Anyone who gets hold of it can see where you’ve been. Here’s a tool to dump the info from your android handset and here’s one that will snoop through your backups and dump plot your travels on a map for iPhone.

These logs are much more interesting for snoops than for law enforcement. The government can compel your phone company to surrender this data for any phone given sufficient cause. The definition of “sufficient cause” varies by government, naturally.

If you’re going to clone a disk using SuperDuper, turn off spotlight for the destination volume. You don’t really want that destination volume to show up in search results anyway, and it drastically speeds up the cloning process if spotlight isn’t busy indexing things.

Due to an absurdly bad streak of luck with my equipment, a kitchen remodel, a heavy work schedule, and some other demands on my time, I’ve barely kept up with email. When I’m in that place, posting here is out of the question. The kitchen remodel has now run its course, and I’ve turned my bad IT luck around with a nice new machine. Once I’ve finished transitioning my life to this monster MBP, I will post some photos of the remodel. The transformation is drastic. If I’ve missed an email or an IM from anyone, please resend… you’ve not been ignored, just lost in the flood.

I don’t know quite what to make of this, or the fact that I found it so funny.

Amazon Rank. It’s a miserable failure.
