Excuse Delay

Sorry for the hold up but I am realizing how bad of an idea this was. I made a blog thinking I was doing a tutorial. I failed at both <_< . I noticed this while I was making the application and made a change in a previously posted code. I thought I could just make a new post but then it hit me. So here I am. I will later make a new blog that...

JSFiddle display console and share

Icon Leave Comment
My shortest blog to date, but perhaps one of the most useful.

To display a console in JSFiddle add this link (Firebug Lite) as an External Resource in the left pane, then Run your code.

example

console.log("hello"); will send output to this window. This is much better than using alerts, or having to configure an element...

Unless you have been living under a cyber rock as a developer you know that Microsoft recently purchased Xamarin, the company that makes a system for creating cross platform applications (Android, Windows, iOS) all in a single C# code source.

Then to do something really shocking, they made Xamarin free as part of Visual Studio. OH, and as if that...

Thoughts on mutliplayer games

Icon Leave Comment
My current side project is an electronic TCG. Ideally this type of game should be a multiplayer game. Making a game multiplayer can be a daunting task. There are a lot of variables that you need to keep in mind when designing a multiplayer game. What protocol will you use for the game. Are you going to go with a client/server, peer to peer or...

I hate terrible book to film adaptations. Especially if the source material is excellent. Enter The Maze Runner. A book pentology published starting in 2009 to 2016, but recently got the silver screen treatment. WARNING, spoilers spoilers spoilers!...

ASP.NET Variables Won't Hold Their Values

Icon Leave Comment
When it comes to working with ASP.NET most developers who have done standard desktop development always run into the problem of their class variables not retaining their values. You create a variable at the class/page level and expect that when you click a button or change a server control on the page that those variables will be there when its...

The Shopping Bag as Issues List (A Fable)

Icon 1 Comments
Recently, e_i_pi discussed working for an organization that maintained issues list as a set of Sharepoint lists.

I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but it's all too common. An organization starts out thinking, well, we don't really need all that stuff, we can get away with writing them down on this old shopping bag, and...

Apologies

I am James Delorn Howland Jr. I do owe company apology because I accidentally ask the same question on my Straight Line Depreciation Table in Visual Basic program. The reason is because the tutor explaination in my opinion confused me real. I like to how many questions I could ask weekly. If I get a tutor to explain to me in a different way I...

I use this code to run the OPs client and server classes in a single JVM so that their debug output is in one console and relative times of events can easily be seen.

5 Years

Icon 2 Comments
I have no hopes for the future. Once I was hopeful of it, 5 years ago when I got out of college, already working because I got hired before graduation. I thought I would just let my contract expire and be off to greener pastures.

Everything started out well. I was provided with great trainings school did not give me, and I felt I was prepared to...

Python is boring

Icon 3 Comments
Old readers would remember that yours truly used to be a Ruby programmer back in 2006 and moved to Perl somewhere in 2008 and stuck with the latter for a long time as my goto language. In 2005 I did some PHP, but let's not dig up ancient history. The past year or so I have spent learning and using Python...

Day 1 of python

I have always been interested in how computer run. How they execute commands and all of that. I finally decided to take a step further in my life by learning python. Day 1 was a bit intimidating, as I'm sure all other languages feel the same for beginers. Learned how to run python and also the
print("")
function as well as

Validation Of Dates.(No Math)

I've developed a method of validating the digit characters in a date. Using only simple parsing techniques.
  • No maths is involved
  • No creation of a DateTime object.
  • No converting of the character into integers.

This technique assumes that character are a least digits.
