What is the best practice for building a multiple page application in EXTjs.  There doesn't seem to be any clear way to do it.

I'm considering simply making separate apps for each page with a common server side which remembers any persistent data between pages.

If you're concerned that the ExtJS MVC architecture can't support anything but single page apps: http://slashwhatever.com/using-extjs-mvc-architecture-without-viewports/

Shelters & Hammocks  - 
 
I'm in a quandary.  It's so warm that I can go backpacking in March when there rightfully should be 5 to 6 feet of snow in the mountains.  However, my hammock system doesn't have a really good bug net solution yet and the mosquitoes are already out.

Do I break down and bring my old 5 pound tent?  5 Pounds for a single piece of gear feels morally wrong somehow.

Are there enough mosquitoes for them to be a nuisance? I mean I've seen quite a few mosquitoes here too when there normally should be snow but I don't think they would be a problem this early. Now if just my UQ would get here soon I'd be out camping without a net right now.

My Grand daughter Calli and I had fun throwing yoyos with the YoLex Yoyo club on Sunday. The California State yoyo championship happened on Saturday so a lot of the best players were in town including state, national, and world yoyo champion Gentry Stein.

Most of the players ranged in age from 10 years old up to their mid 20's although there were a few older players closer to my age. I have to say, it would have been so easy for those kids to cop an attitude of "I'm one of the hot shot yoyo players and you're just a beginner so I won't hang out with you." But there was absolutely none of that. Everyone was incredibly open and sharing. Gentry Stein was incredibly nice and spent hours hanging out with the group. When Calli and I went up to talk to him he was very kind and it was really nice talking to him.

I'm so very impressed with how open and accepting the kids were. It really makes us want to come back and do it again.

Meanwhile, I had a chance to try a Gentry Stein "Shutter" yoyo. Oh my gosh, it was so much better than mine that I had to buy one. Now I just need to spend many hours of practice time.

Thank you for the advice on building control areas.  I had a pretty good day wandering around my town.  Here's a before and after comparison of my first real farming/linking day.  And even though the intel map doesn't show it, I leveled up to level 4.  Slowly but surely I'm getting there.

I just captured 6 portals all within 200 meters of each other. I filled their resonator and tried to link them. I can get one link to work but not the 2nd link to make the triangle. What am I missing?

I really only started throwing a yoyo about a week ago. I'm considering making a "100 days of" video where we quickly see what my progress is over 100 days. What do you think? Would that actually interest anybody?

+Luke Renner Funny you mention that. I just started working on Pop'N Fresh and wow, that's a hard trick.

I've been practicing a lot and I have now added these tricks to my repertoire.  They aren't perfect, but I can get through them:

Buddha's Revenge
Plastic Whip
Trapeze and his brother slack
Double or Nothing
Cold Fusion
Skin the Gerbil (Really having a hard time keeping the spin for the duration of this one)
Barrel rolls
Split the atom
Mach 5

Next in line to learn are :
Pop'N Fresh
Eli Hops
Kwijibo

We haven't played Mice and Mystics in over a year. So we decided to start at the beginning again. I hope those poor mice can survive the sewers.

I finished a nice little project today. The "Build Your Own Clone" 5 knob compressor.  It's a clone of the Ross compressor with an additional tone knob, and a blend knob which will blend the straight signal and the compressed signal.  The remaining 3 knobs are Attack, Sustain, and Level.

It sounds amazing.  It's really really clean with lots of variation on how much sustain you need.  The Attack knob is very subtle but you can hear it affecting your pick attack slightly.

What a fun project.  You get the circuit board, case, and a bag of parts.  Then you go online to download the instructions, get out your multimeter to make sure you're reading those resister code properly and go to it!

Mammoth is another company which makes these kinds of kits.  I suggest Build Your Own Clone over Mammoth because BYOC gives you access to very complete instructions.  Mammoth makes you sign up to a forum on GutiarPCB.com and that can take weeks or even months to get accepted to the forum.  And that's just to get the layout of the parts on the PC Board.  It's ridiculous to make you jump through that many hoops just to get basic directions to the kit you already bought.

Yes, Mammoth sells their kits without instructions.

BYOC, on the other hand, gives you a PDF of incredibly good step by step instructions.  My biggest tip is to double check every single resister with a multi-meter to make sure you're  reading the resister codes correctly.  It's easy to mistake a 10K for a 100K resister.

I'm starting to make support videos for my students.  This first video talks about the proper way to hold a pick and also covers some fun exercises which will help your students learn to pick across strings with either upstrokes or downstrokes.  I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

I like this it'a very helpful. I have a student I teach in North Carolina & I'm in Utah. I find videos have been very helpful with her. Keep these coming.

The trees in the Sierra mountains are blooming. The only problem is that it's February and we should be having temperatures in the 30s to 40s with some snow on the ground.

I just finished reading Warrior's Blood. Book 2 of Shawn Jones' Warrior series. Damn you Shawn, now I have to immediately start reading book 3 to see how the story progresses. 😀

I don't have enough spare time to read as much as I would like. But these books have me hooked. More Please.
