New Things For Me

  • Replaced LiveMesh folder sync with Live Sync
  • Fieldrunners for the iPhone may be able to replace RoboDefense for the G1
  • Considering a Popcorn C200 as an upgrade for my A100
  • Testing PlayOn and TVersity Pro for streaming NetFlix, Hulu and YouTube to DLNA devices (such as Popcorn Hour or xBox 360)
    • Found some ‘classic’ episodes on Hulu: ExoSquad, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, He Man, etc.
  • Seriously considering a FitBit when they come out in late October
  • Picked up a Nike+ Sensor for use with my iPhone- and cut a hole out in the bottom of one of my New Balance shoes to make it fit!


  1. I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your blog, you have the exact same interests as myself but you always seem to find the interesting stuff before me. Thanks for what you do.

  2. error 454: thank you for the kind words!

  3. I'm just wondering why you changed from live mesh to live sync? I have been using mesh and skydrive for about 6 months and the two seem to server the purpose as long as I'm not behind my great firewall at work. Mesh still works but doesn't allow for direct control over my firewall. Cheers.


  4. Willey,

    I was trying to do a sync of my pictures (about 19,000 for about 40GB) and Mesh would always have conflicts if I tried to manually sync (i.e. put them on a hard drive and copy them to the other system). Live Sync seems to not have this issue (but it is limited to 20,000 items).

    I also found that Live Mesh was creating 100GB+ of temporay items on my system drive; I am assuming this was from the file conflicts, but it was odd that it was 2.5 times larger than the original folder....

    I still use Live Mesh for smaller syncs and remote desktop- but I am using Live Sync for my music and pictures (The folders that have 100s/1000s of files).

    I am now having some issues/limits with Live Sync so I am still looking at options (dropbox for one).
