As talked about in length in a past post, I got a Nikon D40 about a month ago. Since then, I’ve been quite the photog, jumping at every chance I get to go out and take photos. For those looking for a D40 that want sample photos, or those just interested in seeing my progress these past four weeks, here is my best of for photos I’ve uploaded to my Flickr photo sharing account since I’ve had the rockin’ camera.
Quite a bug indeed — it won’t show any of my album art!
I’ve restarted iTunes several time, but to no avail. Perhaps a reboot is in order.
Anyone else had this happen to them? If so, how did you fix it?
Update: Looks like a reboot did the trick — problem resolved. Some other programs were acting kind of wonky, crashing when opened, but it seems as though the reboot fixed this, too. Strange while it lasted.
It’s been a wild past few days since unbeknown to me, an article I’d written was submitted by someone to the social news site Digg a day and a half ago.
My initial reaction was disbelief, as never before had I even dreamt of an article I’d written getting on one of my favorite sites (no less, one with over one million registered users and many more unregistered). Then came the excitement as slowly but surely more and more people dugg the article, which, for the record, I don’t even think is that amazing an article. I suppose the fact that the trailing question mark was excluded from the title, “New Google Search Feature?” may have excited people — all it was, in fact, was an error when you searched for the term “review:” on Google and I predicted from there (Digg users sure do love rumors and predictions!). Either way, after about four hours, the article hit the home page, though was quickly buried (modded down and removed from the home page by users) when Google remedied the issue and the bug I encountered couldn’t be replicated. But hey, even though I only got 70 diggs, it was really fun while it lasted; I’ll let these stats speak for themselves:
I think I've stumbled upon a little yet-to-be-released Google search feature: "review:". Similar to "define:" to look up definitions, I predict this will work in conjunction with the recently re-branded Google Products (formerly Froogle) to let you quickly access Google Products' functionality directly from the main search.
The reason this is plausible is due to the fact that as of about 10:15 PM EDT, any Google search that starts with review: returns a persistent "502 Server Error" (example). Perhaps this means Google's about ready to release this. Either that, or I've unintentionally disturbed some delicate balance holding together the very internet as we know it!
