  • Use the broadfork for loosening soil to prepare for planting or for adding soil amendments such as compost or mulches. It will open and loosen soil while minimizing damage to the living strata of flora and fauna that provide the nutrients for the garden bed. For more on living soil see Harvey Ussery's site. The broadfork is also a great tool to choose for harvesting potatoes, beets, carrots, etc.

  • A broadfork is for tilling and aerating garden beds by hand, an alternative to the noise, pollution, fossil fuel consumption and ground pressure of power equipment. A broadfork is like a pitchfork, but larger, heavier and with longer tines, and designed to use your body instead of your muscles. You stand on it and wiggle the handles front-and-back to work the tines into the ground. Then, pull back on the handles just a little to loosen and aerate at the tine tips. Your motion is a natural pulling and pushing, instead of bending and lifting.
  • Possibility?…Envirolet® by Sancor™ is the most advanced environmental & economical sanitation solution for your cottage, cabin, home, RV, pool cabana, farm, yurt, basement, work shop, commercial application & more. There is a system for any application.
  • Ever wonder how we build Visual Studio and the .NET Framework? I mean literally. You know, the build process that spits out a product at the other end? Well I sure did and it's not just hitting F5 people ;-).
  • VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit Windows platforms (95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL). It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video. It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters. VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images.

Talking about Peter Selinger: ccrypt

leave a comment »

 

Quote

Peter Selinger: ccrypt
ccrypt is a utility for encrypting and decrypting files and streams. It was designed as a replacement for the standard unix crypt utility, which is notorious for using a very weak encryption algorithm. ccrypt is based on the Rijndael cipher, which is the U.S. government’s chosen candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES, see http://www.nist.gov/aes). This cipher is believed to provide very strong security.

  • …To get started, create a new Windows Forms project called "Report Project Demo." We will be using simple classes to be used as the data source for the chart and report. Add two new classes, ReportData and SalespersonData. In the SalespersonData class add the following code
  • …To page through data in a control that implements the IPageableItemContainer interface, DataPager control can be used. GridView has its own paging and does not implement IPageableItemContainer interface. ListView is the only control that works with DataPager.
    –So let's begin extending the GridView with the IPageableItemContainer interface.
