Shirt Folding

I like for my shirts to be folded in a particular way. I may just have to change it to this way. Brought to my attention by niffie.

The more I think about it, the more I think the Japanese must be planning to create an entire race that has expert knowledge of topology. Like the pencils.

Print to File

So there's this "Print to File" checkbox on the print dialog. You play around with it and send your print job to a file. That's cool. Theoretically, you can send this file to the printer without having to open the application. That means you can possibly save time when you need to print something, and you can send the printed result of an application to a person who doesn't own that application (assuming they do own a printer that uses the same sort of driver as yours). But how in the heck do you actually print the output file?!?!

Dragging and dropping the file into the printer's status window doesn't do anything. Right-clicking on the file doesn't give you any option that says "Print" or "Send To -> Printer". Looking around on Google gives you a bunch of places that say to use "print " or "copy /b /b". These didn't work for me. The fact that I use a network printer might have something to do with it, but I'd like to think that those people are pure evil. I found the proper syntax here.

copy \\where\your\printer\is\_\not\the\damn\port

And the binary flag seems useless.

GameCube Mod

From kuoj, a site that suggests how to mod the GC to play both Japanese and US games without having to remove the heatsink.

Audible

Had a little issue with getting Audible to work on my new work laptop. Went through their Live Chat customer service, and they fixed my problem right there, right then. Went from not being able to listen to being able to listen in about 2 seconds. Awesome! That's a good system (both the software and the customer service setup together).
