A huge thanks to Jim Ray for sharing this tip. This is so useful to me that I felt compelled to share it.

The iPhone will store and dial extensions to phone numbers in a couple of different ways, depending on how you decide to interact with the answering system on the other end.
In short, you can have a number for a contact in your iPhone’s address book to also store their extension or conference call ID/password/whatever. When you place the call, a new button is present on your phone’s UI which will dial the stored code.
The House of Cards “House of Nerds” video spoof for the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner.
As to what it will look like? Neither of the following two photos are of our house, or our exact house’s future look OR the colors we picked, but it should give you a general idea.
The first photo shows the garage configuration, with the doors facing the road. The problems with this photo is that is lacks the rock base around the home and porch, and the garage has a side extension, which we aren’t getting.
This second photo gives you an example of the rock base around the home & porch, but keep in mind it has the dormers on the roof and the garage is facing the wrong way – both of which we aren’t getting.

Adria didn’t win. I’m not sure she’s employable as a Dev Evangelist, which has been her role. Those who know her in the way I do believe she’ll use this as a platform, but I hope instead she learns from it. This wasn’t about feminism, and she shouldn’t be allowed to sit her perch on the issue. This was about the way humans relate to each other. Either way, the past 24 hours must have been terrifying for her and for that, I’m sad.
Having mostly ignored this story for a few days, I just caught up on it today. After reading Amanda Blum’s post on the subject, I find myself in 100% agreement with her.

First, we intend to bring sync to future versions of NetNewsWire. It’s too soon to go into details about this, but you should know that we recognize how extremely important it is and that it is a top priority for us.
Second, even though we’ve been quiet about it, we have been working on new versions of NetNewsWire for Mac, iPhone, and iPad. We have some great new features and a modern design that we can’t wait to show you.
As far as sync is concerned, we knew we would likely need an alternative to Google Reader as early as last year.
About 7 years ago I did a LOT of research to figure out how to build a 100% Lucas-spec Darth Vader costume. At the time, cost was around $2000. I told myself once I got more disposable income, a house, the necessary power tools I would achieve my goal.

This is a story, of course, that those decent and wise stewards generally want told—even if it requires the publications of the odd embarrassing “insider” detail—which is why Woodward has been able to waltz in and out of every administration since Carter with impunity. The trade-off—access in exchange for an implicit pledge to judge his subjects by the polite rules of Washington—has essentially defined Woodward’s journalism. Even when it came to Nixon, his bete noir, Woodward was willing to bow to his head and submit a list of pre-screened questions in exchange for an interview (it never happened).
But the spell has broken. The Obama White House has, it appears, been as receptive to Woodward’s bargain as its predecessors were, but for some reason he’s gone off the grid and begun firing wildly and without provocation. Who knows why. The changes to our politics over the last five years have obviously been hard on him. It’s more difficult to tell stories about good men working out their honest differences when one half of the equation has foresworn compromise and committed itself to total political warfare. The comfortable subroutines of his brain have gone haywire, and he’s kicking out garbage.
But the simplest explanation for this episode is that he wants people to buy his book about how the president is an effete asshole who’s in over his head. How would one go about marketing a book like that, I wonder? During the entirety of the Bush Administration, Woodward made 11 appearances on Fox News Channel. Last year, he showed up 10 times. This year, he’s been on three times so far. Guess where he’s going to be tonight.
This just in, Bob Woodward is a hack (and this isn’t news if you’d been paying attention for the past 13 years). The general consensus amongst the White House Press Corps seems to be in agreement.
