MCP Gets InnoDB Lovins

I’ve been meaning to do it for quite some time, but I finally cleaned up some of the less refined issues with the database design for Moocow Productions. Among other changes, I moved all pertinent tables to InnoDB and added foreign key constraints. Trouble is, in order to do that, …

PBXT – Getting closer!

Wooho! So I checked the PBXT SVN repository this morning and was pleasantly surprised by seeing this in the ChangeLog: RN146: Fixed a problem with TRUNCATE TABLE: a failed TRUNCATE TABLE could put the engine into an invalid state that later caused a crash This has been sort of a …

Brandon and Amy tie the knot yay!

I was wondering when they would get it done. Turns out that day was Saturday. Though it was not without its fair share of bumps (buckets of rain on the day of the wedding being one), it was a very nice ceremony and enjoyable reception, which included some awesome Karaoke …

Why are the Olympic announcers so damned mean?

So I’m diggin’ the Olympics this year. Granted, we haven’t watched them as much as in the past, partly because this month is quite busy for us. Fortunately our Tivo has tried to help a bit but either way, when we do watch the Olympics, it’s pretty awesome. My favorite …

Doom 3. For $19.99, learn how to be afraid of the dark.

So I know Doom 3 is like a 4 year old game, but I never had the time nor a good computer to play it back then. Last weekend, while Amy and Corey were making candles the guys watched Doom (the movie) in -between playing WiiFit. It wasn’t near as …

New SIDs came in, woohoo!

My new SID 6582A’s came in today! All 8 of them! I remember it was quite an ordeal to get my 1st SID chip, and to have 8 is super awesome! Of course, this is for my ShoeSID project (the name I have coined my work-in-progress MidiBox-SID). These chips have, …

Congratulations and Best Wishes To Chad and Nancy

They now be hitched, yo! Woohoo! We have known both Chad and Nancy since my college days in UT and, like Oliver, I was wondering when they might tie the knot. I’m glad they finally have! Relationships like theirs do not come by everyday I don’t think, and I am …

RAX

Today marks the day where Rackspace is now a publicly traded company, under the ‘RAX’ symbol for the New York Stock Exchange. Though I missed it live (I tuned into the wrong damn channel), we even rang the opening bell at the NYSE! It’s pretty neat! I think it is …

Last Comic Standing, VI

So we watched the finale of Last Comic Standing, season 6. It was pretty good, but I definitely had a few gripes. First, why did they spend so many shows with the talent search, and compress the shows where they were in the house to like 2? The shenanigans in …
