I murder plants :(

It is true. I don’t do it on purpose, but it happens. I love plants. I love having them in my house and at work. But over time I’ve somehow become a serial plant killer and I hate myself for it.

Have no fear, redemption is here (at the cost of $168). God has done some UX work and sent us a plant angel on the iOS and web to save us from sinning again, aka the Koubachi Wi-Fi Sensor.

Dear Sheikha Mahboob (my dying palm tree),

Help is here. I shall love and care for you when notified by the plant angel. Look forward to seeing you green again.

Love, Nadeem!

WordPress.com doesn’t give you simple instructions on how to install the Press This bookmark on to the iPhone and iPad safari bookmark bar. I found this cool little tool that helps you install all the different bookmarklets available on the internet straight from your idevice. Thanks to Yusuke Kawasaki! http://kawanet.blogspot.com/2010/08/bookmarklet-viewer-bookmarklet-for.html

Install his bookmarklet, then visit the Tools page on your wordpress admin dashboard, to easily install the Press This bookmarklet using the same method. Let me know if you need any help!

These instructions are for converting any mp3 audio file into an iPhone compatible ringtone online, and uploading it onto your iPhone. You’ll need your online computer and your iPhone + usb cable.

  1. Find the MP3 file you’d like to set as your ringtone and place it somewhere like your desktop.
  2. Go to www.makeownringtone.com and click on the ‘Upload’ button.
  3. In the pop up window, navigate to the MP3 file on your computer, select ok and wait till the upload is complete.
  4. Stay in Easy Mode, and select M4R in the ‘File Format’ dropdown.
  5. Click in the gray audio sample area, and select the start/stop points in the song you’d like to set as your ringtone.
  6. You can click on the ‘Selected’ button to hear what you’ve selected.
  7. When you’re satisfied, click on ‘MAKE A RINGTONE’ button at the bottom.
  8. Right click on the download link, and click on Save as or Save link as.
  9. Edit the filename, and save it to your music folder.
  10. Connect your iphone, open itunes, and drag the new file into your iphone ringtones folder. (If you don’t see a ringtones folder in itunes, go to Edit -> Preferences -> and select Ringtones in ‘Show’ -> ok)
  11. Disconnect your iphone, when you go to settings, sounds, you’ll see the new ringtone as an option on top.
