I’ve been fairly quiet on the blog the past two weeks. This has been because I have been head down in code catching up from the holidays and being sick. I know all to well how abstract and vague I’ve been on what The Project is. I’m still shooting for a grand unveiling upon the [...]

This has been a personally hard week for The Project. Iin moving the data structures to MySQL as a database I had to also start developing Java servlet code. The reason for this is that it creates both the ability to have a Web-API for any number of clients: iOS, Android, Win, Mac, etc… while [...]

This weak (sic) has been full of excitement. Thanks to the surgery which left me doped pretty much all week, I’ve gotten far less done than I wanted to. This is right down to having to push off an appointment from Friday to Monday as well as completely missing important mail from my land lady. [...]

Apparently, WordPress tracks how the blog does in a year. This was a good year for the blog. The stats are here at this link.

With surgery on Tuesday coupled with the winter blast closing all local schools for two days; things slowed down this week for the project. I wish things were moving faster. Personally, I wish I could do more but I take each day as it comes. This week I started on improving the data entry system [...]

I’m back to wandering around the house in a somewhat tipsy manner. The tonne of Halcion they put me on wore off. I slept from 3 until 9:30. Now I have a mouthful of temporary apparatus. Smile picture in a few days when I am less self-conscious. Obviously there is hunger (having to eaten since [...]

The office has a nice tranquil room to let the drugs take over. At this point I am vaguely relaxed and laid back. The room has a lounge with a nice tribal-like blanket, an air purifier, several mood candles and a machine playing ocean sounds. For my last procedure while I was here they gave [...]

Today is the day that my dental work, occurs. Last night I was prepped by sleeping with Prince Valium and this morning I have taken a Halcion. I will be in procedure for roughly 5 hours.  The initial effects of he drug are only beginning to knock on the outside or to my brain. Just [...]

A happy new year to all! May we all join in peace with the shared knowledge that for the next month we shall all be writing “20134″ The reason I put “Vacation” in quotes like that, is that when you are the sole coder on a project of your own devising for your own release [...]

Important Java tip: In a try-catch-finally block, finally is always called. Do not assume that you are in finally because your try threw an exception. Cleaning up resources that you built in try during finally will really make your program fail.

Now, I’m honestly trying to not work on the project specifics except during the work week of Monday – Friday. Granted, like everyone else; I find a project I like; I dive in with both feet. Ironically, the average diver would probably hazard trying to go in hands first. But, then again; I’m not a [...]

With the holidays, the usual entertainment segment of the blog has been on holiday. We do promise not one, but two post Sing Off wrap-ups. I’m pleased to announce that many of you really seemed to enjoy the Armchair Judge; so we’ll be bringing her on as permanently as she wishes to participate. But onto [...]

Erin and I have been discussing the episode and you can expect our write ups before the holiday. But before we put them up I need to put up what seems like a gratuitous tweet. Nick Lachey: ‏(@NickLachey) {(post)} I want to thank all 10 groups for making this season of #singoff the most fun yet!! [...]

A few thoughts going into Monday’s Sing-Off Season 4 Finale (this is being written before Monday’s show and does not take into account any of Monday’s performances). Each of the three groups left has a different strength. Vocal Rush has my heart; Ten has my head; Home Free has my ear. Vocal Rush is full of youthful [...]

We’re coming to the end of the Armchair Director (and Judge’s) posts on the Sing Off for 2013. The ratings seem to indicate that this will definitely be back for next season. Hopefully, they can find a way to put it on the schedule more than once in a year. granted, I’m a very greedy [...]

I typically keep my posts about politics and my political beliefs to my personal Facebook. However, I will admit that I have been on a constant  push to put all my content creation onto this blog. I have described it as “All things ‘Lord Andrei’.” As a result, I hope I don’t frighten off too [...]

This is going to be short and sweet. But after a few days of being utterly distracted with other things on the blog and endless phone calls today; I got the live data from the server to show up in the app. It formats correctly and even sorts on the fly. Now we’re cooking!

Episode 6 - “Judges’ Choice” The groups still in the game – Home Free, Ten, Vocal Rush, and The Filharmonic. Home Free – five men in their twenties, super-tight harmonies, clear tenor lead with the occasional toss to the uber-bass. Lots of performing experience at festivals. They consider themselves “country a cappella” but they are proving [...]

My quick rundown on the three Ultimate Sing-Off match-ups from Episode 5 AcoUstKats vs VoicePlay – “Eye Of The Tiger” Well, it was very entertaining. They were totally transparent about this being pre-staged this time. The show seemed to be trying to keep that secret up to this point. Acoustikats lead lost control of the [...]
