Got some of my #appengine  page load times cut in half with a nice memcache layer. What a great morning :)

Google's new #inbox  is sooooooo cool. Their bundling works incredibly well so far - none of the billion travel ads leaked into my Travel bundle. Same thing for my Amazon and Google Play orders. Very pleased and can't wait to get this on my work account.

Okay Python, enough versions already. Half my libraries are in the 2.7 camp and the others are in the 3.x camp :(

Code Signing Tips:

We recently updated our code signing certificate and failed to notice that the new has algorithm was SHA256. No big deal, right? 

Wrong. #visualstudio    2012, SHA256 certifcates, and #clickonce  do not play well together. After trying out many SO and TechNet solutions (tons of awesome help from @RobinDotNet by the way) I decided that signing the code outside of Visual Studio would be best. None of the BeforeBuild, AfterCompile, etcs. resulted in fully signed or entirely installable deployments.

I wrote a python script to handle the signing of the application, manifest, and setup files. We parse the .application file as xml to obtain the current 'Application Files' folder version to sign.

The school was great! I attended MCC from 2007 through 2009 and they have a great teaching staff. However, my most recent experience with them was rather unpleasant. I'm working on my Masters through ASU which requires tests to be proctored. Last semester I drove all the way out the Rio campus on the 10 and Broadway. In an effort to save time, I set up my tests here. When I called to make an appointment, the staff showed a lack of organization and had poor phone skills. When it finally came time for my appointment, I showed up and found the testing facility to be in a noisy, open room. Not a good testing environment. The testers even interrupted me during the test to get me to fill out a form field that I had missed. Sorry but that can wait. At the end they make you pay which fine except the cashier is literally across campus and then you have to bring back a receipt. Don't go here for proctored exams!

Use the pumps on the north side if paying by card. The south pumps are all fried from the sun and lack of shade. Also, don't waste your money on the car wash. You may actually end up dirtier than when you started.
