Posted 06-22-2010 at 12:19 AM by Cristiano (Full Frontal Nerdity)

As this blog software does not deal well with HTML, I went with a full Wordpress blog instead.

Here is the entry. You can log in to comment with your forum ID/password:

Using jQuery to Call a Simple Web Service

Posted 06-21-2010 at 02:35 AM by Cristiano (Full Frontal Nerdity)

Over the past few months, I have become a huge fan of jQuery. It has completely transformed my development work. I thought I would share a simple example of how to call a very basic web service that spits back two JSON (Javascript Object Notation) encoded strings and displays them.

I am primarily an ASP.NET developer, but you can use any back end server technology. You just need to output the results as JSON.

My simple web service takes an ID number on the querystring...

Overload

Posted 05-06-2009 at 04:24 PM by Cristiano (Full Frontal Nerdity)

I have a problem. Lately, I find myself on total overload. There are so many things I want to be doing - I have a bunch of stuff I want to add to Snapzilla, I have a new project I want to work on, I'm working on a video game for the XBOX 360, and now Eboni has goaded me into doing some new stuff in Poser. Yet, I start a project and find myself totally blocked on most fronts. I accomplish a little bit and then stop. I feel like my attention span is nil - I jump from one thing to another. I hope I...

Great iPhone/iPod Touch Apps

Posted 12-02-2008 at 05:40 PM by Cristiano (Full Frontal Nerdity)

Well, I have now had my iPod Touch for a few weeks, and it has grown on me a bit. I still think it is way overpriced and I find some of its quirks frustrating, but some apps I have downloaded have gone a long way toward helping me enjoy it more.

A huge frustration for me is the lack of any kind of subscription service that supports the iPod. Being able to buy songs directly from iTunes onto the iPod is convenient, but expensive and not what I want. A lot of times i'm in the mood for...

World of Goo

Posted 11-06-2008 at 05:06 PM by Cristiano (Full Frontal Nerdity)

In the midst of all the multimillion dollar high profile video game releases right now, it is nice to find an unexpected masterpiece from a small, independent game producer. That game, World of Goo, is an incredible addictive puzzle game with an oddball sense of humor and compelling gameplay.

The basic concept is you use balls of goo to build a path to a faucet to suck them up into. The balls stick together and you can arrange them in a variety of ways. Physics also come into play...
