Now, I love sourceforge, but it’s becoming my opinion that having actual files associated with a project should be a requirement for starting a project on sourceforge.

Man am I having Valley Apple user group meeting flashbacks or what.
go to cocoaheads.org and sign up for the mailing list for announcements.
Sandvox – dan wood… Wow, cool looking app. … Watson?
interesting stuff: cocoatech, greg hulands sftp framework, imediabrowser, epegwrapper, photoview, imageio
its freeeezing in here.
I need a obj-c/cocoa noob user group, this stuff is way cool, but this is way over my head :-
My brain feels like a melted-rehardened-baked-broiled-deepfried piece of mush thanks to Stephen Kochan and Aaron Hillegass’ objective-c and Cocoa programming bootcamp at Big Nerd Ranch. I’m sitting at the chili’s at the atlanta airport terminal A, and I’m trying to imagine what it will be like to wake up in my own bed and not get a big drink from the firehose of obj-c/cocoa. The past week feels like 3 weeks to me. Every day was so jam packed with useful information that it’s going to take a few days of doing nothing but going through the books and example code just to come up with the right questions to ask the class alumni email list. I would absolutely recommend this class from Big Nerd Ranch. Both instructors are great, the material is useful, the accomodations are good, my classmates were insightful and interesting, and I think you’ll walk away a smarter person.
I by no means would call myself an expert cocoa programmer at this point. I have a good jump start, but a long road ahead. This instruction will help me get a better idea of what I can do, and has helped me understand the syntax and methods of programming in objective c and cocoa…. But omg, so… Much… Information….
As with the PHP Bootcamp at big nerd ranch, I would absolutle steer you to them. I feel like it’s extremely helpful to get guided demos from great instructors, and then have a full instructional book to take home to review. Big Nerd Ranch delived the goods again.
.. Just be ready for that firehose.
when in xcode, you can start typing just about anything and hit escape or f5 to get it to give you a list of suggested things to automatically complete what you started typing.
Once you select one of the items in the list, hit control-/ to go forward, control-shift-/ to go backwards through the list of arguments… handy!
Here are a couple things I regularly wish I could do with my computer and treo 650 phone:
* copy and paste text to and from my phone to and from my computer
* drag and drop URLs onto my phone
* drag and drop google maps locations onto my phone
I can already drag and drop photos, music, and video onto my phone using the missing sync, but… dang. I sure wish I could treat my browsers and clipboards on my treo and computer like they’re both working for me.
ok, so I had done this prototype design in second life, so the scale’s obviously not to life, but you can see this is a laptop +isight or other usb/firewire camera solution.
Since I can’t get my act together to build this any time soon, and since I did this design a year and a half ago, I figured I might as well put it out there since I’ve seen two new teleprompter ideas lately.

I’m working on a php script that reads a directory of files, MP3’s to be exact, reads the ID3 tags, and creates an iTunes Store podcast compliant RSS feed. It’s not exactly ready for primetime, but you can check out the progress and subscribe to the Dobox Recordings songcast here:
Steve Cooley is back with a new release of banging techno, two tracks of which were created in preparation for his live performance at AVA2006. Most of these tracks begin on his Treo 650, using Bhajis Loops, and then progress through GarageBand and Logic Express. Other techniques involve harvesting glitch and audio ephemera from nature and unnatural sources. The style is layered up from the base of beats, effects, sounds from space, people on the street, everyday snippets of the sounds around us. But don’t forget the beats. This is a 4-track pounder.
I won best in show for the unjuried portion of Heart of Chaos‘ Urban Geography show! There were a lot of great artists in the show, and I’m very grateful to have been awarded this honor. Key events besides the accolades were meeting Miguel Machuca, who is a very talented abstract painter in a very similar vein as myself, and doing a live painting demo. Thanks to Heart of Chaos and Brooks College for a great night.
