Greetings from San Jose
Well I don’t normally post on a Sunday, but US TV has driven me to the PC.
Yeah OK sorry if you are from the USA, but commercials are meant to be a break from the programs, not the other way around.
So many off you have contacted me with ideas for dishwasher meals, not just simple meals, but entire recipes that would make a cordon blur chief weep.
Unfortunately my fridge here in the hotel only has a few fish fingers, chicken pieces and some eggs so I can’t them out, but I did forward them on to wife.
Our dishwasher at home is broken but I might just get it fixed to try out some of these ideas.
Several people have IM’ed me to see if I saw the Thierry Henry goal today, I downloaded something from the internet that streamed the game to my PC from Japan.
It was a bit jumpy. But mMy recollection of the game is, someone kicked the ball, the app froze for 20 seconds, and then the next thing it knew it was 2-1 and players were running around happy. So no is the answer no. NO NO NO I missed it. At times like these you are glad for a job that has travel.
Arsenal are my biggest and only hobby. But hey the important thing is the result. It’s not the watching and enjoying.
While I am here lets not waste the opportunity to talk about a cool application.
One of the most popular applications it the extras gallery is the Skype tracer application. Skype tracer if you are not familiar with it enables you to trace all Skype messages sent to and from the Skype client. If you’re a developer then you need it, full stop, finished, install it now. Get it here
If you are writing App2App messaging application then you need the application from Acutetechnology which promises to do everything that SkypeTracer does but specifically for App2App messaging applications.
The sample contains Visual Basic sample code which uses Skype4COM ActiveX component. The program was written using Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition, The code has been written to provide a test bed for investigating the App2App.
So if you are writing App2App applications then you need this, http://www.acutetechnology.com/SkypeA2A/index.html
I will do a bit more of a write up on this as it appears to be so useful and you will all need it.
Right now my wife has just IM’ed me to say she has found a stray cat which she has adopted and it is keeping her awake. Probably scratching at the cat flap to get out and get home, but they wont be told!
Incidentally I am meeting up with Tory on Tuesday. I’m looking forward to the hangover for the trip home already.
