On top of Krannert

November 2nd, 2005

Today I scaled Krannert, why? We had Physics 436 on the Amphitheater there today. Afterwards I took some nice pictures.

Myst V

October 4th, 2005

Well, I got Myst V, End of Ages last week. It was only a little bit more disappointing than Myst IV. I finished it in two days, while It took me three for Myst IV. I calculate I spent a total of 9 hours in game.

The hardest puzzle? Well, that’d be a spoiler wouldn’t it. It did take a night’s sleep to figure out 🙂 .

Riven still owns all of the others in the series.
To sum up:
Riven > Myst >> Myst III > Myst IV > Myst V.

Cocoa is fun.
Mmmm… Objective-C.

I’ll write more when I can actually, um, Code.

Leaks are very prevalent in my code. But I can get some stuff to work, sort of.

Broken Rant

September 1st, 2005

I have come to the conclusion that my DVD/CD burner can no longer read commercially pressed CDs. Burned CDs seem to work, but not pressed CDs. DVDs of both varieties also seem to work. I did send the computer in for repairs a month ago. However, after finally receiving it three weeks later they told me they could find nothing wrong with the Drive. Brilliant. I just tested 7 Pressed CDs, 6 of which are brand new. And guess what? 100% failure rate.

Now I have to find another month to go without my computer, or spend $100 on a temporary solution.

I recently converted RSS readers, from NetNewsWire Lite to Vienna. It’s open source (Apache 2.0 license), opposed to NetNewsWire, which is proprietary.

Vienna has all the features I care about, and if I ever feel like adding more, I could. Once I learn Cocoa, that is.

Server Advances

August 28th, 2005

I’m getting more and more fun stuff everyday.

Today, I just set up https and WebDav, resulting in secure WebDav. Very fun. Now I should be able to access my files from any computer, not just the ones with a sftp client on them.

There seems to be some conflicts between the WebDav and WordPress as it keeps asking me to log in to WebDav for some reason. I think I’ll figure out what’s happening eventually.

WordPress Dash seems to have been broken by a recent WordPress update as well. I’ll have to see what’s wrong with it, too.

Mighty Mouse

August 6th, 2005

I bought an Apple Mighty Mouse a few days ago.

It seems very nice, I especially like the scroll ball, it is very intuitive. The right click is a bit strange in that you can’t touch the left side of the mouse while attempting to right click.

Aside from that one small quirk it’s an excellent mouse.
