Trump campaign dead on the runway….

July 20, 2016 Chris Welke 0

Despite what you may have heard, now is a pretty good time to be Hillary Clinton. Yesterday, we heard hordes of retarded people in Cleveland chant “lock her up” and making jokes and vague promises to actually put her in jail. Likely very few of the chanters have ever had their freedom taken away, if they had, they would understand that jail and prison is NOT Funny and Not a joke, but this is Trump supporters, whom veteran [clicky clicky!…]

Musescore arrangements on YouTube? Ok I’ll bite ….

When I first posted my initial “transcription-arrangement” (The famous Soprano Solo from 1991 by the inimitable Larry Shane posted for bugle in G and trumpet in Bb- though imitate they did…anyone with an earthworm shooter *ahem*) There was an option to “create a YouTube video” and post it there. The procedure was buggy and did not work (at least on my end) NOW Musescore added a link that claims to generate a YT vid, simply by allowing the [clicky clicky!…]

Let’s play…I mean…create a prototype ’13’ deck aka Korean Poker!

December 28, 2015 Chris Welke 0

If you are like me you played this addictive game at lunch, on the bus, during class…whatever you played it constantly because it’s seriously fun and a great way to pass the time. At Capo Valley, we loved this game because it was winnable even if you were dealt a shitty hand, the game encouraged a great deal of shit-talking and merriment. We’d also enhanced it with “insult rules” such as, while dealing, you throw a few of [clicky clicky!…]

From static frames to animation – JavaScript, Java & Processing; coding Art ….

August 31, 2015 Chris Welke 0

As part of my research, I endeavored to build a frame and tile it – evenly…as you would a column in a upscale restaurant, or as Billy-Buster tiled his lesser-known below-ground pool in the hilltop paradise above San Simeon. Drawing squares, keeping track of their quantity, position and spacing proved unweildy. So back to the drawing board I turned. The first task was to completely fill a window with squares, evenly spaced, uniformed – no holes. My first [clicky clicky!…]

The Binary Power Series and Java 1.8 ….

May 15, 2015 Chris Welke 0

Series follow a specific pattern and obey explicit, ineffable rules, like prime numbers…. 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23…. Or a times-table such as 9…. 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99. You get the idea, right? (I hope so or you’ll find this post incredibly boring). Computers store information in bits. A bit is one memory cell that is known by the CPU to be TRUE or FALSE, one or zero. [clicky clicky!…]

This quiet, sleepy little section of the Central Coast lives in a tenuous balance between the upper-middle class families who own property and the majority: the long-term and transient college students that are a nuisance and a necessity. Many national news stories originate or happen here. Like all good PR Firms, City Government and the prestigious Cuesta College in association with Cal Poly (whose administrative talent, cash and credit can compartmentalize conflicts, bury secrets deep and naturally maintain [clicky clicky!…]

Tapper had a few technical difficulties due to a froggy voice and the “ghost in the machine” kept deleting wraps and tracks. Hence the ‘cast is improvised; all the mistakes are left in (‘ummmm’ uhhh…’nerrrr…..) there are a few moments of dead air and the Tap goes OT during a legal discussion – threatening a local band that consistently steals his arrangements.
