The Sound of Silence

with 65 comments

Ahhh….I feel refreshed. I just returned from a vacation to San Antonio that I had promised my wife after many weeks of non stop work, including a few of those true all-nighters. Josh and I had been working quite hard on numerous projects for Macromedia over the past weeks that will be part of the next DRK.

I would humbly say that this is the best DRK I have seen to date; in no small part to the numerous people, besides me and Josh, involved in putting it together. It is full of amazing applications, components, and extensions. For a more comprehensive account of the content of the DRK, see my brother’s post at http://www.joshdura.com. And, on a last note, I would like to thank Macromedia for allowing us to be part of an amazing team of developers.

Macromedia MAX

I can’t wait!! When I heard that this was in Salt Lake City, I couldn’t believe it. It actually kind of ticked me off. I just sold my condo up there and moved down to Dallas 3 months ago! Well, my wife will now be fully supportive because most of her family is up there! In fact, there ‘may’ even be some snow…..anyone up for a skiing trip?

Will it never end?!

with 46 comments

Ok, i spent about 10-15 minutes tonight just deleting SPAM comments. It is really becoming a problem. They are beginning to look just like my email, running the gamut from herbal remedies to purn porn. Thank goodness that they cant post pictures in the comments, or I would be in really big trouble. WHY ME! Is anyone else noticing this becoming a major problem? Any tips? I know I could block IP’s, but more than likely, these spammers are using proxies. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
