I was doing some walking last night and watched Stargate Atlantis off netflix. Hey, you know – it was science fiction, and it gives me something to do while I’m walking. As far as episodic science fiction goes, well – it’s really not very good. Of course I’m comparing it to Firefly… But that justContinue reading “Stargate Atlantis, not so good.”
This is what happened when I went to the URL http://connect.apple.com this morning: When I reloaded, the apple developer login page came up normally, but I’ve never seen an error page that read: “No Error”.
Michael McCracken has a delicious link that I thought was incredibly useful tonight, so I wanted to share: Troubleshooting Cocoa Bindings. While the bindings are cool, debugging and troubleshooting when code is using it is a real pain. Yeah – almost like giving a cat antibiotics. This article doesn’t explain it all, but at leastContinue reading “debugging bindings”
There’s a neat article about the upcoming use of Sterling Engines to create some highly effecient solar energy conversion in the California desert. I first read about this some time back, and have since been quietly obsessed with the idea of using the external combustion engine (yes, that’s correct and NOT a typo) in aContinue reading “Sterling Engines”
One of the neat experiments at Mindcamp has been talked about a bit – the Seattle Wireless Network put up (or attempted to put up) a rather large ad-hoc wireless network using OLSR. It’s been commented on by others, so I’ll just summarize by saying: “Neat experiment, didn’t work for us”. I was very skepticalContinue reading “OLSR at Mindcamp”
Hmmm… FreeBSD 6.0 is hittin’ the streets. Going to have to check this out…
Michele Simionato has an article up at OReillyNet on testing web applications, focused mainly around python and Twill. Twill is a neat little mini-language thing, and he mentions Selenium at the very end of the article. I wish he’d looked a little more into Selenium. The more I see of it, the more I thinkContinue reading “Testing web apps (Python, Twill)”
Gus‘ VoodooPad has had the ability to run code inside it for quite a while. It was one of the coolest features for me, providing me a massive snippet library of python tidbits as I was working out a problem. Now someone else is really getting into that same style – and Garret is takingContinue reading “Old feature, new twist for VoodooPad”
