The second evening/weekend meeting will be held on Saturday the 26th from 2-4pm at the Common Grounds Cafe. It should be a good time of caffeine and geekery. Parking is located behind the building off of Grand Blvd.
If you need directions then see this.
I know I’m a little late here but I just got the pics copied so I could upload them. I took the family to the parade this year and their just happened to be a zombie march. This post goes out for my friend jkeyes0 (aka Jordan).
Tomorrow my daughter (Ariana) is being baptised. She made a profession of faith on Friday June 27th. We had been discussing my dad and when he had died. Just before bed she told my wife that she wanted to be a Christian. We had a talk to discuss what it really meant to be a Christian and was she ready. We wanted to make sure that it was not just an emotional decision based on the things happening that day. During our talk it was apparent that it was not just emotions and that it was the real thing. Needless to say my wife and I are very excited. This is going to top off an awesome week for Ariana because she just got back from a week at CentriKid (church camp).
I plan on posting some photos of her baptism and my son’s soon. My son (Noah) was baptised on Easter Sunday this year. That makes 2 down and 1 to go 🙂
As long as I have been posting to this blog I have only made ONE post regarding Microsoft. On 11/2/2006 I posted about a Microsoft cleanup utility (see it here). Almost every other post I have made is regarding Linux or something else that is FLOSS. The weird part is that the Microsoft post is the most popular one on my blog. I think that about just about every day I get hits from people that are searching for this app. If you want to test it Google “microsoft cleanup utility“. The third return is a link to my blog 🙂
It has been some time since I used SPE for python work. Since I have recently started doing coding I wanted to give SPE another chance. I must say that I really like it. The only issue with it that I continue to have is that there is no print option for the code. I from time to time like to print out a copy of the code that I am working on and to do that with SPE I have to open the code with another piece of software and print from it. I do like the automatic UML work that is done.
There were a lot of comments with my last browser sync post recommending Foxmarks. I have been using Foxmarks now for a while and I like it for what it does. A few days after the last post the Weave devs released a new version that had some nice upgrades. The down side is that it does not work with 64bit Linux / Firefox. Guess I will just have to wait a little longer to get Weave working on my box.
Any one that talks to me will eventually hear me talk about Python (even though I am not very good at it yet). I recently came across a few really good books on the subject. If you are intersted, or know someone that might be, check them out at http://homepage.mac.com/s_lott/books.
Some other good Python books are:
There are plenty of books out there this is just some of the ones I like.
