  • Blog Post: Moving my Main Blog From MSDN to WWW.SebbyLive.Com

    The time has come to finally move away from hosting my blog on MSDN. There are a few reasons for this transition but the two main deciding factors were that posting personal posts on a MSDN blog seemed odd (at least to me) and that I already had my own website to document my various side-projects so...
  • Blog Post: Announcement: Practical .NET2 and C#2 Second Edition!!

    I was planning on making the announcement later this week but Amazon.com bet me to it with their "pre-order" email... I am indeed running a little behind with the advertisement since the release is set for Oct 15th. But I will have an official press release and an update to www.ParadoxalPress.com later...
  • Blog Post: Wow, Time Sure Flies By! 08/12 Update...

    It's amazing how time ch some dosage anan fly by some times. It's been one month since my last post. Summer is already comming to an end. I have to admit that this year somehow flew by despite everything that has happened. What's up with Flight Simulator? We are hard at work on the release of Service...
  • Blog Post: Hey, I got my Very Own General Attorney General Letter!

    Sheesh. Some people are idiots. Some "wannabe" author who decided to go the self-publishing route via Xilbris had sent me a letter about one month ago accusing me of selling counterfit copies of his book on my website. Why? Well because the site listed that we had 100 copies in stock and of course...
  • Blog Post: Why is Google Tageting me Like This?

    I upload feeds to "base.google.com" which essentially contains a list of all the books I have for sale on www.ParadoxalPress.com . Which is alot of books, probably about 500,000+ titles since most are drop-shipped from the distributor (hey, compressed the datafeed is about 180MB worth of data!). Lately...
  • Blog Post: The One-Haned Post... :)

    No, nothing twisted. Just still have my splint on my right hand so I almost have to type using a single hand :) Its been a while since i've posted a general update. So I thought today would be as good a day as any... Health Last week has been pretty bad health wise. If you factor in my finger surgery...
  • Blog Post: Misc Update for 04/16... Well 04/17...

    Near 1 am, getting tired. So it is indeed time to go to bed. But since I havn't posted in a few days, I thought I would post a quick update. House Life Actually started working more on the house with my wife. Not that we hadn't been doing anything before but most of it was planning. We've actually...
  • Blog Post: All Websites Finally Back Up!

    Wow. Took a while!! Well, www.SebbyLive.com was back up mid-day today. But www.ParadoxalPress.com took a little longer as I had more setup to do (such as uploading several GB of data, re-installing the SSL certs, ...). As a side note, my server is hosted by http://www.calpop.com/ , I have a dedicated...
  • Blog Post: My new homepage goes live at SebbyLive.com

    I've been mentioning for the past few weeks that i've been working on a new "homepage" for myself where I could post more information on some of my projects, especially in regards to projects that didn't directly relate to my book publishing efforts. I have completed the first version of the website...
  • Blog Post: General Update, a little bit of everything...

    Return to Work First of all, as I've been going through my mailbox, I have recieved several blog related emails that were posted via my blog. Since these emails were sent to my Microsoft email address, I have not been able to read them until this week. So if you did send me an email over the past...
  • Blog Post: ShaderX6 Call for Authors. Last Call!!!

    After the success of ShaderX, the ShaderX2 books, ShaderX3, ShaderX4 (Game developer frontline award) and ShaderX5, we are looking for authors for ShaderX6. The book will cover advanced rendering techniques that run on the DirectX and/or OpenGL run-time with any shader language available. It will include...
  • Blog Post: The Joys of Being a Night-Owl.

    Not sure if its joyful or not. Its 3:30 am in my office, with no lights out and no noise. In a way, it's probably the best environment to get anything done. But with 3 days to do before I head back to work, i'll definetly have to break this cycle. Not so easy as it may sound. This is the one problem...
  • Blog Post: All the Data is Safe!

    Yay! That sure took forever! Finally managed to get all the data copied to my main PC. Took a little over a week of trial and error to get the whole process done. So essentiallyh a whole week where I had no data access and probably more importantly, the worry whether or not I would see this data ever...
  • Blog Post: To Quote Steve... "I Hate This Shit"

    My ex-boss, Steve Lacey, who now works at Google posted an interesting tidbit about VC's (Venture Capitalists). ARTICLE HERE. "So, apparently there’s an event in New England where Venture Capitalists go and ski and entrepreneurs can pitch to them if their lucky enough to be on the same ski lift."...
  • Blog Post: Raid Data Recovery Update.

    Using UFS Explorer , I was able to recover about 90% if ny data. Unfortunately, some of it could not be recovered. Two folders just contained way too many files for the program to handle and would run out of memory. I was told by the author that he will be fixing this for version 3.4 but in the meantime...
  • Blog Post: Time for a Little Online Garage Sale.

    Well, in my case it is more of an inventory clearance. With my book retail on http://www.ParadoxalPress.com , i've accumulated a certain amount of inventory over the past 1 1/2 years. Although my initial plan was to list it on my website and other market places over time, my current need for money (and...
  • Blog Post: What to do with Excess Book Inventory?

    With a second edition of Practical .NET 2 and C# 2 comming up in the next few months I have been pondering what I will do with the remaining inventory of the first edition. With the current inventory, and the current rate of sale, I expect to have an inventory of about 500 copies left by the time...

The book will cover advanced rendering techniques that run...

  • Blog Post: A new version of EasyBarcode is comming up soon.

    One of the things i've been fiddling with during my off time is working on Version 2.0 of EasyBarcode. Version 1.x was focused only on ISBN/Booklan barcodes. However the new version will add support for most common 1D barcdode symbologies as well as a few 2D symbologies. Some of the new features include...
  • Blog Post: Owning my own printing press would make publishing easier.

    Been browsing around, trying to figure out what the costs of the equipment to print my own books would be. This could reduce my costs and would definetly increase my turnaround speed. Of course, with such high-end machinery, no one really posts any pricing information online. But as I browsed around...
