Using the new Apple Keyboard on a PC
Home, Elsternwick, Australia, 2007-08-22
I’ve been shopping for a new keyboard for a few weeks now. The keys on my old board have been getting harder to press down, and frequently don’t connect unless you hit them direct on. Probably a combination of age, dust and cheapness. After doing a bit of research to make sure it would work okay with a PC, I ended up getting one of the new Apple keyboards which were announced not long after I started shopping around.

A few random tips I’ve picked up from organizing different things over the past couple of months:

The Bamboo projekt site has been getting a lot of traffic from Japan, and following the referrers back I’ve found a few blog articles about it, of which these are the best two. So if you happen to 日本語ができます, then you might like to check these out:
Quick and Dirty Dual-Boot Setup
Home, Elsternwick, Australia, 2007-09-30
This is almost certainly not the “right” way to set up a dual-boot system. But: it’s quick-and-dirty, and it works. Tutorials on setting up dual-boot often get you to create a boot floppy, but as I don’t have a floppy drive in my laptop, after a few iterations, I ended up doing it this way. The process set out below is adapted from that described in an article from the Ubuntu forums.

This weekend just gone, I went down to Koh Samui and Angthong National Marine Park with a group of friends from work. It was such a great trip that I want to write something about it as much to enable me to remember it as anything. I’ve actually been to Angthong before, 5 years ago, but I remembered liking it so much last time that I jumped at the chance to go again. By the way, the correct way to pronounce Koh is “Go”, like in the English word “got”, with a very short vowel sound. The standard Thai to Roman transliteration makes it look like you should pronounce it like “coa” in the word “coat”.

Bamboo 1.0.1 Released
Home, Bangkok, Thailand, 2007-01-16
Last night I released Bamboo 1.0.1 to sourceforge.net. Bamboo is really something of a thinkpiece. It is one solution to the problem of laying out content for the web, a problem space that I think the existing technologies of HTML and CSS don’t adequately solve.
