WASHINGTON, DC—A confused President Bush broke free from the restraint of Secret Service agents this morning and ran in pursuit of departing deputy chief of staff Karl Rove’s car for several blocks down Pennsylvania Avenue before being outdistanced by the vehicle.

Want to install SSH, native IM, IRC, even Apache on your iPhone? Check out from Nullriver. Yep, the same folks that brought you WinAmp and dreamed up the Gnutella network. [That’s Nullsoft, duh…]

As usual, proceed at your own risk…

In a Kimpton hotel in the Boston area. A friend who works for the boutique chain in SF (where Kimpton’s based) wasn’t able to get me a cheaper rate or an upgraded room, but he knew how to make it all better:

Thanks Mason!

Up next: will I care about the rate post-Shiraz?

Also, had a most-excellent dinner at The Helmand tonight, an Afghani restaurant owned by none-other than the brother of Hamid Karzi, current PM of Afghanistan and former Unocal consultant (ahem). Turns out there’s a San Francisco location as well at 430 Broadway. Who knew. The two of us shared a variety of 3 sumptuous (really) entrees and a bottle of wine for $84. Very pleased.

Not Measuring Up: My iPhone Bill

Posted by: on Aug 15, 2007 | No Comments

I think my frequent access to Wi-Fi is screwing me of the opportunity to make my own video revealing a over 300 page bill from AT&T. (Methinks a lot of you would probably have no problem at all helping that poor girl with her bill.)

I’d given up paper billing for starters, but even the PDF version from the AT&T site came in at 178 pages. Every 15 minutes my iPhone checks email and uses EDGE? A new entry on the bill. All cost me $0.00. Fucking brilliant.

Even given the first 30 hours numbers and averaging $1 extra per mailing of the physical giaganto-bill (paper, postage, and packaging — it requires a BOX not an envelope for most), that’s $217k they wasted.

Given AT&Ts religious need to felate the Street, I’d be watching for that FCKUIPHONE “tax” to show up on your next bill.

Look, I realize the building’s ugly, and I’d love nothing more than for it to be razed to the ground, but I do live one door down and I could do without the frequent scares. First there was 5 months ago where an apartment burnt out of the building, 2 days later there was a flare-up, and then again tonight? Sheesh. The frequent false alarms probably don’t help either.

Most of the fireworks seemed to be over by the time I got home, anyone got the skinny on what exactly burned? I’m guessing something considering the wet street.

Parked a couple of doors down:

Maybe new to the neighborhood or just stopping by?

Don’t think I’ll be attending any house warming parties in the near future.
