Yay random!

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

I awoke with the strangest notions at 5am. To color in my meaning of “strangest” for you couple-few readers, my immediate thoughts on waking were the number 55 as it appears sideways, why my feet seem so far away, the color of silvering, and Rutherford B. Hayes. Puzzled at the lack of connective tissue and/or […]

Flash in the iPan

Friday, September 10th, 2010

I occasionally write articles for work to highlight and explain IT buzz to the team and thought I’d share the latest. This one attempts to explain Apple’s recent loosening of restrictions for iOS. Most readers of this blog are unlikely to come away from this article with new information. However, it may come in handy […]

1. Take a picture of yourself right now. 2. Don’t change your clothes, don’t fix your hair… just take a picture. 3. Post that picture with NO editing. 4. Post these instructions with your picture. Via Rey Bango

missing flex sdk

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

I’m really hoping to find someone with flex_sdk_3.0.2.2171.zip. This release has disappeared from opensource.adobe.com. Unfortunately, I no longer have it and need to make a 1 to 1 copy of a swf from source that used this sdk. I’ve tried v3.0.2.2113 and v3.0.3.2490 but both produce a swf that is around 6kb too small to […]

Randy Pausch and too many others

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

When I read yesterday that Randy Pausch kicked, it felt like he had kicked me in the chest. Left side, just below the nipple. Pancreatic cancer haunts me. August 20th will mark me old man’s b-day and Oct 16 will mark 1 year since dad made the Q-sign (his pet name for death – head […]

Guess Apollo’s new name

Friday, June 8th, 2007

Like Joseph Labrecque, I’ve been squinting hard at Ted’s Friday: Apollo post. What’s Apollo’s new name under that blur? Little editing gives us a slightly improved view: Send me yer best guess comments. Update: Looks like someone may have gotten it or gotten too close on a comment on Ted’s post, as he seems to […]

1st Step into a larger Hello World!

Friday, June 8th, 2007

I’ve just compiled my first java Hello World test. Big deal, I know, but I figure this’ll be a good dated place-holder for my progress in learning java. The interrest here is to begin using Red5 in some test projects and gather further experience for… well… building cooler stuff. I wish setting up for Red5 […]

programming like you don’t know any better

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

My post today is based on some rather goofy pontificating. Having said that, let me begin: I was marveling at children today, and further marveling at how adults marvel at them. Skipping past the ‘they are so innocent’ portion (sort of), it also occurred to me that many adults are marveling at a child stuck-fast […]
