first midlet!

howto: changing time on your linux machine

completed this J2ME tutorial last night. The Sun/Java Wireless toolkit made it easy to get up and running quickly. The JWTK has emulators, similiar to the emulators provided for doing WAP work. The guy who wrote the article for Sun also happens to be a big MINDSTORMS fan. He wrote this book, which has *full* instructions available online. Go Oreilly!

Next I’ll have to do the wireless tutorial.

happy birthday to me!

My wifey got me the Lego MINDSTORM Vision Command set, which I’m really excited about. I don’t have it yet 🙁 but soon… check out all these fun projects:

Doug’s LEGO Technic Tri-Star Wheel ATV and Robotics page
Core LEGO MINDSTORMS Programming: Unleash the Power of the Java Platform
LEGO® MINDSTORMS(tm) Internals

Found on… I just received an email from them for Initially I thought my domain renewal was coming up.. and then I realized that I didn’t have to renew for another 8 months or something.

Outliners. I’ve read about them alot on Here’s an interesting one written in Java. Wonder if this could be used instead of something like <cfa_tree> in Spectra.

I turn 27 at 7:23am PST. Karen took me to Mul’s Diner this morning, I had some great Texas french toast, eggs, bacon, and taters. Keep eating like that and I won’t see birthday #50. 🙂

Saw some fun stuff in the COMPUSA circular yesterday, after reading some articles trying to research a new headset. First, a bluetooth enabled headset for your wireless phone. Now your can have your phone in your bag or your pocket and just wear your headset. Nice. And the new Compaq IPAQ 3975. Very cool. 400Mhz processor (almost as fast as the Linux machine I have at home, faster than the server hosting this site). It’s Bluetooth enabled so you can get wireless data via a wireless bluetooth enabled cell phone, like this one.
