Setting the Pace

Custom speeds for IVLE's Silverlight-based webcasts.

For one reason or another (read: I have no idea why, but...), the few webcasts I've watched recently seem to work better when viewed faster than real-time. I’d download the MP4 version, open it up in VLC, and use the playback speed controls to speed things up anywhere from 1.1 to, on one occasion, 1.3 times the normal rate.

Sorting Images with PowerShell

An incremental journey.

I've accumulated quite a number of wallpapers over the last few years; close to two thousand images totalling almost 3.5 GB and counting, in fact. They came from a whole hodgepodge of places online, in various sizes and aspect ratios, and I have them in my SkyOneDrive folder so they get synced across my desktop and laptop.

Version Control

Developing Office plug-ins for earlier versions than the one installed.

I spent last December working on the narration and caption features for PowerPointLabs without actually working on the plug-in itself; everything was done in a separate project. Eventually, it came time to merge everything in.
