El Paso Surf Ranch

So I had a great idea.
Man-made waves and a dude ranch rolled into one.
The Ultimate Surf & Turf, halfway between Houston and Los Angeles!

Investors needed.

Need to clean up that hard drive? Chances are you have multiple copies of files. Gemini finds them and lets you delete them from inside the app, which means you can get more room on your drive.

I have been using this program for a couple of years. It works great. You should give it a try if you write code for the web.

Overly ambitious?

UPDATE: I have at this point abandoned the task of creating a new design every day. Had to make some money.

I set myself up for a Herculean task. Post a new design every day. So far, that comes to 77 designs or “projects”.
Some are good, some are stuff I pulled from the archive and three or four have really been good (opinions are of course mine).
So this is a shot of all the designs completed thus far in 2010. Whew! Looks fairly impressive, and again that is just my opinion.

Zappa, Frank

Zappa, Frank

Frank Vincent Zappa (December 21, 1940 – December 4, 1993) was an American composer, electric guitarist, record producer, and film director. In a career spanning more than 30 years, Zappa wrote rock, jazz, electronic, orchestral, and musique concrète works. He also directed feature-length films and music videos, and designed album covers. Zappa produced almost all of the more than 60 albums he released with the band Mothers of Invention and as a solo artist.

In his teens, he acquired a taste for percussion-based avant-garde composers such as Edgard Varèse and 1950s rhythm and blues music. He began writing classical music in high school, while at the same time playing drums in rhythm and blues bands—he later switched to electric guitar.

Yardbirds

Yardbirds

The Yardbirds are an English rock  band that had a string of hits in the mid 1960s, including “For Your Love”, “Over, Under, Sideways, Down” and “Heart Full of Soul”. The group is notable for having started the careers of three of rock’s most famous guitarists: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page, all of whom were in the top fifteen of Rolling Stone’s 100 Top Guitarists list (Clapton as #4, Page as #9, and Beck as #14). A blues-based band that broadened its range into pop and rock, The Yardbirds were pioneers in the guitar innovation of the ’60s: fuzz tone, feedback, distortion, backwards echo, improved amplification, etc. The band’s disintegration led to the formation of the rock band Led Zeppelin, by Jimmy Page in 1968.

The bulk of the band’s most successful self-written songs came from bassist/producer Paul Samwell-Smith who, with singer/harmonica player Keith Relf, drummer Jim McCarty and rhythm guitarist/bassist Chris Dreja, constituted the core of the group. The band reformed in the 1990s, featuring McCarty, Dreja and new members.
