Whoa, yes its a post

I have started CPIT, all is going well (I’m gonna actually apply myself this year, sorry if that sounded snobby but I havent really worked that hard at school.) I can not wait untill the second semester untill i start all my awsome programming papers (jade, C and Java)

I am quite buzy with varous projects of mine, such as

  • learning Unix shell scripting – I want to be the uber unix haX0r
  • aggTodo – yes i am still working on it
  • genral programming on things
  • creating a little SQL server database for a project of mine, 2-3 people know what it is, but I dont want to tell to many people yet, just in case i cant figure out somthing out, I dont want to get to many people excited about somthing yet – I will tell you this though – I am reading scientific papers
  • playing around with DotNetNuke and community server – umm just because I can
  • reading textbooks about mechtronics – trying to get a headstart on the AUK uni mechtronics degree of 2012ish
  • CPIT stuff – well duh

CPIT is going great for me

I am thinking about starting a podcast / vid cast – oh goody 30mins of me talking!!!!!!!!!!!! (and music etc etc etc, coding and stuff)

Some thoughts


Well, yes – it’s that time of the week for another instalment of JMB, time to keep you up to date on either: anything that’s on my mind, anything that is on someone else’s mind or just nothing in particular. What’s that you say? Shut up and get on with it? Alright then I will

My mp3 player is slowly becoming something of a essential everyday accessory for me, I take it everywhere, it is my little buddy (that sounded bad / noobish didn’t it?), so it was only a matter of time that I got into podcasting (for those who don’t know what podcasting is, think of it as a kind of audio blog), and it all happened though a Google ad, I came to the ad via visiting one of the blogs I visit on a regular basis, saw the ad (the ad was for urban coffee, a podcast that I now like) clicked it and BOOM!!!, I was hooked on it. It’s a good podcast I highly recommend it (you can find it @

I will post a bit more tomorrow

Hey guys, I noticed through all the blogs I read that there was a lot of new years resolution type blog entry so here’s mine (a little late though)

1. Complete all school work – I’m quite slack when it comes to schoolwork, so that is my main priority, I need to get the qualifications so I can do all the cool stuff I want todo

2. As above

3. Play around with NXT robotics – self explanatory

4. Write all my awesome ideas in a secure format until I have time to work on them – believe it or not I do have pretty good ideas sometimes

5. do more work for science alive – josh working = stuff todo, money, experience, enjoyment, less chores, more time for robotics, chance to speak to someone (offline) who knows more than me about robotics (you guys know who you are)

6. Attend Microsoft TechEd (hopfully, if I can get money/sponsored) – I can get noticed at Microsoft and can gain info, etc

7. Shove my robocup stuff into some sort of presentation – I have a feeling that I could be involved in the organizational side of that this year, now that could be fun (without sarcasm)

8. As 1 and 2

9. Get an xbox360

10. become a active member of the NZ .NET user group

alright then

in a rare first i am going to publish 2 blogs in a short time frame, whoa

i was sitting in bed last night and was pondering things, but i had my music player on, as I have not really told you guys what I listen to so here it is

Rock (Queen, Guns and Roses, Foo Fighers, Greenday, Oasis, U2, etc)
EDM (electronic dance music, most genres Trance, Breakbeat, Happy Hardcore, Dance, little little bit of dub)
Orpra (every now and then i listen to a little bit – but it is quite rearly that i do)

and I listen to some other stuff aswell but i cannot remeber it

sorry about the length between blogs, i will try and post a blog about once every week

well its about time for the Joshua Harris Clap Clap Award (aka JHCCA), this is somthing that is stupid and/or intelligent

so let the show commence *insert show type music here*

the JHCCA goes to george w bush, for, in one word: iraq

thats the end of the JHCCA section of the night now on to other things

I got board the other night and started to program a blog system, I figured I would need to any ways eventaly when i start to host my own website, its all in, i figured i would add rss to it (for planet NZtech and anyone else who has added my blog to a rss viewer), but i couldnt find anything simple to us to convert my blog to an rss feed, so i decided to create my own syndication format, i was gonnna call it rrss (Realy Realy simple syndication), it will be 100% (hopefully) compatible with rss, but then i found a rss .NET component that i could use, i dont know weather i can really be bothered with it to be honest in the first verson, i want the code to be as clean as possible (wonder how long that will last!!!), stay tuned for the next installment in the sarga.

i was talking to ben nolan the other day (those people that are reading this and are wondering who he is: he is one of the guys who make: zoomin) and he was telling me that i should learn Ruby on Rails, so i am,

any ways, thats about it for this editon of JMB, stay tuned for next weeks thrilling installment, where DR Debuger faces his greatest nightmare, bugs in the world!!!)

well xmas has been and gone, i got an mp3 player (i am currently listining to it), some clothes, money, a cd and some other stuff

I had a compulsary staff meeting at science alive the other day, i got there and there were some people about mmy age just lingering about the place then when the interactive area supervisor got us into some form of ornganisation she told us that we would be playing ball tag and that we would be finishing at 8pm (this was at 5pm) I was like “oh god make it stop” (if you have meet me you would probably laugh!!!), but that only lasted for a few miniutes (during which I did my best to enjoy myself) after that we we told that we were going to lazer strike and i was begining to enjoy myself, i did ok, my team won by about 30 points, I got told that i was rather good at it, i replyed with the fact that i play 2-10 hours of FPSes a day, and she said “oh”, and then we went back to science alive, waited for pizza to turn up, it didnt so we went to burger king and got whatever we wanted (with a $10 cap, but that wasent really an issue), so we ate that, said our goodbyes and i went to catch the bus home but i couldnt find any bus money, so i started to walk home, and then about two minutes into that i desided to look in my jacket pocket, the money was in there!!!

as for AggTodo, I am having a 2 week break, some of the UI code was driving me bonkers, the IDE wasnt helping much, so at the mo i am writing some tools for the xlan

ok then i think ill go now

web site of the mo:
phrase of the mo: drive by upload


today im gonna release the name of my commecial program, moan about supermarkets and a few other things

i will release the name of my commecial program towards the end

anyway onto the supermarket moaning
i resently have been in two supermarkets, and both of them have been horible. the first one was just horrible, in a city there should be no supermarket smaller than the lobby of your local mall(and the mall is really tiny) also there were only two aisles operational, there were extra staff around doing nothing, in one of the aisles the checkout operator (aka checkout chick) was doing the supermarkets accounts, i mean WTF?

supermarket 2 was not to bad in terms of the size but there was NO actual logical flow to the design of the interior, that means shopping trollys in every directon, an injury is bound to ouccur that is not great for any supermarket but even worse for that one because its main clients are all above 60 years old

if you dont know it now the name of my comercial program is called: AggTodo, i will explain more about it when it is coming to market

ok then i am going now, cya

josh out (FINALY!!! lol)
