Rudi – Hello World

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

It’s not often I write much personal stuff here but this is a BIG one.

At 02:02 on 21st March our baby boy was born. He was 54cm in length and weighed 6lb 13oz.

Both Jo and Rudi are doing great!

Here’s a bit of video taken yesterday of him on his changing mat getting used to his surroundings and having a sneeze ;) .

You need Flash Player 9 to view this video.

I can’t put into words how proud I am of Jo. Thank You!

As always firstly thanks to all the people who made last months events possible. Thanks to the Thermo team for coming down, Iain Lobb and Richard Lord for their presentations! All videos are online here.

This month is about interacting with the real world, specifically using the Arduino board. First up, Matt Biddulph doing a session titled ‘Hardware Hacking for Software Scripters’, and up after him will be Alias Cummins, continuing the theme with ‘Hardware Hacking with Flash and Arduino’.

This months event is sponsored by Tinker.it!

Edit: Scrap this post.

Mr Peters just shown me that…

[as]SuperClass.prototype.isPrototypeOf( SubClass.prototype );[/as]

…does the same thing.

Bonus!

Adobe Flex 3 Language Reference

Friday, March 7th, 2008

I use the online language refence all the time and noticed last night after not being able to find something I expected to be there in Flex 3.0 that I was still looking at the Flex 2.0 docs. If you use the online language references, and your using Flex 3.0 don’t forget to use the new ones.
