Jewelry + USB storage = <3

Posted by Betsy on February 16, 2009 in Uncategorized |

Jess gave me the best Valentine’s Day gift! It leads one life as a lovely silver bracelet… And another as an 8-GB flash drive! Oh, the nerdly goodness. Oh, and by the way – I promptly made it a bootable Ubuntu drive. Whee!

Syncing my iPhone using Ubuntu! (and magic)

Posted by Betsy on February 11, 2009 in OpenSource, Uncategorized |

Oh, that’s right. No need to adjust your set. What you see above is Windows XP running in a little window on Ubuntu 8.10. And yes, that’s iTunes running in XP. If you squint, you can just barely make out the words up there at the top of iTunes: “iPhone sync is complete.” Oh, yes. […]

My boss generously gave me a Barnes & Noble gift card as a graduation present* (thanks, Melissa!), and I blew it all on a new origami book: Genuine Origami: 43 Mathematically-Based Models, From Simple to Complex, by Jun Maekawa.
