Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Former Genius says thermal paste quantity doesn’t seem to change much of anything to MacBook temperatures, and why would it matter anyway since excess paste will be squished aside when everything is pressed shut (makes sense), and how unexpected can it be that Steve Jobs would have his laptop firmwares design so that he’d rather scald his lap than hear fans spin?

Apple Store Fifth Avenue elevator freezes. Nevermind that you gotta admit it’s an apt metaphor for Rev. A Apple hardware, what puzzles me is that the people who got stuck in a glass case for 45 minutes reportedly didn’t receive any compensation whatsoever. What kind of business practices is that?!

AllYouCanUpload: upload your images there, and display them on your blog, forum or whatever — nothing new, except it’s all free, there’s no upload or bandwidth limit, and you don’t even need to register.

Not sure whether “You can [only] post photographs you have taken or other images you have created” is just the usual legal disclaimer or they really intend to enforce it, though (I have little doubt that the ban on pornography will be enforced, however). Still, a completely free image hosting service that’s part of CNET networks and doesn’t even require registration or your e-mail address, that’s pretty nice.

INSERT ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE. Yay. Had no idea. Should read the release notes more often. “30% speedup should be typical.” I’m glad I upgraded the new webserver to MySQL 4.
