1. At the top left of your screen, open the Apple menu.
2. Click System Preferences…
3. Under Personal, click Langauge & Text. (On my system, this is the fifth icon from the left.)
4. Under the Language tab, drag English (or your preferred language) to the top of the list. In my case, I had to move English above Tieng Viet (Vietnamese).
5. If Google Chrome is running, restart Google Chrome. (Changes take effect at launch.)
“I hated high school. It was the worst time of my life. [Then] college … was just awful. When you’re in high school, everyone tells you, ‘There’s a lot of repetitive bullshit and standardized tests; it’ll all be better once you’re in college.’ And then you get to your first year of college and they’re like, ‘Oh, no– it gets better when you’re in grad school.’ … I couldn’t take it. So I dropped out. And I’m glad I did.” – Jamie Zawinski (jwz), one of the world’s best programmers.
Maintaining a website is a full-time job. And as a full-time student, iPhone developer, and Lab Assistant, I sometimes wonder if it’s too much. But people actually read this website, so I’ve got to keep it up for them. As ashanks04 pointed out to me, my website is down — but what do I care, I’m busy with iPhone apps
Well, I haven’t blogged in a long time, and now school’s about to start again, so I’d better get to it.
I’ve started a new blog called The Web Guy, the place where I talk about everything technology-related. I decided to do this because my personal blog– what you’re reading right now– was getting too cluttered with computer and technology stuff. So all of that kind of writing– from beeping ThinkPads to the Email toolbar in Word– will now be at The Web Guy. Every now and then, I will do a recap of what I’ve written over on The Web Guy blog. Here’s the first one, for the month of August 2007.
I just installed Windows Vista Home Premium on my Lenovo/IBM ThinkPad Z61t. Yes, after many months, I finally got fed up with XP and decided to dive into Vista with a fresh install, deleting my previous partition and starting off new. It was a fairly smooth experience, and I definitely like what Microsoft has done with Vista over XP.

Running your own server and writing your own scripts is really tough work. Now I need to go learn about HackTool.Linux.ProcHider.a.
I spent a few hours trying to find this, and now that I’ve found it, I feel rather stupid. I kept reading about an audio import module for Drupal which works with the Audio module to allow users to import audio files already on the server. That means large audio files (greater than 2 or 4 MB) could be uploaded via FTP and then imported. I looked all over the Drupal website and tried a bunch of searches on Google and Yahoo, to no avail. Finally I gave up and decided I’d just upload the file. I looked in the audio directory, and there it was! Audio import! It was under my nose the whole time, under Modules. Here’s what it looks like there:
Last week, I went to IVTCF’s Summer Conference at Maranatha in Idyllwild, CA. As part of that experience, I went on their new Guided Prayer Walk an decided to document their experience. Take a look at the horizontally-scrolling site and let me know what you think.
