iOS 7 will not power on
I've been testing an app for Roswell Park in iOS 7 and as such I've had a few issues. It's a beta....it's to be expected.
The worst of it has been that sometimes the device will shut down and just not come on... When this happens my only option had been to wait for the bad process to wear the battery down until it could restart from scratch.
Holding the home key and pressing the power button for an extended period seemed to work twice in a row for me. The apple logo will appear and you'll be back up and running in no time. I saw a cute at the apple store do it to my phone, but didn't pay enough attention at first to recall. So there was a bit of trial and error, but there you have it.
As you might have guessed having this beta on my phone as caused quite a bit of havoc in my overly social life. (Power management on the first beta was non existent). For reasons similar to that I suggest only using it in the emulator until the very last mile of development.
I couldn't find anything about doing that on any forums anywhere so I guess it's necessary to post it someplace, why not in my (e:strip) blog. If you have to use this OS to test things and you only have one device you're just going to have to live with using it everyday, something that I understand and inordinate # of people have been willing to do before it's ready, so I guess this post will have some kind of audience.
Ok... happy nerding.

Fixing my Buzzy Wii
I'm trying to not complain in public anymore. Espousing my woes hasn't ever really proven useful in any way other than to cause more woes, so I'm going for broadcasting solutions.
I got my Wii right when they came out cause I was up partying too late with Mitch and we knew they might have them at Target if we went. The line was short. I interviewed a few nerds about it and hopped in line my self. A few hours later I was the proud owner of a brand new 1st generation Wii.
We had a ton of fun with our Wiis since then but also since then it's started to make this horrible buzzing noise that makes me wanna smack a moose.
Apparently this is common amungst old Wiis. So much so that Nintendo isn't doing anything about them though they usually hook it up when your gear is broken.
So to find a solution I have turned to the interwebs. Here's a couple of short videos on how to disassemble the Wii and resolve the buzzing issue. If you have a mod chip lying around you can kill a few birds with one stone. I don't have a tiny lil screw driver yet, but I will grab one soon so I can get inside this thing. It's eyeglasses sized so I figure they're around to buy I just don't know where... lemme know if you know.
I digress. On to fixing this sic Wii.
Opening the Wii. Be careful. Bring a razorblade and a tiny screwdriver
Buzz Kill: Fixing the Wii. Turn one Screw, fixed!
I figured this is time well spent since (e:Terry) and TK are Smash Bros. aficionados and might be able to teach me some moves until these computer parts become a computer. #escapingStreetFighter.

I couldn't fall asleep last night so I watched a few episodes of Elfin Lied on netflix. Now I feel like a zombie. I'm downing B vitamins, drinking coffee, answering emails and writing this post till the caffeine kicks in and I can function like a human again.
Elfen has just gotten hilariously good after 8 episodes, but its at the point where I don't know where it's going to go next.
Seems that always happens to Anime...sigh. This one hooked me because of the Gustav Klimt intro. It's kinda vapid and bizzare, but isn't all good anime?
Here's the intro I was talking about. It has some "tastefully" bare cartoon boobs in it so be careful it may be NFW for you.
