Estrip android app

I was working on an update to the estrip android app which checks for network connectivity first instead and displays a nice little message instead of force quitting. I added this little homage to (e:tinypliny) who is the one that discovered the issue as I had never tried the app on a device with no network connection.

Just to give you an idea how unusual this is on a mobile android device - this is the message for the google marketplace. I think mine looks better.

My new friend birdo

He doesn't have a name yet but he is so cute. He is actually (e:matthew)'s pet but he sat on my shoulder for like an hour and kept giving me kisses. He is so snuggly and cute compared to the rock. I hope the rock doesn't eat him.

Straight Guys?

I decided to check out google circles again today which brought to some random guy in a friends circle which brought me to twitter which brought me to this guy. I am fascinated by the way that gay culture has kind of taken over idolizing masculinity and close male relationships. I wonder what male relationships were like prior to modern gay culture. Its so hard to tell because everything we read now is filtered by the people who documented it and how many people's opinions do you trust. This guy seems to be trying to explore this.

everybody loves cheesy puffs

I wonder how many bugs grow up on junk food nowadays and if they suffer from things like obesity, clogged spiracles because of it.

I mean imagine the difference in nutrients between their traditional diet of fruit, worms, sap, etc and a cheesy puff.

Issue With Fedora 15 Terminal Transparency in Gnome 3

It has been making me absolutely crazy that since I switched to Fedora 15, Gnome 3 I lost my terminal transparency due to a bug in Mutter which caused the drop shadow of windows to be opaque. The bug report was filed with redhat back on March 3rd but the problem was with mutter not Fedora so they had to wait for a fix. On June 29th it was fixed in mutter and we have been waiting since then for the bug fix to make it into fedora.

I understand this kind of thing takes a while, but a status update would be nice. Finally, I decided to try the mutter/clutter version that comes with Fedora 16 (rawhide) and it works. I cannot wait for someone to back port this to Fedora 15.

If you need terminal/windows transparency in the meantime, you can update to the fedora 16 version using fedora 15.

sudo yum install fedora-release-rawhide
sudo yum update clutter mutter --enablerepo=rawhide update

Afterwards, I got perfectly normal transparency on windows with a drop shadow.

Mark Grisanti

I kind of feel bad for him. The anti gays are really hating on him now for representing his district. I find it so ironic that the Christian right winger want to see a referendum on this. This isn't California. How is anyone imposing gay marriage in anyone else?

I still wish they hadn't approved gay marriage but had rather cancelled marriage altogether and left marriage as something non governmental that you can choose to do on your own or with your church.

OMFG

What the hell is this in my arm? Its like I got bit by a mini vampire but it does not itch or hurt. I have never seen such bright red marks with bright white circles around them. If its a tick bite I will just kill myself.

Facing Buffalo

(e:terry) and (e:matthew) taking some pics of Buffalo from Fort Erie Canada. Their aide of the river is so much more pleasant but you gave to consider how much smaller if a city it us than Buffalo and that their is not a highway right on the river.

The Tea Party - Lockport Concert Series

Went to go see the teaparty in lockport on Friday. The band was ok but the singer lost his voice halfway through the show. It was one of those shows were all the fans seems to know all the words and sang along.

I was no so into the venue. It was so super crowded and the ticket line was like a half hour long and wound through the cloud while the concession lines themselves were short because no one had tickets.

The pinnacle moment if irritation was when some super tan bitch elbowed me because I did not let her and her multiple cans of beer through right away.

I hate girls that assume that I am some desperate straight guy and that they can do whatever they want because they look slutty. I did finally let her through but not before spitting in her hair. I hope she gets orange tongue to go with her fake tan.

Terry and the porch

(e:terry) and (e:enknot) finished the porch at the rental property. They replaced the wood and painted. It looks amazing. I think we can get our insurance back again now.
