Using Microsoft Flow to publish recommendations

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 19:01:17 +0000

Like a growing number of people, I read a lot of content on I wanted to find a way to share the posts that I find most interesting. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been playing with Microsoft Flow, which allows you to create automated workflows between different apps and services. I’m not…

Using Sublime Text as your git editor on Windows

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 22:39:48 +0000

Many git commands require using an editor including writing good commit messages. I use Sublime Text as my default text editor and I wanted to make sure git launched Sublime Text appropriately. On Windows, the sublime_text.exe program has a couple of command line options that help here. The -n option causes a new editing window…

MDI to TIFF converter

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 19:40:07 +0000

Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) was part of Office up to Office 2007. It allowed you to scan multipage documents into .MDI files. MODI was deprecated and removed from Office 2010 and with a modern installation of Windows and Office there is no native support for .MDI files. If you have these files archived then…

Using DVI monitors with the new Surface Dock

Sun, 06 Dec 2015 06:46:56 +0000

The new Surface Dock from Microsoft has two mini-DisplayPort outputs that can be used to connect a Surface Book, Surface Pro 3, or Surface Pro 4 to two external monitors. This makes it possible to connect to VGA, DVI, or HDMI devices with the use of an adapter. However, to work with a DVI input…

Using Yeoman to start writing technical specifications with ReSpec

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 05:27:51 +0000

Yeoman is a tool that provides a scaffolding system to begin new projects. The genius thing about Yeoman is that, by itself, it doesn’t know how to do anything. This flexibility comes from a modular approach that relies on separate generator modules. Each generator knows how to create a particular kind of project (e.g. an…

It’s time to move on from IE8

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 20:23:27 +0000

Yesterday, my esteemed (new) colleague Aaron Gustafson wrote a piece about his reaction to the “Break Up with Internet Explorer 8” site currently doing the rounds in the Twittersphere. He argues for support of older browsers and optimisation for newer, better browsers. I disagree. Some people don’t have control over their browsing environment. Some people…

Using C# to access the Twitter API

Tue, 20 May 2014 15:25:00 +0000

My last post described how to acquire Twitter OAuth keys and tokens to allow you to use Twitter’s API to access Twitter feeds. I showed how to use the request module with node, which has built-in support for OAuth, to request and process data. In this blog post I will show how to do the…

Accessing the Twitter API using OAuth

Mon, 19 May 2014 15:30:00 +0000

Following on from my last post that described using Node to access feeds from Delicious, I’ve also been investigating how to access my Twitter feed. This adds a little more complexity because Twitter requires that your app or script authenticate to Twitter using OAuth. Per Wikipedia, “OAuth provides client applications a ‘secure delegated access’ to…

Node and Delicious

Fri, 16 May 2014 18:32:46 +0000

In my last post, I wrote about using node as a scripting tool. Node has lots of good libraries for making network requests and processing the results. request is one of the most popular HTTP clients. It is easier to work with than the built-in http module that is designed to provide basic http client/server…

Node and xml-stream

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 18:53:46 +0000

For the last couple of months, I’ve been experimenting more and more with node. My impression is that most people who have heard of node but not really used it think of it as a server technology for building web applications using JavaScript. Of course, it does that and there is good support for node…
