Too Good – Simulated MJPEG Video Streaming

by on Mar.21, 2010, under Technology

This was just too good.  I was playing with video codes for real-time streaming of data off my webcam-crane-contraption and decided to try MJPEG.  I wasn’t a fan of rewriting code to put it in the proper format, so for now I thought I’d just set a JPEG to refresh frequently.

So I did.

And it worked, moderately well:

The best part though: It also works on my iPod! Plain ‘ol Safari and JavaScript.  I thought that was pretty cool.  I guess Google, in building Google Chrome to handle the next generation of applications, wasn’t too far off the path.

Ten Points Random

by on Feb.05, 2009, under General

You know, I did a Google search for “Jon’s Ramblings”, what I’ve been calling my blog up ’till now, and was utterly surprised at how may other doofuses like me call their own blogs by the same name.

Not acceptable.

Now, let’s rewind a few days.

I was sitting on my bed, reading into the late hours of the night (or early hours of the morning, as the case my be).  On the door to a self-like box I have on my wall, I have a picture of an LDS Temple (a concept render of the Draper Utah temple, in fact, which will open later this year).

As I finished my reading for the night and just as I closed my book, the picture, printed on glossy card stock and held in place with sticky-tack, happened to, at that very moment, relinquish its hold on the the surface, swing freely as it pivoted on upper-left corner, and fall on the ground.  To which I thought: +10 Points: Random.

And – seeing as how I needed a new name for my blog, decided to try and see but not if that would stick.

Me too – get a blog, and a site

I do web development for a living.  And I don’t have a website.

It’s time I get one.

Here it is.
