So, I got one of the new Arrandale MacBook Pros a few weeks ago, and I just realized I haven’t commented it yet. I went with the base model; a 2.4 GHz Core i5 with the normal resolution glossy screen. This allowed me to get an Apple Wireless Keyboard, a Mighty Mouse, a Mini DisplayPort… Continue reading MacBook Pro as a sysadmin tool
It seems I finally got everything on my Ulysses together, just as temperatures went up to summer levels. The kickstand arrived yesterday. Having worked my proverbial donkey off for a few weeks, and with more work coming up in the evening, I took half the afternoon off to get the bike done. To get at… Continue reading Motorcycle season is here!
I finally got the last pieces of the electrical system together today, and took the bike for a shakedown ride. Everything felt good – the red light on my new voltmeter turned off when the engine started running, the heaters worked as they should, nothing looked or sounded unusual, that I could see, so basically,… Continue reading Yet another Uly status update
Today I finally found the time to do some more work on my Buell. Status right now is that the new stator is in place, and the primary case is closed again. Remaining tasks: New voltage regulator needs to be mounted. New Deutch connector needs to be installed on alternator cable to connect to the… Continue reading Another Uly status update
I forgot all about time today, but that’s kind of alright, because my Buell is getting closer and closer to being ready for riding season. I got a phone call from XL Bygg that they had received my 1 1/8″ hex head tool, but I didn’t have the time to pick it up. On the… Continue reading Uly status update
Alright, so Apple released their new Macbook Pros, with update to the whole series. The 13″ versions retain the Core 2 Duo processors even though they are approaching end of life. Why? Well, the Core ix series of processors contain built-in Intel GPUs. Problem is, they are limited enough to not support the 3D accelerated… Continue reading Updated Macbook Pro series
I guess they finally decided to release the new MacBook Pros. Updates will follow as soon as I have more info.
So now I’m opening up my Buell, to get to grips with the charging problem that cut last season short. Status right now is I’m missing another imperial size bit. Sweden is great in many ways, but if you want to get hold of non-metric tools, it isn’t. Anyhow, the plans for the Uly are… Continue reading Motorcycle season coming up! (part deux)
The most important bitching-point about the iPad seems to have resolved itself – and exactly for the reason I predicted when discussing the matter with techie friends. The problem was, naturally, the lack of functional multitasking on a user-level. The reason was, of course, that Apple is a company that puts user experience at the… Continue reading iPhone/iPad OS 4
Two days ago, I prepared the Suzuki for use by Tanja for practice, for her driver’s license. Despite standing unused for a few years (since I got my Buell), the only thing wrong with it, was that the gas in the tank had deteriorated some, and that the front brake had gotten stuck. I spent… Continue reading Motorcycle season coming up
