New Things are FUN

by on Jun.20, 2012, under General News, Ramblings

Well hello all my faithful followers..
Today.. today was a good day.. Yeah it was about 100F.. yeah it was about 60% humidity.. Yeah my whole house has the air conditioning working overtime.. but what else is new?

My pen pal from Japan sent me a letter.. not only was it a letter.. but it was freaking awesome.. it was a letter on a traditional Japanese Fan.. An (Uchiwa) (wordpress won’t allow me to use hiragana characters, sorry) .. it was freaking cool.. and it’s neat to have something that was in Japan.. I swear someday I’m gonna go over there..

Next.. yeah… this is the big news.. my BattleBox came in.. that’s right.. I’m almost ready to play Warmachine at the Local Game Store .. I need to do some massive painting in the coming week to get ready.. but .. yeah.. AWESOME.. Here are a couple pictures of the two armies.. all put together..

 

Until next time my lovelies..

Standardizing

by on Jun.07, 2012, under Ramblings

Okay.. so most developers know, standardization is key to good code.  Now when I was in school learning C and Cobol, we were taught to indent code in thus style:

function someFunc($a, $b) {
    echo "Do something";
    if (1==1) {
        echo "Do Something";
    }
}

Now, I’ve been doing a lot of work in WordPress over the last couple years and have been told I should be formatting and standardizing on the K&R formatting system.. This is counter-intuitive to what I learned.. 🙂 But I guess I need to change..
The K&R system is like thus:

function someFunc($a, $b)
{
    echo "Do something";
    if (1==1) {
        echo "Do Something";
    }
}

This will be a heck of a learning curve.. but I’ve already started changing my editors to do the new K&R style.. man it’s going to be a long road…

You wouldn’t think that one “ENTER” would make much of a difference, but when you have been doing something for 15 years the same way.. change will be rough..
