the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.

 

The keyboard of my Mac Mini computer... coming back to life.

So *that's* what it looks like. After updating firmware I no longer get the loading drivers screen. Damned, wish I'd taken a picture of it, I've never seen a mac do *that* before.

Wanted to try out my Mac Mini as a media-center. The iPod Touch works as remote to the system and it works just fantastic. Only need to get a better setup for the wireless network connection, that let me down a bit :)

Updates this month: I've had to replace the ageing MacBook Pro 15" with the workshop Mac Mini. Also added a small Star Wars print on the wall above the printer.

This is our home and home office server, set up in our hall closest. It's made up of Intel Mac MIni (Core Duo), stacked with two 500GB external drives (one Firewire, one USB 2) and a pair of 250GB FW drives on the left, setup as a mirrored RAID. The 250GB RAID handles all of my work-related files, while the 500GB FW is our iTunes/Apple TV media drive. The other 500GB (USB 2) is used for periodic backups of the media drive, which I run 2-3 times per week.

 

The stack on the far right is a Motorola Cable Modem, a D-Link Wireless G Gaming Router with Gigabit Ethernet, and the bottom is a D-Link Gigabit Switch.

 

This closest came with a home networking panel built in, with CAT-5 wiring running from the closest into each room of our condo (approx two jacks per room).

Non ho resistito a farmi l'iPad di carta.

E' venuto un po' male, ho potuto usare una mano sola per ritagliarlo e mi sono dovuto fare aiutare...

 

I cannot resist: I had made the paper iPad. Not so good result because of I need to cut it with only one hand, but for me it can be acceptable!

 

I've modified an old newspaper vending box to deliver the latest headlines to my living room each morning, and I don't even have to fumble around for quarters.

 

The digital newsstand is powered by a Mac Mini 1.42 GHz G4, connected to a 17" LG Flatron monitor. It runs an AppleScript that generates a slideshow of newspaper front page images using PhotoPresenter.

December 2016 - December 2016 - My 2011 MBP died, so I have replaced it with a Mac Mini from my workshop. I got the Samdi keyboard stand for Christmas

One of my New Years Resolutions from 2011 was to "Quit Cable and help as many people as possible do the same". It's been working out pretty well so far :)

 

My solution last year was to buy a Mac Mini, install the "Boxee for Mac" software for media playing/streaming and buy an Eye TV USB dongle for watching live TV. It worked pretty well and I went from paying Time Warner $170/mo (cable + internet) to $50/mo (just internet). I don't miss cable one bit and you can find just about anything you want to watch on the internet anyway. And with my EyeTV I was getting 12 live TV channels, enough for watching the Superbowl, Oscars, etc. ((You can read more about that setup here)

 

However, the biggest pain about that setup was having to switch back and forth between different apps for different things - Boxee for movies/sreaming, Eye TV for live TV. It doesn't sound like a huge pain in the ass, but having a keyboard and mouse on the coffee table is a drag (and it was confusing for my girlfriend, visiting friends / parents, etc)

 

So, behold the Boxee Box ($150), the 1.5 software upgrade and the long-awaited TV Tuner attachment, which I just spent time setting up today ($50, ships in Feb - I got an early beta from my pals at Boxee). It'a awesome because it's much simpler than the Mac Mini as I no longer have to switch between different apps to do different things. So if you've been waning to "Cut The Cord", this is the setup to go with. (I still have my Mac Mini for playing DVDs btw - no DVD player in Boxee Box)

 

My only gripe is that the setup for the Boxee's "Live TV" feature is a little wonky. In NYC, if you connect your TIme Warner coax cable to the USB dongle, you'll get about 75 channels, most of which are crap. So if you like to flip channels, you're going to be flipping thru a bunch of home shopping networks, 24/7 infomercial channels, Spanish channels, and NYC community access shows.

 

The good thing is that Boxee let's you edit these channel listings, so you can "hide" the channels you don't want and get your "guide" down from 75 channels to 15 or so. You can also change the names of the channels (so it doesn't appear as "54.115" as your flip around). Both these changes make a huge difference, so I spent some time going thru all the channels today (the pics above is of Boxee's UX for editing/hiding channels).

 

If you're in NYC and have a Boxee Box and a TV Tuner, here's a quick cheatsheet:

 

Channels I kept:

 

2.1 -- CBS 2 HD

4.1 -- NBC 4 HD

5.1 -- FOX 5 HD

7.1 -- ABC 7 HD

11.1 -- PIX 11 HD

13.1 -- PBS 13 HD

27.450 -- TBS HD

30.468 -- NY1 HD <-- surprised to get this in HD!

48.4 -- ION

48.11 -- NYCTV.LIFE <-- these NYCTV channels actually look promising

48.12 -- NYCTV.GOV

48.14 -- NYCTV.DRIVE (Times Square Cam) <-- yes, awesome

49.4 -- Fashion News Network <-- @chelsa loves it!

64.1 -- WOR My9

69.81 -- Seems to be all soccer all the time ??? (in Spanish)

111.339 -- Al Jazeera <-- awesome surprise!

 

And channels you prob won't want (but maybe this will help someone somewhere)

 

1.4 -- (plays old movies all day long?)

7.2 -- LWN / Living Well Network

11.3 -- This TV <-- this channel should be here but I couldn't get it to work

13.2 -- Kids 13

30.470 -- TV Guide Network

48.7 -- CSPAN2

48.9 -- CSPAN

48.10 -- NYCTV.WORLD <-- basically 24/7 of OTB horse racing

48.13 -- CUNY

125.1 -- MNN 1 (Manhattan News Network)

125.2 -- MNN 2

125.3 -- MNN 3

125.4 -- MNN 4

125.5 -- WLNY TV 10/55

 

So that's it. Lemme know if you find any other tricks or if I missed any channels along the way.

Day 82 - Lee's new toy. The Mac Mini with bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It even comes with a remote control! How cool is that! It is so tiny but really powerful. It was set up in all of about 10 minutes if that. Utter Madness compared to windows taking hours to set up!

SO friggin' sweet :-D

An unscientific demo of the Mac mini M1 8GB: Firestorm 6.4.13.63251 at 18 frames per second as captured, with a 100m draw distance (not evident in this clip, but a boat video-bombed one take), textures restricted to 512px, and ALM, AO, sun / moon shadows, 3.0 object LOD, 128 sky LOD, OpenGL VBOs, and static object water reflections enabled, using macOS Big Sur 11.4. Captured with QuickTime Player (with Firestorm in front to capture the full fps). Results with 11.2.3 as shipped in May were not consistent with this machine’s abilities, so be sure to do the update if you adopt an M1 mini.

 

Not bad, Apple. Even at 8 GB. It only ever gets pleasantly warm, and only sometimes, with Firestorm running all day, in a room that is now, with the arrival of summer weather, reaching an ambient temperature of 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit. The rest of the time it is no warmer than room temperature.

 

Other settings details were left out for brevity, and Firefox was also running with a few dozen tabs open, but only a fraction of those were loaded. If you were flirting with trying one of these and don’t expect a full-on gaming rig, but would like to have a decent time in Second Life regardless, it might surprise you.

Ronald McHappy Bear with the McDonald's miniatures set, freshly launched today. The miniatures are not exactly mini, about 3 to 4 inches in size. Their colors can be more vibrant i feel. Otherwise, it is really well made.

Small (Mac mini) is in, big (Power Mac G5) is out. :)

I brought my Mac Mini with me from Japan to the States and I finally got an HDMI cable to connect to a monitor. I used a Bluetooth mouse that refused to work for a long time until it changed its mind and started working mysteriously. But, it works. To celebrate, I am running Flatland in the US for the first time. Yay!

I use a Mac Mini in two setups. The rooms share a wall and there is a closet to hide all the cables. I use the Rowmote app with my iPad to control the Mac Mini.

Home Made 30" iMac ヅ FINAL with NOTES

This is my home mac mini setup.

 

My iPod, with the beltclip, fastened to my jeans.

My home office, freshly cleaned. Featuring: Custom built dual boot (Windows 7 / Ubuntu Linux) workstation with dual 22" widescreen LCD's and a 24" iMac. Not pictured is an older Mac Mini.

 

All of this is on a custom built 10 foot long desk made up of countertop from home depot supported by plywood on top of two solid wood cabinets with drawers. On the left is a bookshelf that matches the cabinets. I added new hardware to the cabinets, and put up lights into the top shelf of the bookshelf.

 

In the right corner is a four level corner shelf hung on the wall.

どうしてもThunderbolt 3は4つ欲しかったので、選択肢はMacPro、iMac Pro、Mac miniのどれか。(MacBookProは不要)

前者2つは基本スペックの時点で50万オーバーなので、さすがに現状では不必要。

 

と言うことでMac miniのSSDとEthernet以外はフルスペックで購入。写真現像で使っているMac mini Late2012も未だ快適なので2018も頑張ってもらいたい。写真と音楽を2018に統合するか悩み中。
