Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock: The Game!

, July 16, 2013

With the release of Xojo that allows people to use the IDE for *free* and to develop applications for Windows, Mac, Linux or the Web (to ‘build’ the application as an executable you need a paid Xojo license) this is a great opportunity for me to teach my kids some programming. I have two boys, […]

The Tale of Two Random String Functions

, January 29, 2013

I’ve been thinking a lot of random strings lately. Notice that this isn’t about generating a UUID. I just wanted to generate a reasonably random string. Originally I had need for a user ‘typable’ string. I get really frustrated by the CAPTCHA strings when they include the ambiguous characters of I, 1, O, and 0. […]

HD Antenna with Over The Air Broadcast, Alpharetta, GA

, June 11, 2009

I repositioned the antenna rotator in my attic this past weekend. It’s got a full range of motion now instead of it hitting some attic joists, which is nice. I lost a couple of pounds in the 120-130 degree temps in my attic. Ah well, it’s all for the cause, eh? I then hooked up […]

MEPIS Linux Thunderbird EMail Blocked By Guarddog Firewall

, May 1, 2009

I had this problem solved several years ago … but of course I had forgotten it. I hope this helps someone else out. I have Comcast Internet which has blocked port 25 in sending email, and now allows port 50. That port can change any day now, and without warning, no thanks to spammers. I […]
