So it turns out I spent the weekend in Henderson, NV with my girlfriend. She is a coach for CCSD, and today (Monday), I am also chilling/hanging out with her at work. Turns out this is relatively boring. However, it’s okay. I found things to do. Such as sit here, filling up her browser history with weird entries.Continue reading “Henderson”
Amazing. I’ve neglected this site so much in the past year that I forgot to take my Christmas theme down and now it’s time to put it back up!
Just recently (like, yesterday), I received my first (and hopefully long-lasting) AR.Drone 2 from Parrot in the mail!
This thing is a four-rotor remote-controlled copter operated with an app on my Android!
So far, I can say I’m fairly happy with it, save for the stock battery which, in short, is really really sad.
However, with a bit of research on the web, especially at the Parrot, I’ve found out quite a few things about this device which isn’t covered in, say, the user manual or the quick start guide.
So I’ll cover a few of what I’ll call my “Infrequently Asked Questions,” since there are plenty of FAQ’s out there and they all say about the same things, which, for someone with at least a LITTLE programming background, should be pretty straightforward. However, there were a few things which I could not find any mention of that I found particularly interesting, or notable.
Here are a couple more intro shorts for you to choose from. I’ll update the poll to reflect them:
Again, comments and suggestions are welcome.
Alright, so I haven’t been back here for a loooong while. Happy New Year!!!!! Anyway, I’m typing this whole thing from my mom’s Blackberry Curve, so forgive me if it seems too short. Nothing really exciting going on, but Brinkster now has Garfield pages allowing you to view favorites, today’s, past strips even including entire years at a time. Just don’t overload it, as the site has limited bandwidth and will lock down for the rest of the (I think) day if it goes over.. Alright. I’m done because I have fat fingers and can’t type much longer.
How freaking connected can you be in the web? I’ve got a Google account with a ton of subscriptions there, and a DeviantArt account (which I haven’t touched in a year, but am now). So I just uploaded a ton of my difference backgrounds. I’ll add the “pastie” at the bottom of this window. Basically like the youtube video carousel.
How connected can you be? How many subscriptions…how many things to say? Who knows? ACK!!
- Don’t like IE8 yet?
- Use the link toolbar?
Well, I discovered that an uninstall of IE8 will make your Links Toolbar disappear.
The following excerpt from ComputerWorldUK give a feel for the problem source.
