Traffic

One reason I want to life in Buffalo the rest of my life - TRAFFIC

We ate yummy food at a teashop too (e:theecarey)

I had Saint John's Wort Tea and it made me feel insane. I kind of feel like a psuedo tripping dizzyness.

I do not recommend eating to many extreme sour candies like warhead. I feel so sick from it even though they tasted so good. I might as well have eaten a dozen lemons.

Vendor Product Infomercial

So far the conference has been a sort of vendor product infomercial. I hope tomorrow with it's focus on search will be more interesting.

I know it's not just me being picky because I hear other people complaining and so far a couple people have even challenged the speakers on what they were saying.

In the future, I would rather attend a developers conference, like the PHP one right near by or the database DB world conference in Toronto last month.

At least california is cool, sushi is cheap and they gave me a free ipod for registering early.

One dot of service

I am at The KM world intranets conference now. Skipped the google adaptive path guy web 2 speech for one on network metrics. I found it interesting but am amazed at how product centric it was.

Got a free ipod for signing up early. Ipod number three. The new washing machine hasn't eaten one yet.

So here I am at this big fancy corporate intranet conference and the graphic on the back of the program show an intranet on mac os 9 explorer. Low design budget? Things that make you go hm.

The Hotel

So I got to (e:twisted)'s house safely. I thought I was supposed to be staying at the Marriot but when I called they nor the Hilton at the event have a reservation for me and they are booked. At least I know someone here. I can't imagine what it would have been like if I took a bus there and then they didn't have reservations. Maybe I was supposed to make the reservations. Either way, at least I somewhere to stay and a way to the event.

Wish me luck.

When You Are Going To San Francisco

I am at the airport waiting to fly off the San Francisco. Believe itor not I only brought one school sized backback, wired magazine, and a book on java. Notice the stark lack of computer in there. It seems like everyone else has a laptop.

I guess I didn't want to subject the vaio to risk of loss or damage and I definitely do not want to play on the computer while I am there. I figure, if I don't have it at the conference I will be focred to pay attention (to my phone, lol) No just kidding I am excited about the conference and am curious If I can really make it a week without programming.

I suppose having the phone is kind of like cheating since in essence it is a mini laptop and fully networked. Maybe I will just ssh in and play on the server while I am sitting here. Oka, no I instead will read the java book.

I am kind of sad that I am leaving. I really don't like leaving my house very much anymore. Maybe I picked that up from (e:matthew) as I used to travel wuite a bit.

Oh wait, I know what happed, it was the freakin terrorists. In my book they won because I am terrified of flying now. I would be much more excited about a train trip to California but I suppose all my days would be on the train.

See you soon (e:twisted) and (e:iriesara)

IE 7 is ruining my life

It is virtually impossible to deal with microsoft products. It is so ridiculous that IE 7 gets rid of IE 6. IN order to switch back and forth you either have to run a virtual machine, hack your registry all crazy or keep installing and uninstalling IE 6/7.

image

It seems so crazy that 80% of people supposedly have IE 6 but I can no longer test in IE 6 because I have IE 7. But I have to start testing in IE 7 because we all know that nothing will play well with it.

Once I decide to go IE 7 with estrip there will be no more support for IE 6 because I have no way of testing it unless someone wants to donate an IE 6 machine to me.

They didn't fix the security bug where I can read peoples clipboards . I even wrote to microsoft about it as did many others. It basically is disabled in IE 7 out of the box but if you upgrade from 6 it is still there. And how many people will upgrade from 6 and not have this fixed. Just about everyone.

Check yourself before you wreck yourself

Major IE 7 & and PHP Served from IIS 6 Incompatibility.

I had the most horrible day with IE 7. I really feel like microsoft just likes to see me waste my time. I should write them a letter about how I had to take a break from curing cancer to deal with defects in their browser.

Turns out that IE 7 cannot handle pages with the wrong Content-Length very well. If the content-length header exceeds the real content-length it gets especially messed up.

This is fucking insane. I discovered that session enabled PHP pages served with windows server IIS 6 to IE 7 do not refresh properly when there is javascript in the head of the document. They show up fine on first load but then show up blank intermittently on refresh. Here is the full overview with examples

When serving PHP from Apache I did not have this problem because apache always seems to report the correct Content-Length with the script.

Holly's Birthday and Phone Swimmer

We went to La Marina for (e:holly)'s birthday party last night. I cannot find a web site for them but here is their artvoice page



The food was really fabulous but it is quite expensive. The bill came to around $360 for 6 people. I mean we went all out, I think you could eat a lot cheaper there. We had fancy wine, appetizers, and entrees plus drinks. (e:holly) had crab cakes with lobster tail, I have to say it looked absolutely delicious. I had linguine with clam sauce and fried calamaris.

My phone decided to jump out of my pocket last night on Hertel Avenue as I ran down the street in the rain. My shoe had come untied and it was raining, so after I got it tied I ran to catch up with everyone else.

The phone sat in a puddle completely covered for a few seconds before I realized. Luckily, the battery had flown out when it hit the ground so there were no short circuits. I let the waterlogged phone dry out in my bone dry gas heated house and today it work fine. Unfortunately, I lost my last stylus.

I was really quite nervous. because although I have insurance on the phone, I am leaving for San Francisco on Monday and there is no way I would be able to get a replacement before then.

The thought of having no phone in a 'foreign, place freaked me the hell out. How did I live before the phone? How did anyone meet up or get anything done. How did I even manage to grocery shop without access to google.

One of the servers at work got hacked the other day. Who hacks a cancer treatment center?

A new Camera

I bought this camcorder today. I am totally dissatisfied with the propriety nature of the video codec. It is like a DIVX movie but is some propriety samsung SEDG format. In order to use it I need to open the file with a hex edited, change instances of SEDG to DIVX and then run it through ffmpeg to turn it into flash video. Needless to say, it suffers along the way a bit which makes me question its usefulness. The camera itself rocks. It is so fast and responsive, it is tiny, has an external lense for head mounted recording and is an MP3 player, voice recorder, and and video cam. Too bad it's so proprietary. I really think that kind of crap needs to just end. I will probably return it.

It really ends up being no better than my cell phone.
