I'd understand if it was ABC....

...but I don't see why CBS had to cancel Love Monkey. Very interesting premise and fun show to watch. If the season makes it to DVD, I'd certainly rent it to watch the rest of the episodes. I'm disappointed in CBS.

Amazing

This is the first season I've watched the Amazing Race on CBS and I must say it's really fun....but quite stressful to watch. Maybe that's what makes it fun.

Yes, yes, yes, I'm close to landing something to hide the search box, and allowing searching on the selected text from a context menu. After this, I turn my attention to spellcheck.

Camino Goodies

Tomorrow's nightly (branch and trunk) will contain some new goodies. The first is a resizable Google search bar. Next is an inline display that a popup was blocked, freeing us from the last major piece of UI that was in the status bar. I also landed some other smaller patches for viewing page source in a separate window and option-return to download the url in the url bar.

I hope to have a few more things done by the end of the week while Amo is out of town. Keep you eyes peeled to bonsai for more updates.

Audiophile MIDI!??!?

So I went to my local music store looking for a cheap MIDI cable. At said music store, they told me they only carry the expensive cables from their supplier because the people who buy MIDI cables demand audiophile quality sound reproduction. WHAT?!?!?!?! Wait....WHAT?!?!?!?

Ok, let's back up for a second. We're talking about MIDI; only control signals go over the wire. There is no audio signal transmitted, period. The MIDI notes either get there, or they don't. The punk behind the counter is just another moron, and I wasn't about to pay $20 each for a cable.

Needless to say, I'm never going back there again.

So...far...behind....

Work has kept me so busy that I'm still back in February on my bugmail. FEBRUARY! I have 957 unread bugmails. I feel so out of touch. I'm pulling new trunk and branch trees right now, hopefully I can get the chance next week to catch up with Amo out of town all week. Maybe I can even write some small features (how many times have I told myself that?). Thank god there are others on this project that keep it running when I'm out to lunch.

Finally found a Mackie Control Universal to drive LogicPro (they're terribly backordered, and I even found it for cheaper than I expected). Hopefully that will make things in my music room a little easier to mess with. I want to get back to writing some new stuff. I haven't written anything I like in a while.

My "band" is still searching for a singer and drummer. We had a great nibble on a female lead singer and then she flaked out right before the last meeting because "it's too far". Sigh. We found a couple of drummers, the one we played with on Tuesday is still in high school. Let's back up a second. Mmmhmm. He's in high school, and plays in the marching band. God I'm old. I'm not sure he can even get into a club. Have I mentioned how old I am?

If you haven't been watching How I Met Your Mother you should. It's the perfect comedy for thirty-somethings who aren't afraid to admit....well, most anything. Just watch it.

Bracketology

The brackets are set. I'm ready for a month of baseketballlllllll.

New episode of Sopranos, lots of confusion, lots of good stuff ahead. If you haven't, check out Big Love, which follows it. I was impressed with HBO's boldness.

Madness, I say!

It's March, and that means college basketball. I may never leave the house.

M-m-my G-g-g-generation

Happy birthday today to Roger Daltrey. Still going, still rocking, still sounds incredible. If you ever have a chance to catch reruns of his "Extreme History" show (on TLC maybe), you should watch. They're actually really good.
