Finding Calnon...

Has anyone seen Mark?

UPDATE (1 July): Found him. :) Thanks to all those who contributed witty comments during my search. Mark was found this afternoon, in good health, but tired after a long day of work at camp.

UPDATE (30 June): For those who don't know him . . . a picture:

Ismo's 8th life

The Ismo PHP Framework is being resurected (hopefully). It's long been one of the frameworks I've been most interested in. However, due to other obligations the original developer, Joakim Andersson, was not able to continue it's development.

On the 23rd of May 2005, Joakim put a plea on the web site for a new Ismo development manager. So... I offered my services and now hope to continue the development of Ismo for as long as I can.

If anyone who wanders through here is interested in helping, please feel free to comment below or e-mail me at theideaman[at]sourceforget[dot]net.

Deer Park Alpha 1 - 3 minutes in

Ok, just had to blog one more quick thing on Deer Park Alpha 1.

I downloaded it, installed it, enjoy it. :)

And, if you decide to give it a try, check out this link: SVG Tetris. And if, after playing it, you're curious how it's built, either view the source (after pressing 'p' to pause the game) or view the source as text.

Enjoy. :)

Firefox future - Deer Park Alpha 1

Nothing like a wonderfully vague code name for the next release to get you excited about the future of web technology. Mozilla Firefox's next big release in the alpha stages of development. A quick perusal of the release notes will give you a warm fuzzy feeling about what's on the horizon for the web.

Note to the average user: don't use this release unless you're ready to have the browser crash during use. This is not intended to be a replacement for the current release, just Pavlov's bell for all those rabid web wolves out there.

Google's Summer of Code...

Google's done a nice thing this summer. They're sponsoring students to work on Open Source projects.

The program is called Summer of Code. Reading the requirements makes me want to reinroll. :)
