Very cool. Open source phones? Alacarte 4G?

Evaluating S3QL as an offsite backup from Ubuntu. It makes Amazon S3  look like another mounted disk, rsync works well, handles compression and encryption itself.

Should I update (early) to Ubuntu 12.04? The release date is only 4 days away? What is your experience with 12.04?

How we dealt with Facebook and our 13 year old daughter.

Created a separate Facebook login (on our Kitchen iMac) for Facebook only. Use a different browser "Opera" which defaults to facebook.com. This isolates the facebook "virus, trojan-horse, kudzu" from everything else and she can still collect her friends ;)

In contrast Google+ actively limits children younger than 18.

Thanks :) I only just discovered this myself! I work from home now, so it is nice to have varied music (grouped by style) w/o commercials and talking. I switch between the channels depending on my mood. I have the 30-day free trial, but will probably end up getting 1-year for $45. I guess it could be a business expense ;)

I decided to purchase the Roku 2 XS ($85 shipped, as a refurb 25% off, https://shop.roku.com/accessories/?id=109).  The 2 XS adds a replay buffer, can click and go back 10 (or 30?) seconds.  And it adds USB, and an Ethernet port (rather than WiFi).

I hope to use this to view Movies/Videos from my basement Ubuntu box (running Plex MediaServer: http://www.plexapp.com/getplex/)

Note: There is a nice Plex Client for the iPad http://www.plexapp.com/ios.php
which works quite well.

Then I will try using the Roku as a MythTV front-end: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/ROKU_HD_Frontend

Hopefully, it will all work ? ...

Purchased an HP dv6-6C14NR 15.6" laptop for the kids. It's and i5, with HD 3000 graphics. The price was good, but still a bit slow. Looking for a laptop with discrete graphics.

Wife and oldest have a HP dm4 series. An amazing speed improvement was had by upgrading to SSD.

Installed Ubuntu 11.10 on one of my RAID5 boxes and discovered that TimeMachine backups work (right out of the box)!
I used the following to configure a 1TB sparsebundle for backup (rather than the whole array!)

Also, the following tool gives real control over when TimeMachine does it's thing:

Drupal is great! What version? I did my work on 6, though I tested some of 7 when it was being developed (which lasted forever.) Install drush -- it was a huge help. There's also a good drush admin plugin so you can run it via web front-end, though mostly useful if you can't SSH. (depending upon webhost.) You may have already stumbled upon those, but I'm happy to share insights or hear how things are going!

Ok, so I updated to Lion & now iCloud? Lion is good. iCloud??? What data is stored in "Documents & Data". And why when you choose to not use it, does Apple offer you the choice of "Cancel" or "Delete all Data"? I am not ready to trust Apple that much.

Funny, how the article says "They like it" but then find a flaw, or (yet another) annoyance or limitation.
