Dear Aunt TUAW: Help my windows stay put {}

May 5th 2011 8:55PM I totally agree with SkwidSpawn. It may be steep for what it does, but it is well worth it. It saves me probably a good 30 minutes each day of just time that I would otherwise be spending re-organizing and re-sizing my windows.

Granted, not many people typically use a mac laptop with an external display with frequent switching. When at the office I have a 30" display and my 15" macbook. I disconnect from the monitor frequently for meetings and to get away from my desk. At home, normally I use the macbook by itself. Occasionally hooking it up to a 22".

One of the great things about Stay is that it distinguishes all of these. It keeps track of monitor size and arrangement, so I can have a MacBook + 22" setup, and a Macbook + 30" setup that are different from each other.

Dear Aunt TUAW: Help my windows stay put {}

May 5th 2011 7:37PM I LOVE stay. It is a lifesaver when I use a macbook + 30" display at work and often switch to just my laptop for meetings and to go home.

Chinks Peak in Idaho gets a name change in time for Chinese New Year {Gadling}

Jan 26th 2009 6:03PM Squaw Peak in Phoenix Arizona, and the Squaw Peak Parkway have been renamed to "Piestewa Peak". The change was done due to the negative meaning of "Squaw".

Speed cameras and red light cameras: Good or bad? {Gadling}

Jan 17th 2009 10:45PM Living in Phoenix, I deal with these cameras every day during my commute. Most of them are on the major highways into downtown. Only a few are on their way out of downtown. My 26 mile commute into downtown for work takes me past 7 of these cameras. There is ample warning 1/2 mile and 300 feet before these. The speed limit in this area was recently increased to 65. Prior it had been 65 in some sections and 55 in others. The limit to snap a picture is 11 mph over the limit.

The argument is true though. Even if people aren't speeding, they still slam on their brakes, hide their face by looking away or covering it (Arizona law dictates that the driver AND vehicle must be identified).

I have personally noticed the speeds of vehicles decrease over the past few months since these cameras were installed and brought online. I do think they are a good idea. It is also important for people to get used to them. I read a study for Scottsdale which indicated that during the trial along the freeway there, the number of speed related incidents decreased, but the number of accidents stayed about the same, due to the things I mentioned before.

It will be really interesting to see how this plays out after all 100 devices are installed (only about 30 are now) by the end of the year and people are used to them.

Scourge Invasion: Balzaphon {WoW}

Oct 27th 2008 3:10PM Class specific damage hasn't been removed. I have a cloak that is "Holy spell power" only. Drape of the Righteous.

Skill Mastery: Zombie Explosion! {WoW}

Oct 26th 2008 9:15AM I've been doing this by standing in the middle of all the battle masters in IF, then bubbling when I'm ready, turning me, and then blowing up and infecting them all.

Quite fun.

Phat Loot Phriday: Goblin Rocket Launcher {WoW}

Oct 25th 2008 3:33AM I use mine in with my Arena team all the time. We'd often hold off killing the last oponnent so I could get a "Bubble Rocket Kill" off of it. Bubble, Shoot, and end the match.

Great fun.

The stun associated with the rocket also counts as an interrupt. The long cast can cause issues with that, but I've had it work many times to hit a mob that was about to cast or whatnot.

My friends always laugh when they see me pull it out.

Enter to celebrate patch 3.0.2 with a Paper Airplane from WoW Insider {WoW}

Oct 14th 2008 12:34PM I'll renew my account. :)

Phat Loot Phriday: The Booterang {WoW}

Sep 5th 2008 7:54PM One of my favorite things to do when I was doing those quests was to get the booterangs following me, then hearth to Shatt. They'd follow you all the way there.

Breakfast Topic: Buggy memories {WoW}

Aug 11th 2008 11:21AM Running a low level friend through Ramparts, we were killing Vazruden and Nazan so quickly that it didn't count. We'd kill Vazruden before Nazan would land, thus forcing the entire encounter to start over again.
