Wow, but Eclipse Luna works like $#!+ on 64-bit Linux. Actually hangs or refuses to save a text file as often as a few versions ago on Windows XP. And that, friends, is saying something.

I got to spend a week on a boat with Natalie and Jack, and discovered that they are truly awesome people, as well as fantastic musicians. If you have some time, spend it watching their videos. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Sounds like I may have found a new home for this thing. A guy with a 1957 Chevy in a 1950's themed garage wants it. Seems to think it would go nicely with the motif.

First podcast I ever listened to was recorded in Utrecht.

Didn't know anything about podcasts until a ham radio friend mentioned it. (de n0mql btw)

My worlds are colliding. Not sure how I feel about that. Enthused, yet viscerally uneasy? Heavens.

Oh... and I need to get a radio again. Maybe HSSM, if there are others nearby enough. Otherwise, probably something low-power PSK-ish. Hmm.

Must remember to view this tonight.

And who knows? Maybe try it this weekend.

I saw that, and figured the WeMo probably already was operating a relay, so why buy another one to put outside the unit? Can't I just hack into it and use the relay inside? Turns out: yes.

So now I can send an SMS to IFTTT, and (indirectly) Siri can open my garage door for me. Or close it, of course.

Quite amusing.
 
Apple executives had a lot of kind words for the products they announced this week.

And here they are, cobbled together by a +TWiT editor.

Very lolz indeed.
 
Chris came by for my first show, and did a pretty silly bit with me. I don't want to give away the bit, but here are some bloopers from when we were trying to set up a clip together.

My show, The Wil Wheaton Project, airs every Tuesday at 10pm on Syfy.

I know that it will be online at Syfy.com, and I suspect that it will eventually make its way to Hulu and stuff.

A musician friend invited us to the debut show of an Elvis tribute band. Had never been to S&S, so looked online to see if it was a "only tombstone pizzas" sort of bowling alley. Most online reviews said food was good, staff wasn't so great. Figured it was worth a shot, as we wouldn't be in a hurry for our check anyway. Everything exceeded expectations. Staff was courteous, attentive, professional. Food quality was as good or better than bar-and-grill typical. We have no complaints, and would not hesitate to go again.

Charming, Friendly, Helpful and Delicious. OK, that last one was about the donuts themselves, rather than the gal behind the counter (at least, AFAIK). FRESH Strawberry Filled! I mean, not freshly made goo, but slices of fresh strawberry!! Basically a strawberry sandwich, with donut for bread. Simply awesome. Also very impressed with the restraint used in glazing. Too many donut shops seem to be competing for how thick they can coat the doggone things with glaze. Eww. For hand-made donuts, this place is *perfection*.
