Journal 10,000

I couldn't wait any more. It was at 9999 for like 5 minutes. I am so excited that the site has made it this far. I hope that in the near future we will expand it even further we some PR help from (e:ladycroft) and (e:mike) in addition to a whole slew of new mobile features.

I also think we should expand the radio programming but we need djs to record programs or host them live.

My main goal is going to be to make more fun interfaces and many more mobile features. Maybe we can convince some mobile dealer to give us a group discount! Hope to see you all at the party on saturday.

IE PNG javascript fix and

After a year of using a self made PHP solution for handling transparent jpeg in MSIE I switched over to client side solution I wrote in javascript. It saves the server the xtra work and it allows the cache to work properly by serving one identical image to both browsers and just fixing it afterward in IE. I mean why should the server fo extra work for the broken browser. I think the if people are going to use lame crappy browsers it reasonable to make the crappy browser work harder.

You should see a quote with no background color here.


I also posted my first contribution to today. I would have contributed before but I didn't realize it was so easy to post a comment.

jim's steakout price hike

Jim's steakout got rid of their chicken finger club and
replaced it with a chicken finger sub minus bacon for the same price
that used to include bacon.

Now you have to pay an extra 75 cents for bacon! That brings the price
of a chicken finger club and a drink to $10.60 with tax. Elmwood is
becomming so unreasonable these days. Rent, food, everything is
skyrocketing in price. Soon I will have to leave elmwood and move to SF
if they are gonna end up being the same price anyways.

Microsoft Maps

Wow, this is the biggest ripoff on google maps , they even use the same exact color scheme if not the same exact maps. The aerial photos for Buffalo are old and black and white but otherwise the application is pretty nice. The fly around feature is nice, you just click on the compass feature. The advantage microsoft will have is that they can easily incorporate this with their current business products. I wish I could work on stuff like this all the time.

Southernyankee Visit - Out at Cozumel

Last night after the amazing dinner at Shogun, we got a call that (e:southernyankee) was in town for her friend lisa's birthday. By the tim ewe got back from dinner and out of the house it was about 1am. We met them at Cozumel on elmwood and had a great time gossiping, taking pictures, catching up.

(e:mike) missed us because he had his phone turned off. I think the same thing happend the last time (e:southernyankee) was in town and staying with us! This week is going to be crazy because (e:hodown) is also coming for a visit starting wednesday and staying with us. I am supposed to be in charge of finding a date for her. So if anyone is looking for a date, give me a shoutout.

Last night I also saw matt who I went to high school with. He is supposed to be moving north west. I hope it works out for him, I am so freakin; jealous of the wanderin gtypes, although I guess I get to have stability which is also kind of nice in it's own way.

This might look familiar - nokia fix

I stole this image off of (e:shawnr)'s mobile blog


I was going to make a derivitive work but it was against his license, lol. Anyways, the real reason this is here is to prove that I fixed the nokia picture phone bug. After hours of studying the jpeg format and playing with a hex editor, I wrote a nice PHP class to test for and fix images from certain nokia phones that write bad jpegs. Shame on you nokia for making such nonsense files. Basically any open source program that was based on a certaing jpeg library could not deal well with them including GIMP and GD, as well as, many other programs. At least now people with mobile blogs can use there nokia pics again! You can find it in p:labs if you need a copy yourself.

Searching the web

Has anyone seen google directories before, I somehow had missed them completely.


This totally revolutionizes the way you surf the web.

I am hopelessly working on a jpeg fixing filter for some corrupt jpegs from a cell phone. WHile I was poking around at the structure of a jpeg file I found this windows command-line program that strips out meta-data from jpegs. I ran it on a photoshop saved jpeg and it took 10k off the image. Thats a lot of extraneous data.

Here are some important magic numbers for file types
