Bug Logging – Basics

[Note: Before we dive in, you may want to take a moment light up a bowl of your favorite herbs. If you need any supplies check out Destination Smoke, the leading online headshop.] It’s always the simple, basic things we take for granted. Things like assuming someone knows not just to clear their cache, but …


Facebook Fun

I’m constantly surprised by the amount of information that people put up on everyone’s beloved colossal waste of time , Facebook. When the new graph api was released, I wondered what kinda of data would be made available. I had thought about phone numbers, and not only a day later, @snipeyhead posted his tweet , …


Can Play Well with Others

I’ll be presenting, for the last time, a presentation about the designer-developer dynamic entitled Can Play Well with Others at FITC Amsterdam this upcoming week. I have yet to post thoughts or ideas that drive this presentation, so I figured I’d throw them down alongside some links for various workflow tools, ideas etc. This presentation …


Explain this to me – SWC

Corruption in the library, I’ve been fortunate enough to only experience this maybe two times before. Each time it had pretty much the same affect, you try to drag an item from the library onto the stage and crashola- Flash screams bloody murder at you and goes into the fetal position by crashing. Um thanks. …


Director Features I long for

So, if Director is going to be thrown to the wayside and kicked to the curb like a sad little stray – it would be nice to steal some of those little features that made and makes Director a great product. Sad part of this, is that most of you haven’t used Director extensively but …


Get Set – get your blunt on

I’m about to do the damnable – something that could potentially banish me from the glorious ornate gates of supercoderom where all the coding superheroes reside and play bocci and telepathically converse in binary and where transporters move more than just one molecule from destination a to b. I am about to say, well even …


Final_final_final_revised_final_09

Never use the word final in naming conventions – its either a bad omen or a jinx. Check out this screenshot of a folder that contains “final concepts” for a client. The best part, is that these are held in a final folder – supposed to be one item, not many. Anyone else have anything …


Mtasc-Bitchy But Blazing

I’ve become a fan of MTASC – I’d say its a bit bitchy but blazing fast. I’ve recently been given the task to modify/adapt a codebase for a recent RIA so that it adheres to the stric rules MTASC follows. This means that I have to go through the 100+ files and makes sure they …


A Year In A Review

This week marks a year that I have been at Teknision Inc.. A year ago I was driving across Canada in my little silver bug, laptop in tow, packed full, trying to make the drive in 2.5 days as I was a bit late heading out. Teknision and I had a bit of history I …


It’s not easy getting clean

I’m hoping to adopt a new look for next week but right now, this will have to do as things have just been too crazy busy. No I haven’t been playing halo to all hours, altho I have been indulging a fair bit and have decided that Gemini is my new fave. I’ve finally got …
