Yesterday I was playing with manipulating information pulled from stocks. I ended up pulling data from Yahoo Finance, because it is just so easy to do in PHP. I ran into a problem, how would I pull all the data I needed?
I found very little documentation online, it seems that pulling data from Yahoo Finance is more of a clever manipulation of Yahoo offering CSV downloads of financial data. Yahoo mentions on discussion boards that it does not support, or help, those who use Yahoo Finance like this. I don’t believe it is against any agreements. › Continue reading
Today Google officially announced the release of Chrome 4.0. The update features two major pieces of functionality, Extensions and Bookmark Syncing. If you already have Google Chrome, just click on the “tool” -> About Google Chrome, and click on “Update” in the lower right corner next to the OK window. Otherwise, download it from Google. › Continue reading
As seen at Gizmodo on the blog posting, Leaked Nexus One Documents: $530 Unlocked, $180 with T-Mobile — prices have been leaked for the Nexus One. Talk about a difference from earlier rumors of $99 for Google users. › Continue reading
Right up front, I’m getting one. Rumors say that it will be $99 for current “Google” users. I’m hoping that means at least one of the dozens of Google services that I’m currently signed up for. While I am getting one, I won’t be replacing my current iPhone 3GS with it, just testing it out. Only if I really love it will I consider leaving AT&T and my beloved iPhone. › Continue reading
Every day I’m on at least 20 calls, and I would have to estimate that recently it seems I am dropping 50% of those calls. Good old AT&T right?
Being the normal annoyed user, I blamed AT&T and decided they couldn’t help me out. I just kept dreaming of an iPhone on Verizon (I still do). › Continue reading
I’m not sure how many readers of this blog have actually used alternate DNS solutions, but those numbers will grow.
Think about it, why would you care when the Google Analytics code is loaded? All it does is capture data, as long as Google gets it — it may as well go out at midnight. The new code enables an “async” request in HTML5. › Continue reading
Just this past week I rebuilt my main work machine (with a fresh Windows 7 installation), and got the opportunity to re-install all of my software. Yes, it’s annoying reinstalling, but theres a great feeling knowing you have a clean install of the freshest releases.
The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.
The fix is easy.
For me all I had to do was download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) and install it.
