Windows Phone 8.1

Thoughts about an OS.

Windows Phone 8.1's been out in near-final state through the Preview for Developers program for about three weeks now. Though there're a lot of new features and changes, I'm not going to go over all of them in detail; by now there are loads of other articles and posts available which would do a much better job. These are just my thoughts on things I came across.

Setting the Pace

Custom speeds for IVLE's Silverlight-based webcasts.

For one reason or another (read: I have no idea why, but...), the few webcasts I've watched recently seem to work better when viewed faster than real-time. I’d download the MP4 version, open it up in VLC, and use the playback speed controls to speed things up anywhere from 1.1 to, on one occasion, 1.3 times the normal rate.

Yet Another "How To Install Jekyll on Windows" Post.

It seems there's no shortage of these. (I guess this doesn't help in that respect either.)

Sorting Images with PowerShell

An incremental journey.

I've accumulated quite a number of wallpapers over the last few years; close to two thousand images totalling almost 3.5 GB and counting, in fact. They came from a whole hodgepodge of places online, in various sizes and aspect ratios, and I have them in my SkyOneDrive folder so they get synced across my desktop and laptop.
