Mac ADSL OmniGraffle Stencil

I’ve always loved OmniGraffle, and I’ve always loved the simple lines of the Mac ADSL Stencil. I don’t like Graffletopia and paying for free stencils. I finally found the original location for the MacADSL stencil…. it’s here:   http://www.macadsl.com/actu/network-stencil-omnigraffle-macadsl   It’s so old it’s still a .sit file, so I’m attaching a .zip here so…

Plex vs. XMBC on AppleTV

So now that XMBC is available for AppleTV2 it’s time to compare it to Plex. I’ve played around with them for the past few days and can say that: Plex is worth the extra complexity. I’ve been told (never having used XBMC) that Plex was ‘just a port’ of it, so why not use XBMC…

Conficter- sick

Next, Conficker A enters an infinite loop, within which it generates a list of 250 domain names (rendezvous points). The name-generation function is based on a randomizing function that it seeds with the current UTC system date. The same list of 250 names is generated every 3 hours, i.e., 8 times per day.

Desktop Tower Defense

Normally, I don’t like little flash games. Even normal games, for me, require a delicate balance playability and strategy before I grow tired and bored with them. But I stumbled across DTD a few days ago and gave it a shot. A few hours later, I realized that DTD is so addictive, so engrossing, that…

Ebooks and the 770

I really got into reading ebooks with my Toshiba e805, one of the first PocketPCs that sported a near-VGA screen. Reading on it was pleasant and very easy on the eyes. So I’ve been anxious for the 770 to take over as my primary ebook device– the beautiful screen is certainly up to it. So…
