Why does Windows not recognize my USB device as the same device if I plug it into a different port?
You may have noticed that if you take a USB device and plug it into your computer, Windows recognizes it and configures it. Then if you unplug it and replug it into a different USB port, Windows gets a bout of amnesia and thinks that it's a completely different device instead of using the ...

Fort Manor just raised the bar for music videos. If OK Go's next video isn't 360, I'll be disappointed.

I hope government keeps working this way. I love what the federal government is doing. I would love to do this with our websites too someday.

This is how messed up Germany is...
Germany has just given us a graphic example of what can go wrong when one unthinkingly applies decades old legal concepts to modern web tech. Heise.de and Boersenblatt reported on Friday and Thursday that the Jugendschutzbehörde (Youth Protection Authority) has handed down a new ruling which extended Germany's Youth Media Protection Law to include ebooks. As a result of... Read More »

This is a really cool feature from Dropbox. I might need to promote us using this at the office again.

So... there are plenty of jobs, just not enough tools to help filter out the applicants.

Midrange and Web Developer, Geek, and Father
Introduction
I have been a long-time geek. I started with using an Apple ][e at the age of 4. Later on, I used to have to reinstall Windows many, many times on my dad’s computer in order to fix something I messed up. I originally went to college for networking, but also took the programming track (at the same time) under the guidance of my parents. I now prefer to program computers than fix them. I have been programming in RPG on the IBM midrange servers since 2000 and programming in ASP.NET MVC since 2007. My main focus these days is bringing a more modern look to our older RPG applications by giving them a web front-end.

When we walked in we didn't quite know what we wanted. The salesperson showed us some used CR-Vs in our price range, then informed us that for a couple grand more we can drive away in a brand new CR-V. In the end, that is what we did. They never pressured us to upgrade and they didn't sell on "options" nor did they push the next package level up. We loved our car buying experience here and would gladly recommend them to others.

Buyer beware. I have never gone to a dealer were the salesperson had to ask his manager which cars to show us then wouldn't tell us the price of the vehicles we were driving. They were friendly, but a bit pushy. We were not impressed with the vehicles we drove nor how he lied about the cargo space vs. a competitors vehicle. They then asked if we see buying from them before we seen any prices of vehicles. They also asked if we thought about raising our budget about five grand. The kicker for me is how they were proud to say that the owners like to get a new vehicle every year and a half. Why? I can't vouch for the quality of the cars, but know what you are getting into at the dealer.

It's a great campground with a water park nearby.

I thought this place was too expensive for what you get. The roads were bad shape, the camping spots are nothing special, and leaving wasn't easy with all of the people dumping and blocking all exits. The heated pool was quite nice though and the bar looked to be really nice. The trails are also nice. Where you register is confusing though. You need to go to the bar to register.
