Google just enabled push email today for the iphone and it's pretty cool. Unfortunately it does not appear to honor the default sender address setting which is useful if you receive to multiple addresses but want to send from a specific one. A search shows other people are encountering this so I thought I'd post a workaround I found: I left the imap account active but went in and turned off its fetch schedule and made sure everything about it was set to manual, etc. I only interact with the imap account, the push one exits only to receive the new mail notifications. It's pretty smooth, although if you leave unread messages when exiting mail, the mail badge will be twice the actual number. It also has the benefit that the imap version actually deletes deleted emails while the sync version moves them into "All Mail"
I have a mac mini as a media player connected via HDMI to my tv. I recently added a cool auto-detecting HDMI switch to the works and everything seemed great, except I'd get no video when switching from one of the other inputs to the mac. If I slept and woke the mac, video would appear, but that was a lame option.
I haven't updated my 1000klub website with new content in just about 10 years. I've wanted to put various things up over the years it was always too much of a hassle to dust of my ancient html skills and edit the site. So now I'm going to try using the blogger interface to allow for faster and easier updating. Hopefully that will inspire me to make better use of my site.
