Waking up in 2017

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 23:54:01 +0000

Just a quick note to myself that in 2017 I’m committing myself to writing some posts on other technologies as I use them more.  Python, HTML, Kivy and more.

Not dead, just resting…

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 05:13:23 +0000

I just noticed that I hadn’t posted anything to my blog. Guess blogging is dead with Twitter and other social avenues.  Anyhow, I’ll leave everything as-is for now, but have to think at some point, I’ll just shutter the WP blog.  Doesn’t make much sense to leave open a potential...

Archived Adobe Flex SDKs

Sun, 06 May 2012 18:15:55 +0000

Seems as if the Flex SDK downloads on the Adobe SourceForge page ( aren’t working so I decided to archive my own copies in the mean time.  Figured this might help others have download issues until Adobe fixes the links. Download -> Flex Download -> Flex Download ->...

Android UI Components for Flex 4.5

Sat, 14 May 2011 04:48:13 +0000

Back during the public beta of Flash Builder and Flex 4.5, I realized I was going to need some Android UI components. I wanted the ability to have a stock Android look and feel.  So I went about building my own, and with the release of Flex 4.5 SDK, I’ve...

Stage Video Frustrations

Tue, 10 May 2011 03:51:35 +0000

I was recently asked by a client to take a look at Flash Player 10.2’s new Stage Video.  This isn’t for your typical web video display, but for digital signage.  There is no nice way to put it but large scale Flash displays (720p, 1080p) have sucked in the past,...

My First Two Weeks with Android

Fri, 14 Jan 2011 21:45:45 +0000

Recently, I bought a Droid 2 from a friend for development purposes.  Initially for AIR on Android, but maybe letter native development too.  I’m an iPhone user and to be honest, I really don’t have any reason to move over, but I wanted to get used to Android because I...

My Technology Thoughts for 2011

Wed, 12 Jan 2011 18:00:34 +0000

The challenges we face this year will be the same challenges we face next year. The players may change a bit, but it will still be the same.  Fragmentation has been a part of our lives as developers and designers since the computer was born.  Nothing is going to change...

DRM — okay for video, but it wasn’t for music

Thu, 19 Aug 2010 18:51:00 +0000

Just a quick thought that came to mind while reading some of the HTML5 vs Flash banter. One of the big pluses of Flash video is DRM. HTML5 doesn’t support DRM. But wasn’t it just a few years ago we were shouting down with DRM for mp3s? People were pissed...

ArsTechnica weighs in on Oracle’s Java lawsuit

Sun, 15 Aug 2010 15:38:22 +0000

I always enjoy reading ArsTechnica.  Maybe just me, but always find their articles even keeled.   They provide their input on the Oracle Java lawsuit against Google over Android and the Dalvik VM. Link: This could represent a good chance for HP and its newly acquired WebOS technology from Palm. ...

Twitter, and the lack of blogging

Thu, 13 May 2010 22:14:23 +0000

Serious lack of updates to my blog. Â Seems like Twitter & Facebook has become the choice of communication. My blog has fallen way behind. Easier to follow me via the Las Vegas Adobe User Group Facebook page at or via twitter at
