It is great if working from different computers or just as a backup utility. The best part is the unlimited repositories and collaborators. Just share the folder with the people you want as collaborators and they can easily clone and push. You also can setup to receive notifications on changes made on Dropbox. It is like Github but free.
I use SVN for code control all the time, and sometimes you have to remember to delete the various .svn files that get created when you upload to a website. This little line, executed at the command-line will do just that:
rm -rf `find . -type d -name .svn`
Long time Apple devotee Sinbad delivered a very funny keynote address this afternoon at Macworld, talking for about 20 minutes and then taking questions from the audience. He has been coming to Macworld since 1991 and talked about everything from his first Mac, which was a Macintosh 512K that he said had so little memory that putting in his password maxed it out…. Of note, is the last paragraph when he mentions his favourite apps, and 1stvideo made by a local company here in Kelowna called Vericorder is his top pick.
Pretty neat idea to make your own Tripod Adapter using easily found materials…
There are plenty of inexpensive tripod adapters for smartphones out there, but why buy? There’s no fun in that!!! For this instructable ( my first ) I’ll be showing you how I built a tripod adapter for my smartphone from free, found objects for nothing more than a couple of hours out of my day.
Kaitlyn’s latest attempt to make something with Crayola air dry clay. So far, we’ve made a bowl, a pen holder and the latest, a snowman. If you haven’t tried this yet, it’s fun for all involved.

Handy new post from maniacdev.com about beta testing apps.
Hosting a beta test can be stressful, and issues can arise when distributing your app, or even with just finding testers. I have previously mentioned a nice tutorial on hosting a beta test, and the beta builder tool, but recently found an excellent presentation from Shawn Grimes on beta testing iPhone apps.
Just came across this on gizmodo.com:
You just can’t help yourself, can you? After a night of ruinous drinking, you come home and dial that ex, wailing for them to take you back. Or maybe you need to kick the Angry Birds addiction. Lock ‘er up!
Came across this handy article in my morning reading that seems fitting when you work behind a desk.
For the majority of us, the desk jockey habits of office life consume our bodys health as we consume the dozen donuts left absentmindedly at the communal kitchenette. Our typical office day can last around 8 or 9 hours, leaving us sitting in a chair staring at a computer screen or paperwork. This lack of physical activity can take a huge toll on our backs, our wrists, our eyes, and even our legs. The many of us who are lucky to have these nine to five jobs are the ones stuck in such daily working routines of ill body health. Though office life can be blissful, it can also spell out a literal pain in the neck.
