My Code Kata–A Solution Kata
Sunday, November 13, 2011 1:53 PM
There are many developers and coders out there who like to do code Kata’s to keep their coding ability up to scratch and to practice their skills. I think it is a good idea. While I like the concept, I find them dead boring and of minimal purpose. Yes, they serve to hone your skills but that’s about it. They are often quite abstract, in that they usually focus...

Fujitsu T900 and Fingerprint Sensor Problems
Sunday, June 27, 2010 6:00 PM
Not so long ago, I bought a Fujitsu T900 Notebook computer from TegaTech (many thanks to the great service and help I received from Hugo Ortega who runs it). Anyway, I bought a fairly stock system with 4Gb memory and a 320Gb 5400 rpm HDD. Later I updated to 8Gb memory and a 128Gb SSD with the 320Gb HDD as my secondary drive. This of course meant a full rebuild... Read More...

RSS Feeds in Outlook 2007 - Part 2. Bye bye Outlook
Tuesday, September 4, 2007 11:08 PM
The other day, I posted about my issues with Outlook 2007 and its handling of my RSS feeds. I tried a number of things to fix it, the latest effort being to export all my feeds, delete all of them from Outlook, then re-import. Didn't work, dates were still all wrong. I have to say I am very disappointed. I enjoyed the convenience of having my feeds in Outook... Read More...
XBox 360 120Gb Hard Disk
Thursday, July 19, 2007 11:46 PM
So I got me a 120Gb hard disk for my XBox 360 for my birthday a few days ago. Its pretty sweet and came with a transfer cable and software to migrate all my stuff from the 20Gb unit to my 120Gb unit. It feels quite a bit faster too. The demo's I have all seem to load a lot faster. Nice. Now I can download to my hearts content and not have to continually clean... Read More...

Replacement XBox360 for me
Thursday, May 3, 2007 4:53 PM
I blogged just recently about my 360 getting the red ring of death after only a year and 1 month of operation. I purchased an extended warranty agreement with the retailer for on the spot replacement of the unit for 2 years from the date of purchase. So luckily, I now have a brand new Xbox360 to replace the dead one. The same hard drive was moved to the new unit... Read More...

3 out of 3 Xbox units die
Tuesday, May 1, 2007 10:32 PM
Just awesome. I have owned 3 Xbox units in my time. Every single unit has died a little after a year of operation. My first original XBox console died around 1 year and 2 months after I bought it. My second original XBox console died another year and a bit after purchasing it. Now, my XBox 360 has died, 1 year and 1 month after I purchased it. Just freaking awesome... Read More...

Website update with AJAX, WPF Password Manager, and Web Client Factory
Saturday, March 10, 2007 6:32 PM
Couple of things in this post. Firstly (and long overdue), I have updated my personal website to get rid of the Atlas CTP functionality and replace that with ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 features. There is not much actually a few update panels, and the inclusion of an AJAX Control toolkit control, the Accordion on the front page to help with useability and screen real estate... Read More...

Xmas gift
Wednesday, November 29, 2006 2:45 PM
A lot of people donate to charities and have their preferred way of trying to make a difference. One of the ways I try and do so is via WorldVision . We have been sponsoring a child for about the last 5 years and have found it a very rewarding experience. Its great to see the progress they are making and be able to swap letters and find out all about their life... Read More...
