The most usfull day of work in…. alog time.

Well. I have been learning to do servercontrols at work. It is a .net thing. I love them.

Today there was almost no one else in the office. I really got some good stuff done. I have made a mose over image control and now am I am making a pop in contol.
Sure there is lots of them out there. But they are all in js. And there is some problems to walking the DOM and setting it up that way.

The way I am doing it is by building the Iframe and placing it on the page using a controol. I have a div around that, that is as wide as the page and I am going to put one more div right around the iframe for aborder and x close control. While you are in the iframe you can do whatever processing you need and then set a funcion on close so that you can update the calling page as needed.
And by putting one little custome tag on the page.
I like making my own tags.

And I thought user controls were cool. Ha.

I have even leared how to cast controls.

All that and Sun for 2 days in a row.

Hard time to Blog.

It has been hard finding time for this.
I do like doing it. But o my god. Where has my time gone? Anyone? Anyone?
So a quick update.
~Z is doing well. She had her 2 year check up and the Docs are amazed at how well she is doing. They said that is many ways she is advanced as a 3 year old. She knows all her colors and can count to 10 by herself and 20 with help. Need to start working on her letters.
We are going to take her up to Canada on Easter Sunday to see her cousin and Aunt (~L sister) and uncle. It will be fun. Good for us all.
The UU is going will. I help out last Saturday after noon on the chapel. Ran my head into an I-beam. But I am ok. Found out they are going to but a preschool in there once it is done. ~L and I like that idea for ~Z.
I rebuilt my computer. Needed to. Had too much junk on it. More so now that it is ~Z and I only computer. We are going to get a new one at some point. Was going to get one next paycheck but now we are going to get a bed frame for ~Z. So who knows when? There are lots of thing on our list. Seems to be getting more and more. O well.
But on the good computer side. My .Net skills are really taking off. I am now building server controls. User controls were fun. But server controls kick but! I need to finish off the Seattle and Salt Lake City sites in the next couple days though. So I might take a brake from the controls thing for a day or two. The sites are looking good. I just need to finish them up and get them up for review.
On a down side. Have had headache for the last 7 days. Comes and goes how bad it is. But sometimes it just nocks me out.
Well that is it for now.

Vacations… and 2.

Ok I know I have been away for a while for a long time but I have been on vacation. At the start of it on the 4th ~Z turned two. She picks up every word that that anyone says. So We have to watch what we are saying.

Well anyway like I said we were on vacation. We went to San Diego to see my brother ~S and Mom and Dad. We got left late Sunday. ~Z took the plain ride in stride. Did not think anything about flying above the earth. And she was good.

Dad and ~S meet us at the airport Monday morning, got to the resort (saw a car speed up around us, slow down and bump a van. Before they both pulled over. Odd.) We slept late Monday, got up went to the beach. It was vary nice. Laura and I both have bad headaches. But the beach called kid’s beach (Seal Beach sense Seals took over.) the Seals and tide pools made the hole day worth it. We were still tired though so we did not do to much. We did meet ~S room mate and a couple of there friends for dinner. It was good. ~Z got to open her birthday presents. O she likes Birthdays.

The next day we drove through the mountains to get some good Pie and I discovered wasabi coated peanuts. LOVE THEM. Then we did the wild animal park. It was vary nice. But we got there late, so we only had 2 hours. Still ~Z loved it, and so did I.

The next day we got started late again. Went to sea world. Saw Shamoo. ~Z loved that too. But again we were there late and only had about 2 hours. And lots of places were closed.

Thursday ~S, ~L and I went down to the beach to walk around again. It was a nice relaxing time. Spent some good time with my Brother. Later that day ~S had to leave for a thing of his in Mexico. It was good to see hem though.

Friday, ~L and I rented a car for the day. Then the day got interesting. ~S gave the codes to his house so we could get in on Friday and use the computer so pay some Bills. That was all nice and things were going well when we hear a nock on the door saying “San Diego PD” It looks likes ~S neighbors knew that ~S and his roommate were gone so the called the police. Well we got it all worked out. But it was still a pain.

After that we did not do much the rest of the day. Got a new memory card for the camera. Later that night we ~L and I went to LA to see our (my) friends. Old friends of mine for Boulder ~KLTS. It was nice to see them. I miss them so much. It was on the best times I had there. It was all good time. But it was good to see my friends. They loved ~Z and ~S had lots of toys for ~Z.

Saturday spend the time with mom and dad had good food. Good time on the water. Played with ~Z in the water. That night ~L and I went out on a date. Again so nice. Sunday. Some of the best food we had. Good Mexican food. Cant get that in Seattle. But you can in old town San Diego. I highly recommend old town San Diego, wish I had more time to see it. But it was getting hot and everyone was getting tired. The flight home was ok. The 3 hour layover in San Fran was a little much though. Well pic are up.

I will talk more later. Still trying to get over the vacation. Get energy back…
