when I thought there was no solution, but it seems that there might be a solution

My heart goes out to those in Japan who have had to endure the 8.9 earthquake that struck last week.
Here is footage of a tsunami that followed the quake that hit Japan:
It seems that the link to the original video is broken.
Here is news footage that includes some of the original video:

I was looking at
voter turnout from the earliest election to today and looking at the data graphed in Excel reminded me of Antarctica.
Here is the graph:
And here is Antarctica:

I hope the game is as good as the trailer… and if it is, I’m looking forward to it:

Damn! This seems like a perfect mix: AMD, which took over ATI, uses it’s graphics cards to leverage the OpenCL architecture to
create a plug-in for Maya!
It actually makes perfect sense since OpenCL can produce some outstanding results when paired to a video card that has lots and lots of GPU’s, like the ones that AMD produces:

I gave up on trying to get a UIPickerView to work properly on a UITableView.
In a previous post, I had mentioned how I was having problems with this not working out for me.
I was having two problems with the UIPickerViews I created:
The UIPickerView did not not respond to gestures
The UIPickerView did not fill out to the full width of the screen
So instead of spending any more time on this, I took a look at other applications that have the same workflow for this and I decided to use a separate table view to replace the picker wheel.
And now, I keep on marching… coding along…
Just keep coding, just keep coding…

I have an old Motorola RAZR that I wanted to power up, but I gave away all of the chargers during my town’s last e-cycle pick up.
I wondered if I could charge up the phone via a USB cable, but all of articles I read pointed to this only working on a PC and having to install special drivers on Windows for this to work.
That’s not too bad, but the cell phone’s battery was completely dead.
So, I taped 3 AA batteries together in series and used copper cables to attach the positive and negative ends of the ad-hock power source to the cell phone’s dead battery. Thanks to this post for the tip:
Solve USB charging issue with RAZR
The phone came back to life and I connected the phone to my PC to charge, and after a while, the battery had enough charge for me to do what I had to do.
To my surprise, once I connected the phone to my MacOS computer, I found that it would charge on that OS without the need for any special software.
