Generically Typed EventArgs

So I was fooling around the other day in Visual Studio, and I was making events for some of my classes. Specifically, these events were generated when a specific property would change values. I had already implemented the INotifyChanged interface, but I also wanted strongly linked events per property, because we all know as programmers […]

Family Fun

Took a trip to Huber’s Farm in Indiana recently, and grabbed some wonderful pictures. Also, some pictures from around the house.

Microsoft Is Doing Everything Wrong

For those of you who don’t know, I run a site called Mendoa. It doesn’t get much traffic, but it is meant to be a forum where you can argue a topic with clearly delineated pro and con arguments. The fact that Microsoft is screwing up royally lately has been on my mind, and I’ve […]

A Few Pictures

I took a trip home recently, so I thought I’d share some of the better photos I was able to get while I was there. I’ve also been taking more photos around the house and in town here. You’ll also notice some pictures of my girlfriend’s guinea pigs. They were so cute I had to share them. […]

Bring the show back! Please!

Playing With Blocks

I recently read an article that suggests pointing new programmers to Python and avoiding object oriented programming for as long as possible. While I think I understand the idea of trying to get a newbie’s feet wet and not wanting to scare them off from the big bad beast that programming can be, I think […]
