Class cancelled (Apparently our costs + CDI's overhead were too much)

Including development of the courseware and printing, we were looking at around $6000 for a full 5-day accelerated course for 10 people. That's a chunk of change, yes, but honestly, pulling together the courseware (which for these topics necessitated almost 2-1/2 weeks of un-billable work) means that we were just barely breaking even (though the ...

Plone tutorial sort of falls apart toward the end (Becomes much closer to point-form)

Spent the last few hours reviewing the Plone tutorial with which I'm trying to help. There's a lot of writing still to do, figure another 4 hours or so, maybe a little less. There's actually some stuff in the sample code that looks like it wants to be refined as well. Not just doc-strings (which ...

Using a semen extractor for a woman? (Science shows are weird sometimes...)

Same program mentioned female ejaculation (in which a clear fluid is expelled from a woman's eurethra during (certain types of) orgasm), but didn't draw what seems ...

Unfortunately, most of the previously-present VRML97 files are now gone. has moved VRML97 to "legacy" status and dropped the annotated spec (which had some ...

Ah, that's elegant (I flatter myself...)

So, in preparation for a 1.0 release of OpenGLContext I figure I should have the VRML viewer demos/tests work like a normal application and allow for selecting the file to load rather than requiring a command-line invocation. I spent a few hours working on some refactoring and then sat down to look at how to ...

Whether 'tis better to update what I don't use (Or play with what I'm interested in...)

First 8 hours of the day basically a complete waste. Woken up way too early by my mother, and then my sister, both of whom so know better, calling at 9 am! Unable to continue sleeping, I went shopping then came home to nap... but the jerky neighbours upstairs are in playing music way too ...
