I’m not sure that I oppose things like order-taking being done by screen, personally - they tried something like this in Atlanta at Taco Bell about 20 years ago, but it did not take off.  It DID increase the accuracy of special orders, but people preferred the interaction with a real person.  We called it Cyber Bell back then.
I honestly doubt that it would take hold now, either.

    Tangible Media

    MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

    "Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

    *The tie-in with the projection-mapping is especially good.

    This is amazing!

    Every ad for technology I see on the internet.
Which is probably why every arch diagram looks like this in people’s diagrams, too.

  6. DB Monitor 1.0.3, Log Tail, vacation, etc

    I took the last week off of work to relax and get a few things done.  I meant to do a lot of things that I just honestly didn’t even try that hard to do, but I did get quite a few things accomplished:

    1. Cleaned out a lot of the house - where my mother in law used to live we have been half-planning on doing something with for over a year now, and we finally got started on that project.  Still a long way to go but I think we have it all planned out now.
    2. Tore down the screen house! (RIP) This was a great place to sit outside and throw parties / enjoy the spring / summer / fall - but two years ago there was a nasty storm that took down 9 trees in our yard.  One of the casualties was our front porch, which we had to rebuild - the other major casualty was the screen house in the back…  which was a mangled pile of metal attached to a permanent trex foundation.  the trex still looks great, and I think we may end up rebuilding it, but I finally ripped up the metal corpse of the screen house and threw it in the dumpster.
    3. Hammock!  Only took 9 years for me to set that up.
    4. Mt Boxmore is no more!  I’ve had a horrible tendency to throw boxes into the garage to “get rid of them” instead of breaking them down and sending them for recycling.  This problem is now gone!
    5. Got a lot of work done on an application called LogTail which I may talk about more in the future.  I’ve stubbed out several new applications for the mac after discovering a fantastic framework called NMSSH.  Short version, LogTail (work in progress, not quite ready for consumption yet) is a utility that uses ssh and your ssh agent to hop onto a machine/machines and watch log files for you…  and helps you write some expressions to make it easier to monitor them, looking for significant events, and filtering the events it sees into digestible / investigable chunks.  Signal / noise ratio watching spammy log files can be rough, this makes it easier.
    6. Updated DB Monitor to 1.0.3 - FINALLY found and fixed a significant memory leak that has been plaguing the app for the last year.  Uploaded to the app store, hope it should be out on Tuesday or Wednesday of this coming week.

    Speaking of DB Monitor - here’s a graph of all of the downloads of the application since it went free on the app store.  It’s now the #86 most popular free developer tool on the apple app store (with just under 1000 downloads so far).  If you have downloaded it and like it, please rate it! ;)

     
  7. DB Monitor 1.0.2 submitted to App Store

    With the bug fixes and library upgrade I decided it was worth submitting a 1.0.2 to the app store.  I plan on publishing a little more information about distribution and activity later this week once it has been approved (based on prior experiences it will take a few days to actually get processed, especially over the holiday weekend)

     
  8. DB Monitor updates coming (only 1.0.2, though)

    I spent some time on the train fixing some long standing bugs (since 1.0.1) of DB Monitor and upgrading the version of the MySQL library provided by Karl Kraft.  I think I will spend some time over the next week trying to reproduce a bug that Hank seems to see after about 2 days of constant use, and then once I fix it I will bless a new version for the app store.  Huzzah!

     
  9. Anonymous said: For quite a few years after my severe head trauma I was noticing odd things going on with my phones , finance and the ones I had surrounded myself with and spent my life raising them. when I still had a BB storm I got a droid 2 for a I finallyrealized what WAS GOING ON IT HAD BEEN TOO LONG AND TO LATE. I seem to remember a program on the droid 2 called aqua, AND gold fish AND EVRYWHERE THEY WERE, THERE WERE BLANK OR EMPTY FILES. A DVD w/ Linux mandrake TURNED UP. aNY info oN WHAT WAS BEING DONE

    I think maybe you should see a doctor clearly free software was not the solution to your head injury. :)
