This month I spent writing time with mostly writing songs: 14 in fact. I was inspired by (though not directly participating in) the fawm.org site where people share their tracks from their “February album writing month” where they’re trying to write 14.5 songs this month. 3 of the 14 songs I managed to write will probably appear on the upcoming Neener 2 album.
Up and down sound quality on the podcast. Comparing iOS audio recording and Mac OS X audio recording. GarageBand, Logic Studio and Reaper.
Moving up the results: Okay but not stellar progress in making danmckeown.info the definitive site about people who use that name.
Congratulations to Jessica for winning an award from her employer for her excellent work.
Fallout continues in the file sharing world of the Megaupload.com shutdown and arrests. Some people report losing their files. I’ve always thought that (legitimate) file sharing should be managed at as micro a level as possible–I wrote pacificpelican.us/cms to help make it easy for anyone with web space that can run PHP can easily upload and share files on their site.
A discussion of the file auto-save and versioning system in Mac OS X Lion: I illustrate the change in Lion from Snow Leopard by considering the difference between iMovie 11 and GarageBand 11 (the former auto-saves, the latter uses manual saving). In addition, I consider the different implications of the new system for text files compared to image files.
