Project Update: JSON redux and Mapping

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

Well, the code moves on. Today I did pretty much ZERO UX. Today it was all about consuming the data, getting it into the data structures and then being able to start consuming where the user is. This comprised about 3 hours of work this evening. The JSON now lives on an internal server.  My [...]

The Armchair Director — The Sing Off S4, Ep. 4

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

Let me start this review by saying that my pre-show guesses were off, but I am happy for why. We’ll come back to my pre-show calls later. I should note: I do like all four of this episode’s group. I will sadly make this comment many times through this analysis. Episode 4: My Generation. Which [...]

The Armchair Director: The Sing Off, S4 Ep4 Pre-Show

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

Well, kids… Episode 4 is just minutes away. So here comes the whirlwind pre-analysis of the song names and groups but without listening. Tonight’s episode is “My Generation” – This theme could mean any number of things, but with the lineup being a Country, High School, Techno, and All-Female… This could go in a lot [...]

Project Update: JSON and other fun with data models.

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

Fear not friends, there will be a SingOff post or two today. Today I’ve been working on the back end of my software. UI is one thing, but you can only get so far with ‘lorem ipsum‘ data. Well, okay… in my case some fake data that sort of fits the project. So today, I [...]

Whoa, I know Kung Fu! Or, um… Layout Fu

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

Well, here’s the accomplishment of the evening. Been working on the code project and managed to completely grok Objective-C auto layout including the Visual Format Language. And I’ve managed to do this with animations. It was very much a bumpy road; but the end effect is Soooooooooooo much better than the first draft of the [...]

Yeah, but what about “The Project”

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

I have been known for having a penchant for finding a pet project and then blithely moving onto something else. It could be surmised by my silence on the project followed by a huge shift into analysing “The Sing Off” that once again I’ve been side tracked by something new and shiny. I am however [...]

The Armchair Director — The Sing Off S4, Ep. 3

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

First off, I’m thrilled for a shorter episode. The reviews on a long episode are fairly well, long. Also, finally caught up after the absolute drugging I had on Thursday. My next medical drugging is in January, so we should be good for the rest of this short season. Starting this weekend, I’ll be posting [...]

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

Coming back strong after some nice holiday ratings; it seems The Sing Off is off and rolling. This season we are watching 10 respectable groups try to avoid elimination It’s a very wide selection of groups: Country, Classic, DooWop, All Female, BoyBand, Gospel, Collegiate, Latin, etc. I on the other hand am coming down from [...]

I just met a drug named Halcion

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

I do not consider myself one to experiment with narcotics. But I do consider myself open-minded, observant, and philosophical about experiences. Today I got to discover sedation dentistry and the kind and loving assistance of Triazolam. I went from normal to drunken stumbling fool in a period of an hour. The drug took about 30 [...]
