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
Apple Insider has an article on next-gen Mac Mini computers featuring an HDMI port instead of the current DVI. Since HDMI essentially is DVI + sound, the obvious application for this new version is in the living room, where, incidentally, I was planning to put a Mac Mini anyway. If this article is right, it might… Continue reading Mac Mini getting even better as HTPC?
I’ve been following four iterations of the Waiting for Arrandale subject on the forums on Mac Rumors. In short, the subject began as a set of more or less interesting speculations, and quickly deteriorated into one of the most comical displays of desperation I’ve seen since the Amiga period. So what would I like to… Continue reading Waiting for updated MacBook Pro series
