season's meatings!


our holiday gift to anchorbutt.

wreathloaf recipe:

  • ~2 lbs ground meat, source and fat to suit your palate
  • ~.5 c catsup, divided
  • medium white onion, diced
  • 1 package dried pork-flavored stovetop stuffing
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 scant cup fresh chopped italian parsley

  1. document thoroughly with digital camera.
  2. pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. combine half the catsup and all other ingredients with hands in large mixing bowl until everything is well-incorporated.
  4. divide and plop into bundt pan.
  5. massage meat with hands into pan, to ensure that meat fills crevices and to satisfy other needs you may have.
  6. drizzle remaining catsup onto meat to seal in el sabor. spread with spatula. note: you might instead consider drizzling into the bottom of the bundt pan prior to adding meat, for a more traditional bundtloaf look.
  7. bake on center rack @ 350, 45min-1hr, until desired firmness is achieved. knife inserted into thickest part of annulus should come out slightly greasy but otherwise clean of meat residue.
  8. let stand for 5-10 minutes.
  9. gently separate edges from bundt pan with a butter knife or small spatula.
  10. quickly turn out onto a platter. the meat may hesitate to slide onto the plate. coax it by flexing the bundt pan as necessary, or just wait to let it plop out on its own. i recommend staying close to the pan during this process so that you can hear this distinctive sound.
  11. garnish. be imaginative, but tasteful. here we have:

    • "holly sprig" of cranberries and flat-leaf parsley, pinned with a bent paperclip.
    • "bow" of prosciutto.

  12. enjoy with champagne and potatoes.


apologies to vegetarians, and to carnivores.

Tee Shurts

Drew has a lot of t-shirts, IIRC. It's time he put them to good use.

since we're talking shop today - Adaptive User Interfaces

A recent fluff post on slashdot got me thinking on the general subject of adaptive user interfaces (think Windows Personalized Menus, except think FAR, far into the future, possibly an alternate future, in which such features don't feel like shitting razors). think "subjunctive". I almost posted a comment over there, but decided I was more likely to get an amusing response here.

So there was this stupid article about how the "OS of the FUTURE (echo: FYOochurrr yoochurr yoochur...)" will hide menu items and filter spam for you (holy crapstacy!). Most commentators correctly noted that the journalist does not understand the function of an Operating System and has possibly not used a computer in 7 years. BUT...

1. Do adaptive interfaces have potential at all? Specifically,
2. Can they be implemented such that you can move from computer to computer without getting culture shocked?
3. How could they be made more task sensitive? so in my video editor app if i switch from a mostly-reviewing context to a mostly-modifying context, the toolsets presented should be different. The eclipse 'perspectives' idea is an ever-so-slight nod in this direction.
4. How can they sufficiently involve the user in the process of adaptation?

This last seems like a major problem with the whole idea of adaptive interfaces in general. with most spam filters, you at least get to see when spam arrives, and spend some time training your filter without risk of losing emails that turn out not to be spam.

is there an analogous set of ideas in adapting menus and UI organization as a whole? something that doesn't intrude on your other activities every time there's going to be a simplifying change to the interface? something that splits the difference between "i tediously reconfigure everything myself" and "buggy heuristics and probability filters reconfigure things for me"? an interface must be predictable in its behavior to be usable (doesn't it?). so a big question:

how can an interface be both adaptable and predictable?

And after tentatively agreeing with the Legion of Beardoes that adaptive interfaces are not the purvue of Operating Systems, is there a place for a system-level service that observes behaviors and systematically abstracts them? This sort of thing would allow some crazy stuff:

1. applications that have no relationship to each other whatsoever (besides host platform) can find unexpected harmonies. For example, I have applications A and B open (one could even be a TTY app). When my behavior pattern in app 'A' shifts to "editing" mode (from earlier example), a similar shift is automatically engendered in app 'B'.
2. the same sort of engine could be used for non-human actors and non user-interfaces (APIs)... couldn't these adaptive principals be applied to system optimization? "the application while being exploited by user X in mode Y never makes these system calls -- therefore, the library in which they are stored will not be linked or will be aggressively paged out if the user is in mode Y". things aren't just simpler... they are faster.

This last point just occurred to me while typing all this junk and has me all worked up into a nerdy lather. Maybe I'll regret it in the morning. It is probably the case that existing caching and paging algorithms are far more efficient than this could ever be. Any takers on that one?

So. What do you guys think? Anyone know of (or have written...) any current apps with super-spiffy adaptive interfaces? Dewey, anything from the Newton come to mind?

Eclipse PDE == Ass

Twice I've tried to use the PDE to generate headless builds for my Eclipse plug-ins, and twice I've given up in disgust. This is frustrating because there is a lot of promise in the PDE environment.

Here's my current hit list for PDE build scripts:

Hard coded paths to the Eclipse plug-in jars.

One of my plug-ins generated a build script with about twenty paths that started like this:
..\..\..\..\..\..\eclipse_3.1\targete\clipse\plugins
Holy crap! That is a big pain. I can't run that build from a different branch on my machine, much less on the build portal, without regenerating the build script. Eclipse has provided ant tasks for doing just that, but, if you want to use them, you need to use the Eclipse antRunner. This segues nicely with my next gripe.

antRunner! WTF?
To run Eclipse builds headless, you need to use the Eclipse antRunner application. This breaks the Ant interface, plain and simple. Just typing 'ant' should get some sort of reasonable result. Failing that, typing 'ant -p' should provide some usage information*. Instead, you get to type something like this:
%JAVAEXE% -cp %STARTUPJAR% org.eclipse.core.launcher.Main -noupdate -application
org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -data %WORKSPACE% -buildfile %BUILDFILE%

There's another problem. If your building an RCP application with the antRunner, you're required to have the Eclipse IDE installed on every machine that might make that build. One of the benefits of using Ant is that it allows you to create a build script without IDE dependencies.

I suppose I'm just being a tad pedantic. Either way, I still think the right thing for me to do was to write my own scripts.

Rolling your own
Rolling your own build scripts has it's share of pitfalls. You need to manage your dependencies in two places, which you're probably doing already if you're using Eclipse for development and Ant for builds**. The real hassle is keeping your plug-in version numbers synchronized. I set all of the versions to 0.0.0 in the PDE and I set a version property in the build scripts. Then I replace all those 0.0.0's with the version property during the build. The obvious shortcoming with this technique is that all of your features and plugins will have the same version number. I found this to be acceptable, if not ideal. Your mileage may vary.

Improving the PDE Build Scripts
Three things that could be done to improve headless PDE builds:
  1. Store the path to plugins as a property. Then at least the paths could be replaced on the command line. This doesn't work very well if plugins are stored in several places. Those people are probably still stuck with custom scripts.
  2. Don't use Ant tasks that can only be run from within Eclipse. Also, taskdef, if you don't mind...
  3. Support generating a MANIFEST.MF from a build script for use in the IDE.

*That is why you use the description attribute on your main Ant targets.
** Maven has a pretty elegant solution for this; use the build to generate .projects files.

Proper grammar

Drew has taken me to task for taking him to task about the subjunctive (or what I perhaps erroneously called the "hypothetical conditional").

I mentioned that there are a lot of songs out there with misuage, but only one I know of that confronts the issue.

I Wish I Was A Lesbian by Loudon Wainwright III

Which apparently nerds love to make videos with.

Drew also says a little of that song goes a long way... which means this post should go insanely far.

Need 2 developers, as soon as possible, for a crisis

For real - I'm helping a company find 2 developers on very short notice for a few weeks of work with very good pay. They've got a crisis and noboby competent to handle it. It's not great work, but it's probably exciting, and it pays well. I'm essentially doing them a personal favor by trying to find two great people on extremely short notice.

The reasons behind this are complex/crazy, and I'll give you all the details if you're interested. The project is estimated (by me) at 3-6 weeks of work, full-time (at least), for 2 developers plus a support geek (who is already hired), starting just as soon as you can start work. (Tomorrow would be good.) The company is in Columbus but it wouldn't be strictly necessary for you to be here.

Qualifications:

* Smart
* Gets things done
* Good at debugging / figuring out problems
* Communicates well
* Working knowledge of:
** SQL
** Visual Basic
** ASP
** SQL Server
** IIS
** Telephony experience is a plus

...in that order :)

If it helps, this is work that I'd take if I could find some way to put my real job on hold.

If you're interested, please send me an email or call me as soon as possible. If you don't know how to contact me, please find somebody who does and get them to refer you - it's way better (from my point of view) if I know you or if you come with a recommendation from someone I trust.

I'll be doing the interviewing for this job.

Did I miss anything? Let me know.

I've also posted this job at LinkedIn.

I'm addicted to "Yacht Rock"

I dunno if you guys are down with channel 101 (the web programming channel where the lonely island - the guys behind "The Chronicles of Narnia" for SNL got their start). But some of the shows are pretty decent.

"Yacht Rock" is freakin' great.

Its a "Documentary" about the career starts of Michael McDonald, the Doobie Brothers and Kenny Loggins... but its a DRAMA. Hilarious.

I also recommend: "Laser Fart." Which is funnier than the name would lead you to believe. Basically its a spoof of superhero Movies/TV Shows.


And if you are really into it... check out "The 'Bu". Its the guys from the Lonely Island spoofing "The OC" very funny, too.

Skip Episodes 9, 10 and 11. They were made by some other guys after the Lonely Island troup left for SNL, and they are pure shit.

Other than that, poke around. The basic premise is: anyone can submit a show (a "pilot"). A crowd watches all the accepted submissions. If they like the pilot(if it gets voted in the top 5) it get put in "Prime Time" (in other words they ask them to make another). If they don't like it its a Failed Pilot... they don't ask you back. After you are in Prime Time, you get voted on for every submission (one show every month). If you get voted out or don't make a show for the month, you get cancelled. Neat concept. Apparently, they asked by FOX to do this for REAL television.

I used to put this on in the background while the band was recording, until they forced me to take it off because it was freaking them out. The structure of the show, as far as I can make out, is that in the opening the Octopus sees something with his telescope (from his treehouse) he wants to grab for his own. His buddy the peanut (or squash?) helps him take it, usually through theft, trickery, or swords and guns.

Deep Thoughts

This morning one of my favorite webcomics, made a comment about a news story that was circulating about Stephen Hawking and the Pope.

Anyway, the story resonated with me and Scott Kurtz blogged this paragraph by Carl Sagan.

"Those afraid of the universe as it really is, those who pretend to nonexistent knowledge and envision a Cosmos centered on human beings will prefer the fleeting comforts of superstition. They avoid rather than confront the world. But those with the courage to explore the weave and structure of the Cosmos, even where it differs profoundly from their wishes and prejudices, will penetrate its deepest mysteries."

This is a really awesome reference to an old side scrolling game called The Lemmings.

No link, just a funny story for the day.

A male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose, still heavily sedated from a difficult, four hour, surgical procedure. A young, student nurse appears to give him a partial sponge bath.

“Nurse,” he mumbles, from behind the mask. “Are my testicles black?”

Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, “I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet.”

He struggles to ask again, “Nurse, are my testicles black?”

Concerned that he may elevate his vitals from worry about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and sheepishly pulls back the covers. She raises his gown, holds his penis in one
hand and his testicles in the other. Then, she takes a close look and says,

“There's nothing wrong with them, Sir!”

The man pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her and says very slowly, "Thank you very much. That was wonderful, but, listen very, very closely...... Are-my-test-results-back?”
