Standing up: 100% complete

Recently I decided to try a stand up desk again.  I’ve used one a few jobs previous where I had to assemble all manor of electronic devices and rather liked it.   At home this has the duel benefit of keeping me focused, and keeping my son out of my computer equipment.

I’ll keep you up to date with how it goes.  I’m interested to see how standing at home and sitting at work compare with regards to comfort.

Updates to pih

A few minor updates to programming is hard. I’ve had these on the hard drive for a while, and with my machine going in for repair I’ve deployed the changes prior to being without a computer.

  1. Tag split/restore on comma is fixed for some update situations
  2. Caching updated for rss feeds
  3. CSS fixed for readability on Safari
  4. Minor speed/performance enhancements
  5. Invalid url handling resolved
  6. Display of source url in code list and detail view

Big O, It’s Showtime!

This post shall serve a number of purposes and that number shall from hence be known as 2.

Purpose 1: Introducing Nick.

Many things could be said of Nick, and some day we will indeed say them. For now however, know that Nick has razor sharp claws like a ninja, the acumen of ten businesses, and code like a Brazilian spider monkey. In other words, super awesome.

Purpose 2: Big O

Nick has a penchant for spouting random bouts of mathematical formulas. Lately Big O Notation has come up many times. Every time I hear it, I get the mental image of this Big O.

I’m just cleaning up

Way too much twitter and work have left my blog barren. I’m trying to clean it up this week and get back to posting regularly.

Hopefully time and space can slow down a bit so I can get my final batch of updates to RubyFurnace out this week as well.
