TechRepublic had a list of geek books, and user cyberserf compiled it into a convenient text file (itself, a totally geeky endavour).
Starting up a new list of possible companies to use for nonprofit left, left-center.
Once again, another morph. This time from the popular Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek to the guy he studies, French philosopher Jacques Lacan. This one is almost right, but moving the hand from the cheek to the chin was impossible for me.
I didn't mention a couple posts back about the command to combine the output of JavaMorph into a movie:
ffmpeg -f image2 -i %03d.jpg out.movYou run that command inside the output directory.
Here's my latest morph, showing Thom Yorke of Radiohead morphing into David Byrne of Talking Heads. It would have been even better if it was Radiohead from around Kid A morphing into Talking Heads circa Remain in Light.
Here's a video (viewable on Firefox) in Ogg Theora video format. It was created with JavaMorph, a FOSS morphing program, and PiTiVi, a simple video editor. The morpher made the transition, and Pitivi was used to add the stills at either end of the video.
Living turkey morphs into a cooked turkey dinner.
I was just thinking about computers I've owned, and six came out of boxes, ready to run. An Atari 800, and Atari 1040 ST, a Mac Quadra 660 (I think), a Mac iBook, a Mini Mac, and a Compaq budget PC. The rest were bought used, found in the trash, built from parts, or were kits or kit-like (barebones kits that took disks). I'm not sure how many computers I've owned, total. Probably between 20 and 30.
I've never put a ID onto the BODY tag, but here's a situation where it's useful.
Normally, an article has an H1 tag that contains the title for the page. You do this for SEO reasons, as well as semantics.
This rant is so right. SFF computers with power bricks suck.
Woe to the sysadmin who trusts their UPS to work as expected. It turns out that some UPSs won't warn you when the battery is dead or low. You find out it's not functioning when you unplug it.
Setting up ProFTPd with MySQL isn't "hard" per-se, but the most popular tutorial at Khoosys is kind of complex.
It has users, groups, quotas, and a lot of accounting. So the tables are numerous and there are a lot of queries involved.
I'm not such a hard core blogger that I feel like I needed special blogging software. My feeling was that plain old Drupal and text was good enough for most things. But I did a search and turned up ScribeFire. It's really nice. It's a lot better than I thought it'd be, because most of the blogger clients aren't that good. The file uploads don't work with this blog, however. I'm not sure why, but it failed. The alternative is to use FTP to upload your files, which is faster anyway.
Found an good page describing leather and leather grades. It's a commercial page, but, the information is really presented well. This probably qualifies as "great SEO" because I'm reading it, linking to it, and causing their pagerank to rise.
So I was watching the Gustavo Arellano at Google and he mentioned another thing called "Ask a Korean" (a good blog), and noticed that "Ask a Librarian" was coming up a lot. So I searched for it on Google: there were 6,340,000 pages found.
Here is something I can't understand The CodeIgniter Loader class.
Beyond that, I think class loaders sometimes obfuscate where the included files reside. That might seem okay, or even "cool", but I find it annoying.
