tiny wires

Friday, November 7th, 2003

do you reckon we can we get smaller? Is this sort of tech going to help moore’s law for a while, or have we maxed out already? (but then you would have read these is you read slashdot)

google deskbar

Friday, November 7th, 2003

i can’t remember how i found this post, but it links to the very awesome google deskbar. The deskbar seems to have been received with mixed feelings. I think it is absolutly awesome. Although it could squeeze to be a bit smaller (i don’t care it i can see the text box or not). Where […]

intermediate language

Thursday, November 6th, 2003

you have to watch these compilers these days, eh? You never know when they’re going to do something different. (this post investigates the details of the problem). This is all in an attempt to learn how to change an IL (aka .NET program). All I want to do is change a simple if (a=b) return […]

google names

Tuesday, November 4th, 2003

ever tried searching for your name on google? searching for ‘norman rasmussen’ finds links related to me at number 2, 6, and 11. A work collegue ‘Alistair Scott’ is nowhere to be found, but this blog entry is funny. Even worse was the fact that it uses the same style-sheet as my blog. How Wierd……

IPv6style is seriously worth the visit. I found it to be easy to read and provide plenty of serious code samples and helpfull pictures to explain anything.

Okay so my new keyboard is a bit blue – literally I’m trying to get the multimedia keys on the keyboard to work with Winamp. Here are some links I’ve tried. whatnot Control A Couple of Repeated Blurbs Girder Forums I suggest that if you’re interested in getting these keys to work like I wanted […]

Distributed VoIP

Friday, October 17th, 2003

Have you tried Skype yet ? It’s a Voice-Over-IP solution brought to by the makers of KaZaA. I’ve tried it with a friend in Holand and besides sounding like Stephen Hawking and chewing all the bandwidth on my 64kb line; it seems to work quite well – i.e. got through firewall, although i’ve not really […]

squeal SQL squeal

Friday, October 17th, 2003

Well I’ve spent the last two days trying to figure out how to write a script to approve items in our application and then I converted it into an AutoBuilder script (maybe I’ll post more on AB later, but pratically it takes a template and generates all your stored procedures for you). I am truely […]
