Horsin’ Around Again!

Now I’ve got a horse racing calculator!  Don’t throw your money away till you pretend play.  It’s a rough sport that can leave you pennyless.  If you don’t learn to swim, you will drown.  Same with horse racing.  If you don’t learn the game before you play, you will lose.

Time to learn Postgresql

I just learned about the differences in MySQL and Postgresql.  This will be my third database language.  They are all similar, except in what they can do.  I’m wondering why MySQL is not up to speed with dynamic data in functions and triggers.

I’m anxious to get my bartering data system set up.  It’s already coded in SQL PL, so hopefully this will be a short translation to Postgresql.  Then all I need to do is update my tools for manipulating items on the craft board.

I’m only 1 summer away from an associates degree, then I’m off to the U of O.   I can’t wait!

Finally! I get Trigonometry!

You don’t know how long I have been wanting to master the unit circle!
I’m thinking of making a rewrite of ‘The Circle Won’t be Broken’ song.
Just so I won’t forget all I’ve been working to memorize.

Once I get the lyrics down I’ll post them. Or better yet sing it on youtube! LOL

And I’m already dreaming up code for quilting using polar coordinates. I can hardly wait to see what calculus will bring. I was told I could write a knitting script if I knew calculus.

But now I have a week to catch up on my database implementation for the craft board.


Aced it !!! Great Winter Term!

I have three essays I’ve written that I want to put into my portfolio. I also learned about programming next to the core in (MASM). To top that off, I learned how to design a database from the ground up. I’m continuing with advanced database manipulations next term. Now I’m on to Trig, Graphic Design, and Critical Thinking. And if these are all too easy, I’m taking a P.E. course too.

I need some cool graphics to post my special essays on. That writing class was one to remember.

Be back tomorrow.

Follow this project at Kickstart!

I wanted to finish before Christmas. But school, job, flu, and basic life has slowed down the timeline. My teacher told me about kickstart.com, and I decided to post the project there. If didn’t have to spend so many hours working I could just do school and web development on the Craft Board. Here is my blog just for this project: Craftboard at Blogspot.com for further reading.

Wow! New Tree Component that is XML driven.


Necessity breeds invention

Post Panel with new XML capabilities!

I needed an xml driven data viewer.  I created a tree component that was fed an object and had no other capabilities except to display a label in a file browser fashion.  It suited me fine for a while.  But to search my component for data was a chore.   It took XML and turned it into an object.  Now it can take the XML and listen for any changes to it, then give back the display element for each branch.  So I can get sub XML elements that the user clicks.  This opens up a new set of search functions for the component.

I’m so happy about this!  The posting panel is nearing completion.  This week I’ll start the search panel with new search abilities.
