Review: The Hangover

[ Spoiler free ] The Hangover isn’t the sort of movie I usually go for. Movies in this genre tend to be crude for the sake of crudeness. The Hangover isn’t like that. All of the characters are likable. There’s no maliciousness between them that wouldn’t be normal for any group of guys. And they […]

Review: The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

[Spoiler Free] There was nothing wrong with The Taking of Pelham 123. The acting in Pelham was more than adequate, as you would expect with high caliber actors Denzel and Travolta carrying the load. The story was okay; the direction was okay; the writing was okay. So as much as anything that’s what is wrong […]

RunPee Homepage

I have created m.RunPee.com for those who would like to access RunPee.com from their Blackberry, or practically any other mobile phone. m.RunPee.com is a simple HTML version of the website that will let you navigate to the movie you are seeing and view the PeeTimes. The good news is that most existing smart phones will […]

User registration all ready

I got User Registration all hooked up and running today. There’s some polish that needs to be done for sure but users can check for unique user names, input a password, provide their email address and make themselves a user account. This is also the first time I’ve used MD5 to protect the users password. […]

Cool, now I can email my friends

Long day today. Got two of the big remaining feaures done today. Email reminders and email friends. Reminders was the hardest because it requries quite a bit more PHP that I know but I got it sussed out and working. The easy part is submitting the data to MySQL Database – been here, done that. […]

deepLinking

This weekend was quite productive. First I nailed down the emailing from Flex functionality an Saturday. Then on Sunday I got the deepLinking enabled. I’ve worked with deepLinking before on XanaduWest.com years ago so the concept is familiar to me. Flex adds the HistoryManager class which is amazingly helpful. In this case I had to […]

Learning lots of new things with PHP

One of the important features I would like to implement on RunPee.com is to let a user schedule an email reminder so that they can be prompted to come back to the site and update it. For instance after they see a movie they might want to be prompted to come back to RunPee and […]

family-alpha

Today, 4th of July, is the day RunPee.com went into family-alpha – you know, that’s where only a handful of friends/family can see the prototype and start offering feedback and reporting bugs. Currently there are 27 items on my 2Do list for the app. If I can handle one item a day I’ll make my […]
