>So I’ve been playing with the links – you may have noticed. They still update automatically, but need to rewrite the scrolling code so it’s imbedded. I’m trying to rewrite anything iframe to javascript and get things to tie in a little better then the current section format. I’ve realized the blocks don’t really seem to go together but screen size has come a long way since my “throw compatability to the wind” 1024+ super-wide background. So content still flows here and there but lately it’s all about how to better present it. I’m in need of extending the text…

Windows 7 Game Explorer Manual Customization How To

Windows 7 Games Explorer Manual Customization How ToWindows 7 has removed the ability from Games Explorer to Customize out of the box. It’s not impossible to do, however – it just takes some finangling and registry knowledge. All of your Games Explorer shortcuts are stored here:%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\GameExplorer If you have games installed you should see several folders with very long names that start with {######…Each of these is the unique game ID used by Windows to synch the icons and commands that appear in the Games Explorer to the actual EXE that runs the game.

>Battlefield 1942 Is the Worst Game for PC

> I had downloaded Battlefield 1942 for the PS3 a while back, shelled out the $15 and it’s relatively good. Destructable environments basic gameplay on what Battlefield should be (not Bad Company) and decent graphics for a console. I was especially excited about the prospect of battling cross-platform. PS3, XBOX, and PC all in the same realm? Sign me up to scalp them with my mouse! In any case the PC version was still forthcoming, but after trying the demo I am abhorred by what they provided for the PC version. No widescreen resolutions, vile texture quality, simplistic scenes, it’s…

Potential Remixes

Here’s some tracks with potential for remixes: Jason Derulo – Watcha SayBritney Spears – WomanizerDeadmau5 – Ghosts N StuffI Remember – Deadmau5 & KaskadeRon Reeser & Dan Sanz ft Myah – EverythingBassboosa – Wicked Game I’m especially a fan of remixing remixes with originals, a la new verse with old refrain, or mix in an additional verse from the old version with the new background. and here’s a couple other guilty pleasures I couldn’t resist:Owl City – FirefliesLMFAO – I’m In Miami BitchMickey Avalon – My Dick

Rainy Morning

I woke early this morning, a cold rainy November day. It wasn’t out of preference, there’s a big change to the phone system at work today. It was still very dark, cold, and I could hear the rain pouring down outside. I didn’t have to go into the office, which is great, a much better way to do work on the Saturday. Besides, making important business decisions in pajamas and disheveled hair always makes me feel good. I’m scheduled to stop by Bryans to assist with the brew today and hoping we can resolve this issue in enough time to…

>Windows 7 Initial Performance Review

>6 installations later I have a working copy of Windows 7 with valid RAID, SATA, Chipset, Video, and Sound drivers. I was very careful this time, doing only one thing at a time and restarting after a change to confirm. I was a bit more cavileer when I was under the impression my errors could be undone. The restore feature was not able to handle the driver change for vital components so keep that in mind when you’re upgrading. Vista had similar problems, I wasn’t able to install it until SP1. My first step once getting SLi working was to…

Windows 7 – Don’t Rush It.

Windows 7 – Don’t Rush It. That’s a cautionary statement, a metaphor, and a realization. I had a LOT of issues with this installation and I’m not even at a point where I can benchmark. 3… maybe 4 installations at this point and I think I’ve finally got it. I put in another HD so I could avoid RAID issues and I still run into them. My motherboard has 10 SATA ports 4 on one SATA controller, 6 on nVidia SATA RAID. I avoided trying to bring over the RAID right away, instead having a single HD on the ontroller…

The Digg section has left the building.

Digg did away with it’s inline blog publishing, they only support Twitter and Facebook now. Go fig… actually pulling away from the “real” web (in my opinion). I think it’s far too easy to rely on the sites which write your page for you. Short simple posts make it so easy just to type a thought and leave it hanging, never to be fully explored. Facebook won’t even be seen by anyone if they don’t check today, and in some cases within the hour depending on your group of friends. In any case I’ve adapted this space for music, makes…

Gavin pt 1

Those 4 days went by slowly. I went to work on Monday but that night had Nicole feeling very anxious about the baby’s arrival. I worked from home on Tuesday expecting we’d be going in at any time but I worked through the entire day without much incident. Nicole was tired, very pregnant and a couple days past her due date so anything seemed like it could be the time. We went food shopping because we finally had to. We had been avoiding because we didn’t want things to spoil if we had the baby and didn’t get back to…

Baby Baby Baby (I Know I Drive You Crazy)

So the baby is on the way, 4 days until the due date. The baby’s room is finished, floor sanded, resealed, walls painted, and furnished. Nicole and I both wanted a braided rug as we both have fond memories of racing matchbox cards along the braids. It’s a built in racing track. I remember setting up my blocks in a track shape and using the braids as built in lanes. We settled on a nice braided cloth one from Thorndike Mills in Palmer. I’d say they’re the de facto manufacturer of braided rugs mainly because they are the only ones…

Counting Down

The baby is coming in two months (give or take) and I’m feeling a bit… stressed?I’m excited for the actual situation, but how I’m going to turn everything around in that short of time is a bit daunting. I have until the beginning of July to finish everything for school. Once class is done and I think I’m in good shape there but the other one I’ve fallen quite a bit farther behind. I’m just starting on a paper that should have been done a week or two ago and I don’t even know where to start. We’ve got the…

Got an idea to pull in my twittering to the sidebar. I know it exists already but knd of looking forward to writing it myself. Javascript is like a baseball glove. My plan is to pull the whole page (unless there's an RSS) via javascript and then find the start tag of the twitted text and pull each consecutive line to a string until reaching the end tag. I could then adapt the script for a bunch of stuff.
