LinkedIn Phising Website

Sun, 05 Jun 2011 14:46:50 +0000

The other day I was browsing to my LinkedIn account and instead of typing “”, I unwittingly typed in “”. Notice the difference? I sure didn’t, and once I had hit enter, I was instantly redirected to this page: Looks legitimate enough right? That’s what I thought and I figured LinkedIn might have hired this [...]

My Commonly Used Mac OS X Applications

Tue, 29 Mar 2011 17:32:33 +0000

A colleague of mine recently got a MacBook Pro and asked me what some of my favorite Mac applications are. Having made the transition from a Windows PC to a Mac a few years back, I distinctly remember all the trial and error I went through in learning about the Mac and finding apps on [...]

MVC 3 Technologies

Thu, 27 Jan 2011 06:00:26 +0000

I had a brown bag session with my colleagues at work the other day to discuss the new technologies introduced with MVC 3. Here’s a summary of my session and what I feel is the most useful new features. This is from the perspective of a developer who works on a mission critical website that [...]

iOS Tip – Load Remote Images

Tue, 13 Jul 2010 22:44:36 +0000

Quick tip, if you have iOS3/iOS4 on your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, you can disable loading remote images in emails by going into Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and flipping the “Load Remote Images” option to Off. By default, it is set to On. Why would you want to do this since Apple has deemed it good [...]

Military Terminology from Band of Brothers

Fri, 02 Apr 2010 21:10:56 +0000

The other week I just finished watching the World War II-based mini series Band of Brothers. It’s a great show with a good story and lots of action and even sparked an interest in me to learn more about the War. This recent Time magazine article is what inspired me to watch this show. As [...]

TextWrangler with Subversion on Mac

Wed, 31 Mar 2010 18:53:15 +0000

Amazing what you’d find if you read the manual! Even though TextWrangler is a window-based editor for the Mac, it comes with this useful terminal command: edit. Executing this command loads TextWrangler from the command line. How is this useful for a window-based environment like the Mac? Well just recently I was configuring my Subversion [...]

UITableView Background in a Standard UIView

Tue, 23 Mar 2010 00:25:30 +0000

While exploring the CoreDataBooks sample iPhone app, I came upon the EditingViewController which I noticed had the same grey/white bar background as does a UITableView has when it’s in grouped style. After fiddling with the Background property for some time, I eventually figured out how to set the Background to the same background pattern. 1. [...]

Vista SP2: Now with more free space!

Tue, 09 Jun 2009 21:44:46 +0000

Just did the Vista SP2 upgrade on one of my PC’s and, just like the rumors, got some extra hard drive space back. Neat! Before After Here’s to hoping Windows 7 will at least keep the same size!

WWDC 2009 Keynote Reactions

Tue, 09 Jun 2009 00:08:27 +0000

The live coverage blogs Kind of fun to see where the bloggers are sitting by viewing the perspectives from their pictures. The AJAX auto updating blogs are awesome. Those that require refreshing… not as much. Also the picture qualities are very different. You can tell which site has the bigger budget with the quality of [...]

Star Trek Movie

Fri, 08 May 2009 06:31:22 +0000

Went to see the new Star Trek movie today on an IMAX screen. Fun movie. Not geeky like the original movie/series. More mainstream plot/acting to appeal to the masses. Even so, they did include lots of hints/references to the original Star Trek for Trekkie fans. Don’t like how they keep changing the Star Trek story [...]
