The more I see

The more I see about humans the less I believe.

You get Mr know it all, who will admit its in his skill set but he can’t be bothered to learn it. I suppose its not in you skill set then.

Then you get the shy guy with the ego… The ego built on what he reads online in blogs. He typically creates a problem for a solution so that other developers can spend 70% of their time working around the problem created by his solution to fix a problem that never existed.

Then you get the short stinky fucker who’s just plain useless.

Religion against the consumer act?

Surely selling FALSE hope and healing and bullshit is against the consumer protection act?

MVC Page Layout

Demonstrating how to use XML to customise a Microsoft MVC 3 page layout.

Step 1: Define XML structure to represent page layout

Step 2: Create a controller which calls the View and sends through the XML file name for the layout

Step 3: Create a view which can take the XML and construct it self using Razor

Step 4: Add Ice Cream and enjoy the show

Daily WTF (well yesterday)

I came across this method at work, it lives all cuddly and warm in the controller class of a MVC3 site returning the CSS for the view.

My understanding about the MVC pattern is that you seperate your views, models and controllers and not create steak and ale pie with it.

Message Queues and the evil cowboy design

Hello. So I am at work and pulling my hair out.

Why? You have 3 systems using the same login information. System 1 locks a user system 2 does not pick it up and system 3 stares into the darkness waiting for sql replication.

The answer to this absurd sequence of events is as simple as a wcf service and a message queue.

My theory on DNA Memory

I have to wonder if it is possible for DNA to store memories of life altering events that might be handy for future generations. Like you have bits in computers you have molecules in DNA.

1 molecule represents 1 bit :Hydrogen = 1 and Oxygen = 0. But reading on wikipedia you get 5 types of molecules in a DNA string, so you can possible create a 5 bit complex type like hexadecimal optimized to store images for future generations like a natural camera.

Then you can alter these DNA strings in sperm before fertilizing the female specimen to bullshit the kid into believing that its grand mother looked like Sharon Osbourne and not Courtney Love.

Extinct Species

I just love the logic behind these theories as to why species go extinct

Life in London

31 years since my speculated birth I arrived in London. I have no idea where I am coming from but rumour has it that I might be from another solar system.

So how does London rate for daily life?

1. Weather

Weird, one moment it is pissing down with rain and the next moment it is sunshine? All and all I don’t mind the weather.

2. Transport

It is amazing that you can go anywhere without a car. Friends coming over via a  boat. Can almost guarantee your travel time (except for today with signal failure on the DLR). Can take a bus to ASDA or TESCO. Really spoiled.

3. Training

Running at sea level is amazing, coming from 1600m above sea level to 1m above sea level really makes it easier. The cold does not make it any harder.

4. The people

The people in general are kind and friendly. The tourists are a little annoying. The kids are spoilt brats (I would seriously give them a lot of hidings if I were the parents). There are so many different cultures and languages.

5. The City

Really amazing. So much to see and so much to do. I love it. You can walk around for hours and just see more and more things. The architecture is really good and the buildings are well maintained. The modern buildings blend in with the old buildings and vice versa. Proud to be here.
