    Hi all, I have been slowly teaching myself web design and going through tutorials on Lynda and YouTube. I have been using Adobe Muse and Dreamweaver but Muse is too static and doesn't work with WordPress which is a feature most web designers hate.

Fairies are very beautiful and very vain and they haven’t got the imagination to fill a thimble. And they never learn from their mistakes.

To sell out would make it one of the largest music concerts ever played in America — highly unlikely for an English electronic band. Claiming they were popular enough to fill that stadium was an audacious act of bravado that critics were eager to see transform to humiliation as they played to a vast, near-vacant space, mocked by the each of the tens of…

    If you bet a startup will fail, you’ll be right most of the time, but not because you’re insightful. (The Critic)If you bet only on huge ideas, you’ll be wrong most of the time, but because in high tech the financial successes are orders of magnitude larger than failures, this is still a profitable bet. (The Professional Investor)If you bet only on small, conservative ideas, and stay focussed, you’re most likely to actually succeed, with normal-sized outcomes. This is the best bet for sustainable personal fulfillment and freedom, which after all is the core promise of…
  • Why startup biz dev deals almost never get done

    Jason
    28 Apr 2014 | 9:30 am
    As the founder of WP Engine, I receive weekly emails from startups proposing a “win-win” deal.  So far, approximately zero have resulted in an successful deal.Here’s the problem, and how you can change your approach to business development so that it can succeed.Distribution is the hardest thing for a young startup, defined as “getting in front of potential customers.” Large companies, on the other hand, have solved the distribution problem (proof: 100,000 paying customers).“Maybe,” thinks the startup founder, “I can tap that ass.

    2014′s summer movie offerings are just getting their start, so bring out the critiques! Disney’s entry continues their recent tradition of taking a time-honored classic animated feature and turning it into a live-action/CGI amalgamation that is sure to intrigue the millions who grew up with the original film. Maleficent casts Angelina Jolie as the title villain, known to just about every man, woman and child as the evil sorceress who curses Sleeping Beauty, transforms into a green-fire breathing dragon and is ultimately defeated by Prince Philip. But that’s not what happens…

    Several times now, I’ve heard Edge of Tomorrow described as the action version of Groundhog Day.  While that might be a good way to describe the movie quickly to someone who hasn’t heard of it, it does a disservice to an original and exciting movie.  For me, Edge of Tomorrow is so far the best movie of the summer and it deserves more careful consideration than a comparison to a 20-year old comedy. I am generally not a big fan of Tom Cruise, and he’s all over the advertising for this movie.  He always seems smug and too cool in his roles.  This time around, he’s…

    There are currently 26 free “Web Courses” available from Esri.  I am a huge fan of these courses, they are well organized, provide a certificate of completion, and actually teach you usable things.  Web Courses utilize informational videos, reading material, interactive videos, and quizzes to teach an reenforce concepts and skills.  These free classes on ArcMap and other Esri technologies are a great way to get introduced to the software, prepare for an exam,  and/or “refresh” yourself and get certificates on things you’ve learned before.

  • Of Procs and Percentages

    Kyle Souza
    20 Jul 2014 | 1:08 pm
    In Marvel War of Heroes many cards have an Ability. Each Ability is paired with a Usage stat, the Usage defines the likeliness of an ability activating in battle. In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

    As part of a larger project where I had to delete overlapping polygons in ArcGIS and then give them all a unique number within specific boundaries utilizing attribute information from another layer which it overlapped geographically I figured out this little trick for creating a sequence of numbers in excel based on a run of numbers in another column.

All gone, overnight when my computer crashed and I could not get back any of the data. It does not matter if you are just a home computer user or a business man, backing up your computer is a must.

    Ethan the Meteor Hunter is an action puzzle game developed by Seaven Studios. The blurb for the game on Steam's store page is as follows: Freeze time and manipulate the world with endless possibilities: build the solution YOU want where nothing is scripted and levels can be solved in multiple ways. When Super Meat Boy meets Braid, you may die repeatedly and enjoy it! I'm certainly one for setting high bars and lofty goals for one's self, but the question is now installed. Did this game succeed in taking the best of Super Meat Boy and Braid and blending them together, or did it fall short?

    Dean Koontz first came to the public’s attention in the early 1970s. He was originally considered a science-fiction author (his 1975 far-future Nightmare Journey contains talking evolved descendents of animals), but he soon established a reputation as one of the leading authors of horror/suspense fiction with s-f, fantasy, or supernatural elements. Watchers, his most popular novel, straddles the border between science-fiction and “realistic” suspense fiction involving genetic engineering. In a detailed analysis in Critical Companions to Popular Contemporary Writers (1996), Joan G.

He despises the frontier and decries the poor conditions at every opportunity. He’s so consumed with hate for where he lives that it seems to have stifled his ambition, and all he wants to do is bitch and moan.

    30 Aug 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Is the Doctor a good man? It is one of the key questions at the heart of this show. Is the Doctor a good man? Only two episodes in and this series hasn’t exactly been subtle in its quest to delve into the dark side of the Doctor. After a lackluster opener this was Peter Capaldi’s first real adventure as the Doctor, so it was fitting that he was pitted against the Daleks. Nothing exposes the Doctor’s personality better than an encounter with his oldest enemy. “Into the Dalek” was better than last week’s offering but there is something about this series that is still falling flat.

So, will the studio reboot the franchise like Fox did with X-Men or scarp everything and start anew? Let’s take a look! The first film in the franchise was released in 2003 and it was able to gross approximately $95 million on a budget of $22 million. The box-office numbers were quite impressive for a film that had a sole female lead and was about a war between vampires and werewolves. It was followed by three more…

    The Mandarin’s role in Iron Man 3 provided a neat(and perhaps necessary in this day and age) little plot twist for fans of the film and comics.

  • Review – Amazing Spider-Man 2

    27 Aug 2014 | 6:09 pm
    Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back for another Spidey adventure. Is this sequel amazing? or just plain boring? This review contains major plot elements. Spoilers are blurred until hover and click on it: Like this “You know what it is I love about being Spider-Man? Everything!” However, the same cannot be said about “watching” the Amazing Spider-Man 2. At times, the pacing of the movie seems disjointed and some scenes drag on for too long. The major issue in this film is it tries too hard to set up the upcoming Sinister-Six film. Electro, Green Goblin (Maybe…
  • Chi-Square Test and RNG Fairness

    Ninjalicious
    25 Aug 2014 | 8:13 pm
    A quick tutorial for novice statisticians or computer scientists to quickly ensure a random number generator is fair by using the Chi-Square test. To make sure a random number generator is fair, and the distribution of the random numbers is uniform. One can apply frequency tests to check the RNG distribution. There are many tests available. My personal favorite frequency test is the Chi-Square test. The Chi-Square test is very simple, and should only take a few minutes to learn Side note: other test I loved to use is the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Maybe in the future, I will write…

    A quick rant about Zoe Quinn and stupid people. If you are not familiar with the event, I would suggest don’t even bother with reading it up. If you really want to: Here is the link. Am I shocked or appalled by this kind of behavior in the gaming industry? No, This is happening in other industries as well. I am not one bit surprised that a shitty online media site and a shitty indie manipulator can do something like this. However, I am annoyed by some people’s reaction to this. If we ignore all the other allegations and just focus on what is true, one can clearly tell this Zoe…
  • Dealing with chronic surgery pain

    20 Aug 2014 | 6:03 pm
    Some advice from personal experience to deal with chronic surgery pain or Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP). I went through an orthognathic surgery about two years ago (double jaw surgery – upper and lower jaw correction). I suffered from a football injury six years ago. I dislocated my jaw, and starting to developed crossbite. I did not suffer from TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint/Disorder), but I still decided to pursue the surgery. I spend around $16,000 for both orthodontist and Maxillofacial surgeon (around $8,000 each). Unfortunately, some side effects from the surgery still…

    To celebrate the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Blu-ray and DVD, I worked out some recent jumping-on points for new Amazing Spider-Man Fans to check out the series. Like the Beginners’ Guide to X-men Comics, There are some movies I would suggest you to watch before starting with the comics. I would definitively recommend Sam Raimi’s  Spider-Man 1 & 2. and Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2. These four movies aren’t bad, and these movies provide enough background for people to dive into the comics. For comics, I would suggest the Marvel Unlimited…
