A Night In The City and House Capades

Last night I hung out with (e:mike) and (e:terry) and dave. We went out around chippewa.

There was something crazy going on around chippewa. There were police everywhere blocking all of the streets. It wasn't even just chippewa.

This image shows all the police lights although you cannot really see anythign but the light but it is pretty.

image

They were blocking parts of Washington and franklin too. There was nothing about it on the news website today or in the paper.

The video shows more details.



Check out this sad empty dance floor at underground. Fo rme that place died when the moved the couches to near the outside door about 2 years ago.



Has anyone ever watched House Capades on FOX on sundays. They guarantee that if they show your house on the show they will sell it or buy it theseleves with 30 days. That is a pretty amazing offer. Anyhow, their web site is quite confusing and I have no idea how to browse more info about the houses they showed so I wrote to them. I hope it helps them out.

Rick,
I got your contact info from the contact information link on housecapades.com. I visited the housecapades website today after the airing of your show on Fox 29 in Buffalo. I found the navigation a bit confusing but what was more confusing was how to find information about the houses that I saw on the show.

When I click the Featured Homes Link I am presented with a form requiring my contact inforation and asking which house I am interested in. Unfortunately, the on air segent which gives information at the end of a house showing did not appear to present any sort of identification number that I recollected.

As a professional web design analyst and programmer, I believe this is a fatal flaw in the design of your site and probably turns away people who may otherwise be interested. It also prevents people who missed the on air show from being able to browse the houses at a more convenient time.

I would suggest at least a photo gallery /stats list recapping each of the houses that you have shown on the last on air segment and perhaps even a mapping utility to visually search through the listings. Both technologies are trivial to maintain as they can be fully automated.

Thank you for your time,
Paul Visco

Videos From Today

My new camera is pretty sweet. It even remixes your pictures and videos into emotionally driven slide shows with music and everything. Kind of cuts out the middle man. I love programs that can do stuff like that. Ate at Palm Tree on Allen. Their curry goat is insanely delicious but you seriously have to be careful of bone fragment. I can't imagine how sharp the knife is that they use to hack the bones into splinters and cubes.

image

Afterwards, (e:enknot) came over and we shot the shit for a while waiting for (e:lilho) and (e:tina) to come over.



Once they got there (e:lilho) and (e:enknot) argued about the prospects nick being in tony's band.
image

Just imagine sarah being this loud and excited for three hours.



Tina spilled coke on my rug and Sarah vacuumed it up with the green machine that we got for our housewarming from my cousins Jennifer and Scott. No, not that kind of coke.

The green machine worked so well, and (e:lilho) worked it also. There is a video here so you can see for yourself.

image



Then they gave (e:enknot) a ride home.

Terry being cute

Wow my journal is way more fun with video.

Ate lobster and went to the gym

I went back to the gym tonight. I kind of miss it. Unfortunately, (e:terry) my gym partner has had it with the gym so I don't know how much more gym will be in our lives. I would like to start going three times a week though.

When I got home I cooked some yummy lobster and ramen noodles. I love that combination. It is so ridiculous that the lobster costs $12 and the ramen noodles cost $0.15 but they honetsly compliment each other well.

Caught a lot of mice with our new humane mouse trap that traps them inside so we can keep them a freakin' pets? (e:matthew) refuses to put them outside because they could "freeze to death in winter" They are freakin' cute though but 6 is really enough. I am really glad we started catching them before it got out of control. I would like to feed them to the squirrel's but (e:matthew) wont let me. The squirrels love to eat things like mice and baby birds.

windows propaganda and meat

I am at a windows propaganda speech. Norhing is new. They actally just pimped out tabbed browsing and wigdets as radical new features. Too bad konfabulator, apple from them, opera, google, yahoo and firfox have already done all that.

I guess I have to give them credit for their mobile operatung sysrem. It seems pretty good and I'm typing this on it right now.

I am going to post the whole video to youtube later for your viewing displeasure.
image

The video is still "evaluating"


At roswell they actually had some sick pork. It just smelled wrong. It was the first time I disliked their food. I considered actually being vegetarian again for a second.
image

The other camera
image

However, this veggie meat looks even sicker.
image

(e:eknot) stayed after to ask the microsft guy lots of questions, then we drilled him about the secuirty hole with the clipboard viewing code. He didn't know about it.
image

Memory management in vista sounds insane.
image

There was so much traffic on the 290 on the way there. It felt like being in a real city. Maybe there is always traffic and I just never leave my neighborhood. It is weird working only a block away from work. It is like I never leave the microcosm much anymore.

Long Day

I spent a lot of today retrofitting old code. I love the feeling of refactoring old code. It is quite exciting like getting a haircut.

Anyways, I was visiting the smoothy demo for surebert when I came across this collage. if you remember, smoothy basically takes a web address, eats all the pics from the page and then displays it as a gallery. It also gives you the code to display the gallery on your own site.

The default view is cnn.com and for some reason there was the picture of a woman with a crown on at the far right. What can that possibly be about.

image

I have this insane desire to earn more money but I am stuck with not enough hours in the day to manage anything. I wish I had an investor with connections as I have several good ideas which just need funding.

New Camera and New Gather

First gather has been updated. Now you can see what you uploaded and delete or download it as well as organize little colored post its in your login view. You can drag them around and change their color by clicking the little rainbow dots to sort them in your view. The system remembers where they belong from loging to login - even across computers.

Today I played with my new wifi compatible camera. It seems pretty cool but at the same time I am not convinced about the quality of the images yet. It says it takes pictures at 7.2 megapixels but I have been taking most picture at 640x480 for my journal and the pics are not that great at that resolution.

It does great with video





Here are the pics of zoar valley. We went there with Anika. Basically, it was late so we just walked out on point peter and climbed down the cliff and then back up before retiring. It was a real workout.

Along the edge I found this footprint way on the edge of like a 150 foot dropoff. I wonder if it was someones last footprint. I mean a bunch of poeple have died here.

Squirting a Song - The zunesquirt

You will never believe that Microsoft chose to name the act of sharing a song with Zune over wifi - "squirting." Yes squirting. If you type squirt (GOOGLE - squirt) or squirting (GOOGLE - squirting) into google you can see there are a multitude of other meaning that all deal with sex or shitting. I wonder if those sites will be sad when wireless music sharing comes up first. Why did they not call it "zuning" which would have tied in better with the name of the product?

image

How funny would it be if you got a virus from unprotected squirting?

Quoted from newsweek

Nov. 27, 2006 issue - Have you squirted a song yet? That's the question Microsoft hopes your friends will ask you as you ponder which digital music player to acquire. Although you are more likely to buy an iPod this season-something even Microsoft admits-the software giant from Redmond is running a huge marketing campaign that it hopes will plant some seeds of doubt. After all, iPods don't squirt songs. And Microsoft's new player, Zune, does.



The catch is that the squirt is fast-drying-in three days it goes away. Or, if the recipient plays it three times within that period, it evaporates after the third spin. This is because Microsoft cut a lousy deal with the record labels, which still regard innovative digital schemes as potential piracy threats, as opposed to potential sales boosters. My guess is that people will be turned off that the songs expire so quickly.



Here is an article that someone has written on roughly drafted about the zune.
