Avoid Alicante Airport for arrivals with small...
With the new (only) terminal, you’ll have to walk many (!) hundreds of metres to pick up baby carts, seats, walking aids for the elderly, etc. It’s actually right where you pick up all your luggage anyway. To make matters worse, arrivals architecture is vaguely reminiscent of Alcatraz, the Roman coliseum, or the arenas “The Running Man” (the latter probably being the most...

21st century parenting rant
My daughter’s had her first CD-ROM homework today - making this actually more of a late 20th century parenting rant. Anyhoo, so the first thing I get to hear after what has been a comparatively long working day was “Can you please check her computer, she cannot do her homework.” Oh right. So I go eliminating errors: first, the Windows-only educational piece apparently needs...
Kindle 3 web browsing via 3G in Spain
Note for the record: 3G web browsing works fine in Alicante with Kindle 3 UK edition. Absolutely not working with International/US version, though. I.e. the one I still have. :-(
What the world badly needs
The iPhone/Android blend - iPhone usability and release availability immediacy, Android openness and versatility A gadget DB - one of my dream projects for years A web-based AHP (analytical hierarchy process) tool - even more years here Web-based CmapTools KNIME on the web :-) A calibre/Zotero blend - c’s syncing and Z’s Bibtex. Maybe some Mendeley, too…

Tumblr iPhone App
Re-installing can do miracles sometimes - in the case if my Tumblr App, it fixed the audio posting for good. Lost whatever test recording I had before, though.
So audio posting finally works, and I use it to make a fool of myself. D’oh! ;-)
My many lawyer colleagues and friends will hopefully forgive me this one! ;-)

Pondering whether it’s worth the effort to go downstairs, power up my desktop computer and download iTunes 9. Probably not, I’m far too well off tumbling this in a prone position via iPhone… ;-) Methinks I’ll want to check out the new iPod nano this weekend, tho. It’s a nice gift option, just a shame it’s not really available online yet (i.e. on Amazon). So...
Hey #Tumblr, your iPhone app is unstable! ;-/ Audio makes it crash now, before it just wouldn’t post… Anyone aware of update/fix plans?

No more double postings of Tumblr contents on Twitter - I hope.
Audio posting has just failed. :-/
Now the audio feature is fun (and a clear edge over Twitter), but existing iPhone recordings should be postable.
So this is it - having installed the Tumblr app for iPhone makes me more prone to posting. I guess. ;-)
So now I am tumbling, too, eh? Let’s see where this will take me… :-)
