You can now get @OnStar on the after market with a replacement rearview window. I'll have info & a review of that in the near future.
Do you mean rearview mirror? - Skyler Call

Selling a used car should not be this difficult.
I have used AutoTrader in the past and been happy with the results. - Skyler Call
You still ain't sold that car? Dang. - Derrick
I thought there was a huge used car shortage. More BS I guess. - Todd Hoff
I used Craigslist and got one gone in less than a week. What are you selling and why are you asking too much? :) - SAM
The Buggy Bank is said to be good, but may be too far from you? - Ruchira S. Datta
Scott, selling my 1999 Accord EX - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Total used car junkie here -- I'm surprised the car hasn't sold. Popular model, pretty reasonably priced, service records is a big plus. Here in the Bay Area they get snapped up quickly: Are you not getting enough contact or just inundated with low-balling used car dealers? - Richard Chen
Not getting hardly any contacts. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Yeah, I've used Carmax in the past as well. Easy-peasy. - Rahsheen
Sadly, there's no Carmax stores in Oregon. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
eBay? You might find someone come out from a low-volume market like, say, Boise. - Richard Chen
ROFL, Davis...what's annoying is that I'm getting fewer nibbles at $4500 than I was at $5000 - Scoble, Alex Scoble from YouFeed
Try 4997 or something :) - Rahsheen
One dollar, Bob. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy

Hello America. Spotify here. -
Do you have any invitations to hand out? - Skyler Call
Louis put an invite on G+ - Steve and 4 other people
Steve, I am a Google Apps user and do not yet have access to Google Plus. - Skyler Call
I got my email invitation this morning. - Skyler Call

My four year old daughter received a dresser from her grandparents. We are cleaning out the old one for her little brother. When she got a peek into the top drawer of the old dresser she asked, "why are you keeping all my garbage in here"? My wife had been stuffing the drawer with drawings and such from our daughter.
Who else has a top drawer full of junk you think you will need later but never do? - Skyler Call from Android
I have several of them. And some boxes for the same purpose, as well. - Mark Christiansen

iPhone 4 SLR Mount lets you shoot 5-megapixel photos with your $3,000 lens -- Engadget
From the Redonculous Department of Idiocy. - Brian Sullivan from Bookmarklet
April fools? - Shannon - GlassMistress
I think it's cool, just not $250 cool. - Rodfather
Think of it this way, wouldn't you like Instagram, 360 Panorama, iMovie, and a 3G connection on your DSLR? You can make a quick and dirty movie and share it right away. - Rodfather
I have a friend who would actually really dig this. (He's a professional photographer too.) He just wouldn't be interested in it for that price point. - SAM
If someone really needs to carry a $3000 lens around, why wouldn't he just carry a camera as well? It looks good but of no use. - Faraz Mullick
I don't think a person would be limited to using it with $3000 lens, what Rodfather said is a good use case, and some people appreciate the novelty. Of no use to you would be reasonable. - SAM
Hooking up a SLR lens to an iPhone and calling it a DSLR is a bit like sticking a prancing horse logo on a Fiat 500 and calling it a Ferrari. - Brian Sullivan
Who called it a DSLR? It's a lens mount. - Rodfather
Other than the price, what is the actual objection to this product? - Bren from iPhone
Rodfather- I thought that was implicit in your earlier comment. - Brian Sullivan
No, you're tripping. I wouldn't mind having an OS in a DLSR. - Rodfather
As the owner of a 6MP DSLR, I don't really see what's ridiculous about 5MP pictures through a good lens. - Bruce Lewis
Rodfather -- so your comment earlier has nothing to do with this product -- you were just daydreaming about a product that you wish existed? - Brian Sullivan
It says exactly what it says. Why such much hate? There's even a group that makes movies on the iPhone only. For them, it would be a cool addition. You can use lenses you have sitting around and make a movie with different lenses. What's so horrible about that? - Rodfather
Bruce -- adding a big lens to a 5MP iPhone does not turn it into the equivalent of a 5MP DSLR -- not even close. Size in MP matters a lot less than size of sensor -- and iPhone's sensor is very small. - Brian Sullivan
Rodfather - no hate implied -- at least not to you. I just think the product is ridiculous. - Brian Sullivan
No answer to my question? Okay. - Bren from iPhone
Bren - to me seems to a solution looking for a problem -- it is technology for technology's sake -- -- just because it is possible to do something it doesn't always make sense to make and try to sell a product that does it. - Brian Sullivan
I think Rod has already made a compelling argument against that, Brian. Maybe it's just me, but your vitriol for this product seems disproportionate to your stated complaint about the product. As I understand it, the only problem (aside from price) is that *you* don't have a use for it. - Bren from iPhone
I see it as just a lens mount. That's it. On a side note, this reminds me when people started making adapters for consumer video cameras to mount 35mm lenses. This was huge. Only around 4 years ago too. That was the first time people could use interchangeable lenses on a relatively cheap video camera. It opened up so much more possibilities for students and indie filmmakers. Now that... more... - Rodfather
Bren - not sure it was intended as vitrol or should be characterized as such, I don't know how else I can assess and present a point of view except as well .. my point of view. I definitely have no use for this product (or for an iPhone for that matter) - Brian Sullivan
"ridiculous department of idiocy" struck me as fairly vitriolic for a product that is, in reality, simply not useful to you. Again, maybe that's just me. - Bren from iPhone
Yeah, this Google + thing is fun, but if there's no poking, I'm not sure I can commit.
Thank goodness. - Skyler Call

With Nagios Core, can I change the host_name value without losing that host's history?
Well, the new host name means a new rebirth, so no history for the new item. Anyway, you never loose history since it is contained in Nagios logs, so... - ↂGiorgiँ Zarrelliↂ
Is there a way to copy the history from the old hostname to the new hostname? - Skyler Call
Will renaming the hostname in all the .log files in /usr/local/nagios/var/archives/ work? - Skyler Call
Never tried it but I think using "sed" would work - ↂGiorgiँ Zarrelliↂ
As you can see from the manual: File Name: avail.cgi Description: This CGI is used to report on the availability of hosts and services over a user-specified period of time. In order for this CGI to be of much use, you should enable log rotation and keep archived logs in the path specified by the log_archive_path directive. - ↂGiorgiँ Zarrelliↂ
This means that the cgi used for reporting are actually using online archived logs, so, something like sed -i 's/old_host/new_host/g' logfile.log should suffice. - ↂGiorgiँ Zarrelliↂ
That worked. Thank you. - Skyler Call

Some people just don't do text messaging: I did not know that--now I do.
I don't understand why. - Scoble, Alex Scoble from YouFeed
Only in the past couple of years have I started using text messages semi-regularly. For some, an epiphany may await. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
That would make for an unfortunate epiphany. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
text messages are great for quick important info that you can get without having to read your email or answer your phone. "Running late for the gig; tell the sound guy xyz..." etc. Otherwise gets annoying. - Neil Alexander
I still send them from time to time to my luddite friends and when I'm abroad. - Eivind
One of my friends turned off her texting. It's annoying - Shevonne
This person has never sent or received a text. I also don't turn on my cell phone until I need to make a call. I don't seem to have missed a thing. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My rule is this: If you have a question in need of answering, call me. If you just want to pass on some information that I can get anytime today when I have time, SMS is fine. - Skyler Call
At one point, SMS got so out of hand with my family and friends that I turned off the sound that plays when one was received. Later I would get frantic phone calls about not answering their messages promptly. - Skyler Call
Unfortunately, the people I work for now use SMS to communicate with me throughout the day. I am still trying to convert them to Google Talk. Google Talk is free to use, plus I can respond from my desktop keyboard which is tons faster and easier. - Skyler Call

Random thought: Can you believe we still use a 3½ in. floppy disk for a save icon? :)
I am having a hard time coming up with a better image to use though. - Skyler Call
We still use a right pointing arrow for play despite the majority of media not spooling tape. Icons transcend - Johnny from iPhone
What Skyler said. I think as things become more abstract, there really are no better ways to communicate them in a simple icon. Even if todays kids have no idea what a floppy is, that icon is familiar.....what Johnny said. LOL. - Rahsheen
Hell, the icon for Compose is usually paper and pen of some kind, isn't it? :) - Rahsheen
Maybe a cloud? - iTad from iPhone
Many cellphones still use the landline handset as an icon for "call". - Spidra Webster
Actually, why even have a Save function. Modern software saves as you go... Even more so in the direction apple is going... - iTad from iPhone
We also still use the paper clip to signify 'attachment'. - Skyler Call
And scissors for cut and glue for paste. - iTad

Apple's OS X is not for people, like me, who demand logic and order.
Maximizing a window should be easy and precise. In Windows 7 there are at least three ways to do this. I cannot find one in OS X. - Skyler Call
Clicking + does not cause the window to fill the entire screen. It only makes it get larger, depending on what larger size you previously dragged the corners out to. There is no button that makes hit fill the entire area that I can find. - Skyler Call
