Why not?

Type these words into the search bar on your iTunes MP3 player of choice (which should be Media Monkey) and list the first song that appears in the results.

NotesMy default sort is by title, so this isn't nearly as random as it could have been. (Or perhaps more so: say if default sort was 'genre' ... that could skew the results quite a bit. I also specified 'title' as the search field, least we get results by The Happy Schnaps Combo and other other artist word matches. I've also noted the number of tracks returned by each term.

The first five (5) people to respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those seven who respond first.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.

What I create will be just for you.

It'll be done this year.

You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be fic, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!

I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

I (might) need a snail-mail address, which is why ALL comments are screened.

I'll often take these and not post the results, but some of these were very funny for personal reasons, particularly [ profile] rileybear67 and her interaction with [ profile] merseine0613. Obviously I need to keep you two out of the kitchen for a while.

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favourite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

It often happens, though, that this value is reference on many different forms, so that each reference has to be accompanied by the data validation code. If a programmer gets the validation code wrong, or simply ignores or forgets the validation altogether, you risk accepting invalid data into your database. If the validation rules change, you have to visit each form that contains a reference to the data item and change the validation code.

Now contrast this scenario with validation within a property procedure. The form can attempt to assign a nonvalidated value to the property, and the property procedure will validate the data and accept or reject it. The validation for this data item is thereby centralized. Any form can use the property, and you can be certain that only validated data is accepted into the database.

Wow. Moving stuff, isn't it? How about that character development in just two-half paragraphs? Hasn't the plot gripped you yet and moved you to the edge of your seat?

So there was this meme that I participated in the other day. [ profile] merseine0613 and [ profile] cmerun12 (possibly others) posted their answers I though that was a good idea.

What's behind Cut Number Three? )

Blame a variety of friends for this ... that and I'm avoiding work right now, although I really should be figuring out a better data storage option for a current application. I'm not taking any of these questions seriously, by the way ...


Seriously... It's all about ME.

Okay, this one is different - this is funny. YOU fill in the blanks about ME. Be honest.
They're really SCARY to get back. It only takes a few minutes, so just do it!
Feel free to copy/paste into your own LJ and see what people know about you!

That iTunes Meme ... even thought I don' t have iTunes, I applied the meme to my MP3 player (MediaMonkey) just to be curious.

Or at least pictures returned using my listed interests in LiveJournal. Not all of them are actually of the interest I had in mind, but it still makes a unique collage.

Ok, I'll have to admit that I have no idea how this thing works. So far I've won two fights and probably earned something for [ profile] rileybear67.

I blame [ profile] chorus ...

I often try these memes, but don't post my results. After seeing some of what came up, I had to post this one just to share a laugh with some people!

Go to Wikipedia ( Type in your birth date (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal.


1929 - Vatican City becomes a sovereign state.
1965 - The US Supreme Court decides Griswold v. Connecticut effectively legalizing the use of contraception by married couples.
1993 - Prince changes his name to a symbol and comes to be referred to as "The Artist formerly known as Prince".


1946 - Jenny Jones, Palestinian-born comedienne and talk show host
1958 - Prince, American musician (Not important, really, but it amused me that I share a birthday with him.)


1329 - Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland (b. 1274)

Deaths were actually a bit harder to chose from and were really a bit more interesting. Other "good" choices were Chief Seattle and Alan Turing, but Robert the Bruce seemed the most appropriate.
