Executing a PowerShell Script Like a Batch File

powershell_2

If you have ever tried to execute a PowerShell script (files ending in .PS1) by double-clicking on the file, you will have noticed that instead of running the script, it opens a text editor.

Wireless Lucid Dreaming Goggles

LD_large_logo

I’ve tried to create a pair of lucid dreaming goggles before, but never this advanced. The basic idea behind them is to give you a visual cue when it detects REM sleep, the period of sleep where you are dreaming. This visual cue can be seen even though you are asleep, and assists in allowing you to realize that you are dreaming.

Smileyfight!

Mr. 51

So this entry will be much shorter than previous ones, partially because it is getting late, and also because there is not much technical about this project. The other day, I simply had a hankering to make something of the AJAX flavor. There is no XML, but rather JSON. In the end I had an […]

CSS Fun

quote example

The first one is by far the more interesting. Using all three of the above technologies, I created an interactive quote-display webapp. Should […]

LocateStuff: Google Maps when you need them!

LocateStuff

So I have been searching for apartments lately, in an unfamiliar state. Because I don’t know the area very well, I found myself going back and forth between apartment listings and Google Maps. This was very tedious, so I created LocateStuff. It’s a GreaseMonkey script (which is an add-on for Firefox) that gives you fast and easy access to Google Maps on ANY webpage. You can have multiple maps on a page, and you can move them around to still see the webpage underneath. Download it and give it a try!

Learning C#

uScribble

So over the spring break, I wrote a quick ~450 line C# program in order to learn the language. Within a day or two I had uScribble, an automatic screen-raster-renderer. To put it simply, it hijacks your mouse and draws things for you. Jumping from Java to C# was actually easier than I had thought. uScribble was basically a from-scratch copy of a similar Java application I had made in the past.

Feats of MySQL and Impresario

Impresario Database Map

I am currently working with three other teammates to develop a collaborative template-driven document creation tool, awesomely named ‘Impresario’. I will post more on what it is and what it looks like later, when the next iteration of the user interface is completed. In the meantime, I wanted to share some of the back-end work that we have done.
