Moving the Blog Back

Posted 01-20-2010 at 04:46 AM by CoderMan

I'm moving my blogging back to my website. It has been fun blogging here, but it is more advantageous to blog at my own domain:

First Java Applet: Logician

Posted 01-19-2010 at 04:57 AM by CoderMan

I wrote a little applet called Logician, which is similar to the game Master Mind. Hardly a unique applet, of course, but it was a good way for me to "warm up" and learn a lot of the API. It is available here:

Open Office to Web: Be Careful

Posted 01-18-2010 at 03:06 AM by CoderMan

Small tip: Be careful when copying text from an Open Office document to your web browser. I copied from an OO document to my Movable Type editor, only to find out when I posted that the formatting was all messed up -- specifically the spacing, margins, and line breaks.

I went back to the Movable Type editor, switch to HTML mode, and I saw that there was a whole bunch of junk in the HTML such as inline styling and extra return characters. It took me about half-an-hour to remove all...

Posted 01-14-2010 at 10:25 PM by CoderMan
