The Dev Guide rides again. I finally sorted some longstanding chaos in my life. Last night was my first visible work I was able to tackle. Then also I don't have to go it alone, my first talk with Steven van der Baan says we are going to get along great. There should be very few instances that we disagree and feel strongly enough to argue about something.

I have always been jealous of the smooth experience of RDP on Windows machines, they just plain got it right. I have not been able to replicate that feeling with VNC or SSH -x or or or... on my linux machines in any of the times I have tried to run a GUI over the network.

Maybe the umpteenth time is the charm with X2Go...

I can't echo this enough. I like the job, not the administrative overhead I had to manage.

I recently had the opportunity to work with an exceptionally great agency, http://interwebstaffing.com . +Ryan Lazuka  kept the ball rolling, coached me on things that I should get under my hat to make the best impression I could, and is going to handle the parts I don't even like going forward. I am all for someone taking a reasonable piece of the pie and handling the 'not programming' that lets me do what I do best.

Today, I'm not a 10xer as the article describes. But, I try awful hard to keep abreast and do quality work. I ask not for a lighter burden, but broader shoulders...

So, three days of TCL shell scripting down the tubes.

I got a .xlsx file, used a command line converter to turn it into a .csv.
Then line by line using the TCLlib csv module I manipulated the columns.

I find out the source, which I can now pull, starts as a tab-seperated value file.

I still need to manipulate it. But getting the conversion on a low memory VM was... fun. Oh, and all the comma-separated value code I wrote. Mostly unusable. Fortunately, now, the only tabs in the files are the separators and I can use basic regular expressions... Whereas there had been extra commas between the comma separators in some text fields.

I am so close to having more time on my hands which is great. I think project one will be to involve my kids in the next home file server build-- with a lego computer case. I wanted a hot swap drive array, but the reasonably priced ones are bad for heat & noise and well, the CAB only wants to let go of so many little pieces of paper with dead presidents on them. Certainly fewer pieces with the venerable Benjamin Frankiln depicted...

Do you use Javascript? Meddled with jQuery? AngularJS is the next progression you should give a whirl-- It handles a lot of common things it generally takes me more code to do. The structure, dependency injection, and AJAX promises haven't been easy to wrap my head around, but it has been worth it.
Are you looking for resources to get the best use out of AngularJS? We’ve put together a comprehensive list of tutorials, podcasts and guides, perfect for those who either get started or try to improve their skills.

Mutate for *buntu -- It's based on Alfred for the Mac (One of the two things I like better obviously Alfred is awesome, but the screen is better too. It is.)

Ctrl + D FTW!

I've had a lot to think about lately with expecting our first girl. I suppose if ever that she wants the pink thing-- I will get the pink one for her. But, in general I think she'll play with the same doctor's kit and gender neutral universal building blocks as my boys among other toys... I do guide my boys towards more masculine stuff even if I am no example of a macho guy. But, not my girl-- I share the sentiment that I don't necessarily agree with or like the messages bombarding our girls from society, much of it we cannot control. But, I don't need to be part of it and that is the important thing I will take away from this.

I had seen the picture and thought that the girl grown up was going to have something happy to say because of the smile and colorful box truck. Thanks for bringing something important into focus that I hadn't thought about yet.

I remember everything going smoothly and happening in a reasonable time frame. I am here because I am going to call them for another countertop and see that others have had an experience not like mine. Many years ago we renovated our kitchen. Due to a interesting shape corner cabinet with a lazy Susan I purchased-- off the shelf countertop solutions were not available to me. We went to home depot-- who uses Custom Crafted Counters Inc. as a sub contractor. Their guy came out and measured shortly after the consultation at home depot. They obviously took a span of time to build our somewhat long one piece 'L' shaped formica clad mdf countertop. Then eventually they delivered it on top of my lower kitchen cabinets. I did not pay for installation, but they still gave me pointers on how to get a good install myself. I was googling for their phone number and decided to share my experience with them.
