Upgrading E71 Firmware

Updating firmware on the Nokia E71 can be done from Windows only. This is silly, Nokia already provides everything else for the Mac OSX; The Photos are managed by iPhoto, the music via iTunes, contacts via Address Book, Calendaring via iCal. All of these happen via the Nokia PC Suite and iSync.

So why cant Nokia provide a tool to update the firmware via Mac OSX???

Sony Xplod XM-4060GTX Amp

Amith has passed down his old Sony XM-4060GTX 60 watts RMS x 4 channel car amplifier to me today. As per new plan, the 4060 will power my Focal Audio Access Components in the front and the rear Focal Audio Coax. The existing Pioneer will bridged to power the JL Audio 8W3v3.

My worry is who do I get the changes done from!!! The original installation was done by the awesome guys at PFM. Deepak has long since closed shop and I dont trust the usual auto shops to do a decent job with the installation (or caliberation).

WordPress + Livejournal Crosspost

I want to continue to update my two Livejournal accounts – http://shankerbalan.livejournal.com and http://purple_dude.livejournal.com. Among the plugins I looked at, Journalpress worked best. It supported multiple accounts and was simple enough to use.

The other plugins which I tried are LJ-XP and Livepress. Livepress supports multiple accounts and has a whole bunch of settings which looked very useful to have but refused to work for me with WordPress 2.7.

LJ-XP on the other hand worked very well but supported only one Livejournal account.

The last plugin to try on my list was Journalpress. Journalpress was easy to configure and just worked with both my accounts. It is based on LJ-XP.
