Well, at least these guys didn't have to go far to find their equipment!

PolarBlog Topic Icon

A couple weeks ago Rob suggested moving the PolarBlog topic icon to the right in the entry display header.  I've implemented this on my blog as well as in the development version.  Thus this will be the default in the future largely because I like it.  If you don't it will be very easy for you to override it in the CSS to move it back to the left side.  Thanks Rob!

As always, your comments are welcome.

Cassette Jam ‘05

I came across Cassette Jam '05 probably a month ago now.  I found this quite interesting (Project C-90) because I have a pretty extensive collection of tapes.  And quite a few of those I've found in this collection.  I used to marvel at every new design that came about and spend endless hours testing different formulations.  Depending on the music, a certain specific formulation may make it sound that much better.

I have a lot of TDK's (my favorite) and Maxell's, but the coolest looking was always the TEAC with the "open reel" look.  I had one with a different tape formulation, but it looked exactly like the TEAC Cobalt 52 you see here.  I've heard better tape, but this one was the coolest looking of the bunch.

MyClient V3.1.1 Released

I've released MyClient V3.1.1 to address two problems:
  • Standard MySQL connections were failing due to a wrong function being called.
  • On login failures, instead or returning to the login screen, a broken query windows was being displayed.
This is what happens when one hurries to get a release completed.  :(

BOINC Stats Page

Ever since I switched from the old SETI@HOME project to the the BOINC project, I've been wanting to replace the SETI stats with the BOINC stats.  For a variety of reasons —mostly time, I hadn't done so.  Well, as of now you will note the new "BOINC" link in the navigation menu.  Bet you'll never guess what that link is!  ;)
