Steelers 13, Baltimore 16 (OT)

Suffice to say, Tommy Maddox and Bill Cowher earn my wrath for the day. I don't have much to say about them other than the obvious. Our running game sucked because in no way was Tommy Maddox feared. One of every ten passes the guy throws is picked off. One of every ten times he […]

Those who IMed regarding that "Big Cocoa Project" mentioned earlier this month should IM me again today. The person I chose to do it has yet to complete the first stage (just a few mockups), and if I do no hear from him today, I'm going to go with someone else. Availability today (for at […]

Terminal in JavaScript

It's a terminal written in JavaScript. For some reason, hitting backspace deletes two characters for me…

Question: We've probably all got some software that's "above us" in terms of our skills - software we intended to learn but simply never have. What's yours? My Answer: Adobe Illustrator. I understand the concept, but I'm simply not an illustrator. That makes the times I do need to use it (like, for laying out […]

Erie Blogs Turkey Bowl

I wonder if I'm eligible for the 1st Annual Erie Blogs Turkey Bowl. I hope so. I also hope that by posting this, someone will contact me to let me know if I'm eligible. 🙂

A Better NSLog()

Nothing could be better than this NSLog();, but, well, forget it: I'm unable to make this funny. MLog improves on Cocoa's NSLog() by adding in the name of the source file and the line number from which the NSLog() call is made. In other words, MLogString(@"logged!"); produces: 2005-02-13 20:06:07.582 MyApp[1465] main.m:15 logged! Helpful! Which, sadly, […]

QotD: Birthday This Year

Question: What do you want for your next birthday? My Answer: Nothin'. Actually I'm looking to take an early trip to Myrtle Beach or something to play some golf, so the option and ability to do that would be nice. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments […]

TextMate, Redux of the Redux

In BBEdit, you can find and replace tabs and carriage returns quite easily. Hell if I could figure out how to do that in TextMate today. \t and \r certainly didn't work, and copying and pasting tabs and carriage returns into a single line NSTextField is not my idea of a good time. I keep […]

2005 First Snow

Yes, it's happened.

Mac OS X Drag Delay

I've set mine to 1 millisecond, thanks to Mr. Knight: defaults write -g NSDragAndDropTextDelay -int 1 or sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist NSDragAndDropTextDelay -int 1

QotD: XBox 360

Question: Are you getting an XBox 360? My Answer: Nah. I'll wait for the Revolution (whatever they end up calling it) and/or the PS3. I did, however, enjoy seeing one ripped apart and analyzed. You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

NSLog();’s MT Database

Prior to optimizing tables: 42.4 MB After optimizing tables: 15.4 MB (as reported by phpMyAdmin) I don't go around optimizing all the time, but that sure seems like an awfully large improvement. Perhaps it's all the spamments that I removed recently (by visiting my blog's MovableType (admin) home page).

Chat Transcript Manager

Unsanity has released Chat Transcript Manager, a project I believe Slava was working on (and off, and on, and off) for the past few years. I remember trying a chat log viewer at least 16 months ago… Anyway, it's great if you use iChat. I'm not particularly thrilled with what it adds to Adium X […]

Mario Kart DS Friend Code

My friend code is 068 778 985 194. Jason's is 416 671 313 392. Jeff's is 455 325 982 404. Brad's 116 023 594 595. Steven's is 021 534 302 069. Justin Williams, who hasn't managed to blog his friend code, can be found at 223 397 733 446. When I initially formatted my friend […]

TextMate, the Redux

When I last wrote about TextMate, I commented on its lack of preferences and, essentially, shelved the idea of using TextMate because of it. Today I grabbed the latest beta and gave it a whirl. I was perhaps 30 minutes away from buying it when I decided to try one more thing: my AppleScript for […]
