Mountain Lion in Progress... (Updated 20120801)

Here we gooooooo!


Update 20120801 - 1141am: Everything is still looking good. The only issue I have noted is I needed to force a rebuild of my Spotlight database, but otherwise my Macbook Pro 15" seems a bit faster and less subject to some slowdowns I was having within the Chrome browser. Getting used to using the new features like Dictation, but loving the new iCloud connected Notes and Reminders apps.

Update 20120725 - 04:04pm: One small issue with the Installer. Install counts down with typical Time Remaining notice but then starts registering negative numbers (i.e. -9 minutes remaining). Eventually the Installer resets to "About 20 Minutes" and continues normally. I am still waiting for completion of the install based on this new time estimate.

Update 20120725 - 05:37pm: No major issues once installed.

Screenstagram screen saver would not work but failed gracefully.

Needed to install Java seperately

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit    From the iTunes App Store...
