Raleway Font

I change fonts on this site often.

It’s made possible by Google fonts and my Google Fonts custom plugin.

Here’s a snapshot of my Google Fonts plugin:


I’m currently using the beautiful ‘Raleway’ font.

It can change in a moments notice.

Cowells Live

This is Cowell’s Beach in Santa Cruz. The live stream is courtesy of Surfline. This is the free version. It streams for about 30 seconds at a time. Ads are sandwiched in between the streams. At the moment, there’s a big swell from the WNW bringing 3-5 foot waves, and occasional 6 foot waves. If it’s going good at Cowell’s, Mavericks at the moment is firing at 20-25 feet, with occasional 30 foot waves.

Identify Your iPad Model

If you’re having a little trouble identifying your iPad, Apple has a page that identifies the year and the model of your iPad. You need to search for your model number at the back of your device between the FCC ID and the Serial Number. You’ll find some number that starts with an “A” similar to this “A1489.” On the Apple page, you need to search for your model number. It will tell you what iPad version do you have.

How To Prevent Plastic Mat From Moving On Carpet

We just laid new carpeting three months ago. I bought a new plastic mat so it doesn’t wear out the carpet underneath the computer chair. There’s a slight problem though, the mat keeps moving towards the wall and it would curl up, and I have to constantly pull it back. This happens on a daily basis. I read online that you can secure a plastic map to the carpet and floor using really long tacks, but I really don’t want to do that. Another option is to use some kind of carpet gripper underneath the mat. I don’t want to mess up the carpet either. Finally, it dawned on me, why don’t I just place the plastic mat underneath one or a couple of the legs of the desk.


Problem solved.

Apple Faulty AC Adapters

It’s not often that Apple recall its products, but the faulty AC adapters has the potential to cause harm due to overheating of the plugs. Countries that are affected are Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Continental Europe, New Zealand and South Korea. There have been 12 incidents reported worldwide so far. The recall does not affect the U.S., Canada, China, Hong Kong, Japan, or the U.K. But Apple says the faulty AC plugs are also in the World Travel Adapter Kit.
