Little League Evaluations App
Little League evaluations can generate some of the most paperwork of the season. 聽If you live in the Northwest, there is also the very real danger of scheduling an evaluations date a couple months in advance and it turns out to be raining all day.
Even under a canopy, ink runs, paper gets wet and sometimes falls to the ground.
You get home and then someone or a group needs to enter all the evaluations data into a spreadsheet.
With the help of Paul Grimes, I developed a web app which you can find over on GitHub.
The app currently deals with Registration, Fielding, Hitting, Pitching and Baserunning.
Redwest Evals App
At Registration we assign a bib number to each player and take a picture. 聽At each station the volunteer enters the bib number and an optimized picture is displayed to confirm the right child is being evaluated.
For fielding we record聽successful catches of ground balls, fly balls, throwing and general baseball IQ.
The Hitting station records聽number of contacts, power and mechanics.
Pitching records top velocity as measured by a radar gun, accuracy (number of strikes) and mechanics.
Baserunning records the time to run from first to third.
Normally the data entry took a couple days. 聽Now聽I can do exports as soon as I get home and we can start to analyze data.
Redmond West has now used this for baseball and softball evaluations with much success.
If you are interested in deploying the app for your own Little League evals, let me know in the comments and I #8217;ll get back to you.

Seattle #8217;s Mercer Mess #8211; and How to Fix It
Those that live in Seattle know that Mercer street has sucked for 40 years.
Over the past couple years, there has been an extensive effort to make Mercer better #8211; and the street and surroundings have improved markedly #8230; but #8230;
Rush hour traffic, especially east-bound evening traffic, continues to suck and is actually considerably worse than ever. 聽This is not entirely the fault of the new design of Mercer. 聽This one lies entirely on humans, the traffic control officers employed by Amazon around the side streets of Mercer.

Airport Utility 6.1 Supports IPv6 Configuration
12.Jun.12GeneralApple, IPv6Garth Gillespie
The recent 6.1 update to Airport Utility now lets you edit the IPv6 configuration of your various Apple Airport devices. 聽The new 1.1 version for IOS also supports editing IPv6.
In the Tunnel section there is a new field called #8216;IPv6 Delegated Prefix #8217;.
If you are using Hurricane Electric #8217;s Tunnelbroker for IPv6 #8211; you can enter your #8216;Routed /64 #8217; address there in its entirety.
Not exactly sure what functionality this adds to the Airport device however. 聽Everything on the home network functions as it did before.
[Update 3.13.2013] #8211; Apple has posted a support page with official instructions on how to configure Manual IPv6 Tunnels in Airport Utility.
My Son = Published Author
It really is a brave new world in self-publishing.
My son created a fantastic (my determination, natch) paper book, and within a few hours I was able to use iBooks Author to create a version of the book for iBooks. 聽It was approved a couple days later.
It #8217;s free from iTunes.

Yes, screen guardz hd really do help the iPad in the sun
We only got one of the screen guardz for the trip to Mexico and now I wish we got two!
They really do help. With my polarized sunglasses I can #8217;t see anything on the iPad without the plastic cover, but I can comfortably read from the kindle app with the other.
WordPress Dev Branch Bit Me
Sorry for the lack of posts for half the day #8211; I was running the WordPress dev branch and the update this morning apparently couldn #8217;t find the posts anymore.
I have reverted to something more stable.
iTunes Error -50 preventing sync
Just had this error today with an iPhone 4 and the apple support document is not very useful.
From Googling, it seemed that many people used to blame this on corrupt photos in iPhoto #8211; but tracking those down can be painful.
In my case I think it was a partial sync that happened when I drove away from the house in my car. I plugged in my iPhone in the car while in the garage, and it connected to my WiFi and started to sync #8211; I was late so I drove away as it was trying to sync and then gave up. I think this made the iPhone very happy.
I was prepared to go down the route of doing a complete restore but I decided to try the semi-obvious first.
I rebooted the computer running iTunes, I shut down all the running apps on the iPhone and then rebooted the iPhone #8211; and then it did a backup and then did a sync.
All is well. Hope this helps someone.
HP Photosmart Premium #8211; Worst F***ing Printer Ever
Not much else to say. Worst purchase I have made in a long time. Constantly crashes. Takes forever to print. Makes all kind of noise before and after printing. Constant scanning issues.
Total POS and my last HP printer.
Canon #8211; I #8217;ll be looking to you.
