So I’ve toyed around with Plex in the past, but it was in a very limited and limited episode. Using a mouse-free interface was cumbersome and annoying at first. That was a quickly abandoned thought, as I couldn’t really see the implications for using it on my laptop. Since then, I’ve taken a considerably more involved attempt at using Plex, and have thoroughly enjoyed using it since! The rest of this one is a doozy for page length, so you’re going to have to click through to see the rest.

Have you ever been plagued with a bunch of these errors in your console?

2/8/10 10:51:13 PM osascript[24251] Error loading /Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Unit Types: dlopen(/Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Unit Types, 262): no suitable image found. Did find:
/Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax/Contents/MacOS/Adobe Unit Types: no matching architecture in universal wrapper

iTunes especially likes to choke these out (as my machine did), as shown here:

In order to get rid of these, it’s a relatively easy fix.

I’m really still alive. Seriously. Just killing myself in other methods1. The past two weeks have been a minor hell that will not be going away anytime soon. This next one will be a little hectic, as I won’t really have any down time.

    Stuff I need to do:

  • Get that blog post about resolutions thoughts (although I’m really a little late about that)
  • Get my head on straight and get to some productivity in the lab again (the last few days in the lab have been horrible for that)
  • Finish my blog post on Plex and using it as a home theater tool2
  • See an optometrist and get a new prescription for contacts and order new glasses
    Stuff that I already have to do this week:

  • Go hit the gun range with a friend who has been meaning to get out and fire off a few rounds
  • Do the weekly dinner thing over at The Place3
  • Having my friend from the Baltimore area up for the weekendCANCELLED (2/10/10)
  • Figure out when to go eat sushi with a couple friends

I know this should not all feel stressful, but I feel like I can’t get any quality “me” time in. But I’m not really looking for “me” time, I’m looking for quality, relaxation time with someone I can just prattle away with for a while. Someone new, hopefully; I just need something to stir up some invigoration within me and feel like I am not just stuck where I’m presently at, that I can/do meet new people.

On a more random note, what the hell?

Verizon Has Blocked Access To 4chan, But What Are They Gonna Do About It? – Verizon 4chan – Gizmodo: “Last year AT&T blocked access to 4chan for about a day, due to a DDoS attack against the site. I’d love to see how Verizon manages to avoid the inevitable shitstorm headed their way.


1Emotionally distraught and generally angry at the human population as a whole. Long story. Another blog post later if you must know.
2No. Really. I have to finish. It is sitting in my “Drafts” folder in WordPress at the moment!
3Info here or here. I swear, one of these days I’m going to throw something more substantial up for them to get the word out.
