[Fixed] Ubuntu 9.10 & Compiz Breaks VNC

So, found out while trying to VNC into my work box, that the “Visual Effects” in Ubuntu breaks the built-in GNOME VNC server – what happens is you can input text, click on controls, but changes are not refreshed into the view (the view isn’t “Damaged”). The current workaround seems to be either moving back ...

Buried Pretty Deep (Snow)

Buried Pretty Deep (Snow)
We’re buried pretty deep now – looks like a bit over 1 foot (hey, it’s a lot for NJ) and it’s still coming down. Lisa just asked how we’re going to handle digging out… uhh… yeah, a plan would be good. Kicker for today was the local newspaper: “Woodbridge Snow Plow Driver Finds Wandering Seal” ...

Official Google Blog: Introducing Google Buzz: “We’ve relied on other services’ openness in order to build Buzz (you can connect Flickr and Twitter from Buzz in Gmail), and Buzz itself is not designed to be a closed system. Our goal is to make Buzz a fully open and distributed platform for conversations. We’re building on ...

[FIXED] Eclipse Issues with Clicking on Ubuntu/GNOME

For the last few months, have moved most of my work programming from the Mac to Ubuntu (first convenience via VMs, recently because I switched jobs and at the new employer it was that or Windows) which has mostly gone will, though there were some issues around Eclipse UI gotchas, notably: Sometimes buttons wouldn’t let ...

Crucible 2.1 Out

Crucible 2.1 also supports the new pre-commit review creation functionality recently added to theĀ Atlassian IDE Connector for Eclipse. This plugin from Tasktop, the makers of Mylyn, is a must have for Eclipse users who use Crucible (or Bamboo, or JIRA, or FishEye). http://blogs.atlassian.com/devtools/2009/11/crucible21released.htmlлегла This looks pretty nice – pre-commit workflow is a nice addition – ...

“Sakai Courseware Management” – *the* Sakai Book

This may be old news to others, but I finally have my copy of the new “Sakai Courseware Management” book (courtesy of the folks over at Packt) and more surprisingly have even been able to carve out time to read the contents. For people who may not have been aware, this is the book that ...

BDD with easyb

Recently I’ve grown increasingly fond of the concepts embodied in the “Behavior Driven Development” (BDD) outgrowth of “Test Driven Development” (TDD) and “Domain Driven Design” (DDD) . BDD is a neat twist on TDD and DDD that strives to more closely tie automated tests with both the “ubiquitous language” terminology espoused in DDD, along with ...

Blackboard buys Angel Learning – Washington Business Journal:

Blackboard buys Angel Learning – Washington Business Journal “Education software maker Blackboard Inc., which was losing money a year ago, reported a break-even quarter and announced plans to acquire fellow education software maker Angel Learning Inc. for $95 million in cash and stock.” Another one bites the dust…

Microsoft & Desktop Web Apps

Hmm… been a while since I vanity blogged šŸ™‚ I was using my Mac with the Universal Access panel’s VoiceOver turned on (which is really annoying if you don’t tweak the verbosity settings) as part of some accessibility testing that I was doing with Sakai. An interesting side-effect of my testing came when Microsoft’s MyDay ...

Desire2Blog: Sakai Seems to Think It’s Over

Desire2Blog: Sakai Seems to Think It’s Over: Maybe Sakai thinks they are finished with this thing, but I’m pretty sure that D2L, SFLC, Blackboard, and all the other players are expecting it to continue on for quite some time. It could very well be that their input from this point forward will be minimal or ...
