Biting the Apple Bullet

Over the past few months I have slowly been acquiring Apple products. It all started with a MacBook that I purchased since my desktop was starting acting weird. Good thing I did as my desktop will currently not even start! I’m suspecting something is awry with either the power supply or mother board. The thing […]

Mike Thomas – Creative Genius

A few weeks ago Tim sent me a link to a pretty awesome video: My Friend is a Pro. After watching it he informed me that the guy who did the sound and some other various parts of the video, Mike Thomas, was a friend of his from back home. Pretty sweet. Cruising through the […]

2009 Melbourne Art Festival 5K

This past weekend was the Melbourne Art Festival which is kicked off every year with a 5K. This is a huge race and I think this year there was just under 1500 runners. This was my second time running this 5K and when I ran it two years ago it was my first race ever. […]

Method Naming

Many of my fellow developers agree that one of the most difficult parts of our job is naming things. The names we are supposed to select should be clear, concise, explanatory and short.
