My Pre can beat up your Pre!

So, after I managed to get the WebOS 1.4 update to take on my phone, my Pre suddenly had the amazing ability to record and edit video. SWEEET! Although I still haven't really used it other than to test it – it seems like it was well implemented.

Last night, however, I decided to kick things up a notch. I have a touchstone charger, which charges my phone wirelessly, so the only time I need to plug in a cable is to transfer files (music) to/from my laptop. I don't like cables, and I don't like the stupid connector on the Pre… so… I set up OpenSSH on the darn thing, which allows me to connect over WiFi and get to my phone's command line AND drag and drop files to it via WiFi! That's right! I can now load/unload this thing with music without having to plug it into anything.

My Pre will never again be violated by cables!

Internet Access In 2008

… will apparently be more frustrating.

Those of you that know me may know that I don't like to pay for stuff.. hell, I'd probably steal my apartment if I could figure out some way to do it. No, I take that back – real theft, stuff that involves a loss of property or material from someone else, I don't support that. Bits and radio waves though, I "gray-area" that in my mind to the extent that I numb my morals til they're non-existent.

I spent a good 20 minutes running around with my router in an attempt to get any sort of usable (unprotected) signal – from anywhere. Found one.

I'm going to over-analyze this event and look at it as a sign of things to come. Like I said before, I feel like 2008 is my year, and I'm going to come out ahead of the game before 2009 rolls in.. but that doesn't mean it's going to be an easy ride. I'm used to easy rides, sliding along, drifting through – 2008 is going to be the year where I'm forced to put effort into my life. Yay? Yay.

I took the day off, so hopefully I'll be sleeping when this post goes live. Just thinking about tomorrow is making me tired. 🙂

I dreamt of rhinoceroses.
