    I've got a new drug. I'm not sure how long its going to last. Thanks to all the feedback from my prior post . I got a lot of ideas from everyone who replied, and I acted on one of them. I purchase the Harmony SST-659 universal remote. It is programmed...

    Compelling thoughts

    • 15 Comments
    Sometimes I get singly focused on my work. It's all I can think about. I know its happening. I even help it along by shutting myself off from everything else. It's easy to do at work. I go into my office, shut the door and I'm in my own little cave; a...

    Turbo Charged

    At lunch last week a few of us were reminiscing about early language environments, compilers and what not. Anders was there telling us stories about his early days. I thought I would come clean for a change. I let everyone in on my dirty little secret...

    Cheat Codes

    Betsy and I were playing Neverwinter again a few nights ago. We were having trouble with some metal behemoths. It seems our tactics and weapons were having no effect. We would have had a better weapon, but it was accidentally sold at the last merchant...

    Getting a grip on the big picture

    • 1 Comments
    I got a grip on Sunday, or more to the point I was the grip. I spent the better part of the afternoon and evening pushing what is technically a giant skateboard back and forth along a track. My brother David, the 'independent film director' was working...

    Leaked Windows code shows similarity to UNIX

    • 15 Comments
    Now that the cat is out of the bag, I guess it is plain to see that windows shares a lot of similarities with Unix. SCO would be very interested to know that some lines of code are identical between windows and Unix System V sources. For example, I...

    I want a new drug

    • 23 Comments
    I want something to buy. Some piece of technology. I've got the money, but there is nothing out there. Nothing that gives me a buzz, like it used to. I'm not saying that I have every gadget, gizmo and thing-a-ma-bob that's available. Quite the contrary...

    Language Inferencing

    • 11 Comments
    I've been involved in a lot of debates over the last few years over the merits of strongly-typed languages versus loosely-types ones. For example, vbscript and java script are generally loosely-typed languages. Local variables defined within a body of...

    I’m writing this today as I sit relaxing on my new office couch. You can read about my couch adventure here. Ah, the luxury. Though now I hear that Don Box has a BED in his office. I’m not sure if I should be jealous or not. I think I’ll...
