Malkin just can’t control her racism

And, like most racists, she forgets herself from time to time and forgets to distinguish between illegal immigrants and Mexican Americans. It makes no difference to her, of course, but they are usually a bit more scrupulous in their obfuscation.

Apple Has Learned The Importance of Play. We Should Too

The most important lesson is that adulthood, and teen-hood are not demarcation points for a reduced interest in play – in fact the converse may be the case, meaning play may in fact become *more* important as we get older. And with our high school graduation rates at 50% in our 20 largest cities, something is obviously and seriously

The Daily Show is NOT Yellow Journalsim

OMG - What is this - people searching for  the phrase -"daily show is yellow journalism"

VIA WikiPedia
Yellow journalism is journalism that downplays legitimate news in favor of eye-catching headlines that sell more newspapers. It may feature exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, sensationalism, or unprofessional practices by news media organizations or journalists.

OK -
1.The daily show -( in a non partison way ) - uses actual video and sound bites from the people they are spoofing that is not Yellow Journalism
2. The daily show and comedy central were not news media orginizations last time i checked.

So the Monkeys are mad when its repotrted that McSame /' Paleface lie. TskTsk

 Want a real example of Yellow Journalism - read any Rag owned by Rupy Murdoch or watch  5 minutes of the Fox Tainted Media News Network.

Hackyou gesuntite - Flash Edition Part 2

1 to design the hardware , choose and integrate a BIOS so chips can talk to each other
2 Create a environment for users to run programs
3. Create a application/program people can interface with

What Is Flash ?
Flash is a computer program that allows developers to create vector based content ( images that scale without lose of detail )
Flash CS and a graphics tablet or some geometric algorithms can create a application.
Flashes development language is called action script.
Flash applets run/display/execute in a web browser or media specific player.

Flash programs can be crappy , because lazy developers and non programmers dont know about memory holes.

Hear your hard drive or fan screaming away while a flash movie plays thats letting a endless loop run unattended and the API makes creating such loops to easy.

The problem with the current version is even greater because adobe has allowed external class definitions to be modifiable.

Before all flash classes were predefined on startup and called internally, so a external text file for veriables was all that was needed, flash did not even care how you defined the text document as .txt or .opc or .xyz the player assumed the called file would be ascii text.

Now its expected that the text file have a XML extension but thier is no special flash DTD doc and anyone can makeup the XML tags. Is it really even xml?

Then there is the use of external class call documents, this would be fine except they are also in ascii format and end user writable.
so joe blows ThumbMC.as document will not be the same as jim smiths ThumbMC.as document.....

What is exposed to who : FLASH edition Part 1

For any minor player or curious end user the current ide control wars must seem confusing. API, IDE, SDK see or read about any one of those and your in technological hell.

I have a computer program and run it, seems simple.

In just a basic technical description of this process, no less then 2 engineers or engineer groups are required to make it work. For any mass scale pc and software combination that becomes at least 3 groups of people.

1 to design the hardware , choose and integrate a BIOS so chips can talk to each other
2 Create a environment for users to run programs
3. Create a application/program people can interface with

And even in the case of an SGI or Apple within one company those -divisions- are all separate.

But Joe you ask, how do these programs that jump across versions of a operating system (XP to Vista) or different operating systems (windows to mac) work???


Via Wikipedia
All of the modern meanings seem to be rooted in its widespread use as slang throughout the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), starting in the 1960s. There, the original meaning of "hack" was a quick, elaborate and/or bodged solution students devised for technical obstacle; it was used with hacker, meaning one who discovers and implements a hack.

Via Wikipedia
An application programming interface (API) is a set of functions, procedures or classes that an operating system, library or service provides to support requests made by computer programs.[1]
* Language-dependent APIs are available only in a particular programming language. They utilize the syntax and elements of the programming language to make the API convenient to use in this particular context.
* Language-independent APIs are written in a way that means they can be called from several programming languages. This is a desired feature for a service-style API which is not bound to a particular process or system and is available as a remote procedure call.

Via Wikipedia
In computing, an integrated development environment (IDE) is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, a compiler and/or interpreter, build automation tools, and (usually) a debugger. Sometimes a version control system and various tools are integrated to simplify the construction of a GUI. Many modern IDEs also have a class browser, an object inspector, and a class hierarchy diagram, for use with object oriented software development [1].

Via Wikipedia
A software development kit (SDK or "devkit"), also known as a native developer kit (NDK) is typically a set of development tools that allows a software engineer to create applications for a certain software package, software framework, hardware platform, computer system, video game console, operating system, or similar platform.
It may be something as simple as an application programming interface in the form of some files to interface to a particular programming language or include sophisticated hardware to communicate with a certain embedded system. Common tools include debugging aids and other utilities often presented in an IDE. SDKs also frequently include sample code and supporting technical notes or other supporting documentation to help clarify points from the primary reference material.

Hey you did not back link wikipedia.!!!

Well if you cant get to a page in wikipedia yourself and type search the letters sdk please stop reading here...............

McCain Hates Troops. says Vets all suck ( except hims)

John McCain has not voted for ANY Veterens Benifits in 4 years.

The same 4 years that have had 1000 vet suicide attempts a month, broken military hospitals and PSD.

McCain who crashed 5 navy planes during his time in the military, seems to think Saying POW  means more then getting tax dollars to our wounded.

Via CooksandLiars

But that’s not where McCain and his party end on their false “support. As a diary at Booman Tribune detailed back in February, Mr Straight Talk is full of doubletalk.

    McCain voted against the Webb amendment calling for adequate troop rest between deployments.

    McCain voted against an amendment that would provide $20 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for health care facilities.

i have had to unsubscribed from Techmeme today AND write about it..

I will admit that the actual writing of content for my blogs has been small the past 6 months, but with all the Alpha and beta testing of 2d and 3d interfaces the NDAs keep me kind of silent. I still read feeds from over 100 sources every day but that is my limit .

The past few months techmeme has become just an advertising vehicle for Arrington media and microsoft. Arrington and Om are just guys with big mouths and i am sick of uninformed opinion passed off as news.

No more techcrunch, or Techmeme feeds or links and GigaOm stories are now trash.
