Drupal development, project updates, occasional knee / head slappers
The camera I was using to capture some green screen footage required that you have to take it off the tripod to get to the SD card, which means that the careful positioning of the camera has to happen each time you want to get at the files, which was a huge pain. So, if I could have just streamed the video straight to the computer, no repositioning would be necessary.
After getting the Eye-Fi application set up on my mac, I did a test run with a photo, just to gauge the speed. To transfer a maybe 2MB file took several minutes. That meant that a 500-1000MB video file was going to be incredibly impractical.
So, I returned the little beast, happy to know that I got a chance to give it a go, but it would have been nice if it worked. It's probably not a great fit in general for modern photo resolutions.
This is my son grooving out to some live music at the Boise downtown Grove. The music was awesome but the dancing really got me.
I tried restarting the iPhone, I closed the app in the multi-task bar, I even re-installed the thing, and still it would cut out. It would always take me a while because sometimes they stick some silence in weird paces on the show and it was hard to tell if maybe it was an artistically long pause or something.
Finally, I looked up whether there was anyone else with the same problem, and found this nice article that outlined everything I'd done except for one thing:
Hold the top power button down, then when the power slider appears, press and hold the home button.
This does more of a full reset, clearing caches, brushing out cobwebs, telling the kids to go home. And it worked! Today I wanted to keep running just to listen to more awesomeness, but my 1.5-year-old was ready for home.
So, I'd love any input as to how any of you might be using it, and if it helps in any particular way to build a solid readership that typical comments might not provide.
Here's the settings screen.

This is a pretty awesome thrift store find, magnetized gears in a portable briefcase.
- To open a file in Vim, navigate to where the file is and type (for example) vim nameofmyfile.txt
- To edit text, you have to press i (which puts you in 'insert' mode). To stop editing text, click ESC.
- To save the file without exiting Vim, type : (that's SHIFT + semicolon), a and ENTER
- To exit the file and save, type : (that's SHIFT + semicolon), x and ENTER.
- To search for word, type /yourwordhere (but not when you're in 'insert' mode). Type n to go to the next match.
The command line kind of bums me out sometimes when I really don't know how to get started on something. If you feel the same way at all, hopefully this will help you out.
