Question: starting P90X workout (and/or 30 day shred)

P90X Question by D.D. Well, I decided that I’ve sat on my butt too long and need to get healthier. I think it’s that I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks 😛 Anyways, I ordered P90X from beachbody.com yesterday. A friend is wanting someone to do it with him – I don’t think he finished the first week by himself. I know you’ve mentioned it a couple of times on here and was wondering what you thought of the

Roundup of ISAPI rewrite filters for IIS

Here is a roundup of ISAPI rewrite filters for IIS, they let the webserver take a human friendly request like http://www.jdhodges.com/photos/1002 and rewrite it to a url that a dynamic scripting engine (such as ASP) can understands like http://www.jdhodges.com/photos.asp?photoID=1002 This benefits users who now have a legible URL and especially search engines like Google which are much more likely to index a page which appears to be static than a dynamic looking URL string: Reasons your site may not be

Simplicity and Photography. It’s not about the gadgets.

Two links to Ken Rockwell’s site, both of these articles resonant with me. Regarding the first article, as a somewhat gadget obsessed dude that also like photography I can empathize. I know that some of my best photographs were with relatively ancient cameras; and some of my worst photos have been with the “latest and greatest”. The second article is similar to the first one,  except going into a bit more of what really makes for good photography. Article #1

Hawaii after a month

We’ve been in Hawaii just over a month. It’s been a wonderful time so far and here’s a short categorical summary of my thoughts so far: Weather Definitely one of the highlights. In Kona we had one day of rain, the rest was sunshine.  Temperatures were in the low to mid 80s during the day and mid 60s at night.

Popular Mechanics: V8 + Electric = muscle hybrid

I’ve always had a soft spot for Popular Mechanics, they are usually a good choice to read at the doctor’s office or at a newstand. They almost always have something interesting in each issue. Recently, Popular Mechanics did a really cool makeover of a 2009 Dodge Challenger. They took the Challenger, which is a modern V8 “muscle car” and added an electric drive system. The article starts here.  The electric additions start on page 5. My house uses solar energy,

SkyGrabber Review [updated with screenshots and download]

If you’ve read about the security vulnerability of US military drone planes, like the Predator,  you probably wanted to checkout the Russian  SkyGrabber software to see what all the fuss is about. Unfortunately, their site seems to be down due to all the traffic. Hopefully the military (or the company that builds the drones) will fix the vulnerability soon! UPDATE 2: download links for Skygrabber link #1, link #2 (mirror) UPDATE 1. Here is a screenshot of the Skygrabber program
