Buehrle + White Sox Fielding = Perfect

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009


Mark Buehrle
has never been one of my favorite players, but today
he was picture perfect. I never thought that it would ever happen, but here it is:

Chicago White Sox 5, Tampa Bay Rays 0 Game Wrap

Now if he can stop talking about his next contract, then everything will be golden. Speaking of golden, 4th outfielder
Dewayne Wise
’s fantastic catch in the 9th Inning was what made
Buehrle’s perfect game possible. Wise has taken a lot of flak from
fans who have been seemingly oblivious of the fact that Wise is on the
team for his glove, not his bat.

Hopefully, this is a portent for things to come later this season. Can a
second World Series at the Cell aka U.S. Cellular Field aka Comiskey
Park II be in the offing?

Spirit Camp Blog

Monday, July 20th, 2009

If you are really interested in the world of indie films, then one website that you should find interesting and informative is the Spirit Camp Blog written by director Kerry Beyer of the forthcoming movie Spirit Camp .

Beyer’s blog is chock full of interesting stuff concerning the making and distribution of movies nowadays. One the most important points that he has made lately concerns a factor in film making that most would be filmmakers do not think about until after their movie has already been made.

Quoth Beyer:

Magazines, indie film associations, product manufacturers, film festivals, consultant gurus and producer’s reps all help to promote what I call the “myth of filmmaking.” Just pick up a camera and follow your passion – make your movie, your way, right now, and finance it on your credit card if you have to. The digital revolution is here, and it’s more like an annihilation.

The democratization of film through digital media has made it so everyone can make a film. But it doesn’t mean that everyone should. And as a result there is a glut of product out there dragging prices down faster than the titanic.

This is a great blog and as such is well worth your time.

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

People have often wondered just what happened to veteran meteorologist Cheryl Lemke aka the “temperachores” girl after she accepted a buyout offer from the lamers who run the Weather Channel…right into the ground.

Well, wonder no more. Lemke is searching for employment as a TV weathergal as shown by this posted resume and this official website.

Given her vast experience combined with her polished on-air presentation, it would be a shame if she was unable to land a decent job in this economy.

SoftInform Technologies Press Release

Monday, July 6th, 2009

SoftInform Technologies has released iNetFormFiller 3.6.20, a tool for form-filling on the internet. iNetFormFiller is the only package software that can batch-submit data from your CSV files and SQL databases to web forms in one click. If that?s what you need, look no further ? iNetFormFiller is the only way to go!
Instead of wasting on manual copy-and-paste, access your records in a CSV file or a SQL database, match them with your profile, select the form, and click the ?Batch-submit? button ? iNetFormFiller will do the rest for you. That is, it will submit the entire selection of records to the forms you?ve specified.
Watch how iNetFormFiller batch-submits 6 records with fictional data to a sample web form. Video: http://www.inetformfiller.com/movies/inetformfillerbatchmode.html
The new version improves recognition of controls on the actual web form. While older versions recognized fields and other data input controls by label, the new version reverses the priority order and identifies fields by their unique IDs included in the HTML source code. This helps avoid errors on large forms with a lot of similar-name controls on them.
In addition to authors posting their texts on different sites, blogs and forums, iNetFormFiller is useful for data entry and data validation managers, especially those involved in:
? banking
? real estate
? PR and HR
? dating business
? healthcare
? transportation
? advertising.
The batch mode is available in two iNetFormFiller editions:
1) iNetFormFiller Professional. The Professional edition is designed for individual power users and can access CSV text for data and batch-submit the records to one web forms in a session.
2) iNetFormFiller Enterprise. In addition to CSV files, the Enterprise edition can access records in SQL databases and submit them to one or MORE web forms in the same session. Moreover, you can access other data sources by tuning the parser via the SDK only available in the Enterprise edition.
With iNetFormFiller, you can:
? create multiple profiles working on different forms, even those you?ve never visited before
? synchronize field values in different profiles
? recognize relevant forms on web pages (when there are more than one form on the page)
? record and reproduce web link clicks
? bind corresponding fields with values in your datasource
? combine values from your datasource in fields of the actual form.
Performance of iNetFormFiller largely depends on complexity and optimization of web forms, but it can be roughly estimated as 20?000 ? 100?000 records submitted a day.
With iNetFormFiller, don?t waste on copy-and-paste!
