I finally found a blog that is like looking in a mirror…
in other words I see myself.

All her posts will have you doing many things….laughing hysterically,shaking your head in agreement, or just plain enjoying the simplicity of it.

The blogger said ” In Castaway, I believed in the pain in losing Wilson. It was much, much more than a soccer ball. He lost in order to gain something incredible. A pair of wings. I too have gained through loss and then rise like a phoenix from the ashes.”

The blog is no longer available.

 

OCD Tuesdays!


This is too funny.Checking your blog out.

The Resident Princess's Blog

I have OCD. I know ive had it for sometime now but it seems to get worse and worse.

Found out today that one of my colleagues was leaving early cause he had sore eyes. Everyone was feeling sorry for him and what do i go and say to him “did you touch the door handle?” I didn’t mean for it to sound rude. I’m just extremely paranoid. Hubby is leaving on a business trip for 3 weeks tomorrow and the last thing I want to pass on is sore eyes.

So now everyone is office thinks I’m nuts but I could care less. I’m waiting for the cleaning lady to swing by to wipe down my table with dettol and all the door handles in office. Think im going into panic mode cause my eyes are scratching and ive just discovered that my hand sanitzer bottle in nearly over!! Argh!!

The Wounded Healer


When you hear kids say, “talk to the hand”, there’s a reason for it. It’s an intuitive defense mechanism against the oncoming energies of emotion and mind. Quite clever really. The power of your own actions, attitudes, inner feelings, and ways is all you ever really have in this world.

Bitter Sweet Orange Marmalade Cupcakes


I love Orange Marmalade.

I had really wanted to try out these cakes,and been thinking of new recipes to try and saw a blog post that gave me the push. I am really happy with the result.

Preheat the oven to 170’C. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and blend in. Then mix in the flour and marmalade ensuring there are no lumps. If you…

What about the future of Flash ?


I was trying to play the latest episode of “Once Upon a Time” on ABC player and granted I have the latest browsers and updates it would not play.I found this interesting article on the future of Flash and how Google does not allow the plugs for ABC Player to operate.

Video Encoding & Streaming Technologies

Long time passed since my last post on this blog. I have been very busy in an important video streaming project but this is not the only reason for my absence. I have also wanted to wait and take all the necessary time to analyze, ponder and “digest” the infamous Flash affair.
I will not hide my bitterness about the fact, but I’m also more optimitic now, after I have seen the real consequences and have had the time to elaborate on the future scenario. I’ts not all a bed of roses but I’m somewhat optimistic.

First of all, fortunately, I’m not limited to Flash technology in my consultancies. I work with .net technologies for many years and I have designed and deployed successful streaming services in HLS with both Wowza Server and FMS 4.5

You also know that I’m an encoding expert with important success cases and a deep knowledge of commercial and open source encoders…
