My Google Docs Offline Feature Got Turned On
Sat, 19 Apr 2008 20:01:20

I noticed that my Google Docs offline feature was turned on today. Google Gears took what seemed like less than a minute to synchronize files. There's an icon on my desktop to quickly access files in offline mode.

FYI: OpenDNS and T-Mobile Hotspots Don't Mix
Tue, 15 Apr 2008 18:56:57

I don't use T-Mobile Hotspots often. However, I have been using it while in Seattle this week. It was the first time I used the Hotspots since switching my Macbook to OpenDNS supplied DNS servers. Unfortunately, you can't get to T-Mobile's proxy on the inside of their network (makes sense) when using OpenDNS servers. So, I removed the OpenDNS DNS entries for now. I should have created a new profile but was in a rush to get things working and didn't think that far ahead :-)
