Theo Moore Questions... Morphology? Longevity? Incept dates?
Something interesting and pretty darn cool/funny has happened recently. I drive to work early every day. I like to get in and get my day started before the madness begins. It's a calm moment to get my mind right before it starts. This also allows me to avoid some of the crazy traffic that can happen between home and the office. In order to get fired ......

I have blogged before about using Powershell as a web testing harness before, but recently I started doing something a little different that has made it even more useful and simple before: jQuery. Powershell gives you access to the HTML DOM from IE, but as we all know this is a bit primitive. Essentially, if there are objects on the page with which ......

A few (6?) weeks ago, I started a project that I've always wanted to do. I am doing a re-write of the old VB6 game DopeWars with a partner in crime. I loved that game and spent many, many hours wasting time playing it years ago. I liked it so much, I even registered it (it was $5...even then, that wasn't much to spend). The VB6 version itself was a ......

Wow, just realized it's my 5 year anniverary on GeeksWithBlogs. Hard to believe so much time has passed. I paged back through some of my early posts, curious what sort of things about which I used to post. It's also interesting to see how my focus has changed and what really hasn't. I was also reminded that Chris Williams and I have been friends for ......

I've been trying many distros of Linux lately, trying to find something I like for my netbook. I started out with Ubuntu, and I can tell you I am a big fan. Ubuntu is now fast to install, much simpler to administer, and pretty light resource-wise. My original install was the standard 32 bit version of 9.04. I tried the netbook remix version of this ......

I checked on the status of voting on the Codestock (www.codestock.org) site this week. I was surpised to see that none of the Powershell sessions were among leaders in voting. Now, I confess that I am somewhat biased (my session is on Powershell), but that said, I thought it odd. I was under the impression that Powershell had a strong following and ......

We went to see Alice In Wonderland today. We both like Tim Burton a lot (the stranger the better) and like Johnny Depp very well also. After seeing all the previews and such, we were fired up to see this film. Honestly, I thought it was good but not great. I was prepared to be wow-ed, but I wasn't. Perhaps I expected too much. I did like it, but I'll ......

On recommendation from a buddy, I have submitted a session for Codestock. I've never been to it, but I've heard great things about it. I sure hope mine gets selected. I am thinking I'd like to do a session on using Windows Powershell as a testing platform for web-based applications. It's a much overlooked part of your Windows 7 install. I have built ......

I checked back at the blog written by the poor guy being sued and he's removed many of the detail surrounding being sued. It is a rather to the point, bland and not confrontational post at this point. No way of knowing, of course, but I suspect he was threatend and edited his post to make him clam up.

That's a damn shame. :-(



I am a powershell user. I use it in testing apps, mostly to either actually work with IE (automated testing) or to configure environments for testing (this can save tons of time and is very repeatable). Powershell is incredibly handy. I was nodding my head very excitedly when I heard Windows 7 would ship with it standard on some versions. “Perfect!” ......

My boss pointed me to a blogpost relating how an independent developer is being sued by Cequint: http://www.threadabort.com/... He had the audacity to write an appplication for free that Cequint wants to charge a monthly fee to provide. I pretend to be a master of (or novice for that matter) ......

We had something odd happen in our office the other day. We finally installed Office 2007. Most of us had no issues at all. However, one of our co-workers installed it on her machine and then applied the patches/service packs as recommended. Initially, her Outlook would crash every time she tried to use it, so she fully installed and then reinstalled….which ......

I love the Bioshock series (guess it's a series now that there are two of them), I really do. I've completed them both, and am tempted to start the first one over and do through them to get the other ending (won't tell you which one I got the first time). After I'd completed the second one, I began to analyze why I like them so much. Is it the first-person ......

Figured what the heck, I'd share my two cents. I know someone is prolly interested in yet another view of the new device by Apple. I've read tons of views and being the lemming I am (as my boss calls me for owning an iPhone and using Ubuntu alongside my MS products), I figured a post was in order. After all, why not? For the record, I am a “fanboi” ......

I have a Acer AspireOne 751h that was originally shipped with Windows XP Home. It worked fine, and the price was good (got it at CostCo). For what it is, it worked beautifully. It does what a netbook does very well. However, it troubled me that with the "hotel loads" (what we called the minimum systems required to keep the ship operating in the Navy), ......
