For some reason my iDisk has failed to sync for a while; I finally got around to checking into it, and looking at ~/Library/Logs in Console showed:Agent/mirrordb.c,186 err -50 (getwhatwas).A Google search revealed nothing about this.
After some investigation, it seems that something had gotten out of sync somehow, and deleting ~/Library/Mirrors clears it up. It also means that the local copy of the iDisk has to be updated, which takes approximately forever on a fat pipe.
When deleting ~/Library/Mirrors, note that there’s a .dmg file in there that holds the contents of your iDisk. If you just move it to the trash, but don’t delete it, the Sync Agent will still find it and use it, so it has to be deleted before the rebuild.
Music: “American Way” by The Crystal Method
Posted Friday, 19 December, 2003 by Nic Lindh
Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
