I’ve talked before about how a few of us created the Secret Adventures of Captain America on a rag tag budget — most being Marvel writers and artists.. for some reason (my masculine and sexy voice perhaps) I had the honor of not only creating the music and sound but being Cap himself. I was…Details
I wonder how many generations removed are these kids from knowing who Rowan or Martin are….
The King of Pop must’ve been a fantastic, musician, right? An entertainer since he was 7 who had performed for millions, recorded a slew of albums and topped the charts for years must’ve been an accomplished musician, correct? Turns out that even though he could dabble on keyboards and guitars he couldn’t read nor write…Details
Very strange; I couldn’t access the school lunch application I programmed for NicholasMarkets (www.nicholasmarkets.com) and I originally thought that the website was down, but now it seems that I’m unable to access the site because I’m being blocked in some manor. PING www.nicholasmarkets.com (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 Request timeout for…Details
Wow. I’ve been… silent as the grave the past two years — I think it’s been the amount of work I’ve been doing (I’m going to update my portfolio with the last … six?.. projects or so in the next coming days. Meanwhile there’s been so much CHANGE. In the world of technology (Flex compiling…Details
Ok – for the past week we’ve been having TERRIBLE speed issues within the Canton CT area – especially on upload. I pay for the business speed ($188 a month for just digital tv and cable) — and over Vonage I’ve been getting a terrible delay. Skype is the same way. Right now I’m attempting…Details

Whew; have been working on getting this site updated on a dev server, and finally got it up and running with fixes on the production server — just have would like to change the way the contact page works — there’s no real UI response that a message was sent… I’ll probably do a quick…Details
Great video from TED on the power of motivators –and specifically for those that need to think creatively; the old stick and carrot only works for tasks that require heads-down work…
In my forays into mobile development and appcelerator.com‘s Titanium for developing on iPhone and Android, I also found phonegap that allows a trifold approach for Android, iPhone and Blackberry.

Found this over at vimeo, and just think it’s a great ‘up and running’ step through..
With my head down in the specifics of technology so much, I tend to forget about what all of this we use relies so much on.. power. I can debug and test, patch and peruse to my heart’s content, but if there’s no electricity there’s not much hope of anything happening… like a castle built…Details
