Tackiest jewlery ever

I could talk about how riddled with ridiculousness their whole
convention is but I just can't get over this diamond navy/usmc broche.

Okay that and the fact that Sarah Palin's son is being deployed to
Iraq on September 11th. How dramatic. Can't they finally end the
September 11th/Iraq connection. I hope he discovers to weapons of
mass destruction.

Dead rabbit

I pretty much have isolated myself from everything in this giant
surebert flashgate in AS3 via flex rewrite. Anyways, I was thinking
about it intensely on the way to work and I managed to step in gum.
Luckily, I did not step in this rabbit.

Oh and I finished the flex thing.

Just Testing Chrome

Looks like file uploads work with surebert and flash via chrome . That was the one thing I was worried about the most. Cnan you tell I am on a windows machine. look, this is only one of four pictures I have on it, lol.

Seems like it uses a lot more memory than firefox. From what I can see in the task manager it has four open processes between 20-30MB and only two tabs are open.

image
You know what it does not have is full page (media and all) zoom. I freakin love that. Oh, and a mac client ;(

New Google Chrome Browser

According to macrumors.com

Google announced today that they would be releasing a new open source web browser called Google Chrome. The new browser will be available for download as a beta starting tomorrow.



All I can say is fuck - i hate the idea of dealing with yet another new browser. With IE 8 coming along, and the new html 5 safari and firefox - did we really need yet another browser. Its weird because I am usually all about diversity. And I love the idea of standards. If all of the groups adhere to the standards or make thing similar it will be fine. Unfrotunatrly, each of the players involved - microsoft, apple, mozilla, and now google - is not only going to want to support the standards - they are also going to want to differentiate in order to offer new features and seem gain market share. To me it just makes Flex development all that much more appealing. Luckily, it is abased on webkit - like safari so at least there will be something in common. Unfortunately, they are using their own javascript engine. That means that every browser will have a unique javascript engine and that various version of the browsers will have different engines. Should be fun. Really what it means is that all the libraries are going to get bigger. Which sucks but then again broadband is broader and the new engines will be faster.

I wonder if the world will switch to chrome all at once.

Flash Debug Player

I have been doing a lot of flash/javascript interface development and am using the flash debug player for development. It is funny what type of messgaes that other sites send to the debug console.

At somepoint today I found this in the logs


1
NO YOU SUCK! DON'T TAKE THE LORD'S NAME IN VAIN
Stop All Animation
Stop All Animation



I also found that javascript was sending my location was being sent a bunch.

var tf_partner_attributes={122: ['','',''],107: ['','','']};
var tf_zip = '14263';
var tf_city = 'Buffalo';
var tf_state = 'NY';
var tf_pub_attributes = ['#F78200',false,1,true,false,true,2,5,true,'1.0em' ];
var tf_on_fly_flag=0;
tf_show_fly_ads(tf_ads);

Three Meat Birthday for Mike

We celebrated (e:mike)'s birdthay dinner at my parents house. My mom made a delcious three meat meal consisting of shrimp, chicken and steak.
image

For the first time I decided to try all three in one forkfull, which was quite delicious.

image

Also for the first time ever (e:mike) ate with a big fork! Since he was a child he always insisted on eating with the little fork. Even at 6'3" he still ate with a mini fork. Now that he is 25 my parents said it is time to eat with a big boy fork. I don't think he was ready, lol. Here is looking sad when confronted with the big fork situation.

image

And we also ate the bacon chocolate I got back in vegas (e:paul,45426) It was very delicious chocolate, sprinkled with bacon bits inside.

Sarah Palin and Wikipedia

Okay, I totally don't care about Sarah Palin but I did find this story from boingboing.net about an NPR story by Yuki Nogushi of interest because it involves the use of technology, specifically wikipedia, to shape peoples ideas about the candidate. How many of you looked her up on wikipedia after you found out she was announced? Probably a lot of people.

Well, it turns out:

Someone - and apparently it was just one person - felt like the existing biography wasn't appropriate for a vice-presidential candidate. On Friday, 15 minutes before the rumor that John McCain had picked Palin as his running mate, a Wikipedia editor discovered 30 mostly favorable changes had been made to the Alaska governor's profile.

She was called "a politician of eye-popping integrity" and sections on her participation in a beauty pageant and her alleged use of influence to get her former brother-in-law fired were diminished.



The same person editing McCain. That was probably the most affective way of shaping people ideas without spending a dime.

However, damn that thing is busy. Look at the history on it
It seems like everytime you look at it, it is different.

Colorfree

This guy is not at all what I would expect for the president of the
NAACP. I would have figured you needed to be colored to be the
president of the national association for the advancement of colored
people. Maybe it includes Italians now.
