jQuery Mobile: Touch-Optimized Web Framework for Smartphones & Tablets

A unified, HTML5-based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms, built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation. Its lightweight code is built with progressive enhancement, and has a flexible, easily themeable design.

I started to convert my Beers, WebApp to JQuery instead of the iUI that I began about 2 years ago. The iUI project just doesn’t have enough going for it. I began today a bit during lunch and had the Media webapp that didn’t work well before modified by the end of lunch. Started on the Beer WebApp after work, finished the main 4 lists, All, Cellared, Deep Cellar, and Last 100 beers.

Latest stable version – 1.3.1

Cool but not rainy this morning, very overcast before actual sunrise.

Need to turn off my alarm and just wake up normally. I’ve been turning off the alarm after waking up and just letting myself want to get up before actually doing it. It has worked ok so far, sometimes I’m later sometimes earlier.

Booo! No Visual of the Transit of Venus, all cloudy here.

Checked in all the changes up to this point I have on my project at work, didn’t get an email from Chris or Kem about the things I need to do. I guess I just need to say it’s done and let them do a build.

Got home and Nicki was here, she went and got Subway even after I told her that I think I had enough spaghetti for her too. She left soon afterward, and left her Subway trash on the couch, not good. She also called last night and earlier today about the book she needed for class, obviously there was something that was suppose to come with the Astronomy book but didn’t in the whole book.

Nicki complained about her aches and pains again, seems another part of her body hurts as soon as another stops. She said it is mostly joins and gets bad enough for her to call out of work. She has mentioned it to the Nurse Practitioner and has gotten really no response except to have an MRI. Well seems a bit overboard to her and me as well. I’ve heard of a lot of young people coming down with certain chronic ailments more often than it seemed my generation did.

I made changes to the Beer web-code that now requires a login and should make it so bad things do not happen to the database due to crawlers and robots on the web.

I tried with Brian’s help to get a CVS thing on my site, instead I just found out that I really don’t have tty access to my server. It’s the only way he knows how to make it work, I’ll look around to see if there is another way, I haven’t seen one yet.

Brian and I ended up going to the Movie Stop and picking out some movies, I got the two that came out just today, Safe House with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds along with Disney’s John Carter of Mars. Then I also reserved the next Sherlock Holmes and the Avengers. Used up about half of the $100 card I got for the rebate of my contact lenses that I just received. We then stopped in at Parma and got to see Lauren and Brian had dinner and we both had beers. The sun was out finally today, it was just before sunset and we couldn’t have seen it from the house due to all the trees to the west of us. If we had forgone the trip and went right back and got the solar scope we could have seen something but didn’t feel it was that important. I don’t figure I’ll be around in 117 years when it happens again, but who knows 🙂

Up with the alarm today, it’s Friday so it’s important to get to work early so I can leave early as well. Dark intermittent clouds most of the day, sun came out a few times but nothing spectacular.

Ate lunch a bit early and was out in the bush about 11:30. Found a few more “new” mushrooms, I think. some small red/orange ones (sticky-wet), some 1″ to 1.5″ ones flat and grey/blue, some yellow/white in a bunch with *MORE*. Crawling through the bushes and then almost laying on the ground to take photos I felt like things were crawling all over my body when I got back inside. Not to mention I was sweaty and got bit by a large black ant on the ball of my left hand that stung for quite some time.

Rained about 1:30pm or so, just a nice summer rain, no lightning that I could tell. Soaked everything really well, at least by work it did.

Looking into CVS (Concurrent Versions System) for home to allow me to keep my website and other code under source control. It would really help me in the long run, especially when I make changes and blow things up. There are also GUI adaptations for Mac and Windows.

Fernando and I were going to hit the NEW Tin Lizzy location over in Dunwoody but they are not going to be open until sometime in July now.

Changed my elections for my 401K, I really have no idea what I’m doing, just trying to get things in some sort of average, I was into lots of risky funds when the shit hit the fan, I lost a bunch from what I can tell, not really worrying about it and forging ahead.

Had some dinner and a beer over at the Tilted Kilt off of Old Peachtree, saw AnnaK as she was leaving and got to meet a couple of the girls there, Amanda (pronouced like Armada without the ‘r’) a cute black gal with Tina Turner 80’s hair. Then another gal who I forget her name with some WONDEROUS tattoos, want to have a photo shoot with her.

Came home after and Nicki was at the house, getting mad since Jorael was working late again but she acted like she thinks it is something else and not work. She left about 9pm and I did as well to head off to the Taco Mac for a few beers, had a few and saw the gals, Julie and Cindy and chatted with them, the cute couple, Christine and Dale?

Home and to bed.

Whilst the factory is doing its factory-ing thing, we’ve decided that we wanted to give you guys a sneaky peak into the murky underbelly of what drives the Triggertrap v1 and Triggertrap Shield.

If you fancy having a poke around in the code, it’s available now on Github; Feel free to fork us, and fork us hard.

Rainy and warm, only 59 when I woke up, started the day with shorts and a hoodie.

Brian called in the morning to tell me he had a small fender bender, but no fenders were bent. The lady who hit him in the rear just barely tapped him and neither saw any damage so they exchanged info and went along their way after the police got there.

PhotoSmith, a cool iPad program for importing photos and doing a bit before syncing with Lightroom, is delayed again. Looks like it’s going to be about a month behind schedule at a minimum. With a small Agile team they should be able to have added a few things and then released instead of holding so long, well at least in theory they should have been. I’m just a bit excited to get my hands on something that seems to be exactly what I was looking for to begin with when I purchased it about a year ago. I’m thankful they are giving v1 users a free upgrade, I know I would buy it anyway so I guess I shouldn’t be so impatient.

Due to my contact lens purchase I’ve messed up my finances for the beginning of the month, now I’ve taken out over $200 out of savings and need another $50 to $100 today to fill up the tank and then allow myself to have some fun on Wednesday @ Parma Trivia. Just about the same amount of money I spent on my contacts. I wish I had at least tried to use the Flex Spending Debit Card before using my Bank Debit. 🙁

I only weighed 212 this morning, not sure if I really am loosing weight or if I just didn’t eat well yesterday. I’ve also been a bit below the weather, a bit of back and forth from the bathroom today, and tummy not feeling well. I’ve only ate a McD’s breakfast boritto, two pears and some Tostitos corn chips.

Texted KimO about meeting up for some dinner tonight over at the Los Arcos, dinner a bit later than I would do but cool enough. Got the car washed and then had a beer over at the Shroom before, went home messed with the car some more and then went over to meet her. She was already there, and we sat down. I felt like I hold the conversation, not very give & take imo. They didn’t have Riesling, damn, the second place to be out of it, and then they didn’t have white zif either. I had suggested that we head over to the Shroom for another drink, she said something about messing up her routine or something on that order if she stayed up late, instead we said goodbye, with a hug outside near her car, maybe I should have tried a bit of something more, nothing too much but Damn It! I want a bit more from the relationship than friends, maybe some benefits but I really do want a true relationship. I’m really not sure if she is open to more or not, mostly I believe NOT.

Photosmith, is out as of April, 26 2011

Lightroom lite for iPad? It’s $17.99 USD, I may have found a reason to get an iPad2.

By Sean McCormack … Topics News > New Products & Announcements Techniques > Software

“For the longest time Lightroom users with an iPad have wished for some kind of a ‘Lightroom Lite’ app. Of course the iPad is quite limited in memory terms, and CPU for that matter. But that still doesn’t mean that there couldn’t be a version that let you import images in the field, tag them, rate them, and do a bit of general management work. Adobe have been busy with iPad apps like Ideas and even a version of Photoshop. But no hint of anything Lightroom like.

In the meantime Photosmith has come to fruition. Think of it as a slice of Lightroom Library and you get a feel for the app. Obviously it’s a lot more pared down, but it’s eminently useful none the less. You can access all the images imported onto the device via the Camera Connection Kit, (or similar third party device), and via the ‘Saved Photos’ and ‘Camera Roll’ album (no videos though).

As to getting photos (and metadata) out, you simply download the Photosmith plugin from and install it via the Plug-In Manager. Bear in mind Photosmith must be running at all times during sync, a limitation created by Apple. You can’t switch to another app either.”
