Taking notes while tinkering with:

High quality video with a DSLR is nice, and I find that when on an outing or at an event, it’s easy to take clips here and there to capture and document the memory. I usually switch between video clips and photos, but afterwards I don’t really like sorting through all the photos that much because I snap too many.

Videos on the other hand, I find that, if I don’t delete it, then they can be combined together in chronological order and be good enough to share with friends and family.

To save time, I created a command line script which will grab all clips from a folder and combine them into one video …

Blog Theme Updated

Merge All PDFs In A Folder

#Tools   #PDFs   

I like to use Boogie Board Sync to take notes, then sync them to my Laptop using dropbox. Unfortunately, the Sync creates a one page PDF for each saved screen.

Step 1: Find The Time

My newborn son arrived 3 weeks ago, weighing in at a whopping 9.4 lbs. My poor wife battled out 30 hours of labor, and finally the doctors insisted that she have a C-section. Now we’re learning as we go and trying to keep our heads above water.

Surprisingly, I have been able to get coding sprints in and accomplish things here and there. Sleep has been scarce, however.

At this point, I have a strong desire to be both of two things:

  • A good father and husband
  • A hacker who can productively make cool things

Step 1 for me will be to find the time.
