As of today, there have been 10 crime reports issued to UM students by the Department of Public Safety in 2009. One has been cancelled because the suspect was arrested. This is my attempt at mapping the data, using Google spreadsheets and a map gadget. If you want to see the raw data, here is the spreadsheet.
I’ve just started using Fluid to make a menu bar app for my to do lists. I’m using Google Tasks so the data is stored in the cloud and accessible from anywhere. Just make a new Fluid app with the address
https://mail.google.com/tasks/ig, launch it, and then choose “Create MenuExtra SSB” from the application menu. Also try Chris Ivarson’s Google Docs icon find it here.
I was skeptical at first, but this is a must-watch.
If you haven’t watched this yet, do so now.
One thing I’m wondering is how chat will work if you’re not looking at your wave client. I want to be notified differently when I get email from someone than when that same person is online and asking me a question. But as it appears now, these two things are the same, namely someone typing in a wave that I’m a part of. I’m sure they’ll figure this out, I’m just not sure how.
I remember living in California and hearing the sonic booms every once and a while.
Not sure if it’s a great movie, but I was alt-tabbing to Wikipedia the entire time. Some things I learned about:
Writing some code with asserts in it, forgot to finish the line:
NameError: global name 'ass' is not defined
“We’re finally at the senior dance,” Tom said in a prompt, informal fashion.
“I can’t remember how to convert from base class to derived class,” said Tom, downcast.
“All this fruit will go bad by mid-day,” mourned Tom dolefully.
“I love cows,” he uttered moodily.
“This close,” he disclosed.
Author of that dirty e-book app rejected yesterday complains that other e-book apps already in The Store have access to the very same edition of The Kama Sutra. Ha. I’ll respond next week.
The other day, at Panera, I noticed a poster for www.meetatpanera.com. It said something along the lines of, “Schedule a meeting at Panera.” I thought it would be akin to www.doodle.com – you type in your possible meeting times and invitees, and it has them fill out when they are most available to decide the best time for everyone. I even thought it could step it up a notch by asking invitees for their addresses, and then finding a centrally located Panera (after checking that Panera’s hours, of course).
Alas, Meet at Panera is just an e-vite site. You select the store you want and type the email addresses for your invitees. It doesn’t even link to store hours, just warns, “Please check with bakery-cafe to verify store hours.” And it doesn’t list Michigan as a possible state. Ugh. Panera, you can do better.
