  1. You had asked about a post I had written over at http://www.thingsthatmademegowtf.com/2009/08/adventure-in-voiding-my-macbook-pros.html this past April. Sorry for just getting back to you now, but I was going through revision and noticed three more nice words. What model does Apple System Profiler report your Macbook is, e.g. MacBook3,2 (or a family #). This will help me diagnose why your fans may be spinning faster. It’s possible that the increased power load is drawing more heat to cool, but MOST heat is generated from the GPU and CPU, so that is unlikely. This is certainly a curiosity! Is the drive grounded out well?

  2. I found your website and noticed that you have a solid technical background. Wanted to pass along an open source project that you might find interesting. Zurmo is a highly sophisticated open source CRM project that is written in PHP utilizing JQuery, Yii, and RedBeanPHP and relies heavily on test driven development.

    Right now, we have 1000+ unit tests running across eight server configurations. It would be incredibly helpful to get your technical feedback and recommendations so that we can improve the application. Take a look and let me know what you think: http://zurmo.org


  3. Hi there!

    My name is Claudia Heidegger, I’m an Austrian singer songwriter currently living in London. I’m about to record and self-release an EP during the next few months and I’m constantly looking for new ways to get my music heard!

    I attached a link to one of my songs – you’re not gonna sleep tonight – It would be amazing if you could give it a listen, maybe tell me your thoughts or even do a little review?

    Sending lots of warm thoughts and a big smile,
    Claudia 🙂
