Convert a spec.dock from 30-pin to lightning (for iPhone 5)

I highly recommend a car dock for your iPhone from 2point5.com. I bought mine when I had an iPhone 3GS. I since upgraded to a 4S, and I now have an iPhone 5. My choices are: get a new dock, or try to retrofit the one I had. Note I didn't contact 2point5 for help; it's possible they have a better cable to use.

Also, you can get black "universal dock" inserts from iHome. I find the white ones to be garish.

The Result

It's hard to tell from this photo, but the phone is crooked and leans toward the driver instead of away. But it's better than nothing!

my bash command: "go"

I have started a new public github repo: https://github.com/golm/bashrc where I plan to put a few bashrc files I use to make my life better.

The first of these provides a command I call "go" (see "dot-bashrc-go.sh", which I usually name .bashrc-go).  This is really nothing more than a way to quickly jump around to different directories.
