I had *no* idea.

From Slashdot (http://entertainment.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=09/05/25/132203)…

“Today, as every May 25th, geeks all over the world celebrate Towel Day and carry a towel in honor of Douglas Adams. The popular author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy died in 2001 at the age of 49, but his work lives on. According to the book, a towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Hence its symbolic role in this celebration. This year, for the first time as far as we know, Towel Day is being supported by the British publisher of Adams’ books, who organizes a photo competition.”

Why windows cross development can be a pain.

Debug image crashes app, have to compact them on mac side.

Can’t switch to window mode – no button. Compact again on mac side.

Network disconnects halfway into session. Have to reboot.

Windows UAC locks up when switching back to window mode.

Took two minutes to fix, once I could actually reach the problem. Total time: two hours.

Now *that* is comedy.

There’s a new version of VMWare Windows emulation software available for download.
Now with a free 12-month subscription to anti-virus software.

Viruses are so prevalent on Windows that *emulators* have to deal with it too?

 

Shocked and appalled.

Done!

My first iPhone project, Flick NBA Basketball, now shipping! View on Freeverse.com (dead link)

My goodness it’s fun to work on the iPhone. It’s amusing to me, that my career started with Apple ][e’s and the iPhones are based on the same basic architecture (ARM processors). It also seems to separate the coders who actually care about resource (RAM, disk, etc) useage from the ones who just “splat” code.

 

Yup, there I is, “Lead Programmer.” Woo!
