pearl street brewery

Roswell had a little party at Pearl Street Brewery tonight in honor of the launching of the electronic medical records system. There was so much tasty food. Chicken fingers, artichoke hearts, mozarella balls, chicken wings, nacho dip extravaganza and an open bar.

It was well worth the walk over here. It started with the DaVinci code and now a coworkers asked, "Do we believe in god." Where is this gonna go?

Hiking at Zoar Valley and Xmen

We went hiking at Zoar Valley followed by seeing Xmen and going to sleep. Sorry (e:robin) that I didn't see any of your messages, I thought you would still be around today. Hope everything goes good on your trip down south.

Zoar Valley was nice as usual, there were a million people to the point where there were no more parking spots in the Point Peter lot. I was so summery out, actually warm enough to swim around in the creek. I didn't bring my phone so I didn't take any pics but matt brought his camera. Hopefully, he will post some pics. I stole this one off his camera.

Afterwards we went to go see Xmen, which was the worst piece of crap movie I ever saw. I mean generlaly I hate movies but then I went to see V for Vendetta and thought it was pretty great so I decided to give Xmen a chance. What a waste of $30 for the three of us. I prefered the stupid Silent Hill movie. At least it had a plot. I would never watch another xmen movie again. Special effects do not substitute for the plot of a movie.

Wegmans and blood pressure

Made a quick trip to wegman's in order to pick up some food for the week. I was also out of protein powder and cliff bars.

While we were there I decided to check out my blood pressure which is normally extremely low. Seemed a little high but I tested it again two minutes later and it was normal. I don't trust that machine but I do want to know why my bloodpressure was like 10-15 points higher than usual. Is it that cholestrol laden protein powder?

Does anyone else go grab a magazine for the checkout adventure? This time I grabbed mobile computing magazine which I paged through with the equivalent passion a suburban fervor teenage girl has for a fashion magazine. "Will I still look nerd trendy enough with my laptop and phone through 2007 or do I need a (insert explicative) model to maintain my geek suave."

In the magazine I saw disney is making cell phones for kids that allow the parents to track the children from their phones. Two words: creepy and cancer. Those kids are gonna have brain tumors the size of lemons by the time they are 15.

Thanks to everyone for coming to the party last night. Who has pictures to post? I think everyone was quite thoroughly inebriated which turned out to be fun. I stayed up with the squireels, (e:robin) and soon to be epeep sarah-paul till about 5am.

Clams taste good at wegmans but these kind freak me the hell out. On eitm ewe were in vacation where they only had these funky clams. It was very dissapointing. I mean I love seafood but these ones remidn me of that Klinmgon dish QAGH (WIKIPEDIA - qagh) - lots of info here -

(e:terry) really wants a passion flower (WIKIPEDIA - passion flower) plants but they are $16.99

Inky Caps Eat Plants

The inkycap mushrooms in our yard are destroying everything near them. I have never seen them be so killer. It kind of looks like a miny gang of zombies. I wonder if the plants have nightmares about them.

The Crazy Lady on Elmwood

The crazy lady on elmwood was extremely riled up today. Frankly, she seems like she is starting to be dangerous. She was screaming at people and got in the coop and started freaking out. Then she marched outside and started screaming at the top of her lungs. I recorded a bit but then decided to get the hell away from here. (e:mike), it the one that freaked out that you weren't fighting in Iraq.

Anyways, she seems like she really need help, like maybe she forgot to take her medication but I think everyone is so afraid of her that she will never get help. I can't imagine what she must feel like. Does anyone know her story?





::DOWNLOAD SOUND::



After the recording some guy out front of the laundromat told her to shut up and she freaked out on him too. You can hear him say shut up at the end of the recording. She told him that he doesn't even care that he ripped her off and stole her money because he is just going to get in his starship and fly away. She has seriously lost it.

Coop food is too damn expensive. I think I am done shopping there again. I can't afford a mansion and yuppy food. It's one or the other.
I mean it cost about $30 for some fruit and a couple thai soup packs.

Javascript Prototypes Part II

Here is a good example I wrote of javascript prototypes that extend other objects. (e:paul,4369) was part one and both were in reference to (e:zobar,59)

[box]<html>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
/*create a sound object for making sounds*/
sound = function(noise){
    this.setNoise(noise);
}

/*add new prototype to output the noise */
sound.prototype = {
    /*set the noise echoed on sound.out)*/
    setNoise : function(noise){
        this.noise = noise || 'plain sound';
    },
    
    /*output the noise*/
    out : function(numTimes){
        var noise ='"';
        for(x=0;x<numTimes;x++){
            noise += this.noise;
            if(x<numTimes-1){ noise +=', ';}
        }
        return noise+'!"';
    }
}

/*create a animal object for making animals that make sounds*/
animal = function(name, noise){
    this.setName(name);
    this.vocals = new sound(noise);
}

animal.prototype = {

    /*set the name of the animal*/
    setName : function(name){
        this.name = name || 'another animal';
    },
    
    /*prototype to wrap sound.out*/
    talk : function(times){
        alert(this.name +" said "+this.vocals.out(times));
    },
    
    /*prototype to wrap sound.setNoise*/
    changeVocals : function(noise){
        mySquirrel.vocals.setNoise(noise);
    }
    
}
/*instantiate an animal ( a squirrel that barks) and make it talk */
mySquirrel = new animal('squirrelio', 'bark');
mySquirrel.talk(3);
mySquirrel.changeVocals('ruff');
mySquirrel.talk(4);
</script>
</body>
</html>
[/box]

A lot of people have come up with different methods for dealing with inheritance. Here is one page that explains it and here is another that abstracts it a bit.

Once you are into the prototyping system you can make your own system to make extending and inheriting easier.

Javascript Prototypes

Believe it or not, I love javascript so much.

SIDENOTE ON SUREBERT
If you want to use surebert for any AJAX stuff at artvoice, feel free. It allows you to easily post data to any page. Here is the non-compressed js version so you can see what is going on.

Prototypes
(e:zobar,59) if you already know this then maybe this is a waste because no one else is going to read it besides maybe (e:enknot) who already knows this because we talk shop all day at work, but in case you haven't thought about it, you can write very extensible objects in javascript using protypes.

In fact, I would argue that the prototype if the basis of complicated OOP in javascript. The prototype is applied to every instance of the object without having to copy the function as it is when declared as a function within the constructor.

Here is how I would write it

Greeter = function(yourName){
    this.yourName = yourName;
}

Greeter.prototype.getTimeOfDay = function(timeOfDay){
    alert('Good ' + timeOfDay + ', ' + this.yourName);
}

greetZ = new Greeter('Zobar');
greetP = new Greeter('Paul');

greetZ.getTimeOfDay('afternoon');//'Good afternoon, Zobar'
greetZ.getTimeOfDay('evening');// 'Good evening, Zobar'
greetZ.getTimeOfDay('evening');// 'Good evening, Paul'
[/box]

Because everything is an object in javascript, if you have mutliple prototypes for an object you can easily write them like below which look very neat and organized when used with large objects.

[box]
Greeter = function(yourName){
    this.yourName = yourName;
}

//javascript object notation for attaching multiple protoypes to an object.Although you could write each one as Greeter.prototype.name of function, I think when have lots of protypes this looks neater. You can also add any of properties as a prototype. In this case I am also creating a property called job. that can be referred to as instanceName.job e.g. greetZ.job you can even attach protoype arrays this way

Greeter.prototype = {

    'job' : 'programmer',
    
    getTimeOfDay : function(timeOfDay){
        alert('Good ' + timeOfDay + ', ' + this.yourName);
    },
    
    getRandNumber : function(min,max){
        min = min || 0;
        max = max || 100;
        alert(Math.floor(Math.random()*max+min));
    },
    
    sayHello : function(){
        alert("Hello, "+this.yourName);
    }
}

greetZ = new Greeter('Zobar');
greetP = new Greeter('Paul');

greetZ.getTimeOfDay('afternoon');//'Good afternoon, Zobar'
greetZ.sayHello();// 'Hello, Zobar'
greetZ.getRandNumber(10,30);// 'Good evening, Paul'

My house at 3:30am

At about 4:40 I decided to stop programming and head off to bed. The sugar glider seemed really unjhappy with this decision. Maybe it is because I shut off al the lights and she was hunting for ants. She ate one of those giant tanker ones. It was fun to watch her captture it. So when i wen tto bed she started barking like crazy. It is really as loud as a dog.

Terrible Feeling

I feel the beginning of being sick on the night I wanted to go see Dieselboy and Dj Dara at the OPM lounge. I guess it cost $15 which was kind of expensive considering there would be very little dance space I am sure but it is probably the last opportunity I would have to see that combo in my life. I guess I have to start giving shit up in order to pay for the mansion.
