    Asteroid on collision course

    • 9 Comments
    Anyone can see it now with a pair of good binoculars. The asteroid known as 2004 FH has passed within the orbit of the moon. Scientists are skeptical that it will actually impact either the earth or the moon, but after considerable observation they know...

    Real coders, real code.

    • 41 Comments
    It's late, do you know where your coder is? Really, it's a very good question. You think your spouse is sleeping next to you at night. They are not. They are awake, bleary, weary and barely lucid, secretly feeding their addiction. Yes, it is sad and...

    Brian Noyles blogs about the XPathNavigator , and how it has improved his life. I spoke last night at the Central Pennsylvania Users Group in Harrisburg, PA. They have a great group and about 35 folks turned out despite snow and nasty weather. Judy...

    Data as a Service

    • 3 Comments
    Why is working with a database always an awkward proposition? It’s like this monolithic bank that houses all your valuables. Except it can’t be just any bank. It has to be this specific bank, on this corner with this address. Your data is...

    Getting in the Game

    • 2 Comments
    What is it with games? I think there are only maybe five actual games on the market, every other one is just basically the same one redone with new graphics, a slight variation of data. I’ve been a game consumer for a long time, and have at times...

    XML: Getting dirty with BMX

    • 8 Comments
    Years ago there was a time when I thought XML was evil. That was back when the whole idea was pretty new to my ears. The only introduction I’d had to it was a few examples being shown around by Adam Bosworth when he’d come to our group and...

    Programming in the Blue

    • 17 Comments
    It amazes me how difficult it is to design new features to a programming language. Once a language is baked in its original form it’s almost impossible to add new semantics let alone syntax rules. Operators are hellish. You want to invent new ones...

    Fried Out

    • 4 Comments
    There I was yesterday, at the Mecca of all things tech. How I got there is a long story. It was partially due to my own drive to solve a variety of gadget based problems, but not really. I did not truly expect to find the solutions there, I just wanted...
