Stuff I found on the internet today - Hot Pockets and isolated lyrics, plus Comcast modems - Tuesday January 20, 2015
I was on the internet today and what follows is what I found.
I've been paying Comcast $10 a month for a modem for I don't know how long. It has VOIP capabilities that I don't even use.
It turns out that there's a lot of different modems that you can buy to replace your Comcast modem and your monthly equipment rental fee.
I already knew that, but this site made me think I probably should get rid of my Comcast provided modem and get my own.
This is a list of modems that are compatible with Comcast internet service. A lot of these devices are listed for cheap on places like eBay and Amazon.
If you isolate the vocal tracks of some famous rock and pop music singers, they sound ridiculous. Running With the Devil by Van Halen will never sound the same after listening to David Lee Roth's isolated vocals from that song.
I like the idea of Hot Pockets, and sometimes I'll buy them, but once I bite into one I realize why it's so seldom that I buy them.
The basic idea behind the Hot Pocket is cool. It's an easy to eat food that you can eat while holding it in one hand. It can taste like pizza, or ham and cheese, or anything you can imagine. But the name brand ones taste kind of gross to me.
I made a homemade version of hot pockets last year. I made several huge batches and stored them in the freezer so I could have them whenever I wanted them.
This site is where I got the inspiration.
Greenfoot is a simple IDE for developing Java that is tailored for kids and beginners.
My son has been wondering if I can teach him Java, and I'm wondering if Greenfoot is a good starting point for that. There's also Alice, which I'm considering.
Anyway, this is the first of a series of tutorials for Greenfoot. I might just follow it and see if it's what I need to teach my son how to program in Java.
