OOO for a bit so why not say hi to each other?

10-16-2014 2,276 views Misc 7 Comments

As I despise email auto responders I'll use this as my official OOO (Out Of Office) notification for the next two weeks. I do not expect to be blogging at all. I probably won't be on Twitter. Emails will probably pile up as well. Everything will be back to normal(ish) around November 1st. In the meantime...

ColdFusion Jedi is no more...

I've already had multiple people ping me about this so I thought it was a good idea to make sure folks knew I was aware. I have not used the domain in a long time, but each year I was renewing. After some advice from a reader, I put it up for auction and sold it. So - yep - I know that requests for go someplace else. I also have some blog entries that may link to that domain. I'll correct them as I run across them.

Did you do this?

It isn't uncommon for Amazon to ship items from my wish list and leave off the name of the person who sent it to me (and if you ever sent me something and never got a thank you - that's why) - but this gift was sent to me and it wasn't even on my list. So... whoever you are... thank you! It has joined my collection. One day I'll share photos of my Star Wars collection. It hasn't quite hit Hoarders level yet, but I'm getting there.

How to make a phone call via GMail

This falls under the "obvious" category (like probably most of my posts), but as I had trouble finding it before, I figured I'd share this tip. To make a phone call from GMail, with the new Hangouts features, follow these steps:

XCode "forgets" frameworks and bundles after a restart

06-25-2014 2,450 views Development, Misc 4 Comments

Just blogging this as I had trouble Googling for a solution when it hit me. I've been doing ObjectiveC work lately for the CreativeSDK project and I kept running into an odd problem. I'd set up a simple project, do some work on it, and when I returned the next day, any use of the CreativeSDK would fail. If I removed the frameworks and bundles from my project and re-added them, it worked again. The first time (OK, the first few times) this happened, I just assumed I made a mistake when adding it, but when it happened consistently, I figured something was up.

Browser slowdown? SVN failing? Read this.

For a few months now, I've experienced an odd issue with Chrome. I'd go to a URL and get nothing but a white screen while something tried to load. Almost always the URL had 'cdn' in it or implied a static server of some type. It was like Chrome had no issue with the main domain, but barfed on the secondary servers that many sites use for their related assets. Even worse, this one request typically caused the page to hang. I'd kill the request, reload, and pretty much always it loaded. If I opened the same URL while Chrome was hanging in Firefox, it always worked there.

Sunday OT - STTNG Rewatch Complete!

05-11-2014 2,568 views Misc 14 Comments

For the past few years (yes, years), I've been rewatching Star Trek: The Next Generation. I watch it on the treadmill as it is a perfect amount of time for a workout (45 minutes) and is great motivation to actually get off my ass and do the exercise. It took years because I had a few diversions on the way - specifically Mad Men (great), Sons of Anarchy (great, but kinda meh now), and Breaking Bad (freaking amazing). It also took some time because - my god - who knew that TV seasons back then were so long. ST:TNG went for 7 years and had a grand total of 178 episodes. I had originally watched ST:TNG when it first came out, but there were a few episodes I missed and I wanted to experience the show again - in its entirety.

Adding an Absolutely Positioned Header to Reveal.js

I'm a big fan of reveal.js. It is a lightweight HTML-based presentation framework that just works well for me. I switched over to it a while ago and enjoy working with it. Every now and then though I run into an issue that is a bit hard to handle with it. Yesterday I was working on my cfObjective presentation and created the slide you see below.
