I got my iPhone 3G on the day they first came out. I of course had to try out the then sometimes broken MobileMe service and cancelled before the 30-day trial was up. Some time after I started realizing that my Address Book contacts were no longer syncing and I started seeing random phone numbers instead of names. Here’s what I had to do to fix it.

I have been wondering what happened to my ramblings from early 2007… Hackers got ’em… I’m working on restoring the lost articles. I am fortunate that they still exist in the database and I just need to edit them to repost them. You can again enjoy classics like Matzah Brei, Take One and Package from goes back in time.

I’m starting to resume projects that I haven’t worked on in a few years, so look for more frequent updates in the near future.
