Klok v2.2 (previously released) has been retracted due to errors in it that caused alarms to not repeat all the time even when set to do so.

You may download Klok 2.1 until the next version (2.4) is released. It is going to be re-written from the ground up.

The next version of Klok is now not going to be 2.4. Instead, I’m jumping to 3.0. This is attributed to the fact that this is a major release (once it’s released). It’s got a completely re-written back-end to it (you won’t see anything related to this). Performance is better, the file itself is smaller (Klok.exe). Also, there are going to be some new options. Currently, I’ve added an option for whether or not Klok is the topmost window. The ability to edit form/text colors is a possibility, but may not be added.

June 6, 2008 Update! Updated the links for Klok 2.1 due to a server change in January. Apparently no-one downloads it since the links have been broken for 5.5 months. Development probably won’t continue. If I get a spur of Windows Development energy, it may, but most of my development time is now spent on web projects and looking at Mac development.

Jan 30, 2007 Update! Well, if it wasn’t already obvious, Klok 3 still hasn’t been released. The beta was bad. Really bad. Almost as bad as 2.2 was! It’s not dead, I just haven’t had much time. Please come back later for more info.

Nov 28, 2006 Update! Klok 3.0 is now in Beta testing. I expect it to be released before Christmas.

I’ve had delays in my development schedule since I’ve got a lot going on right now. (You’d be surprised how little time a guy with no life has!) As such, Klok will be released as soon as I can, but I can’t give an exact date. Until then, enjoy Klok 2.1. 2.2 was nice, but just not as stable as 2.1 is.

Posting Test

Just testing out posting to my new blog system, WordPress 2.1.

However, expect more posts (if anyone still visits the site even).


IQ & Politics

Here’s an interesting site that gives the actual IQ overall per state for the 2004 election. It’s quite interesting to see why we are still stuck with Bush.


One Mad Robot

Today in robotics class, we had to make the robots do something useful.  It all started innocently with us making the robot move two blocks of wood and stacking them on top of each other.

But then boredom set in and the fun started.  We started by getting some masking tape and making eyes for our robot.  They were attached to the end of it by the gripper (the arm).  Then came a mustache, teeth, beard and finally a cigarette.

The pictures below definitely affirm that our robot was pissed!


A Poem for Techies

I was looking thru my email and found this. It was on Slashdot a long time ago and I just thought that I’d post it.
