New Hampshire

We were in Concord visiting the Museum of NH History and stopped by the NH State House to look around inside. Just walking around looking at old paintings of Governors, checking out the legislator chambers, etc.

We walk by a Men's restroom and Trevor, being a smartass, hits the handicap button that opens the heavy door.

It opens -- and Governor John Lynch is washing his hands! Walking down the hall we get to talking and when he noticed my camera. He had an aid take a group photo in the Governor's Reception room.

I love this little state!

As well as a bunch of smaller, mostly political blogs.

The most popular photos are those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain from when there were campaigning for the NH Primary.

How to connect a Samsung Flipshot U900 to Ubuntu/Linux

First purchase a USB cable that works with the Samsung Flipshot U900 -- I ordered one from for $8.95 (and $6.95 s/h)

The default setting for the phone was to ask how it should present itself when connected via USB. The options are "Ask on Plug", "Copy To/From Card", "Sync Music" or "Modem"
Since I'm always going to use it like a usb-storage device, I changed it to always use "Copy To/From Card".

  • 5. Settings & Tools

  • 8. USB Auto Detection

  • Change to "Copy From/To Card'.

Now you can copy files to /media/disk. My top level directory looks like this:

$ ls /media/disk/
