The Project: Java discovery of the Day

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

Important Java tip: In a try-catch-finally block, finally is always called. Do not assume that you are in finally because your try threw an exception. Cleaning up resources that you built in try during finally will really make your program fail.

The Project, Weekend Wrap Up

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

Now, I’m honestly trying to not work on the project specifics except during the work week of Monday – Friday. Granted, like everyone else; I find a project I like; I dive in with both feet. Ironically, the average diver would probably hazard trying to go in hands first. But, then again; I’m not a [...]

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

Erin and I have been discussing the episode and you can expect our write ups before the holiday. But before we put them up I need to put up what seems like a gratuitous tweet. Nick Lachey: ‏(@NickLachey) {(post)} I want to thank all 10 groups for making this season of #singoff the most fun yet!! [...]

The Armchair Judge: The Singoff – S4 Pre-Finale Musings

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

A few thoughts going into Monday’s Sing-Off Season 4 Finale (this is being written before Monday’s show and does not take into account any of Monday’s performances). Each of the three groups left has a different strength. Vocal Rush has my heart; Ten has my head; Home Free has my ear. Vocal Rush is full of youthful [...]

We’re coming to the end of the Armchair Director (and Judge’s) posts on the Sing Off for 2013. The ratings seem to indicate that this will definitely be back for next season. Hopefully, they can find a way to put it on the schedule more than once in a year. granted, I’m a very greedy [...]

A Political Question: Show me the money

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

I typically keep my posts about politics and my political beliefs to my personal Facebook. However, I will admit that I have been on a constant  push to put all my content creation onto this blog. I have described it as “All things ‘Lord Andrei’.” As a result, I hope I don’t frighten off too [...]

The Project: Houston We Have Live Data

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

This is going to be short and sweet. But after a few days of being utterly distracted with other things on the blog and endless phone calls today; I got the live data from the server to show up in the app. It formats correctly and even sorts on the fly. Now we’re cooking!

The Armchair Judge: The Sing-off S4, Ep 6

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

Episode 6 - “Judges’ Choice” The groups still in the game – Home Free, Ten, Vocal Rush, and The Filharmonic. Home Free – five men in their twenties, super-tight harmonies, clear tenor lead with the occasional toss to the uber-bass. Lots of performing experience at festivals. They consider themselves “country a cappella” but they are proving [...]

The Armchair Judge: The Sing-off S4, Ep 5 – Pt 2

Originally published at Lord Andrei's Blog. Please leave any comments there.

My quick rundown on the three Ultimate Sing-Off match-ups from Episode 5 AcoUstKats vs VoicePlay – “Eye Of The Tiger” Well, it was very entertaining. They were totally transparent about this being pre-staged this time. The show seemed to be trying to keep that secret up to this point. Acoustikats lead lost control of the [...]
