The Technology Saga Continues

Took the MacPro to TechRoom to diagnose the problem. They wanted to charge me $50 per drive (x4) to back them up, plus the $50 to diagnostic test. I only opted to have them backup the system drive. They kept it for a week, told me the problem was the original RAM modules. It wasn’t the RAM. It’s most likely the Video card. The computer seems to work fine when I’m not actually using it. Bleh, what a waste of $100.

iTunes via iPhone

Apple plans to release an application that will allow you to control iTunes remotely. I’m sure it will be a great app, except for one feature: the ability to change AirTunes Speakers. How sad is Apple that they can’t add this one feature? If I were a betting man, I’d wager they won’t support it.

Update: I guess I lose. Perhaps they got tired of me submitting complaints about this issue. It’s even listed as a feature in the AppStore. That license for Signal just went to waste, at least the author got paid for making a good app.

I hate Technology

Speaking of dumps, my MacPro also took a dump soon after. It’s in the shop now. The three day turnaround is more like seven days. I need to find a good backup solution. Time Machine isn’t good enough. Maybe I’ll try out Carbon Copy Cloner. The last time I tried it, it didn’t work so well. But, I do remember it had the features I needed.

Photos Server

It seems my Photos Server took a dump. Re-installing the OS is probably the only option at this point, although I’m not sure it’s worth it. I might just end up paying the nominal fee for an unlimited Flickr account. Unfortunately, I’m not sure how I can integrate it into the Coppermine Photo Gallery software.
