Payleven mobiele pin-reader

Sinds kort is er een prachtig mobiel pin-apparaat op de markt dat via bluetooth met je iPhone werkt: Payleven.
Op je iPhone draait de transactie-software terwijl het pin-apparaat uitsluitend de software heeft om de kaart te lezen, PIN te verifiëren en de toetsenbord-input naar de iPhone door te sturen.

payleven

Werkt prima!

Wel zorgen dat:
  • het apparaat is opgeladen,
  • je iPhone is opgeladen,
  • je een opgeladen accu meeneemt voor je iPhone,
  • er een internet-verbinding is (WiFi/WLAN of 3G/4G; GPRS gaat nog wel, is alleen heel erg traag).

Put your Calibre eBooks on iPhone via CrashPlan from wherever you are

When you're traveling and want to read that specific eBook which you forgot to put on your iPhone or iPad before you started the trip, then you need the following solution: CrashPlan

I store all my eBooks in Calibre and Calibre stores them in /Users/<you>/Library/Application Support/Calibre/ and that folder is backed up too with CrashPlan. That is step 1.

With CrashPlan, you can (and should) backup all your data, music and movies automatically on unlimited cloud-storage so your data is backed up outside of your home or work environment. And thus also your eBooks! That is step 2.

And the guys at CrashPlan created an very nice iOS app with which you can access your backup on their cloud-storage from anywhere ... and download files from there onto your iPhone or iPad! And thus also your eBooks! That is step 3.

To illustrate what I mean, I put together an image sequence to illustrates the steps to take to download an eBook from your own backup onto your iPhone or iPad.

Very cool and very handy!

I use this method also when I want to email any file which I have on my desktop at home - I download it from CrashPlan and then email it ... from my iPhone. No need to setup remote login to my iMac, no need to setup screen sharing, etc..

Of course there are other ways, but since this one is completely automatic and also backs up ALL our data, it is my preferred off-site storage solution.

Foto's uit militaire dienst van 1981 bij mijn OYPO webshop

Het werd weer tijd om mijn OYPO webshop uit te breiden. De toegevoegde foto's zijn gemaakt tijdens mijn militaire diensttijd in 1981, toen ik ook nog aan modelbouw deed.

Wireless network connections in hotels and on the road

If you ever try to be smart and add some hi-speed DNS servers to your WiFi DNS settings ... don't. I thought I was and the last months I have been wondering why I couldn't connect to wireless LANs in hotels and trains - and they didn't know either.

Today, at Hotel BB (good hotel btw) they put me in contact with their WiFi-provider and after a going through every detail, we found the reason: my manual DNS entries. Why did I put them there? Well, at home I sometimes use NameBench to find the best DNS-servers. And since Google's DNS servers are mostly the fastest, I thought it a good thing to add those two (8.8.8.8 and 4.4.4.4) permanently to the DNS of my WiFi connection! Which then blocked and confused the routers in the hotels I was staying or the trains on which I travelled. And I thought what a shitty stuf do these guys have... hum hum ;-)

So.... I created a separate location for when I am mobile and I called it Mobile (DHCP). I leave it totally empty so routers in hotels and trains can discuss with my Macbook Pro what is the best connection and which DNS-servers to use. Here's how in images:

1-network-prefs
 
2-edit-locations
 
3-add-location
 
4-turn-wifi-on
 
5-connect
 
and click Apply when the Mac asks you to!

Now, whenever I go out and take my MacBook Pro with me, I first choose this Mobile (DHCP) location so whatever WiFi-router I connect to, I have a good chance for internet access.

E-Mail to Evernote

I fixed some other flaws in my version of the Send E-Mail to Evernote.scpt:

Update 13 aug 2014:
- I repaired a situation where there is no content-type found in the email headers. I now set it to text/plain in such a case.

Update 5 aug 2014:
- I repaired the strange time formatting (1=3=4=5 instead of 1345) when adding multiple email messages at once.
- And I added a dialog when the script has successfully finished processing for when Growl is not active.

See also my previous posts.
