Geeking Out – Flogging English

Bind a Spektrum DX6i to a Blade 200 QX Quadcopter

      A lot of the Blade multi-rotors are RTF, or Ready To Fly, like the Blade 180 QX. The 200 QX however is a BNF, or Bind and Fly which means you will need to get a remote to fly your new 200 QX Quadcopter. For this I chose the Spektrum DX6i. It’s … Read more

13 states, 1 guy, an iPod and 5 minutes and 48 seconds of video

So I had this crazy idea a while ago that when I made my journey to the left side of the country that I wanted to make a time-lapse video of my trip. The first thing was to find a camera. Now, mind you, I already have three digital cameras, and the two point and … Read more

Apple’s Magic Trackpad: Not Magic, just good

I’ve been living with this thing on my desk for a couple of weeks now, and I think I like it. I bought the Apple Magic Trackpad because I like how the interaction on all my ‘i’ devices works. I love my iPad and use it all the time at home and at work, so … Read more

Return from the 3rd level of malware hell

There are days, that the interwebs suck dynamically placed, interactive Donkey Balls. Yesterday, was one of those days. Come to find out at some point on Friday, Flogging English was, for lack of a better word, hacked. Two JavaScript files had some malicious code embedded in them that tried to do something well…. malicious. What? … Read more

REWORK : Essential reading for… everyone.

Rework is one of those books; you know the ones. The kind of book that opens your mind to ideas. Changes your attitude, and brings you a clarity of thought that you have not had in a while. Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson (you know, the guys who started 37signals?) knocked this one out … Read more

Blogging from the iPad – w00t!

So I got my hands on iPad today, it’s not mine really, but I get to play with it for a couple of days while I get it setup for a work project. My first reaction is that it’s pretty freakin’ cool, just like a proper Apple fanboy. I’m amazed at how nice the majority … Read more

Cannondale’s Simon – Electronic Suspension System at CES

It probably never really crossed your mind unless you ride a lot, and I mean a lot (or hang out with a bunch of spandex junkies), but there are total bike geeks too. Just like folks get all wiggly over computer and new high-tech coolness, the same can be said for those of the bike … Read more

JavaScript libraries – jQuery or Scriptaculous. What’s your flavor?

I didn’t really intend to start my week by ultimately working up a simple comparison of JavaScript libraries, but like many things, the end result is not always what the initial outcome was planned on becoming. My latest project at work is building a small music site which will be a content managed portal for … Read more

FITC Mobile 2009 | totally awesome in Toronto

I just returned home yesterday from the first ever FITC Mobile up in Toronto, and if I was still of the drinking persuasion, I would raise a pint to Shawn and all of the other amazing FITC staff and volunteers who makes these events so bloody awesome! Every one of the events I have attended … Read more

So what’s on your iPhone?

I’ve been pretty much joined at the hip with my iPod since I bought my first one back in 2005, I think that’s when I got it. Now that I have an iPod Touch and an iPhone, I have entirely too many apps loaded onto those two devices. In fact, I have 113 apps installed … Read more

Create your own fractals with Ruby Fractal Library 1.2.0

The newly updated version of the Ruby Fractal Library lets you get your fractal geek on while simultaneously getting your web geek on with Ruby. I haven’t had a chance to get into this yet, or even Ruby for that matter, but I have it added to the long list of things that I will … Read more

Great Googily Moogily! FIB-U-LATOR goes live!

A picture is worth a thousand words, or maybe just 99 cents! As of just a few minutes ago, FIB-U-LATOR went live in the app store. Thanks to everyone for help, encouragement, sarcasm and most of all…. excuses! DOn’t forget to sign up on the Facebook fans page too, it’s been a lot of fun … Read more

Xbox Natal – does it mean “not at all” real?

What seems like something that could be right out of every gamers fantasy, Microsoft has concocted the idea of hands free, body sensing gaming and put it to pixels on the project website. The videos portray several scenarios of advanced game play and interaction, and I’ll be the first to say that if they could … Read more

Happy Birthday – iPhone style!

So the other day was my birthday, and after dinner, cards, 3 boxes and a lot of packing popcorn I finally got the “You’re shittin’ me” moment when I torn into the last bit of wrapping and there I staring face to face with an iPhone box. With an iPhone in it. Seriously, this is … Read more

Moblin 2 crawls along on VMware

The other day when I installed Moblin back onto my Macbook with VMware, I just sort of went the route of set it, and forget it. I didn’t spend a lot of time playing, and didn’t pay a whole lot of attention either. I noticed the interface had changed, and like it, but that was … Read more
