The Angel Developer

Saturday Jul 13, 2013 - 3:58 PM“Hey, I got this idea!”
How many times have you heard that? As a developer, I have heard it many times as someone tries to draft me to work on their project. Ideas are ubiquitous but don't be afraid of getting involved. A new venture needs money. When it doesn't have money, it gets angel investors. When an entrepreneur needs a prototype to get money, they need an angel developer.
You may be the key to unlocking millions of dollars.

The Gall!

Wednesday Jul 10, 2013 - 12:04 AMSometimes, I am not the most positive person. I have learned to not fear or shun the dark, but use it like a dank mine of ideas-- like a repository of jam-side-down toast. Sometimes I feel this swell of negativity when people get away something. I am amazed by the gall of some people. But maybe I shouldn't be galled at people. Maybe people who push their luck are pushing the boundaries for us all.

2012: My Personal Year In Review

Monday Dec 31, 2012 - 8:00 PMI debated writing this. I have a TONNE of stuff to do, but I thought: it’s New Years Eve. The year is played out. No matter how much I have on my plate, going MIA for an hour it's going to cost me some project's completion. The ship is going to sail or sink. I’m not going to drink to excess, so I can work tomorrow if I wish, while others sleep in and nurse hangovers.
I speak in pop-culture metaphors. It’s the best way I can describe what I want to convey. Forgive me. Darmok at Jalad.

Business : This Year

Total Recall, Totally Lame

Friday Aug 10, 2012 - 2:02 AMI was intrigued by the cool looking remake of Total Recall. The original movie was cheesy. This new movie is much worse. That's a shame: the look of this movie is great. The cast is very strong, if they're given good material (ie. Colin Farrell: stop reading, watch In Bruges and come back). The logic of the movie is amazingly sad. Here are the movies it lends too heavily from:
  • I, Robot
  • Minority Report
  • Serenity
  • Fifth Element
  • Blade Runner
Here are the movies that do not seem to influence this movie:

    Greenhouse Built From Scrap

    Thursday May 24, 2012 - 10:58 PM

    Renovation projects have left a lot of junk around our house. Bits of wood, lengths of metal studs, screws and the like. It would cost a fair chunk of money have all of the potentially useful crap hauled away. Instead, I turned it into a greenhouse.

    How To Reverse the Effects of BPA

    Thursday Feb 16, 2012 - 3:18 PM

    If you're wondering how you and your dog are both getting fat, it could be as simple as canned foods. Many canned products are lined with a protective coating so that the contents of the food (like the acidity of canned tomatoes) doesn't interact with the metal to create erosion and spoilage. That protective layer is commonly made of Bis-phenol A (BPA).
