10 Life Principals

LightBulb Moments….

After watching a series of TED videos I came to a realisation that I keep “re-learning” some really tough life principles. It’s almost like falling down a hole and realising while at it’s bottom, “Is this not the same hole I fell down before, oh wait yes, I was supposed to avoid it……DOH!” So to side-step this “insanity”, I’ve come to 10 Fundamental Principles for my LIFE; to anchor, guide and remind me.

  1. Life’s purpose begins and ends in Christ and for Christ (Dane Balia – NOT YET)
  2. Nothing takes the place and time of MY family (Dane Balia – NOT YET)
  3. Don’t try be better than someone else, learn from them. (John Wooden)
  4. Honesty above all things, Grace right by it’s side to intervene (Dane Balia – NOT YET)
  5. Success for me is my potential maximised for Christ, my family and for those who I can influence (Dane Balia – NOT YET)
  6. There is nothing more painful than trying to be someone else. Be all you can BE (United States Army), you the BEST AT IT.
  7. Understanding the problem is 80% of the solution. (Dane Balia – NOT YET)
  8. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16 KJB
  9. “He did each single thing as if he did nothing else” – Charles Dickens
  10. “A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight.” – Proverbs 11:1 KJB

Some Basic Drawings I’ve Done

I’ve been working on a Gospel Tract, one that is representation of how I present the Gospel on the streets; makes it easier to remember and understand if they go home and read it, after you have spoken to them. Kind of give’s it context, or so I think.

Needless to say, here are some “drawings” I made for it, it will be for a Black and White Tract (it’s cheaper to print), so I was looking for a clipart kind of look. Can’t wait to finish the tract and put it online, maybe someone could benefit from it, or praise God, “believe on the LORD Jesus Christ”.

Alternatives to Session

Session has a problem in the Web World, as based upon your Session Policy, objects could be added and built to the extent of leaving reasonable large chunks of “user objects” in memory for a large space of time.

The alternatives all leave the same problem, when you do not have an Event to indicate it is now time to DELETE the object (as more than one page may make use of it).

Here is a suggestion – CACHE object (with Expiration)

                DataTable users = new DataTable();

 

                if (Cache[“users”] != null)

                {

                    // users = getUsers(customer);

                    Cache.Add(“users”, users, null, System.Web.Caching.Cache.NoAbsoluteExpiration, new TimeSpan(0, 60, 0), System.Web.Caching.CacheItemPriority.Default, null);

                }

                else

                {

                    users = (DataTable)Cache[“users”];

                }

Sitting All Day is Bad

sitting-is-killing-you (compliments of LifeHacker)

If you a developer, programmer or IT geek in general, sometimes we get caught ‘trying to solve a problem’ that can leave us bound to our desks for a period longer than we would like. Occasionally I find myself developing for up to 3 hours at a time. But this is bad, how bad?

Read the article below:

PS. I’ve downloaded WorkRave and going to start implementing a one-hour schedule.
