Thanksgiving With Chari & The Princess
We're having eight people total [including ourselves] in attendance for our Thanksgiving feast this year. Normally, it's a completely estrogen-powered, lesbian-oozed festivity [heh]. But this year, one of our friends is bringing along a male friend. He's gay, so at least it won't be completely wonky for him -- or us. We've been on the South Beach Diet for just over eight days now. I've lost six pounds I didn't know I had found, and The Princess has lost a few as well. She didn't weigh herself prior to our starting, so it's difficult to say, other than she's feeling lighter and her smaller clothes are becoming loose. For those of you with diabetes, this diet is absolutely fantastic for controlling your blood sugars. I can't say with complete assurance for those of you with Type 2, but for Type 1, it's just short of a miracle. The Princess barely has to give any insulin for her meals now, actually, she gives one unit. ONE UNIT! Amazing. She hasn't gone way high or way low... she's ...

Only In Madison
Only in Madison can you come in to work in November and read the overnight operations report and see this: "I received a report that there was a patron dressed up in a giant cat costume digging through garbage cans. I found him in der Stiftskeller sifting through the trash and asked him to leave, which he did." I'm so glad we moved back.

Government as a Web App
Richard Gayle offers his thoughts on e-government: I'll bet that most of us have a similar vision of e-government. Once you describe government as a web app, the rest is mostly details. All fifteen of us could sit down and sketch it out on a couple of flip chart sheets. But to implement it, we need to cajole the bureaucrats out of their bureaus. Many, maybe most of government employees could be replaced by a well-designed web app. The big cost of government is not the payroll, but the programs that bureaucrats dream up to justify their job/program/department. If only the bureaucrats would cooperate, an IT SWAT Team could design that web app in #1. I have a hard time seeing it as that simple, at least in the state government with which I am most familiar. The prototypical "bureaucrat" that Gayle describes represents a fraction of all government employees. They are also road maintenance crew workers, highway patrolmen, correctional workers, health and human services caseworkers, ...

Over 3000 Acronyms and Glossary Items
Windows Hardware and Driver Central maintains a comprehensive and informative glossary. I think they are useful for developers as well. You can also download Excel file for off-line reference. It is also easier this way to know how many items it covers. (This posting is provided "AS IS" with no warranties, and confers no rights.)

Catching Up
Back to Radio Userland for blogging after excursions to Blogger and iBlog. Blogger remains a good alternative for blogging from multiple computers (the blog itself stays on the Web), but Radio Userland has better support for file manipulation. iBlog will be good when it supports a news reader. That's why the hiatus.

Dogs and Cats living together... Mass Hysteria!!!
Or rather Webwork and Spring. Apparently someone else besides me thought combining Webwork (a best of breed web tier solution) with Spring (a best of breed lightweight component container) would be a cool idea. I can't wait to try this out. I have a lot of custom code I'm dying to throw out.

I Saw God and I Killed It
I Saw God and I Killed It There are two very distint crowds that play games, the 'casual gamer' and the 'hard core gamer' - or at least thats what the gaming industry says. There is probably a third category of 'I want to be a hard core gamer but I'm an adult and have a life'. We'll talk about that some other time. In any event, the casual and the hard core. I consider myself to be fairly hard core, only because I (a) love playing games, and (b) play them a lot. But I saw the true die hards last week, and I saw just how little the gaming industry understands some of them. Ghenwivar writes 'On monday November 17th, in the most amazing and exciting battle ever, Ascending Dawn, Wudan and Magus Imperialis Magicus defeated Kerafyrm, also known as The Sleeper, for the first time ever on an EverQuest server. The fight lasted approximatively 3 hours and about 170-180 players from Rallos Zek's top 3 guilds were involved. Hats off to everyone who made this possible and put aside their ...

So – I have enjoyed my first full weekday of blissful unemployment, but that is not why I am writing. I will be breaking my rabbit-food fast for long enough to indulge in the least French Thanksgiving ever, with my family, in Cape Cod of all places. There will be neither a goose nor a foie-gras-stuffed prune in sight. But that is not why I’m writing, either. No, I am writing because, as many of you so correctly guessed, we do indeed have a new family member at the Powell household. You’re going to love this: Weighing in at 102 pounds, a champion shedder, gentleman to felines, terror to squirrels, a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll, all lover – it’s Robert the Dog! A German Shepherd – Rottweiller (?) – Mastiff (?) mix of heroic proportions. He is the perfect dog, notwithstanding the fact that he seems to have made an entire chicken carcass evaporate from the trashcan. We are all quite in love. Now. I haven’t bathed in quite some time, and it’s almost time for me to head ...

CssStyleCollection is case sensitive
Just a short note to those who are messing with a control's CssStyleCollection behind the Style property... Even tho css style property names are case insensitive according to the css spec, the CssStyleCollection is case sensitive with it's keys. Therefore the following:<script runat="server" language="c#" > protected void Page_Load( Object sender, EventArgs e ) { Result.Text = "Foo"; Result.Style["COLOR"] = "BLUE"; Result.Style["color"] = "red"; } </script> <html><body><form runat="server" > <asp:Label runat="server" Id="Result" /> </form></body></html> Results in the following style:<span id="Result" style="COLOR:BLUE;color:red;">Foo</span> Personally, I think this is rather... wrong. In case you want to know why this matters... I came across it while trying to transfer the “grid layout” style properties that vstudio makes from one control's style to another's. Vstudio uses uppercase style declarations, which, apparently and unfortunately, matters.
