    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...

    Into the Breach

    • 2 Comments
    It happened today; to me. It happens a few times a year, so you learn to expect it. You know its coming but you put it out of your mind until it just sort of shows up. I used to dread it, knowing, wondering what it would mean. Today, I kind of knew what...

    A few days ago the mars rover 'Opportunity' made a startling discovery on the surface of Mars. The rover had landed in a shallow basin of a small meteor crater. Not to be stymied by this mishap, the scientists at NASA decided to proceed with a full scale...

    Spammed to death

    • 4 Comments
    I like most people that use the internet detest spam. I hate it. I want it to go away. And that's just the meat product. Email spam, now that's just plain criminal. There's just no innocent motive behind that one. Spammers try to make a quick buck by...

    Wrong Again

    Okay, they’ve got it all wrong! I’ve spent considerable amount of time over the last few weeks researching different products that might be able to solve the audio problem. What I want is a system that will play my digital music files...
