3D Modeling by Google (sketchUp)

There's a new Google tool out that allows you to make 3d models and you can even save them to Google Earth. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet, even though it's downloaded, but it seems somewhat interesting. You can download it (free) from here (Google SketchUp)

And of course, my daily quote:

Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.

More Da Vinci

There was an article on the news today that I found very interesting!

the judge who presided over the recent Da Vinci Code plagiarism case used steganography to embed his own code in the judgment using italic text in random places throughout the text

I've been following it since morning, seems this is the string that is encrypted: smithycodeJaeiextostgpsacgreamqwfkadpmqzv - it seems smithycode is the start, so perhaps the actual cipher starts after the words. What does it say? We dont know yet! The Da Vinci Code books talk about encryption, in particular the ATBASH cipher. I will update when I figure out what it is.

Read it from Slashdot here

My random quote of the day:

My Karma ran over your dogma.

Candy Cane

This one candy cane
Red swirls around
Is not the same
As it once did sound

It's crooked and breaks
Fragmented in many places
And the smile it creates
Has left my many faces

Broken and lonely
This candy cane sits
Sadness for me only
His heart taking the hits

This emptyness inside
It just wont go away
It just seems to hide
Always wanting to stay

This one candy cane
Red swirls around
It seems just the same
As it forever will sound

VB.NET/ASP.NET XML String to Dataset

Ok, I had to post this! This is how you can take an XML string and create a dataset from it. Couldn't find anything on Google so I hope this helps everyone!

strXML = "<your><xml><string>"

Dim XMLreader As StringReader = New System.IO.StringReader(strXML)

' Create the dataset
Dim newDS As DataSet = New DataSet

Monday Monday La La

I really wanted to post about something today, however there's not much to post! I just recently read an article on how to get the External IP Address of your machine using .NET / VB.NET and C#... Which I may be using in a personal project sometime soon (it gave me ideas! ~ Strange I know). It's from the website: Chris Bellini. That will take you straight to the blog/code.

Ontop of that I don't have any new poems to write or share today. However I would like to say that as far as my certification path goes I have completed half of the first of eight books! Not bad for less than 2 days worth of studying. I was also reminded of a project that I have yet to start. Seems I get started on a project and scrap it for the next bigger, better project ~ *sigh* one day I'll completely complete a project.

Update: I have just wondered why, on websites that require you to login, they ALWAYS ask if you "Remember Me?" And what's worse is that there is never a textbox for me to write "No, I don't Remember You!" Instead they place a checkbox... *pun*

Another Poem

Poem 1:
Quiet now my one, the time has come for me to go.
This life of mine has lost its glow.
I loved you with all my heart and held you with all my soul.
I don't know how to let you go, I simply know I have to go.
I'm walking now alone this time but there is no life without your shine.
In God's eyes he knows you're mine.
With your sweet eyes and gentle mind.
Take this drop of blood of mine.
Take it with you for all of time.

Poem 2:
This love is pure
Of this im sure
My heart makes waves
Flowing through this maze
An angel in the distance
Has my eyes glazed
You are beautiful its true
Your face lights up this place
I'm lost in my thoughts of you
And i dont know what to do

So i'll think of something
When that sometime comes
When im alone out there
Beating my heart somewhere
When fate brought me to you
It knew just what i'd do
To turn this world around
And once and for all show
That in the end im still there

Dont know 'bout intelligent design
But its made my heart intelligently resign
I saw you somewhere in my dream
A place with too many faces
I reached out to you
But you walked right by
I knew I'd never find you
So I bled myself dry
Calmly melting into the sky
Like the candle in your room

My heart just wanted to say
We'll meet again soon
Perhaps not in this life
But on the ride back home

Winning Eleven Nine

Ok, I cant help it but post this. The game Winning Eleven Nine is really fun to play. Recently I've been playing this a lot with my step-bro and it's so fun! I certainly recommend it to anyone who enjoys playing soccer or just a good two player game.

In other news, I feel much better this week! Last week I was feeling like crap. I was very sick and it was just a lame week, matter of fact all last month kinda sucked. Anyways, I've started up my "nothing-better-to-do" website also... for those who don't know, its called EmoPorn. EmoPorn - thats just a funny word, think about it... emo people in pr0n... hah! Anyways its a good design and I don't want to waste it. I'll likely have it up soon and just add gradually to it. I'll post a link when it's ready.

Getting Older, The Clock Ticks

Here's a poem I wrote tonight, reflection on myself I guess.

Its crazy how life can just change
Throwing these twists and turns at our age
Wondering what's in store for us tomorrow
Leaving behind our illness and sorrow

Taking the happiness that we now find
Never chancing our life to rewind
Blazing through all of our years
Going all the way through the 6th gears

Never stopping for nothing
Cant turn back the clock
The speedometer hits two hundred
And we have no breaks to stop
Hoping that our dreams and wishes
Will find us before the last beat of our clock

Living life to the fullest
Never regret what we passed in our past
Making each and every second last
Dont drown in the tears of yesterday
Take what you have here today
And make it the best that you can
Cause one day Grim will come knockin
And 30 ain't so far away
