I don't really update it frequently (as you can tell) but yeah, sometimes I figure out some tech thing and I need an outlet to post it.

Today my "media keys" on my mac stopped working. Specifically the Previous, Play/Pause, and Next buttons. All the other "special" keys worked, just not those 3.

Tried a bunch of things. No luck.

UPDATE This was caused by Chrome / Google Music Extension!

http://www.omgchrome.com/chrome-google-music-media-keys/

Open the Chrome app menu
Select Tools > Extensions
Click the ‘Keyboard Shortcuts’ link at the bottom of the page
Find the Google Play Music section
Change any specified media key options from ‘Global’ to ‘In Chrome’

Or you can disable/remove the app/extension from Chrome entirely:
Open the Chrome app menu
Select Tools > Extensions
Find ‘Google Play Music’
Uncheck the ‘Enabled’ box OR click the trashcan to remove

Hopefully this helps someone out there on the internets someday.

That is all.

Well, I think I may have "disabled" the keys by playing around with some other utility software. But I couldn't figure out how to re-enable them without trashing the whole preferences file.

Behold, my first (and possibly only) Mac App. It's basically a compiled AppleScript which does the same thing as clicking the Keychain Access menulet and selects "Lock Screen".

The advantage being that though you can't create a hotkey to select that shortcut menu item, you can create a hotkey to run this app.

Based largely on the Objective-C code here:  http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/80058/lock-screen-command-one-liner/123738?sgp=2#123738

Are you even allowed to even use a calculator during take off/landing? Because that calculus equation isnt going to solve itself!

How many bars on General Veers' uniform?

Bonus: how many of what color(s)?

First right answer gets a bottle of gundark repellent.

I wonder if it'd handle Android 4.1 without lots of tweaking...

This thing can probably out-process my current WDTVLive+ -- but I'm not sure it can handle 2TB of external storage.

Well, assuming it can handle the same external storage as this guy -- http://www.asiapads.com/product_info.php?cPath=190&products_id=2235  it would appear that a 2TB NTFS drive would work! Hoorj!

Story
Tagline
Simultaneously mocking and participating in kitsch culture.
Introduction
I love bad movies. I collect music and movies to utter excess. I'm fascinated by languages. I don't like to play games (very few exceptions). I memorize lyrics. I stomp around to electronic music. I can play kazoo. I'm an atheist Jew. I will order the calamari. I, for one, look forward to our dystopian information society brought to us by Google™. My drink is a Black Manhattan. I was in an industrial art metal band called Beefhoven. I have dedicated my life to fighting scurvy and teaching others of the dangers of contracting scurvy. I make chainmail jewelry (sometimes). I prefer to travel via my bicycle (Surly Cross Check) when possible. My favorite author is Neal Stephenson. I grew up in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. I moved to the west coast to escape winter, then I moved to the east coast, now I moved back to the west coast. The Refuge (Pastrami!) is my favorite restaurant ever. I know all the keyboard shortcuts. I will go out of my way to help you do just about anything if I have the time. I love open source software. I don't like olives. I love to see new places, but hate traveling. I like writing up ridiculous sales descriptions on craigslist. I can make some damn good mint brownies. I eat at restaurants quite often. I dislike corporate chain restaurants. I will never drink water with a straw. I hate bees. I'm always working on becoming a better coffee snob.
Bragging rights
I know all the words to the McDonald's menu song from the 80's.

Joe (co-owner) is super friendly and always down for a chat. Most (all?) of the bartenders here are former Singlebarrel bartenders, which means AMAZING COCKTAILS. They'll custom craft you exactly what you want if you ask. Never had a bad item on the menu, though my personal faves are the Craftsman Burger and the Meatloaf Muffins with mashed potato "frosting".
