    Mildly Groovy
  1. I don't own one but I do believe that's what it does. However, I think it puts one source into L channel and the other into R. So if you hook it up to a stereo speaker set, you will get all of one source out of one channel and all of the other source out of the other. I don't know if that's what you were hoping for. You could always get a stereo to monitor adapter as well.
  2. yo dawg, sounds like you want one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0016LDZ36/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=uncbwibl-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B0016LDZ36&adid=1NVKXM2H9RTB8W6J8JY7& or one of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000067RC4/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=uncbwibl-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000067RC4&adid=0STEXK0ACMC148FJ8SQV& For something more complex, this would also work, but all the jacks are 1/4 inch. So you'd need adapters Behringer MICROMIX MX400 4-Channel Mixer https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000KGYAYQ/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=uncbwibl-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000KGYAYQ&adid=0G680D67T88BE0H139D7&
  3. I could probably hack groovyBox.exe to create a photos.xml that has all of the public URLs for the photos in it. Then, make a wordpress plugin that fetches that XML and parses it into a gallery. ... But I am already in my pajamas...
  4. Have you seen this? http://fuz.li/ I've never tried it. But it's the closest thing I've seen. This:http://wiki.dropbox.com/DropboxAddons/TheDropboxPlugin Might be a good lead too. I think if I had a weekend to fiddle around, I could hack one of these into what you're looking for.
  5. I'm pretty sure that this is against the software license. You should buy a retail version of OS X Lion for your other Macbook, since the version you got with your wife's computer is only intended for that computer. The disc is paired with that machine and will only be installed on that machine. That being said, if you wanted to create a backup of a clean installation (say in case your wife's hard drive dies) you could plug a USB drive into your wife's computer and then boot up her macbook with the install disc inserted while holding C. Then, install OS X to the attached USB drive. If it's a new hard drive, you may need to run DISK UTILITY and erase it and format it as a Mac OS extended Journaled disk. Once installed, you can boot this hard drive on any mac. This is pretty handy for recovery purposes, say, if your wife's macbook gets beaned in the screen, you can pull out the hard drive and slide it into your old macbook internally or attach it via usb and then boot it. To boot from a drive other than the main one, hold OPTION while your macbook boots. But again, you shouldn't do this just to avoid paying for the operating system. No one's going to catch you, it's just unethical, I think.
  6. No. Splenda and other artificial sweeteners will dissolve into room temperature / cold water just fine. No need to make a syrup. But they give my wife headaches. And will probably give you cancer in the long run.
  7. well, this question has NOTHING to do with computers, but I'll take a crack at it: When you are adding sugar to tea / coffee / anything, you are attempting to create a SOLUTION. So, what's at issue here is the SOLUBILITY of the sugar. The solubility of sugar increases with higher temperatures. Why? I'm not really sure. But remember: heat is energy. So, when you look at a substance under a microscope, you see these little molecules. When a substance is cold, these molecules are relatively still. But when they are hot, they start jiggling around like crazy, cuz they are full of energy. So, the goal of stirring sugar into coffee is to get your sugar molecules in between the water molecules. Kind of like trying to sift flour. If you just plunk the flour into a sifter, then some of it will go thru, but not all of it. You have to shake the sifter to get the rest thru. So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, that when your water is hot, it's like it's being stirred on a microscopic level. Which is why it mixes in better. Also, this is why it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to mix sugar into ICE COLD tea. That's why to sweeten iced drinks, you should use a simple syrup (this is what they do at Starbucks). To make simple syrup, add one cup of sugar to one cup of water (or any amount, just maintain the 1 to 1 ratio) and bring to a boil. Wait for the sugar to dissolve and then let it cool. Stick it in a bottle, something like a clear ketchup bottle and stick it in the fridge. ... ... Got any tech questions?
  8. First off, iWeb sucks. The way it generates webpages is completely awful and that's why you're having trouble. Instead of creating straight-up HTML, it uses a twisted labyrinth of javascript widgets and XML files. So, essentially, the entire page is built dynamically using client-side scripts. If you ever wanted your page to show up nicely in search engines, fuggedaboutit. You're better off making your page entirely in flash. So, the navbar and the photo's page both work by pulling data from an XML file. If your page can't get this XML file, then it just fails. I think that's what's happening here. The fact that it also doesn't work on your local folder indicates to me that your file permissions are wonked up. So, try this for me first: Go to Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility. Select your hard drive and click Repair Disk Permissions. See if that helps. If it does, then that's good. Try re-uploading. If it doesn't, try changing the file permissions on your web server. You can do this through an FTP program or your web host's file manager. They are probably all set to 0644 right now. Set it to 0755. Do this for feed.xml and rss.xml (in your photos folder, I believe). If that STILL doesn't work, go to the root of your website (www or public_html) and look for a file called .htaccess Open it up in a text editor. Add these lines: <Files feed.xml> Order allow,deny Allow from all Satisfy All</Files><Files rss.xml> Order allow,deny Allow from all Satisfy All</Files> Try again. if that doesn't work, send me the url to your site and a $5 papa john's coupon and I'll fix it for you.
  9. Ideas:Sign up for Bing Rewards $10 every 3.5 months just to use Bing Check out Fiverr.com -- basically odd jobs on the web for $5. I like the ones where people do drawings for you. But you can also get paid for "social media marketing" coughspamming Write for Demand Studios - Yes, I know they are the devil--content farms and that. But if you need money, you need money. I've made thousands of dollars here (literally). I signed up a long time ago I don't know if they've gotten pickier. But some REALLY easy articles that pay $15 per (just look at some of the asinine junk on eHow). Demand Studios is stepping it up, too. You can publish tio places like Slate.com and USAToday.com and Local.com and WhiteFence.com and other "premium" sites for $18 to $25. If you can follow their sometimes arbitrary editorial guidelines and type fast, you can make at least $150 to $200 a day without breaking a sweat. Write for TextBroker - The pay here is crap. Less than $5 for some. But if you are REALLY hard up and can't get into Demand Studios, do this. Become an Amazon Affiliate - Make some REALLY good Listmania's and PROFIT. I had a stupid site about Fiestaware that got me about $25 to $50 a month in Amazon gift cards. And I never even touched the thing. If you pick something you actually care about it might be more lucrative. Sign up for Amazon Mechanical Turk --- boorrrrring mind numbing work and very low pay but if you've got nothing but time, it beats making ZERO dollars an hour. I've actually never tried this. Find security exploits in Google Chrome - OKAY, if you're smart enough to do that, you should just look for programming work on ODesk or Elance. That's all I can think of right now. Sadly, none of these are "easy money." If you can build a really well marketed and well SEO'd website, you can make a mint on CJ.com with the right niche. But it's a gamble. I recommend getting a part time job instead.
  10. barely anything. no server-side scripts, no databases, no apache stuff (url rewrites, .htaccess). Basically, just HTML, javascript, and anything client side.
  11. Interesting. I've heard of them but read bad reviews re: customer support. But if you like it, it's probably worth a shot.
  12. I just bookmark the screen I want to see. Ex.: http://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/edit.php <---edit all postshttp://www.myblog.com/wp-admin/post-new.php <---- add new post it wokrs
  13. You could always use Dropbox. Just put it in your public folder and then forward your domain to the public link. I did it with [mr-shirts.com][1] ... don't ask why i bought that domain
  14. And then there's the option to use Google Picasa. I like Picasa a lot, personally. Setup requires little more than installing it on the computer that has your photos on it. If you want to rename photos, follow the instructions in this tutorial: http://www.groovypost.com/howto/how-to/batch-renaming-picasa-add-date-resolution/ Get picasa here: http://picasa.google.com/
  15. I might also reocmmend checking out this tutorial, for getting your TIFF and JPEG images http://www.groovypost.com/howto/how-to/convert-modify-image-photo-snagit-batch-conversion-wizard/
