• I can smell the fear in you…

    March 5, 2010 Jake DiMare

    The ability to smell fear has now been proven via scientific process. Of course, I am not sure anyone ever doubted the possibility. I’ve known since I was a boy fear causes an incredibly salient physiological experience which can easily be sensed in others in a variety of ways. This is mostly because I has…

  • Here comes the (virtual) sun…

    March 4, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Anytime I work with Sun’s xVM VirtualBox I am left with the desire to write them a thank you letter. This may be one of the most powerful pieces of free software you have ever seen. It basically allows you to set up any number of virtual machines on your computer and load different operating…

  • Well that's just plain silly…

    March 3, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Honda will unveil a new concept vehicle at the 80th International Motor Show tomorrow. The vehicle is basically a reverse trike with an electric power plant. It is designed for city folks who commute alone…it only seats one person. Although the idea sounds really funny to me it looks pretty sleek…as most Honda vehicles do.…

  • Life is a rose garden…

    March 2, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I made some serious progress in the quest to write, record and mix a complete piece of music this past weekend. The catalyst was the discovery of a piece of software called Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and music composition and editing environment. Unlike Ardour, which will play an important role when I want to…

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey

    March 1, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Last night I watched Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke’s classic on Blue Ray. Although I watched it many years ago it was still quite a novel experience. This time around I was much more interested in the creative and realistic ways they addressed environmental issues such as low-g/zero-g and the use of music combined…

  • What a week…

    February 26, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Last Saturday night BetaCat, my 3 year old male started acting funny. He was straining to urinate and attempting to urinate in ridiculous places with no luck. He’s been a stress ball ever since we moved in with Jackie so I just wrote it off as more neurotic behavior. Then on Sunday morning he didn’t…

  • Keeping the flow…

    February 23, 2010 Jake DiMare

    These last couple of days have been ridiculously busy but I want to keep blogging every weekday. I’m developing a Flash screen takeover for one of my clients. They are using it to advertise the unveiling of their new site…so it’s not going to be some annoying ad for a hybrid car or anything. It…

    February 22, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I discovered BetaCat was really sick yesterday. He has been at the Angel Memorial animal hospital in JP since 10 AM yesterday and will probably be there for another day…it was serious…but he is expected to recover. On the bright side, I went over to my buddy’s house where the bike is stored for the…

  • Trip on this…

    February 19, 2010 Jake DiMare

    I fell asleep the other night mulling something about the universe over in my mind and I need more input. Perhaps by sharing some reader will either be an astrophysicist or know one who can explain. I already tried asking Neil deGrasse Tyson on Facebook (no kidding) but he’s yet to get back to me. Everything…

    February 18, 2010 Jake DiMare

    Continuing my series on web development stuff for hacks, this post includes the necessary information to detect a user’s IP address (as well as other variables) with SSI on an Apache server. SSI stands for Server Side Includes and they are directives which are placed in HTML pages and evaluated on the server while the…
