I have neTodo working again, with some updates (changelog). That's about all I have to say.

Welp. It's been over 10 years since I last posted here. 8 years since I last did any work on this site. Many things have happened.

First it was just being lazy and not having the drive to post anything while I was working on redoing the backend of the site. Then the work slowed down to a crawl and eventually to a stop. I don't know if there is a link between my lack of drive and the health issues that started to show up in 2015, but by the end of 2016 I was in the hospital fighting for my life. A few hiccups and then Covid-19 we finally reach today.

I am still Alive

The site is not dead and neither am I. The forced change of the backend host for this site has spurred me to try again to get going with this. To bring some order in the chaos where the mind dwells.

The new host has given me some issues, half of which are currently resolved. The main thing that is working right now is the coldfusion version of neThing (v0.8) has been brought back up to full working status so I can post this.

Working

  • Me
  • neThing (v0.8)
  • Sparce
  • neSpeeches

Not Working

  • neTodo
  • neFeedeater (probably gonna kill it)

For a list of project (incomplete, but I will update) you can go here: Projects

So here I go working again.

This post was incomplete at the time, decided to post anyway (2022-03-25)

The release of the Official Google Chromebooks is nearing. On June 15th both Acer and Samsung will begin taking orders.

So what's happened since I last did my review of the CR-48 and how might that show what's in store for these initial Chromebook consumer offerings.

What's Changed

Touchpad

Well for one, it doesn't suck anymore. The software has gotten alot better, in fact it was one of the first things they fixed. I still would rather they opted for a clickless pad, but at least I can do taps if I want to. All the issues of sensitivity diminishing at the edges of poor handling of right click gestures are gone. What's left is a pretty darn good touchpad that should only be better in the consumer version.

What Hasn't Changed

Keyboard & Battery Life

This should obviously be a no brainer, but one always hopes that there could be some magic voodoo in the software to eek out a few extra minutes or even hours in the battery life.

12. Extract uppercase words from a file, extract unique words using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.Threading; using System.IO; namespace lrn2CSharp12 { class Program { static void Main( string[ ] args ) { string file = ""; string line = ""; string[ ] words; List<string> upperWords = new List<string>( ); List<string> uniqueWords = new List<string>( ); Console.WriteLine( "Input name of a file to read and count words." ); Console.Write( ":" ); try { file = Console.ReadLine( ); FileStream fs = new FileStream( file, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read ); StreamReader sr = new StreamReader( fs ); while ( !sr.EndOfStream ) { line = sr.ReadLine( ); words = null; if ( line.Length != 0 ) words = line.Split( ' ' ); if ( words != null ) { foreach ( string w in words ) { if ( char.IsUpper( w[ 0 ] ) ) upperWords.Add( w ); if ( !uniqueWords.Contains( w ) ) uniqueWords.Add( w ); } } } sr.Close( ); fs.Close( ); } catch { Console.WriteLine( "WTF?!?" ); } Console.WriteLine( "Upper Words:" ); foreach ( string s in upperWords ) { Console.Write( s ); Console.WriteLine( ); } Console.WriteLine( ); Console.WriteLine( "Unique Words:" ); foreach ( string s in uniqueWords ) { Console.Write( s ); Console.WriteLine( ); } Console.WriteLine( ); Console.WriteLine( "Press esc to exit." ); while ( !keyPressHandler( Console.ReadKey( true ) ) ) { Thread.Sleep( 250 ); /* no op */ } } private static Boolean keyPressHandler( ConsoleKeyInfo input ) { if ( input.Key == ConsoleKey.Escape ) return true; return false; } } }

11. Input is HTML table, Remove all tags and put data in a comma/tab separated file.

Part of this was an exercise in looking up what others have already done.

using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using System.IO; using System.Data; using System.Text.RegularExpressions; using System.Threading; namespace lrn2CSharp11 { class Program { static void Main( string[ ] args ) { string file = ""; string html = ""; DataSet ds = null; StringBuilder csv = new StringBuilder( ); Console.WriteLine( "Input name of a file with an HTML table in the current directory to convert to csv." ); Console.Write( ":" ); try { file = Console.ReadLine( ); FileStream fs = new FileStream( file, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read ); StreamReader sr = new StreamReader( fs ); html = sr.ReadToEnd( ); sr.Close( ); StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter( fs.Name + ".csv" ); ds = ConvertHTMLTablesToDataSet( html ); if ( ds != null ) { foreach ( DataTable dtc in ds.Tables ) { int iColCount = dtc.Columns.Count; for ( int i = 0; i < iColCount; i++ ) { sw.Write( dtc.Columns[ i ] ); if ( i < iColCount - 1 ) { sw.Write( "," ); } } sw.WriteLine( ); foreach ( DataRow dr in dtc.Rows ) { for ( int i = 0; i < iColCount; i++ ) { if ( !Convert.IsDBNull( dr[ i ] ) ) { sw.Write( dr[ i ].ToString( ) ); } if ( i < iColCount - 1 ) { sw.Write( "," ); } } sw.WriteLine( ); } sw.WriteLine( ); } } sw.Close( ); fs.Close( ); } catch { Console.WriteLine( "WTF?!?" ); } Console.WriteLine( "Press esc to exit." ); while ( !keyPressHandler( Console.ReadKey( true ) ) ) { Thread.Sleep( 250 ); /* no op */ } } private static Boolean keyPressHandler( ConsoleKeyInfo input ) { if ( input.Key == ConsoleKey.Escape ) return true; return false; } private static DataSet ConvertHTMLTablesToDataSet( string HTML ) { DataTable dt; DataSet ds = new DataSet( ); dt = new DataTable( ); string TableExpression = "<table[^>]*>(.*?)</table>"; string HeaderExpression = "<th[^>]*>(.*?)</th>"; string RowExpression = "<tr[^>]*>(.*?)</tr>"; string ColumnExpression = "<td[^>]*>(.*?)</td>"; bool HeadersExist = false; int iCurrentColumn = 0; int iCurrentRow = 0; MatchCollection Tables = Regex.Matches( HTML, TableExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase ); foreach ( Match Table in Tables ) { iCurrentRow = 0; HeadersExist = false; dt = new DataTable( ); if ( Table.Value.Contains( "<th" ) ) { HeadersExist = true; MatchCollection Headers = Regex.Matches( Table.Value, HeaderExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase ); foreach ( Match Header in Headers ) { dt.Columns.Add( Header.Groups[ 1 ].ToString( ) ); } } else { int columns = Regex.Matches( Regex.Matches( Regex.Matches( Table.Value, TableExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase )[ 0 ].ToString( ), RowExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase )[ 0 ].ToString( ), ColumnExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase ).Count; for ( int iColumns = 1; iColumns <= columns; iColumns++ ) { dt.Columns.Add( "Column " + System.Convert.ToString( iColumns ) ); } } MatchCollection Rows = Regex.Matches( Table.Value, RowExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase ); foreach ( Match Row in Rows ) { if ( !( ( iCurrentRow == 0 ) & HeadersExist ) ) { DataRow dr = dt.NewRow( ); iCurrentColumn = 0; MatchCollection Columns = Regex.Matches( Row.Value, ColumnExpression, RegexOptions.Singleline | RegexOptions.Multiline | RegexOptions.IgnoreCase ); foreach ( Match Column in Columns ) { dr[ iCurrentColumn ] = Column.Groups[ 1 ].ToString( ); iCurrentColumn++; } dt.Rows.Add( dr ); } iCurrentRow++; } ds.Tables.Add( dt ); } return ds; } } }

The .NET version of neTodo has been released. It's a functioning Preview Release. There are still lots of things I need to do to get it where I want it. Go to the neTodo changelog to read more about this release.

This post is belated, since the Earthquake and resulting Tsunami happened last Friday. My thoughts and hopes are with the people of Japan as they continue to cope with the aftermath of the Tsunami and current nuclear crisis going on.

I have to however, say something about many of the twitter, facebook, and other comments I've been seeing out there. Such things like this being God's payback for Pearl Harbor. Japan getting what it deserves. Bullshit. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

Once again, and I can't believe I have to say this. God didn't send the Tsunami, didn't start the Earthquake, and certainly didn't punish Japan because of Pearl Harbor. Let it go freaks. God doesn't care about our petty little fights. God doesn't punish nations or people. God doesn't need to, we do it all ourselves, so let it go and stop being such assholes.

Please, if you haven't already, donate something to help the Japanese people.
