Question regarding emails from the site

tcr! · Feb 26, 2014 at 10:47 am

Are you guys getting the site emails with the “New comment” subject line?

I ask because the site is telling me that it can’t send them. :-O

UPDATE: Never mind.. I just saw this from the my host.

critical email announcement

So at least I know it’s not the site itself. :)

Godzilla 2014

tcr! · Feb 26, 2014 at 12:09 am

Godzilla - Movie, Trailer, Photos, Synopsis

An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence

Wow.. I didn’t know they were doing yet another remake. Trailer doesn’t look too bad.

Happyface - Audio and Lyrics

tcr! · Feb 25, 2014 at 9:33 pm

My ex-wife, Kathy, was in my thoughts earlier tonight and then as I was running some evening errands, this song came up on my music’s random shuffle.

Kinda weird because this CD was hugely popular at the height of the chaos that was our marriage in 1996. Me — cooking nights in a restaurant, her — assistant managing days at the apartment complex we lived in. We barely saw each other.

Right before the divorce, I hadn’t talked to her in almost a week.

I have a hard time even listening to the Toadies, there’ll forever be an association burned in me between the two. Between her and crunchy Texas guitar. Graph theory anyone?


I said to jimi earlier..

Another pattern I’ve noticed — after the initial high of the relationship wore off, I’ve always went into panic mode, that she (whoever) didn’t love me as they once did, that the relationship was obviously terminal. And then I acted accordingly.

Hell Jim, Kathy only wanted to love me, have a house… And after we moved to Des Moines, I turned antisocial on her.

Um, yeah, there was no more happy face.


On with the show..

The Toadies were one of the few bands that I could’ve and didn’t see live, that I bonded with both the lyrics and the music. Maybe someday I’ll call Texas my home like the Toadies. :)

Happyface by The Toadies

I try to wish you away
I’ll do more than wishin’ someday

No no no more son of a bitch
No no no more wishin’
No no no more son of a bitch
No more happy face!

You and I have nothin’ more to say
We’ll do more than talkin’ someday

No no no more son of a bitch
No no no more talkin’
No no no more son of a bitch
No more happy face!

I sometimes think of the friends of that chapter of my life. There were good times… in the garage at midnight, me strumming acoustic with James and Wendy singing vocals. My black 1984 mustang (with t-tops) parked outside. Her asleep inside because she wouldn’t listen to “that shit.”

She’s on Facebook of course. Damn, she’s old. 😊

i actually searched on found my first ex-wife on FB just about a week ago. i didn't look for the pics other than the one on her front page. it was odie from garfield.

i don't remember why i searched her. i have less than zero feelings/thoughts, hell, even memories of her.

i don't recognize myself from that time.

there is another ex that i have diligently stalked and found very little hard info on. she's into the meth, and i was always into the —-, well, opposite.

i have no reason to lie. i would own it in a second if it were true. meth is the only drug i've never tried. never even wanted to. it's is the opposite of how i want to feel.

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one looking up their ex-spouse on Facebook. I think there's something alluring about the no-consequence stalking that Facebook enables.

j: Nothing wrong with a little extra details now and then.

k: Nothing wrong with a little peek in the Facebook toilet now and again to see what people from the former lives are up to.

A NASA Mission Control Desk

Dad Creates a Homework Desk For His Son That Conceals an Ellaborate NASA Mission Control Console

Dad Creates a Homework Desk For His Son That Conceals an Ellaborate NASA Mission Control Console

Jeff Highsmith of MAKE recently created an elaborate mission control desk, inspired by the NASA Apollo Program, for his son. The desk is topped by a plain surface for homework—when it’s play time, the desk opens to reveal dozens of illuminated push buttons, dials, and digital readouts. Highsmith painstakingly wired the desk so that the buttons trigger sounds, lights, and other actions. Be sure to watch his video to all the way to the end to see it in action.

I want this for my work desk.

Apple’s SSL/TLS bug caused by lack of Curly Braces

tcr! · Feb 25, 2014 at 1:02 pm

ImperialViolet - Apple’s SSL/TLS bug

Note the two goto fail lines in a row. The first one is correctly bound to the if statement but the second, despite the indentation, isn’t conditional at all. The code will always jump to the end from that second goto, err will contain a successful value because the SHA1 update operation was successful and so the signature verification will never fail.

Emphasis mine. Always use curly braces. Always.

I put this in the development docs at work:

What’s the main goal of writing code besides generating output?

READABILITY and the deep understanding that another human being will eventually need to read, use, and debug your code.

Don’t be a lazy rockstar –– think about your fellow developers before you commit.

Sidenote: the codebase that runs this site also powers a handful of work projects.

Ladies and gents, I just made a bunch of under-the-hood changes. Nothing you’ll notice hopefully but if you see anything wonky happening, just give a shout.

Vanilla is one of my favorite flavors, specifically ones of the vanilla bean variety.

I got screwed over with the Vanilla Bean granola and the Dry Vanilla Bean Soda. Both were better off in the trash.

One cannot simply toss a few beans in the mixer, slap a sticker on the package and expect savory magic.
