One of my favourite people has just launched a website for her psychodynamic psychotherapy practice in West London: www.camilledestempel.com.
Nancy was having some trouble getting her application to create Pinterest Rich Pins working. The validator tool (and tech support) were not very helpful. The error just said:
I tried verifying that there was no intra-AWS connectivity issues (Pinterest’s tool lives in AWS, but so does Nancy’s site), but I could see in the Apache logs that Pinterest was getting an HTTP-200 OK response.
It then dawned on me that I had – in a fit of security consciousness – turned on click-jacking protection on all my self-hosted domains.

As USB webcams are plug-and-play in OS X, there is no interface for adjusting settings, which is mighty annoying.
Here is what video performance is like on the LifeCam, compared to my MacBook’s built-in cam.

well-balanced video, no need to tweak
Googling around, I found a post by Dominic Szablewski that addressed this exact issue. His free little app fixed the auto-exposure problem, although I’m not sure the fix will stick. Huzzah!
