When Someone is Helping, Don’t Nag!

I work hard everyday. It is a different kind of work than what my wife does, and I believe that after nearly 30 years of marriage she still does not understand it. Nor do I understand a person’s need to complain. This morning she came in and asked, “can you get up and help me?” […]

Til Journey’s End

We awake each day with nearly a blank slate. Perhaps some confusion if we were lucky enough to have an involving dream. For me it is always a surprise to be here. My dreams have me on so many various adventures, it is with some reluctance to realize I am back in this one. It […]

Each Step Brings You Closer

Sometimes you hit a brick wall. Or rather you face a detour on your path. Maybe it is just taking longer than expected and you are eager to be at the next point. With the TE project I have several things going at once. There is still the need to learn more about MVC. There […]

I’m Still Waiting

It is difficult to live off of dwindling resources. Regardless of how big a finite pool is, eventually it will be drained without additional funds being added. For every sustainable outflow there must be an inflow. Last week I had lunch with a couple of buddies. They told me of a small project that may […]

Another Day

So now I am analysing the query strings used in the TE website dB interface. I picked a string and discovered that there are nearly 1,500 similar ones scattered throughout nearly 250 files. But at the back of my mind is the thought, why the concern with Zulu time? Maybe it is a brilliant insight […]

No Win 7 Driver for magicolor 2300 DL

It was a nice printer. A bit difficult to setup and one day it ran low on Black toner. So I bought the toner but am frustrated by the procedure to replace it. Now I may just as well replace the entire printer. Because my 64bit Beast demand a 64 bit Win 7 driver that […]

Session as Static Object Storage

By coming late to the game with Classic ASP, I get to understand the why of ASP.NET evolution. It revolves around scalability. We have a page on a browser. When the user interacts with that page, the first available processor in the farm should be able to deal with it. But a processor has its […]

Somewhere Over the Rainbow…

There in OZ is much happiness. Though very far away, yet that place is obtainable as Dorothy proved. But taking trips with tornado can be hazardous to your health, just ask the Wicked Old Witch of the East! Oops you can’t! Because a house landed on her and she’s DEAD! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicked_Witch_of_the_East So I have been asked to […]

Projects and Planning

Some people need a set of instructions. It helps to make a list. We often use shorthand. I know of no one who plans out in detail what one will do in a day. My shopping list is quite simple. It often contains single words like “bread”. Sometimes I use an abbreviation like “OJ”. There […]

Empire Strikes Back

It is the best sequel regardless of which number of all that followed initial release of Star Wars. But this is not about Lucas, it is about Bill, who having left MS is still present in the force. Google has web apps and today… Microsoft has Web Apps Too! It is a thunder in the cloud. […]
