Updated 9/12/10: I'm not sure any more if this is an iPhone 4 glitch or an Adobe Lightroom 3.2 bug. A thread has been opened in the Adobe Lightroom Forum, if you'd like to chime in there.

After experiencing multiple, serious data loss events on multiple Drobo models, even recent ones, I no longer consider them safe for my data. One of my readers asked me a little more than a month ago if I could post some screenshots of the … Continue reading Connect two Drobo units to your computer at the same time?
For over a month now, I have been unable to rely on the official WordPress Stats plugin. (I say official because the folks that made WordPress also made this plugin.) It, all of a sudden, started assigning all site visits to the same article, so that all of my stats became completely skewed. Let me … Continue reading WordPress Stats plugin has gone cuckoo
Shortly after upgrading to Adobe's new Flash Player, version 10, I noticed I could no longer upload photos to my blogs. And I also noticed that FriendFeed's image uploader didn't work the same way. I didn't relate that to the Flash Player upgrade at first, and tried to rule out problems on my own machine. … Continue reading Flash Player 10 breaks teh internets
