I recently got back into doing some android development. Its been an adjustment period to say the least. One of those adjustments has been the slight differences of working on a Mac. I came across a bug today, that baffled me for a while and required some of my best “google-fu” to figure out. I ended up at this site: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=38371 The problem is essentially the AVD manager can’t re-open a virtual device that was on a second monitor on a Mac. The work around is to edit the following file ~/.android/avd/.avd/emulator-user.ini   and change… Read Article →

An interesting article came through my news feeds today, something that I’ve been too busy to really notice. This isn’t something new, just an update to a platform google released about 18 months ago now, but I’ve not even noticed. It’s called Google Panda. You think I am trying to be funny, or joke around, but this is a serious project, aimed at improving google’s search results for everyone. It was named by the engineer that initially worked on it, and it is a query filter. Google Panda, was initially released on February 24th 2011,… Read Article →

On August 25th, my wife and I decided to try a new restaurant for our date night.  We typically go to the same restaurants, and felt like we wanted something new. There is a new Rouge Boeuf that opened near our house a couple months ago, and it is usually pretty packed ( typical sign of a good restaurant, lots of people want to go ).  One of the reasons we opted for this restaurant, was the “bring your own wine”.  We typically have some decent bottles of wine at home, and getting wine at… Read Article →

This is probably just another rant, one of thousands around about gas prices, and how outrageous they are, if that is what you guessed, then you are right, but there is a twist.  Last weekend, we went on a quick road trip to Ottawa ( from Montreal ) to visit some family.  That isn’t the purpose of this story, but what I wanted to flag down was the price difference of gas between there and here. The price when we filled up in Ottawa on Friday evening was 1.229$/liter in Ottawa, and 1.329$/Liter in Montreal.  This… Read Article →

Today we decided to take the kids out for a different kind of outing. Something that wasn’t too far, something not too expensive ( taking 2 adults and 3 kids, can get expensive ), and all in all something we don’t do very often.  We took them to La Ferme Guyon, off of highway 10, just outside Montreal.  This place is a combination of farmer’s market, artisan store, nursery ( tree not kids ), small animal farm and a butterfly aviary.  Yeah, I know that sounds like a lot, but this place is pretty big….

I made a simple but effective ( for me ) discovery this week-end.  I’d been ripping some of my DVD’s with Handbrake ( so that i can put the physical DVD in storage, and clear some room ), and was uploading the m4v ( default settings in Handbrake ) to my DLink NAS ( model 321 ). Unfortunately, the only way i could see the movies, was via a samba share.  The TV couldn’t see the movies (but had no problem seeing the NAS ). The solution is simple, rename the m4v file extensions to… Read Article →

For those of you that are here regularly, you’ve probably noticed that i haven’t written much in the last couple of week, I’ve kinda been busy with other things.  I’ve got another post in the works ( describing the situation ) but i first wanted to write about my new job, and the reasons i left the last one.  Like this?

Well, i don’t know how to start this, so i’ll just dive right in.  I’ve been an aquarium entheusiast most of my life.  i’ve always loved the peaceful tranquility that an aquarium brings to whatever room its in.  My dream for the longest time was to have a aquarium wall ( an aquarium the width,not height, of a wall, that you could look through into the next room).  Being a home owner, and knowing that that actually entails, i’ve re-adjusted my dream ( at least until i become a multi-billionaire, and can build the house… Read Article →
