UPDATE:  Well, all my ‘upsets’ sucked dick this week.  Lost the Georgia/Arkansas game with 16 seconds left, lost the ND/MSU game in OT.  I did get Arizona right, but they almost lost it, and of course TCU kicked the shit out of Baylor.  Maybe next week…

Creating a ringtone for your iPhone using iTunes

iTunesSteps that I”ve used to create your own custom ringtone for your iPhone using some features in Windows and iTunes.  This articles uses iTues, and iPhone IOS 4.01.

  1. Find a file in iTunes that you like.  Find a track and note the start time (i.e. 0:41 seconds into a song) of the song you want to start the ringtone with.
  2. Right click on the file and click “Get Info”
  3. Click options.
  4. Input the start time.
  5. Add 29 seconds to the start time and input the stop time.
  6. Once done, click ok.
  7. Right click on the same file, and click “Create AAC version”.
  8. iTunes will create/convert the file.
  9. Locate the new AAC file in your main music library.
  10. Right click on the file and select “Show in Windows explorer”.
  11. Rename the file extension from .m4a to .m4r.  This makes it a ringtone file.
  12. From Windows Explorer, drag the file into the ”Ringtones” menu on your iTunes interface (under the LIBRARY heading).
  13. Sync the ringtone with your iPhone as normal.
Collarbone update – 8 weeks

Collarbone update – 8 weeks

So as of today, I”m at 8 weeks and 1 day from the break of my right collarbone.  According to alot of stuff I”ve read, at 3 weeks or so you can resume some activities, and by about 8 weeks you should feel pretty good.  I can say that”s true.  The guidelines basically say it takes 12 weeks to heal completely, and I would say that”s probably right.  I can do 90% of the things I could do before, with some small exceptions.  I can pick things up, put my shirt on, scratch the opposite side of my body with my right arm (try reaching across behin your opposite shoulder to see what I mean) and even ride a bike (I”ve done probably 400 miles since the accident).

By 12 weeks I should be back to 100%, so we”ll see.
