Palm.Net Must Be Serious About Getting Off Mobitex

Last week I noted an email I received from PalmOne about how wonderful the Treo 600 and offering me a token incentive to buy one and provision it on a cellular network.

DoCoMo Quarterly Revenue and Profit Drop

NTT DoCoMo’s quarterly revenues dropped 2.5% compared to the same period last year and operating profits fell 13.4% to ¥170B.

The Next Big Thing™

It’s certainly not a secret that for the past 20 years I’ve put my money (read “derived my income from”) where my mouth is. (The skeptics among you will ask why I waited until I was 30, but the answer to that one lies in another post, or long series of posts.) I have an […]

“We need to turn back some of the creeping, un-Pennsylvanian and sometimes un-American traits that are coming into some of our politics.” – Teresa Heinz Kerry, at a reception for Pennsylvania delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Boston last night. “I didn’t say that…You said something I didn’t say. Now shove it.” – Teresa […]

OK, We’re Getting There

I’ve moved the IP address of the server over, and am posting this to the moved blog via an off-line editor.

Oh Yeah!

So I’ve been working to move my MT installation from Mac OS X (10.2.8) to another machine running 10.3.4. I’ve gotten everything working except the image manipulation that I use to create thumbnails of uploaded image files. Movable Type supports ImageMagick inherently, but I couldn’t get it working on either 10.2.8 or 10.3.4. I could […]
