True to their e-mail, the lightbulb arrived U.P.S. Kathy noted that it cost over $3 to mail it to us. It’s now glowing in a basement lamp that the kids like to leave on. Now if they just don’t knock over the lamp.
A nice end to a simple process all triggered by an e-mail to customer service. Kodak could learn from these people. So: I can continue to recommend buying the compact florescent lightbulbs from Sam’s. The manufacturer is Commercial Electric or Spring Lamp or TCP depending on where you look on the bulb or box.

I’m using our .MAC account to synch up calendars, address books, and bookmarks. May want to save the $100 per year and open up a WebDAV server.

This is a nice site. I was looking for how to mount a remote volume using script. Need to make sure Yoda is available as a backup destination each day. To catch up i’ll have to do more than 1 tip per day…

The system crontab text file controls events run by the UNIX system scheduler, CRON. It is found at /private/etc/chron. I used Cronnix to update it originally, but Cronnix quit working properly for some reason, so I just updated /private/etc/crontab directly using BBEdit after setting read/write for root using FileBuddy. (Update: I had pasted in a key with a line feed and did not see the extra text. Cleaning out the key fixed this, and Cronnix works fine now. )
Apple added the first 3 cleanup commands. I added the the daily Analog reports and the weekly dump of the MovableType SQL db to Yoda. That way I’ll always have 5 backup copies of the source database. (I’ve masked the password for the mysql user here.)
I’ll end up going to a daily 31 cycle and then a monthly 12 cycle. That will be 43 instances of a 1 meg and growing MYSQL dump.
Update: Using /network/ instead of /volumes/ because I can have a SAMBA volume automount as a network device, but not a volume.

Yes sometimes the wait for the hotline can be tiresome but we are glad that you found this web site and were able to contact us through e-mail. We will send a re-placement to the address you gave @ N/C and you should receive it in about two weeks.
Perhaps for Ted’s historical sign project idea, we should build it all in MovableType.
Matt Haughey suggests using MT for static pages and mini-database applications.
Brad Choate expands on the idea: doing your whole site with MT.

Based on this monthly pricing scorecard, I’m going to switch from Scana to Walton EMC (our current electricity co-op):

However, if I’m reading this correctly, it suggests Georgia should never have deregulated. “Regulated Group” comparisons (I assume in other states) have much lower prices.
