IDK if it works in the UK, but google navigation is probably the most useful feature in Android. Definitely try it out.

EDIT: I just took apart that Dell because it crashed again. There are three blown 3300 μF/6.3V caps on the motherboard. Of course, I didn't have any in my kit, and radioshack doesn't carry them, so I'm out a HTPC for at least the next week.

Also, I just got a response from Avenza regarding their PDF maps application:

Yes we are planning on releasing an Android version as soon as possible.
No exact timeline or release date in available at this time.
Thank you and Regards
Avenza Systems
Excellent.

Foothead: Bad Caps is where I get all my motherboard cap sets. In fact, I have a mobo that needs a replacement set right now, so I will placing an order sometime this fall.

That sounds like it's expensive, but it isn't-- last time it cost me only $23 to replace all the capacitors in that motherboard... it's just that I haven't the time right now to mess with it, and I don't want another package of parts cluttering my workbench until I can actually get around to effecting repair.

I just order them from whatever random wholesaler has them cheapest. That way I usually end up with a few extras that I can keep for future projects.

Hahaha, this explains so much.

Also, These (↓) are like the greatest thing ever. They taste just like girl scout thin mints, except with slightly more chocolate.

Aww, apparently there is "Mechanical failure occurred" during the shipment of my HDD. So now my "UPS 2nd day" became a "3 day shipping". So much for the "Guaranteed second-day delivery"

I was ready to back up my HDD and reinstall Win7 too. I wanted to back up my data today because I will be busy for the next three days.

I just tried out Microsoft Image Composite Editor, and it's amazing. Well, the program runs like crap (locked up prolly 5 times while creating the panorama), but the results are quite good. It's tons better than photoshop.

Example: Mount Antero - 360° Panorama from summit - Photosynth

Photoshop version. Note the stretched areas and the spots where mountains don't line up.

Indeed it does. I've had it as my background for the last year or so. Would you like me to upload a .jpg version of it?


I was just looking back at my pictures from that climb. I was like a drunk with that camera. Every picture is tilted 5 degrees in a different direction, and I had seemingly no regard for framing. LOL, altitude. Here's an example.

EDIT: Here's another. I think I was following the horizon on that one. LOL.
