Sony Online Support – PCG-F560K May 30 2004

Sony Online Support – PCG-F560K

Onlines support page for my laptop since Google can’t find it.

How-to: Use the yellow TV-out composite cable for the Sony Vaio PCG-F560K – since I didn’t really find this out anywhere, here is how to actually use the TV-out cable: the trick is to set the resolution to 640×480. Then TV out works. It’s the dream. Heh. 🙂

Updated to WordPress 1.2 – Mingus May 28 2004

Just finished updating to WordPress 1.2 – Mingus this evening. Went smoothly. I created a new .css file for the site.

Time for bed. 🙂

Springfield map (small)

The BIG Map of Springfield is quite large. If you’re using a 56K dial-up modem, it may take more than a few minutes to load, but it’s worth the wait. The BIG Map was last updated on 12.08.03 and includes information from Season 15.

300 Images From 1800 Sites

I started gathering little, iconesque web images for myself so that I could compare, contrast, and study the techniques used by other graphic artists on the web. My initial pool of images looked so interesting that I decided to continue methodically hunting and capturing the icons for a public display piece.

FreeCache — Making Universal Access Faster

FreeCache is a system of

* cooperating caches to move
* large files of
* free content
* closer to users.

To see a live snapshot of the FreeCache system go to the Status page.

The basic architecture is Real Simple(tm). It works entirely within existing technologies (“vanilla” web browsers and servers, http and https on the wire, plus a small cgi).

To use FreeCache, just click on a link like this. As a user you DO NOT need to install new software.
beta test

FreeCache works by moving content “hot spots” on the web closer to users. This provides several advantages to various parties involved: Users get faster downloads, content providers pay less for Internet-bound traffic, and ISPs pay less for Internet-originating traffic.

An example:
Say an up-and-coming rock band, the RockLobsters, has a website that has a large file, say that is 5MB-1GB in size. If it gets popular, they will lose their guitars and homes to their ISP because their bandwidth bill will shoot up.

The Home Page of JGraph

What is JGraph?

JGraph is the most powerful, lightweight, feature-rich, and thoroughly documented open-source graph component available for Java. It is accompanied by JGraphpad, the first free diagram editor for Java that offers XML, Drag and Drop and much more!

With the JGraph zoomable component, you can display objects and relations (networks) in any Swing UI. JGraph can also be used on the server-side, for example to read a GXL graph, apply a custom layout algorithm, and return the result as a HTML image map.
