Delaware Park - Google Map Programming

Here you can see Delaware Park from 1920 and 2005. Look how different the waterways are. Can you believe how much bigger the scajacuada was. No wonder it is so disgusting.

So (e:jessbob) sent me a to some aerial maps of Buffalo from the earlier part of the 1900s. I wanted to superimpose them with some google maps, but the google maps window was not large enough, not to mention that as one of my students pointed out today, the google map API does not offer geocoding services. That means that you cannot use an address in javascript and get the latitude, longtitude from it.

Well, that didn't stop me. I wrote my own full screen google map demo that looks addresses up on another site to get the latitude and longitude and then plots and focuses on the location on my full screen google map. Without making any of this overhead obvious to the end user.

Here you can see the full screen nature of it.

To visit an address simply type the address in the grey box in the upper right corner. No need to use any commas or other punctuation, simply type spaces between each part of the address e.g. "444 linwood avenue buffalo ny"

Some of the things mr. fatass ate

I ate a lot today, but not as much as I had hoped because I was busy working at Canisius. I want to gain more weight now. Maybe I should just start on steroids, lol.

Outside of these pictures, I also ate a banana, a can of pear juice, and clif bar.

When will it end

Washington marked the 2,000th American fatality of the Iraq war with a moment of silence in the Senate, the reading of the names of the fallen from the House floor, new protests and a solemn vow from President Bush not to "rest or tire until the war on terror is won."

Quoted from: 2,000th Death Marked by Silence and a Vow



I am so curious how this war on terror will eventually end. Can anyone see the war on anything as broad as terrorism ever being won? I mean it is such a broad target with no real boundary. I am also very curious how we will look back at this war on terror and on this era in general.

Is there anyone who looks back at Vietnam in a positive light?

Will we end just like Vietnam with us losing and pulling out one day? Will we make it until 20,000 troops dead. I mean can anyone see Iraq turning into West Germany or Japan. Can anyone see the end of terrorism? It seems to me that the more we try and impose our will on non-americans, the angrier the terrorists.

image

I have also noticed that more and more groups and things are being classified as terrorists which makes having a war against them even less sucessful. Maybe we need to hone our definition of terrorist to something a little more approachable.

So how do you guys see it ending. I think eventually we will just have to give up. EIther that or maybe we will get spread so think that China will decide for us.

P.S. What happend to Osama bin Laden? Is he a terrorist anymore? I bet he lives in China.

Eating a lot

It is so weird to keep eating all day. I keep making it so that every thing I eat also involves a dessert. It doesn't have to be a typical dessert it could be fruit for an example. Tonight I ate fish, edamame, rosemary pototos, apple sauce and salad followed by a coconut dessert. This is the second day in a row that I cooked for myself.

Earlier to day I ate maple oatmeal, 2 eggs, two peices of toast, a banana, and yoghurt with black berries on top. It was basically more food than I usually eat in a whole week. I know I am still missing one whole meal but I have to take it a step at a time. Tomorrow I plan on eating 3 times.

On another note, I am not banking on anything but at least made it one step further.

Hello Paul,
You have been selected for an interview for the Programmer/Analyst (#172) position which you applied for recently.



We also found a new tenant for the apartment that we rent. Things are looking brighter.

Which method is better?

I started out today sick. I think it was not really sick but my body adjusting to eating about 10 times as much as last week. It feel so weird to be constantly stuffing my face. But I am hungry non-stop after working out. It is really hard getting used to this new routine of eating more than a bowl of cereal per day.

I have a question for any of your sporty types. Mind you I have little stick arms to start out and I only weight about 135 lbs total, so keep that in mind before you laugh. Hopefully, that will change soon.

Currently I can only benchpress 35 lbs 15 times in a row before it becomes dangerous, if I drop it on my head I die, there is no safety. This is already a huge improvement over last week when I was doing 15 lbs weights.

Today I did that routine 6 times for a total of benchpressing 35lbs 90 times. I know I can lift more than this fewer times. For example, I could do 6 reps of 50lbs 5 times. So which is better to starrt out with, more weight less times or less weight more times?

I like how the people on the wall seem to be attainable weights and not superheroes. They came with the gym.

This one is my favorite.

I want to look like this guy, can it ever happen?

Body Building

I am building my body more. (e:matthew) found this treasure in the basement. We shinned it up and it sparkles american red. This is the first time I have really considered changing my body shape. I wonder what it will change about me. I see woman wondering this all the time. Has anyone had experience with their life changing due to changing body shape? It seems like it may turn out to be addictive, yet safer than drugs.

image

image

I actually bench pressed today. Who would have thought.

image

There are lots more weights to add.

According to me history of creative facilitations, this is the food that creates ideas. I wonder if there is an actual calculation to determine the candy corn to idea ratio.

I will work out

I want to get strong. I am so determined right now. It will probably only last a week but I would like to be 160 lbs. Right now I am really week and am about 135 lbs. I don't knwo if it is even possible for me to weigh 160lbs. My goal is to be that weight in March but I don't want to go to a gym. Or maybe I do.

I just want to be able to not be scared to walk around at night time by myself and to be able to beat up terry and matthew.

First my arms need serious work.
image

I used to have stomach muscles.
image

This part is ok for some reason. Maybe lots of sitting.
image

The part that needs the most work are my legs. To much sitting.
image

They should make a workout reality TV show for skinny guys who want to be buff. I would definately try to be on it. Until then I am going to make this my personal skinny guy gets buff reality TV show.

This is my target size, lol.
