iPad killer project is underway!

I went ahead and placed my order today for a lenovo s10-3t today from amazon. They say it is in stock, and i'm looking forward to playing with it. My intention (for scientific purposes only! haha) is to set it up as a dual boot with the windows 7 starter that comes installed on it, and mac osx.I'm pretty excited to try this thing out. It is pretty much all I hoped the iPad would be, and then some. Its a tablet. Its a netbook. It has plenty of storage. It runs flash. It has a proper sized keyboard with the correct layout. All good things, some of which my old dell mini was not.

It seems the cpu and graphic chipset on the lenovo s10-3 is different from the s10 and s10-2. The new s10-3 uses the intel GMA 3150 chipset (its a pine trail n450 processor) which presents potential issues with running mac osx. I've read some mixed results that an old intel GMA 900 driver may work.

Anyway, when it shows up, I'll do some more posts and document the process. Win7 or Mac OSX, this little notebook looks to be pretty awesome...

Installing python 3.4.x on OSX El Capitan

I love "brew" package manager, but sometimes being too progressive breaks things.  I have several python apps that I maintain that get deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk.  AWS eb can deploy with python 2.7 or 3.4.  Any recent 'brew install python3" will get 3.5.1. #annoying

Making Macbook Air with 128GB SSD usable with Bootcamp

I recently got a new Macbook Air 11" (the 2012 version) and loaded it with goodies like 8GB ram and 2GHz Core i7.  What I DIDN'T upgrade was the internal SSD.  My config came with 128GB SSD and I refused to pay $300+ to upgrade it to 256GB.  Yeah I know, some call me cheap, but SSds cost $75-$150 for 240GB, so adding another 128GB for $300 seemed way too steep for me.  I figured "ok, I'm going to make 128G work!"

Here is the story of how that went...

Election day plus 1: Social Media Nightmare

It is election day plus 1, and a very emotional day with no way to win for many.

Social media was a force to be reckoned with this election year.  No matter what position you take, the world is ready to pounce on you and tell you why YOU are evil, intolerant or a deplorable -- and the reason for all their woes.  This isn't a new problem, though...  All of the liberal vs conservative issues are causing rifts between otherwise civil people, and it seems to be the worst on Facebook and twitter.

If I say I am for Hillary:
i am part of the "corrupt system."

If I say I am against Hillary:
I am stupid and uneducated

If I say I am for Trump:
I am against women,
I am religiously intolerant,
I am a bigot

If I say I am against Trump:
I am against the 2nd amendment,
I don't have any idea how government works,
I am part of the problem with American society,
I am against the police

Stay with me now, this isn't meant to make people angry, but it is mean to shine some light on a social …
