Stargate II

July 22, 2006

A friend sent me a link that eventually led here. Now, when I originally saw Stargate, I thought for sure there’d be a SG II, but it never happened. Now the creator wants to make II and III 12 years later. But see, for the past 10 years, there’s been a series running (now two […]

December 9, 2005

Last Saturday, I had the interesting opportunity to go to not one but two holiday/year end parties. One for my wife’s company, and then topping off the night at the Yahoo! Year End Party. Because of the logistics of getting from one party to the other, we figured it was going to be tough to […]

The Tao of Coding

November 12, 2005

The sword maker… continuously polishing, honing. So must your coding be if you are to be successful. Sure you can throw stuff together and it might work, but what about later, when you have to change something. Will you remember what you were trying to do with some piece of code? Will you even be able to read it? What happens when a major revision is needed?
