On the Move Again and Could Use Some Help

ImageWell, I’m not moving, but over the weekend, I’m planning on migrating my WordPress.com blog over to a self-hosted WordPress.org blog.  I think I know what I’m doing (which means my blog may be down for the next week or so), but what I’m uncertain of is if I will lose any followers who are currently following through WordPress.com, itself.  I assume everything else is about the same if you’re following me through DavidCPrice.com or RSS feed.  If I’m wrong on this, I’d appreciate any tips to help me out.  I really appreciate those who are following my updates and don’t want to lose anybody. Wish me…oh, uh, after my recent post, I guess it might be seen as hypocritical to say that, huh?

By the way, this is my 300th post on this particular blog.  Thought it was noteworthy…to me, at least.

Mini-Drones: Coming to a Neighborhood Near You

The “cool-factor” is very high, but when I think about neighbors potentially flying this around the neighborhood checking each other out, the “creep-factor” goes through the roof.

The Parrot AR Drone 2.0, listed on Amazon just below $300, is the best way to live out one’s fantasy of being a spy. The miniature drone is controlled through your iPhone or iPad and features multiple sensors, including a hi-definition front-facing 720-pixel camera and a vertical camera looking straight down from the bottom of the miniature quadricopter (four propellers).

The 2.0 model – the first version was released in 2010 – also lets you record video and take pictures during flight and easily share them online.

Great. Something else to put on Facebook. Maybe it’s just me.

Laptop Security

I came across a really great (and free!) option to help secure your computer if it’s ever lost or stolen.  If you own a laptop or an expensive smartphone, you may want to check out Prey:

Prey lets you keep track of your phone or laptop at all times, and will help you find it if it ever gets lost or stolen. It’s lightweight, open source software, and free for anyone to use. And it just works.
